Kiko Ink Blue.


Kiko Nail Lacquer 335 Ink Blue - £3.90

I'm a sucker for a good blue nail polish and this is one of them. A recent holiday purchase, I picked this up in a Kiko store on our last day in spain. I'd never been up close and personal with anything Kiko before and was excited the moment my eyes laid on the store! It was actually rather overwhelming, and I spent far too long meandering around thinking about what to buy when I could have easily walked away with a bucket load of goodies. I sadly narrowed my choices down to this gorgeous polish and an eyeshadow pencil that you'll be seeing soon as it's awesome.

I've been meaning to pick up a bright cobalt shade like this for such a long time, a Barry M gelly paint or Bourjois number perhaps but I was on a bit of a self imposed spending ban over summer and felt guilty whenever I even stepped into Boots. Thank goodness that is over!! 

Unfortunately this is one of those shades that is so hard to capture and it is actually a lot darker in real life, a real inky blue. It flashes the vibrant blue above when in the sun or under artificial light and is one of those shades that keeps you smitten and staring at your fingertips for hours.
The formula is pretty decent too, easy to apply (two coats here) and extremely glossy. It only chipped once after a large washing up session and lasted pretty well up until yesterday when I ended up picking it all off while distracted, oops! 

Have you tried anything from Kiko? I want more! ;)

  6. I am a fan of Blue nail polish too & this one is a pretty blue! It looks very glossy. £3.90 is a bargain price. I want to visit a Kiko store really bad. I need to visit London so I can check out their range. Ive heard such great things about them

  7. This looks like a similar shade to what's on my nails now; Essie's Mesmerized! If you like blues, you should give it a look!
