Kiko Holographic ~ 05 Starry Blue

Blue holo

This is the second last polish in my Kiko Holographics series. There are six polishes in the collection and I have already shown you the first four. There’s a link to the rest of the collection at the bottom of this post.

The formula and the coverage is really good; I used two coats for full opacity and didn’t experience any problems with the application. I actually think I could have got away with one single coat here, the blue is really opaque! The drying time is good.

The stamp I used is from the plate BP-L061 and I stamped with El Corazón’s stamping polish “First Kiss”. The stamping design covered way more of the blue than I had imagined! I made 3-4 white dots in the middle of each stamp.

This is the final manicure including a layer of topcoat. The photo is taken with flash.

Here’s the same thing in my lightbox. I like these colours together!

And here’s “05 Starry Blue” on its own; two coats and no topcoat.

This is the stuff I used for my manicure. I forgot to add the white polish I used for the dots. It was El Corazón’s Number 418/1.


This is such a lovely blue, I really like it!

Kiko Holographic ~ 03 Blush Rose

Here’s the third post in my Kiko Holographics series. There are six in the collection and I am going to show them to you over the next days. Today I’m going to show you the third one in the collection, and there’s a link to the rest of the collection at the bottom of this post.

The formula and the coverage is really good; I used two coats for full opacity and didn’t experience any problems with the application. The drying time is good.

I am really quite surprised over how much I like this nude-ish rosy polish. I usually like my polishes to be in your face, but this one looks so sweet on my nails. I dig it!

The flowers and the bow is from a big box full of colourful nail decorations from evilbay.

This is the final manicure including a layer of topcoat. The photo is taken with flash.

Here’s the same thing in ordinary daylight, no sun. Doesn’t this look really cute on my nails?

I am so impressed with this polish. I’ll go as far as to say that if I was being asked to choose one nude polish to wear and I could only wear that, it would be this one. Impressive, right?

Here are the links to the other holographic polishes in the collection:

04 Golden Lavender
06 Graphite


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Holographic
Overall impression: Wow, what a sweet nude-y rosy polish!

Kiko Holographic ~ 02 Golden Champagne

Soft golden holo

Like I wrote yesterday: I bought the entire collection of Kiko’s holographic polishes. There are six in the collection and I am going to show them to you over the next days. Today I’m going to show you the second one in the collection, and there’s a link to the rest of the collection at the bottom of this post.

The formula and the coverage is really good; I used two coats for full opacity and didn’t experience any problems with the application. The drying time is good.

The orange dots is made with Sephora’s Formula X: “Magma” and the French lily is from Aliexpress I think.

This is the final manicure including a layer of topcoat. The photo is taken with flash.

Here are the two polishes I used for my manicure.

Kiko Holographic ~ 02 Golden Champagne and Sephora Formula X: “Magma”

I am usually more into silver polishes than golden ones, but this one really suits me. I love the tone and the softness of the shade.

Overall impression: This is a really spectacular gold!
