I'm so excited right now! I just had to write a blog post immediately and show you a few pictures of my newest holo polish: Peacock Green aka 401 from the newest limited edition by Kiko called Lavish Oriental. I'm really glad I went to my local Kiko store today, because I bought the last three bottles from the nail polish display. Which means, I didn't get all of them, but I got all of the polishes I was really interested in.
For now, let's begin my picture spam of Kiko 401. I always wanted a teal holo and now, I pretty much got what I was looking for~
Let's just say this first: my camera refuses to take proper pictures of holographic polishes. The effect is stronger than what my pictures show. It's not as strong as the China Glaze OMG collection or any Laylas, but it is very visible and it's a linear holo effect!
Peacock Green is a light teal leaning to a light blue. A very summery teal in my opinion. It reminds me of the crystal clear water of the mediterranean sea in Spain. I would have loved it a tad more if it'd lean green, but I'm not going to complain until I have a greenish teal holo with a similar effect for the same price.
Application was a dream for a holo polish. I didn't use any base or top coat for my pictures. The first coat was a little bit patchy, but no way as bad as Make Up Store Greta. It smoothed out with the second coat and the drying time was really good too. When it is drying, it starts to look dull for a while, but then gets glossy again. I'll try later how it works with a top coat. I just hope my new teal love is no stainer.
I'm constantly looking at my fingertips right now... so pretty! The holo effect is very visible even here in front of my notebook... far away from any ray of sunlight. But it's certainly the prettiest in direct sunlight. That's when the full holo-V is showing up in all its glory~
I have no idea how long this limited edition (Lavish Oriental) is going to be on sale. It has not yet shown up on the German Kiko website and I don't think it's been on sale longer than a week. I mean, holos!? How can there by any left after more than a week!? So for all those who have no Kiko store in reach, I definitely recommend to check the online store every now and then. Those holos are worth every cent.
Apropos cent, all four shades (399-402) come in the usual Kiko bottle that holds 11ml (0.37 fl.oz.) and is sold for 4.90€ per polish. That's not exactly cheap, but for a true holo, it's not bad at all. Especially for a teal holo... :D
Okay, picture spam end. What do you think? Do you agree that it looks awesome!?
I'm going to post pictures of the other two tomorrow!
