TNCC - Untrieds #3 - Kiko 311 (Electric Pink)

Good evening everyone,

two more untried manicures to go, and here's one of them. This one was not planned, I just didn't feel like changing the base polish and started doodling on top of it, to make it 'different' from the first day.

The base is Kiko 311, a now discontinued bright pink shimmery polish. Or at least, I can't find it on the page anymore. I'm wearing two coats, but I felt that it needs three to be really opaque when worn solo. That was one reason why I added nail art... to cover up those patches. The color is pretty, but I found it was drying a bit slower than what I'm used from Kiko. So well, I don't regret buying it, but it won't be my favorite Kiko polish.


So I added some simple flowers on the second day using yellow, orange and white acrylic paint. After topcoating, I added a white half pearl to each nail while the topcoat was still wet. They wore better than expected.



Two more days of pink with flowers added, then it had to make room for untried mani #4. I really want it to be summer. xD

What do you think of the color combination pink/orange? Do you find it wearable (not necessarily limited to nails)?

  2. Super schöne Farbkombi. Pink und Orange gefällt mir unheimlich gut - trage ich auch grade. Bei den Perlchen hätte ich allerdings auch Bedenken gehabt. Ich denke da mit Schrecken an meine Glequins zurück ;o).

    Liebe Grüße,
    Elena

    1. Ich bekomm oft zu hören, dass das eine Augenkrebs-Farbkombi ist. Ich find sie schön... Aber jedem das seine. Dass du deine Glequins verloren hast wundert mich ja - weil die doch im Vergleich zu den Perlchen eher flach sind. Störrische Teile ;) Ich hab jedenfalls kein Perlchen nachgeklebt. Man hats zum Glück nicht so gesehen, wo was abgegangen ist xD
