Kiko Milano: Part Two – Green, Turquoise & Teal

As I stated in my Kiko Milano: Part One post, Ive bought a load of Kiko Milano nail polishes in their awesome sale, for 75p each! They’re currenlty available for £1, a 74% saving. Today I’m sharing the next 10 with you, the green, turqoise and some of the teal shades. Kiko Milano are an Italian brand that were established in 1997. Their nail lacquers are Toluene, Camphor, DBP and Formaldehyde FREE and come in 11ml bottles.

Their description:

  • Nail polish with hardening and strengthening action. 
  • The gel texture gives an extreme lacquered shine and an ideal level of fluidity for perfect control and great ease of application.
  • Special resins facilitate ’adherence of the pigments to the ’nail, creating a strong, elastic layer which, thanks to the long wear active ingredients, heightens durability and the brilliance of the colour.
  • Citral, a natural active ingredient with strengthening and hardening properties, seals and protects the nails creating an unscratchable armor of light.

Once again, I’ll keep the descriptions short and sweet. Kiko Milano Nail Lacquer SwatchesMy lighting was all over the place when I took this – I’m really sorry! I’m so busy right now and I haven’t had the chance to re-do them.

297 – Acid GreenKiko Milano Nail Lacquer Swatch - 297 Acid Green
A vivid bright green that was a little on the thin side and took 3 coats to become opaque. I wouldn’t normally wear this colour in it’s own but I wanted to add some more greens to my collection for nail art.

391 – Grass GreenKiko Milano Nail Laquer Swatch - 391 Grass GreenA slightly darker green but this one is opaque in 2 coats rather than 3. Again, I purchased this for nail art reasons! (Please excuse the weird texture on my middle finger nail, it was my nail patch breaking down!).

354 – Green Forest (no longer available online)Kiko Milano Nail Laquer Swatch -354 Green ForestAs the name suggests, this is a lovely forest green which I can see being useful in Decemeber… I don’t why this photo is slightly out of focus, but it was definitely fine when adjusting the light levels! I think something wetn wrong during the icloud Photo Sharing part of my process. Sorry about that!

347 – Dark Green Kiko Milano Nail Laquer Swatch - 347 Dark GreenThis gorgeous dark green is definitely something I’ll be wearing in the winter months. 2 coats.

346 – Olive DrabKiko Milano Nail Laquer Swatch - 346 Olive DrabThis is a lovely shade of dark-ish olive green. 2 coats.

345 – Jade Green (no longer available online)
Kiko Milano Nail Lacquer Swatch - 345 Jade Green
It’s a shame this one isn’t in stock online anymore, it’s such a beautiful soft sage colour and it’s opaque in just 2 coats. I was surprised at this – most polishes I own in a similar shade take at least 3 coats.

389 – Mint MilkKiko Milano Nail Lacquer Swatch - 389 Mint MilkThis bright turquoise reminds me so much of Wet by Floss Gloss (see swatch here), so if you cant afford to stretch to the £7.50 price tag I highly recommend Mint Milk! It actually took 2 coats compared to 3 for Wet too.

344 – Light Misty Green (no longer available online)344 - Light Misty Green Okay, so this photo is not colour accurate and I’m sorry for that! This is more turquoise and a bit lighter IRL but I still don’t see how it’s light, misty or green – ha! 2 coats.

341 – Cobalt GreenKiko Milano Nail Lacquer Swatch - 341 Cobalt Green
This IS colour accurate. I have no idea why my iphone camera likes some teals and not others! Anyway, I love this colour! 2 coats.

387 – TurquoiseKiko Milano Nail Lacquer Swatch - 387 TurquoiseAgain, this is NOT BLUE!  Check the product link to see that this is actually, as it states, a dark turquoise (or a teal as I would call it). Any suggestions for captuing true colours, especially teals???

Once again, the formula and shiny finish of these polishes are great.

Make sure you keep an eye out for all my Kiko Milano posts coming up over this month & check Part One here.
