Kiko Milano Part Four: Blues, Purples & plums

Kiko Milano: Part Four – Blues, Purples & Plums

As I stated in the first post of this series, I bought a load of Kiko Milano nail polishes in their awesome sale, for 75p each, which are mostly still available for £1. Kiko Milano is an Italian brand that was established in 1997. Their nail lacquers are Toluene, Camphor, DBP and Formaldehyde FREE and come in 11ml bottles. Today I’m finishing off the blues and venturing into the purples! Another bunch of shades with great formulas and shiny finishes. 

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 armour of light.

I’m keeping descriptions to a minimum due to all the colours I have to share! All of these are 2 coaters.
