Kiko Milano Holographic Nail Lacquer ~ 004 Review & Swatch

 

So we finally have a holographic nailpolish in India. *Yay* I was always tempted to get a holo nailpolish whenever I stumbled upon the gorgeous swatches of foreign brands. But the Indian brands are not truly up to the mark as compared to nailpolish game abroad. So one thing I like about Kiko Milano (which is still realtively new in Indian market) is that they launch new products in India about the same time they launch internationally. Holographic range was launched in Sept/Oct last year and I picked this beautiful purple shade 004. There are only 6 shades in this range and all the colors are pastel colored and not too bright. This is probably to bring out the holo effect more intensely.

To be honest, when I tried this nailpolish in the store I didn’t take much shine to it as I was expecting more bright colors but among the options available, this one seemed best. However, when I applied this nailpolish at home the first time, I was awestruck with its beauty. See the swatches below and you will know why.

 

Price: Rs 550 for 10 ml

 

Kiko Milano Holographic nail lacquer 004 review

Kiko Milano Holographic Nail Lacquer comes in round glass bottle with black cap. The cap is removable and the brush cap is underneath. Shade number and other details are stickered at the back in form of booklet (which has 6 pages btw!). The brush is short and not too wide but picks up enough quantity for one coat application.

Pigmentation is amazing and formula is smooth and easy to apply. It builds to full opacity in 1-2 coats, depending on how thick coats you apply. It dries fairly quickly and there is no waiting between application of  multiple coats.

Kiko Milano Holographic nail polish in shade 004 is a pastel lavender purple color with beautiful holographic microshimmer. The holo effect is heavily visible under  sunlight/ flash and faintly visible indoors. The holo effect is not in-your-face kind, but is subtle and fine.  I have taken pics under different lighting to show the depth of holo. The pics taken indoor are a tad darker than the actual color, which is pastel. Most of the pics are taken indoor in natural sunlight, unless stated otherwise.

The nailpolish stays put for 3 days without tip wear and 5 days without chipping. Price wise this is a bit expensive nailpolish, but I didn’t mind the price as I was too excited to be trying a holo nailpolish; plus the quantity is quite big.

If you are not much into holo effect and like glitter nailpolish more, do check out my favorite purple glitter nailpolish  HERE.

Do check my instagram video at the end of this post to see the Holographic effect in action.

Overall, I am in LOVE with this nailpolish! Kiko Milano holographic nailpolish comes in a sturdy, round bottle with black cap. The brush is wide and picks enough product for one coat. The pigmentation is amazing and goes fully opaque in 2-3 coats. It dries quickly and lasts 5 days without chipping.  The shade 004 is a beautiful lavender color with gorgeous holographic shimmer. The shimmer is more profound in sunlight/flash. This is the first holographic nailpolish in India and I am in love. Though I wish these came in more colors.
