Nail polishes are usually one of my favorite part of any makeup collection, with KIKO Milano Neo Noir being no exclusion. I think that nail polishes have been my first ever beauty obsession and I surely couldn’t miss another gorgeous dark shade like KIKO Milano Chrome Intense Nail Lacquer in 03 Shady Grey.
KIKO Milano Chrome Intense Nail Lacquer ($9.00) – Bright nail lacquer with a high concentration of light-reflecting pearls to create unique looks. The colour is bold and uniform. The brush dipped in the lacquer takes the right amount of product immediately and spreads it gradually and evenly. The brush’s long bristles and round cut allow you to apply the polish in a single stroke.
The KIKO Milano Neo Noir Collection for Fall 2016 has recently been released featuring a huge amount of amazing products in gorgeous autumn-inspired shades. There are four nail polishes in this collection: Chrome Intense Nail Lacquer in Classic Rosy Taupe (muted mauvy pink), Precious Amaranth (deep crimson red), Shady Grey (deep Oxford blue) and Sculpted Blue (bright ultramarine).
KIKO Milano Chrome Intense Nail Lacquer in 03 Shady Grey is a beautiful deep Oxford blue shade with a muted grey-ish base and a huge amount of extremely finely milled silver shimmer that makes the finish strongly metallic. It goes on almost opaque with the first coat and the second coat makes the surface very rich in color.
As the for the brush – it is not my favorite. It is quite thick, short, fluffy and has a square-rounded tip that makes the application less comfortable (my favorite brush is the Essie one). It gets too much product out of the bottle and due to short bristles it is hard to cover the nail bed evenly in one stroke. Though it is still manageable – take into account that I have longer nail now. The nail polish works well with both base and top coat I prefer using and dries quite quickly. It wore for 6 days on my nails while slightly wearing off the tips.
Even though I am not the biggest fan of the brush I still enjoyed this particular nail polish – mainly because of the color. There aren’t that many dupes to it on the market and it looks very fall-appropriate and sophisticated. I think this will easily compliment a look for a special occasion and it looks gorgeous in everyday life as well. Due to silver shimmer it does not look flat and the formula is good enough that it does not go streaky.
It is a nice nail polish and you can get it if you like the color. But I would also recommend taking a look at their permanent range of affordable Nail Lacquers (like KIKO Nail Lacquer in 338 Light Lavender) that have an amazing quality and are presented in a ton of stunning shades!
Thank you very much for your attention.
Have an amazing day!
