Nail of the Day - Kiko 280

Rating: 7/10

Kiko is a budget Italian make-up brand which I first discovered in Sicily in 2010. The shade 280 is a bright, creme orange that I purchased for about €3.90, which is a bargain considering the formula, application and wear-time. I don't wear it often, but every time I do I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I like it. It's bright and happy, and the application is fairly stress free.

The formula is a cream so it is prone to streaking and it is a little opaque after 2 coats, but considering the difficulty of producing an orange nail polish, the formula is still good and fairly easy to work with. However, when I applied my Essie Good to Go topcoat weird things did start to happen (the whole polish dragged) so I wouldn't recommend applying a topcoat until the polish is completely dry. Without a topcoat, you'll get about 3 good days of wear before chips.

I'm off to Italy again this year, so no doubt I'll be returning with some more Kiko polishes to add to my collection... Woohoo!
