It seems like the trend of gel-like nail polishes is more and more popular and KIKO jumped on the bandwagon. This trendy Italian brand has released a 5-free Perfect Gel Duo line with 18 shades and today I'll show you one of them.
About Perfect Gel Duo:
"Set of two limited-edition gel effect nail polishes. The colour and top coat combine for a manicure with maximum shine and exceptional hold, thanks to an exclusive technology that activates with natural light. As the days pass, the polish's glossy finish becomes harder, maintaining the shine and colour for up to seven days.
The intense colour is revealed after the second coat. The texture is rich and creamy.
Thanks to the flat brush with its clear bristles, the polish glides on smoothly and easily. The coats go on perfectly evenly. The top coat polish, which is sensitive to natural light, comes in a metallic bottle to better preserve the formula."
KIKO Milky Mint is a minty green creme shade with hints of aqua blue. Two coats were fully opaque and applied easily. The formula seemed little bit thicker which then helped with the plumped gel-like appearance. I waited as per instructions and then applied the top coat. The result was a glossy and perfect manicure. I wore the nail polish for good 4 days without chipping and then I removed it. I'm sure it could stretch few more days if I had let it on.
The instructions state: Apply two coats of coloured nail polish, letting it dry between coats. Before applying the top coat, wait two minutes. Apply the top coat and let it dry for 3 minutes.
Overall it seems like a good nail polish line especially for those who want their polish to last as long as possible but one thing is a bit silly - you get a top coat in every box with colour so if you'll want more colours you'll have to buy the duo set.
KIKO polishes are available at kikocosmetics.co.uk, and at the brand stores.
Have a lovely day! Lucie x
