Hi girls!

This is my second KIKO polish - number 255! There were two holo polishes in store but I picked up only one (I'm soooo stupid :D) The other one is warm holo purple, similar to OPI DS Extravagance.

KIKO 255 - cool-toned holographic deep purple. The formula of this polish is very nice - it applied easily and dried reasonably fast on me. However when it dried it left a bit gritty finish so I had to use a topcoat. The first two pictures are in the direct sunlight and you can see the awesome holo particles. Of course it looks MUCH better in real life! Removal was ok, the holo particles didn't cause me much trouble :)

Comparison of KIKO 255 with OPI DS Extravagance. KIKO is much closer to Color Club Wild Heart (don't own) and to A England Lady Of The Lake. Looking at the following photo now I should've do comparison with lady Of The Lake...well never mind :D

Hello lovelies!

Oh my! Christmas is so near and I've done only few holiday themed manicures! Well here is one more :) I got inspired by few snowflake manicures I saw on another blogs and decided to create my own version. This time no stamping, no stickers only freehand.

So for this manicure I've used two coats of OPI Roadhouse Blues, then I painted gradient tips with Revlon Star glitter. When everything dried I started to paint the snowflake. Excuse my amateurism, I still don't have proper brush so it's not perfect.

Despite that I really like the results and my boyfriend liked it too! He told me to do this mani on Christmas day! *WOW* That's like first time he liked something that much he wanted me to do it again :D What about your boyfriends/husbands? Do they 'get' your nail polish and make up hobby?
