NOTD: KIKO Mirror Nail Lacquer Golden Rose

13. April 2013
Honestly, I never went inside a KIKO store, although I have one near my place. But recently I heard about a mirror nail polish they have and I decided to have a look at their store, finally :D
I bought a bottle of KIKO’s Mirror Nail Lacquer in color No. 630 called “Golden Rose”.

Here is the description from
Mirror Nail Lacquer, limited edition mirror effect nail polish with an ultra-radiant, metallic finish.
The special mirror formula is enriched with aluminum micro-pearls with a strong reflective power, creating a glossy metallic effect on the surface of the nail.
After application, the texture dries, leaving a chrome, ultra-radiant finish. Thanks to the metallic pigments, the nails are dressed in vibrant, chrome shades.
The flat shape of the brush ensures a perfect, smudge-free application. The length, flexibility and density of the bristles allow the ideal amount of polish to be released and applied evenly to the nail, reducing the risk of streaks.
Formulated without adding aggressive ingredients such as Toluene, Camphor, DBP or Formaldehyde.
Available in 15 metallic colours.
Hypoallergenic = formulated to ensure minimum instance of allergic reactions.
Chrome and glossy with a mirror effect. Thanks to the innovative Mirror Nail Lacquer formula, the nail is perfectly dressed in ultra-radiant, metallic colours.
Before application, prepare the nail using the Nail File Glossing Buffer: use side 1 to smooth the surface of the nail and eliminate any irregularities, and side 2 to polish it.
Apply a base layer of nail polish to the nails, allow to dry and proceed with the first application of Mirror Nail Lacquer.
Once dry, apply the second layer of nail polish.
The perfect mirror effect can only be seen when the nail polish is completely dry.

I used a base coat and applied one layer of the nail polish. The consistency is a bit vicious, but it really opaque using only one stroke (although they recommend two stokes in the product description I think one is enough). due to the consistency it is not easy to achieve an eaven layer, at least I had some problems. It looks laso best on nails with a very smooth surface. I have some creases on a few nails from working and the nail polish doen’t look to nice on these parts. If you have healthy and smooth nails you won’t have a problem with it. The color is really nice and looks just like the color in the bottle. If you like the colors and you can get your hands on them, they are worth trying and a nice alternation to the glitter and sandstyle nail polishes ;)
A bottle contains 11 ml and costs 4,90 €.
