Kiko Digital Collection ~ Swatches



Kiko Digital Collection ~ #438, 439, 440, 441 and 442
Swatches

I thought I might as well show you the Digital collection from Kiko now I’m at the swatching. The collection has six polishes in it, and I bought five of them.


The first one is #438 Fascinating Burgundy. It’s not really burgundy, but magenta. It’s a jelly with matching glitters in it. It’s easy to work with, and I used two coats plus topcoat for these pictures. Drying time is relatively fast.

Take a look:


This is probably my favourite of the collection.


Mmm yes, delicious!


Verdict:
A winner for sure.


Next one is #439 Cyber Red – a red jelly with red glitters. I have a soft spot for this type of polish, but however nice this one is, it’s not my favourite. I used two coats for my swatches, and it worked in real life. The camera would have preferred a third coat though, but oh well!

Two coats plus topcoat:


It is a beautiful red!


And the glitter is comfortably dense :D


Verdict:
Definitely also a keeper!


Now it’s time for #440 Electron Blue. It’s a vibrant blue jelly with matching glitter. I also used two coats for this one, and I really liked the result.

Two coats plus topcoat:


This colour is really amazing, so vibrant and cool.


This is my favourite pic.


Verdict:
The winners just keep on coming!


Fourth one up is #441 Illusion Green.
I also used two coats for these swatches, but this one had a surprise in it. I didn’t notice it before I looked at the pictures, but Illusion Green has got holo bar glitters in it! Seriously, I could not see that on my nails in real life!

Two coats plus topcoat:


There’s also more holo glitter in this one than there is in the others in the collection.


The holo glitters appear yellow on my pictures, but they changed colours in real life.


Verdict:
I think I’ll try and layer this over a really dark green at some point, to enhance the prettiness of the holo and green-combo!


Last one is #442 Techno Black.
This one is special and the only one in the collection that has micro hologlitter in it. It has also got microglitters in blue. Two coats like the rest of them plus a layer of topcoat:


This is like a beautiful night sky! I love the added blue shimmers!


Here’s a flash picture for you to show off the holo goodness!


Verdict:
I’m not usually a black polish fan, but I like this one because of the added holo and shimmer.

Overall impression:
Oh yes, Kiko also knows how to make great glitters. I am not a fan of jellies in general, but these are really easy to work with, and they only require two coats. I like the quality and I love the colours, so yes, there’s two polished thumbs up from me!
I should mention that there is one more polish in the Digital collection, namely #437 Intuitive Pink, which is a light pink glitter.

The collection was limited edition and is now discontinued.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Relatively fast
Finish: Really cool glitters
Overall impression: Great quality, great colours, great polishes!
Buy again: Yes
