Kiko Denims ~ #463, 464 and 465



Kiko Denims ~ #463, 464 and 465
Swatches

Kiko started shipping to Denmark recently and that is fantastic! This means I can now get my hand on pretties that were a bit of a challenge to get earlier on in the piece.

Today I’m going to show you three of the eight polishes from the Denim collection. I hardly ever buy an entire collection, and I wouldn’t have bought all eight of these either, but fact is that I was a little bit late, so I missed #462 Tribal Purple, which I really would love to have had.

Anyway, I’ll start out with #463 Evasion Lawn Green.

Great formula, good coverage and drying time. I used two easy coats for my swatches.

Here’s what it looks like.


It’s a green that’s really nice on the eyes imo.


I don’t know what this green makes in a denim collection – I don’t think I’ve ever seen denim or jeans in this colour. It’s a nice shade though and definitely a keeper.


Next one up is #464 Essential Sky Blue.
It’s got the same good formula as its sister, I’ve got no problems to report at all.
Take a look at how pretty she is.


Now we’re approaching denim blue :D


I like Essential Sky Blue too – it’s such a nice basic blue that can be used under a lot of different nail art.


Last one is #465 British Jeans.
This is what I’d call “real” denim blue, and I like it.


It dries up a fraction darker than it looks in the bottle.


I don’t know how much I’m going to use this polish, so it might have to be moved on down the line – I haven’t quite decided yet.


Bonus pictures!!

I took a striper and made stripes with the three colours, and I ended up with this design.


There is a layer of topcoat to protect the design and to make the polishes become a unit.

Overall impression:
Kiko make some really great collections. The quality of the Denim collection live up to my high expectations: Kiko make great polishes, no doubt about that! It’s a shame that many of their collections live a relatively short life on the shelves in the shops, so you have to be fast to get what you want.


The collection was limited edition and is now discontinued.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Fast
Finish: Denim effect that dries up semi matte
Overall impression: Really good quality polishes!
Buy again: Yes

  1. The two blues are stunning! The green is okay but not as nice as both blues! I do like the finish on these polishes :-)

    They look good together as well :-)

  3. Kiko polishes are very good for the price and lots of colours to choose from. Very cute the manicure. My favourite is the first shade.

  4. Green is one of my favorite colors, so Evasion Lawn Green is my absolute favorite, but your bonus pictures wowed me and has stolen the spotlight from the beautiful green polish. You made an eye catching design and the color combination is perfect!

  7. I love all 3 colors. I agree with you though - not sure why there is green in a denim collection. I really like the striped design you did with all 3 :)
