Kiko 521 ~ Pearly Ocean and 529 ~ Metallic Beetle



Kiko 521 ~ Pearly Ocean and 529 ~ Metallic Beetle
Along with H2-OHHH from NailNation 3000

Kiko deserves more love in blog land. They make really good polishes at a very reasonable price. As far as I know they have only released four holos so far – and they’ve been discontinued by now. But if they released more I am sure that more people would see what a cool brand it really is.

My boyfriend picked these two beauties for me. First 521 Pearly Ocean, which is a lovely sky blue shimmer. Easy to apply, covers well in two fast drying coats. A lovely polish for sure.

Here it is:


I like blues like this. I applied a wide stripe of 529 Metallic Beetle down the middle of each nail. It’s a very dark blue with shimmer. Then I added a striped down the middle of that with NailNation 3000’s H2-OHHH. I finished the whole thing off with a layer of topcoat, and here’s the final mani:


My pictures make the Metallic Beetle look black, but it isn’t. It’s more like blackened blue. I think the H2-OHHH completes the mani perfectly.


Here are the three beauties:



I Kiko.
  

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Lots of shimmer
Overall impression: I love it. It’s easy to work with and beautiful too!

  2. I love the end result, but the beetle is a bit too metallic for me on it's own :)

    1. I totally understand that. It's too dark for me on its own :)

  3. I like opaque shimmer blues like this. I have a very old very sheer shimmer blue from Kiko and I wish it would be more opaque.

    1. I don't like sheer polishes much. Even when they're really pretty I don't have the patience for all the layers. :)
