Kiko and Kiko Sugar Sparkles

Kiko and Kiko Sugar Sparkles
Shimmer and glitter

I bought six polishes from Kiko on my last vacation: 2 shimmers and 4 glitters. Today I’m going to show you four of them: The 2 shimmers and 2 of the glitters.

First #60 from their Power Pro collection. It’s a dark blue with lighter blue shimmers. Easy to work with and it dries fast. I used two easy coats for this:

I really like it.
I applied one of the glitters over it. It’s #032 from the Sugar Sparkles collection and it’s a clear base with sky blue matte microglitters and purple shimmer. I applied a single coat over the dark blue:

I’m pretty sure it can be opaque on its own, but I like it over a darker base.

The next one is #58 from the Power Pro collection. It is a dark red with shimmer. The formula is really good and the polish covers well. I used two easy and fast drying coats for this:

I love reds like this. I applied one of the other Sugar Sparkles over it: #030. That’s also a clear base with shimmer and glitter. The glitter is baby pink and the shimmer is golden pink I think, it’s hard to tell. I used a single coat over the red.

Here’s the final mani including a layer of topcoat:

I would have swatched the last two Sugar Sprinkles but I changed my mind last minute. I’ll do it soon though :)

Number of coats: 2 of the shimmers, 1 of the glitters
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Shimmer / Microglitter and shimmer
Overall impression: Very good quality polishes, I love Kiko
Buy again: Yes to all
