Kiko: #517 Metallic Steel Blue


Kiko: #517 Metallic Steel Blue
Metallic greyish blue with shimmer

Today I'm wearing an older Kiko. The formula is great and so is the coverage. It's possible to get away with one single coat. I used two coats though and the drying time is good.

I applied a layer of Color Club's "Pearl-Spective", which is a pearly pink shimmer topper.

The I stamped on top of it all. The design is from the stamping plate "Marianne Nails No. 03". I stamped with Colour Alike's stamping polish "We Can Boogie".

This is the end result of my efforts today.

I think the hot pink looks really great on this. It perks it all up.

Here's a picture to show off Color Club's shimmer "Pearl-Spective". It's one coat of the shimmer topper over two coats of Kiko's #517 "Metallic Steel Blue".
