Kiko Life in Rio Sun Show ~ #469, 471, 472, 474 and 475
It’s time for another batch of Kikos, this time it’s some of the Sun
Show collection from spring 2014! There are 10 polishes in the collection, and
I bought five of them. They’re all gorgeous shimmers, enjoying Kiko’s great
All of the polishes have great formulas and I used two coats for each of
my swatches. There is no topcoat involved – these babies are super shiny in
Let me show you what I’m talking about:
First one up is #469 Delicious Mango. It’s bright orange packed with
golden and darker orange shimmers. I don’t buy many orange polishes because I
don’t wear orange very often, but this one was too bright and cheerful to give
Two coats, no topcoat:
Look at that shimmer!
This is a seriously cool orange, I love it!!
Next one up is #471 Juicy Pitaya. It’s hot pink
with something that looks like orange shimmer, and it’s very eye catching.
Two coats, no topcoat:
On this picture it shows that the shimmer has a different colour. I
think it’s orange, or at least golden.
Keeper, that’s all there is to say! :D
Next one up is #472 Tasty Grapes. It’s purple
with golden shimmer; so good it’s almost duochromatic!
Take a look – two coats:
Can you tell that the shimmer has got a different colour?
Verdict: This is funnily enough not one of my favourites. Pretty but not
Next one up is #474 Luxurious Indigo. It’s an
indigo base packed with purple shimmer. The shimmer was definitely not shy on
the nails, but I had such a difficult time catching it on camera. Weird! I
ended up taking the pictures in the bathroom, which is why my fingers suddenly
have a much warmer tone to them. The pictures show the polish colour
Take a look:
The shimmer is amazingly pretty!
Verdict: This is also a cool colour and I like
the shimmery effect.
Last one up is #475 Tropical Blue. It’s sky blue
with what looks like indigo shimmer. Looking at the bottles it looks exactly
the opposite of Luxurious Indigo that I just showed you.
Anyway, here’s what it looks like on the nails:
Wow, right? This is SO pretty!
Verdict: This is my favourite of the bunch. Even
though the indigo shimmer was practically non existent on my nails, the colour
is just amazing. I didn’t want to take this off :D
The polishes I didn’t buy was: #467 Quindim Gold, 468 Samba Pink, 470
Dainty Passion Fruit, 473 Precious Amethyst and 476 Joyful Emerald.
