Rosa Fenicottero

Last week I experienced something which I would describe as KIKOphoria - I was wearing 4 KIKO shades in a row. Out of four that I own. No idea what I would do if I had 20 KIKO polishes, but since I started the topic, I decided to show you one more colour - Kiko #288.

Kiko Rosa Fenicottero (beautiful name, no?) is a fuchsia creme with a glossy finish. Equally I would describe the colour as "Barbie pink", but apparently the perception of Barbie pink varies from person to person. Easy application on 2 coats (hooray to KIKO cremes), no top coat needed.

The colour is nice, but not so easy to catch on the photos. It strongly depends on the light and its type: the polish by itself has a strong blue (i.e. cold) undertone, but it looks a bit warmer under the sun and under the lamps indoors.

Thinking what to do with this nice base for nail art I firstly wanted to stamp over it, but I realised I did it last time - you can check my old swatches by the way :) So this time I just layered a fun glitter on top - Dance Legend Flossy #146.

Those Flossy tops are fun to play with! Here you can see #144 over red, grey and beige, just for example. Recently Dance Legend has launched the new Rio tops - can't wait to get them!

Oh, and the next post will be also about KIKO. Hehe.

  1. У меня есть один кико, но внезапно на той неделе я заказала шесть штук - коллективное помешательство?)
    А цвет очень красивый - фуксию вообще сложно фотографировать, представляю, как он выглядит в реале)

    1. Я как купила 4 лака Кико пару лет назад, так они у меня и стояли без особого почёта, хотя опробованные. А сейчас что-то я ими восхитилась, всеми подряд)

  3. Kiko brand is just the best, isn't it! I love their polishes, have a few already and really wouldn't mind more! :) They just have this awesome variety of colours and they actually don't chip so easily at all.

    1. Kiko rocks, that's true!! I also noticed that they last long on me, even without a top coat! I'm also thinking of getting more! :)

  7. two things - yes, LOVE KIKO cremes, those are just awesome - and: the definition of barbie pink does vary from person to person, so funny!
    and now on your polish: looks gorgeous on you. the flossy topcoat that I tried turned out a bit boring on the nails, but I'm considering getting some of those Rio topcoats too :)

    1. Haha! I define Barbie pink by Barbie furniture colour... Some say that it's rather a pale pink, but that's baby pink for me, not Barbie. Flossie's are fun, at least for me, maybe because I don't own a lot of interesting indies. And Rio tops... can't wait to get them! :)

  8. I love Kiko polishes and I have a lot of them :-) Sometimes I think that having a Kiko shop close to me is beautiful and sometimes it is a little disaster for my wallet :-)
    This combination looks beautiful! :-)
    Here you can find the names of Kiko polishes in english:
