There’s really nothing not to like about the new Kiko Power Pro Nail Polish collection – 45 strong with some power pigments so that you truly get a block of colour onto the nail. What I really like though, is the tactile element – the bottles are shaped so that they just feel natural in your hand with smoothed off curves and edges.
As far as colour is concerned, Kiko has opted for some super brights (yellows and reds) but also colours that are a bit less flashy on the nail such as the muted raspberry that I have and even the bright turquoise has a bit of a greyed edge to the colour. Kiko Power Pro Nail Polish promises up to 7 days of high gloss (I’ve just tried a Nails Inc colour for longevity – a full seven days before it had to come off and that’s unprecedented for me!). Texture wise, Kiko Pro is slick and erring to the thicker side – I think that consistency is everything going forward; thinner polishes need to up their game really – and if I had to liken it to any polish consistency that I know well, it would be Bourjois. Similarly, Kiko has a fat brush that follows the nail shape, like Bourjois, which means application is very simple. Oh, and they’re 5-free. For £4.90 a pop, with all the quality is there, I think they’re an absolute bargain.
I also love the Kiko Colour Twister glosses – these are all about the first sighting though; the minute you get your finger in there, those pretty swirls are all gone and things get a little gloopy. I have Shade 02 here; a creamy tangerine shade – it’s far too strong on the vanilla scent for me, but super-glossy on the lip. These beauty candies are £3.50 (reduced from £4.90) HERE.
