Hiya! Ever since I saw this photo (above) on Pinterest I instantly fell in love with it...It just reminds me of summertime and partying on the beaches of Mykonos! So I set my sights on tracking down the exact nail polish colour. Its quite a bright ocean greeny/blue almost neon and as we are currently going through a pastels phase it was a bit tricky but I think I found a close match by Kiko No. 389 Mint Milk. I'm loving Kiko nail polishes atm...I got my sister to pick up three from their store in Stratford Westfields which I will show you in the next couple weeks.
If you haven't heard of Kiko before, they are an Italian brand selling cosmetics and skincare at high street/'drugstore' prices.
The colour in my photo's have come our a little more pastely than its true colour which is much brighter and slighty more on the green side and although the name of the colour is Mint Milk its definitely brighter than your standard mint creme. The formula and brush can be a touch streaky but if you apply it carefully you should have a nice finish. The great thing about these polishes is they have great staying power! I put two coats and it lasted me a good 5 days. I was also inspired by today's Nail Art & Things post and accented one of my nails with a black nail striping foil I bought from eBay a while back but never got round to using.
So what do you think? If you know of any other polishes like the pic above please let me know! And of you have tried any of Kiko's other makeup or skincare I'd love to know how you got on. I'm pretty intrigued as they're products look great on the website.
These Kiko polishes are £3.90 for 11ml and can be purchased from their stores in Stratford Westfields and Shepherds Bush Westfields, London or on KikoCosmetics.com.
