Untried Polish Challenge - Newest
I was supposed to publish manicures from Untried Polish Challenge on Fridays, but lately my plans are not working out the way they should...but I'm still glad that I'm sticking with this challenge because it is a really good way to try out some untried polish. This manicures means I reached the middle of the challenge which makes me even more proud, since it's been a long time since I managed to keep up with my derisions for more than a week or two =). Enough of my rambling...
For this part of the challenge I had to use my newest untried polish, this was easy since you always remember which one you got last. This week I got 7 new nail polishes in a swap with a lovely girl named Sabina, which made it a bit harder to pick out one, but in the end I decided for Kiko 494.
I must say that this polish is really not meant to be mine! Firstly I applied it on Friday, but I managed to get a big dent in my manicure before taking pictures. Because I was busy I wasn't able to reapply it before Saturday evening ( at that time I was tired and lazy and I really didn't feel like taking pictures). Well than on Sunday morning I went to work and managed to get chips. Now I'm finally writing my post with the third application of this polish this week. They say thee times a charm, and I must say that it probably works for this polish too.
I must say that it looks amazing, but it chips really fast and that is not common for Kiko. I must say I'm slightly disappointed.
For the pictures I applied 3 coats of Kiko 494 without top coat.
Isn't the shimmer in this one amazing?
I really love the colour, but the wear time is just a big disappointment.
I spiced it up a bit with a gradient and some stamping.
