Hey all,


I really hope to not bombard you guys with an overload of Nail Polish reviews by KIKO, but since I bought so many of them from my Italy trip, I feel obliged to share with you all the pretty shades and some reviews on these. The polish I have on the blog today is from the KIKO quick Dry Nail Lacquer range in the shade #850 Cerulean.


Priced at € 4.90 , and occasionally available on discounts, KIKO Nail Polishes are probably the best things that you can buy at a KIKO Store.


The KIKO Quick Dry Nail Lacquer comes in a rounded bottle, a little different from the normal KIKO Nail Lacquers that come in a cuboidal bottle. The brush is also flat and wide and helps in spreading the polish more easily on my broad nail beds.


The shade #850 Cerulean is a true shade of Cerulean Blue, gyrating ever so gently between a sky blue and cyan. On the first glance it looked similar to Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, however it is definitely lighter than Pacific Blue when swatched side by side.


The nail polish was a little patchy on the first coat, and although the second mostly covered it up, you can still see some bald spots on the nails in the pictures below. It took almost the same time to dry as the regular KIKO Nail Lacquers to dry and I really can't understand why it had to be pulled in the Quick Dry range.


Longevity wise, it lasts roughly about 3-4 days on me, a general trend on my nails with the so called Quick Dry Nail Lacquers. There is no chipping as such, but noticeable fading on the edges and the loss of shine that is there for the first 2 days of wear.




My experience with the KIKO Quick Dry Nail lacquer in 850 Cerulean hasn't been the best and it seems quite inconsistent with the general quality of the KIKO Polishes that I have so far tried. Nonetheless, it is a pretty shade, quite unique in my collection and across many locally available brands, so it does get some love from me. I really do wish that the consistency of the polish and its staying ability could have been much better looking at the general quality across KIKO Polishes that I have so far tried. For the same reason, I would only rate it a 3.5 on a scale of 5.
