ABC Challenge: Letter M - Kiko Mirror effect Violet (nº 621)

Hello Ladies,

Today for letter M of this ABC Challenge I'll be featuring one of Kiko's Mirror polishes, nº 621 in Violet. I've been holding those pictures specifically for today, and I am proud I've been able to hold for so long :) In case you didn't know, I am the impatient kind of gal. Okay, maybe work has helped a little, but I won't say thanks for that... 

I remember application being a little tricky, but that's normal with mirror effect polishes. Just remember to be extra careful when applying it, and take your time. My ring finger nail is lost under 3+ coats of polish because I couldn't avoid streaks from showing for the life of me. Yup, that's not the one to pick if you're in a hurry and want your claws to look amazing... I learnt that the hard way. What a HUGE relief the pictures were taken before the crime!

LAST CALL for those of you who haven't entered my 100 posts giveaway yet :) It's ending tomorrow, so hurry up!

M.

  3. Oooh it's so pretty and shiny! Have you tried an aquafix base coat yet? I think that really helps with smoothing out the polish just like with some holographic polishes.

    1. I don't have any aquafix! I should, for this one and for my holos... But I keep managing not to find any!

  4. I only have a couple mirror finish polishes - I am not so patient either, and the brush strokes are just bothersome enough for me to not buy this kind of polish. But I do love the way it looks on everyone else. Such a pretty purple too!

  7. I have never tried a mirror polish; I'm a little afraid of them. This one is absolutely gorgeous.

  9. This looks so pretty, but I dread applying any type of metallic polish mostly because of the streaks and unlike you I have no patience!! Gorge!!

  10. To be honest- I don't like mirror/foil finish beacause of the brush strokes... but you can make wonders: there's nothing like that! I'm amazed :)

  11. It's a very pretty polish for you - I join the club of those who aren't too excited about mirror/metallic polishes on myself tho LOL

  12. I love mirror polishes, but they can be tricky to apply. Great job.

  13. Awesome, looks really classy :)

  14. It looks super nice on you! I don't like metallics other than for stamping so I resisted all these Kikos, but I will definitely purchase some when they go on sale (normally in August over here).

  16. What a pretty color! And I like the finish. I love how reflective it is and I don't mind the streaks much. :-)

  19. I bought a couple of Mirror polishes (not this one, but the color is supeer nice!) but I have tried them only on a nail wheel and for stamping, and I had some issues with brush strokes even on fake nails... Hope to do better when I'll paint my real nails! :D

    1. Yeah I had some issues too... The trick is to be patient, I guess! :)

  20. I love mirrors, but the formula is what gets me. You can use a matte top coat over your second coat, then add another careful coat of the mirror polish and that reduces the brushstrokes alot. At least for other people. When I tried it, I gave up since the formula was part of the problem.

    This color is gorgeous though! I'd be willing to give mirror polish another shot for this one!

  22. That's a pretty color! and I have this little thing in my heart for all things mirror-like LOL Is it the crow in me?
    I do admit that I hate those application stripes with these polishes though... Talk about impatient... ;-)

  23. This would be amazing for stamping! I have the Essie Chromes and use them for that since they apply brush strokey.

  25. Beautiful color! I agree with Gini, this would probably work great for stamping too :)
