KIKO Daring Game Collection | Poker Nail Lacquer - Swatches and Review

*PR Sample
Hey loves!
I hope you've had a great weekend? 
Mine has been pretty hectic getting things in order and finally parting with baby bits I've kept *sigh*, reality was faced - I don't have a little baby anymore. Instead bold characters of 3 & nearly 5. Darn! 

On with what I got up to today, some swatching! I feel like I haven't done any for a while now? Maybe it was the time off but yay for some ;) 
Today I have 4 awesome polishes from KIKO Cosmetics new Limited Edition Fall Collection called Daring Game. 
This collection has 6 stunning nail polishes, all of which have cool lids with the tops looking like dice to match the polish number. These have names on the website (which I will include here) but only numbers on the bottle. 
Claims - ''Gel-effect full-colour nail lacquer. The special formula releases an intensely pigmented and even colour for an ultra-glossy, smooth manicured finish mimicking the plumped gel effect but without the use of UV.''



01 Prestigious Taupe | A stunning soft light mushroom colour, I really love this one after not being so wowed at first look. 


--



03 Suggestive Red | The stunner of all reds, a super cute cherry red with just that classic feel. I really adore this one, I'm not a red lover usually but wow oh wow.


--



05 Exclusive Blue | The one that stole my heart! Such a stunning bright cobalt blue, this reminds me of Nails Inc Baker Street. 


--



06 Slick Bluenoir | A classic black, well by the name I am guessing it's a blue-black but IMO it's straight black. Lol. 


Overall?
Fab! Formula on all were great, full coverage in 2 coats. I found 01 to have a slightly thinner formula... And 05 was on the more sheer side so on some people they may need 3 coats. I really love the theme of this collection and the whole 6 polishes each matching one side of the dice to be super cool! 

The Daring Game Collection is out now and is available from KIKO Stores and online. Priced at £6.90 *side note, links are back! Woo!*

Red Nails & Mini Leopard Print | I'll be back on Monday!

Hi loves,
I hope you're all well?
I've been terrible at posting and only once this week, I was actually real clever with the nail file Monday evening just after finishing my Vape mani .... and I managed to slice under my nail with a fresh file - it real hurt and nail polish remover is not my friend ATM. I'm now stuck resting it. On top it's hubs birthday Saturday so been busy with that buttttt I will be back to posting on Monday!! :)

Today I have a mani I was meant to post up Monday gone, no idea what happened to that! This was just a simple quick thrown together mani, I really fancied wearing red which never happens! 



I went with 2 coats of Barry M Blood Orange, using a cotton bud and some polish remover I rubbed some of the polish away. On top of that I added some little print - which is actually pretty big compared with my usual lol. I finished with a touch of gold paint. 


I don't love these as much as I did in my head but eh, something different I guess. 

I hope you all have a great weekend! I'll be back on Monday as stated above but I can be contacted via social media pages (IG and FB) along with my email of course :) 

I'm off to rest this meany cut, I should invest in a glass file or something I think! Lol ;)
