After another soft pastel creme, back to dark and sparkly. I got this Kiko on my one-day trip to Italy. I was there probably just a few days before their new Spring collection arrived. They have some beautiful pastels available now. 255 is a red-based dark purple filled with small holographic glitter particles that looks 10x better in the sun but, sadly, it was early Spring when I got it and the only option was photographing under a lamp. The holographic particles are visible in the last blurry pic. There are two coats here and since it dries semi-matte, I added two coats of top coat. The formula is just fine, the few bubbles are my fault - I slapped the second coat immediately after the first. It's a beautiful polish but it left me indifferent somehow... there are so many gorgeous purples out there, looks like just a little holo glitter isn't enough for me anymore. :D The price on Kiko's site is 2.5€ but I'm pretty sure I paid 3.90€ :-/. The bottle holds 11 ml/0,37 oz.
