Today’s review and NOTD is about KIKO Milano Nail Lacquer 381 Purple Grey. Lets read on to know my views on it. I have already reviewed another shade from this range KIKO Milano Nail Lacquer 515 Metallic Plain Chocolate here.

KIKO Milano Nail Lacquer 381 Purple Grey Review:


KIKO Milano Nail Lacquer comes in a simple square shaped bottle. The applicator is quite long and thin and perfect for application even on small nails. I loved the packaging.


KIKO Milano Nail Lacquer 381 Purple Grey is a dark Grey with Blue/purple undertones to it which comes predominantly in pictures taken in direct light. Whereas it looks more Grey in indirect light. It looks like dark grey on nails and fades to more Greyish tone.

Drying Time:

KIKO Milano Nail Lacquer 381 takes fair amount of time to fully dry and you have to wait to apply another coat.

Staying power:

I do house chores and use hot water as well, still it survived good 3 days then it starts to fade from tip. It does not chip so survived almost whole week. Here is the picture how it looked on Day 5:

What I like:

  • Gorgeous shade.
  • It looks different in different lighting.
  • Good staying power.
  • Affordable.

What I don’t like:

  • Too much drying time.

KIKO Milano Nail Lacquer 381 Purple Grey Swatches:

Final Verdict: 4/5

KIKO Milano Nail Lacquer 381 Purple Grey is very beautiful shade. Although I am not a fan of KIKO naming conventions as they are sometimes OTT. Nethertheless the shade is gorgeous and looks different in different lighting. The KIKO Milano Nail Lacquer range seems promising. I am going to pick up other shades as well.
