Heylo Everyone, hope you all had a good weekend. KIKO Milano is one brand here in Europe where you will always find atleast one section with sale items. Last month I have picked up 3 shades from KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer range and here I am with the swatches and review.
Price, Quantity & Buy online:
2 EUR (I got for 1 EUR each) for 7ml.
200/- INR for 7ml in India. Buy online at Nykaa.
Quick-drying nail polish. The special formula is enriched with additives that can fix the color in a few seconds.
The texture has the ideal fluidity for perfect control during application. The components of the formula let the shine of the color come to the fore for an intense shimmering finish.
Available in many surprising colors. Each shade is balanced with maximum precision to optimize the color fastness, coverage and effect of the pigments.

My Experience with KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer:
Packaging is small, light weight and easy to travel with just as brand described : “Modern design for a brand new transparent glass packaging and matt black cap with the KK logo engraved on top. The maxi brush with a large number of hairs facilitates picking up the nail polish and the gradual release on the nail for an even layer without streaks. Thanks to the compact packaging, you can always take Smart Nail Lacquer for a perfect manicure anywhere.”
The brush applicator is dense and small and perfect to apply nail lacquer even on smaller nails.
Texture & Pigmentation:
KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer has metallic, gel like and pearly finish in different shades. There are literally 103 shades in the range though not all are available in India. The texture is not too runny and not too thick which makes it quite opaque in 1 coat. Though 2 coats will give you exact color and opaqueness. The sahdes comes exactly same on nails as they look in bottle.
These nail lacquers are actually fast dry. By the time I am done applying it on both hands, first coat already dries down so it is really easy for a person like me who always end up messing nailpolish application because it is not completely dry :(. So I love these as they actually dry down fast and thus it is easy to layer them up.
Shades & Finish:
I have 3 shades from KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer range : 067 Light Crimson, 089 Metallic Forest Green and 093 Pearly Greyish Green.
1. KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer 067 Light Crimson: It is normal glossy finish and have good pigmentation. This particular one I applied 3 coasts and then I noticed my hair imprint on it next day. 2 coats work fine.
2. KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer 089 Metallic Forest Green: It is very golden green kinda shade which looks more like golden with hint of green. It is gorgeous color with metallic finish, fully opaque in 2 coats and it shines bright in sunlight.
3. KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer 093 Pearly Greyish Green: It has pearly finish which means it is not as shiny as metallic one. The color is dark greyish brown with slight shift and hint of deep green. It i also fully opaque in 2 coats.
Coming to staying power of KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquers, these stay put on my nails good 4 days then starts to fade from top. Minding the fact that I do house chores and cooking, it is a great stayiong power. It definitely survives whole week without looking dreading that I should take it off. Also these do not chip even when I cook or chop vegetables.
1. KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer 067 Light Crimson:
2. KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer 089 Metallic Forest Green:
3. KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer 093 Pearly Greyish Green:
Final Verdict: 4.8/5
KIKO Milano Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquers are definitely good when it comes to color payoff, finish, staying power and fast drying time. They have huge shade and finish options. The only thing I feel is that they are slightly over-priced but if you get these on sale then they are definitely steal. I am definitely going to pick more shads while they are still on sale 🙂
