Kiko Sun Show: Delicious Mango, Dainty Passion Fruit and Luxurious Indigo

Hi guys! Today I thought I would share my swatches of those three Kiko Sun Show polishes that I bought from my Italy-Croatia vacation. I believe these are limited edition ones, so I was thinking that I should post these while they maybe still available at least in some Kiko stores.
 
All these were actually really hard to photograph since they are very shimmery ones. Because of the shimmer they do look completely different in different lightings, so I tried to take you some shade and indirect lighting swatches in addition to those regular ones that I normally take in my light box. But of course I didn't have enough light for those shade pictures, so those might be a little bit unfocused, nevertheless, I still wanted to add them here, since the polishes do look completely different in shade than in some other lighting.

First I have Delicious Mango (469) which is a gorgeous orange with golden shimmer. Like all these three, this too has a bit of duochrome effect going on and that comes to play especially in shade and then the polish looks even a bit pink in some angles. This was a bit sheer, so I needed three thick coats for full coverage (no base or top coat). I think all these three are pretty great ones for layering and shimmer gradients and such. I already used this one in this shimmer gradient manicure.

I have taken the first picture of Delicious Mango in my light box under daylight lamps, the second picture has been taken in indirect sunlight and the last two have been taken in shade.

I really like how this looks in shade, but unfortunately it didn't look like this most of the time because there was always too much lighting and then it looked just like a regular shimmery orange. I think this would look more like this in the winter when there isn't so much natural light all the time, but then again, this is quite a summery color, so I don't think I would wear this too much in the winter.


Then the second one is Dainty Passion Fruit (470), which is actually quite weird name for a polish if you ask me... Oh well, this is still my favorite out of these three, I think this looked best in all lightings. Pink with golden shimmer works pretty much always! This had also the best coverage out of these three, though I also did three coats with this one (no base or top coat), but those were quite light coats, so you might be able to do just two thicker coats.

Again here, the first picture has been taken in the lightbox, the second is in indirect sunlight and the last one is in shade.



The last one is Luxurious Indigo (474) and I have also three coats here, no base or top coat. I was certain that this would be my favorite out of these three but I have to say that I was little bit disappointed with this one. It looks truly gorgeous in the bottle with that duochrome effect, but you can't really see that on nail at all. It only shows when you have just a little light. So once again, if you wear this in summertime, this will only look as a regular shimmery blue.

Here I have taken the first two pictures in shade and the last one is in indirect sunlight.
 

Which one do you guys like the best out of these three? Did you happen to get any polishes from this collection?

  3. Before buying them, last Spring, I went to the store with a black wheel and swatched them. I jawdropped. Especially with the first two you've showed here. They're astonishing and completely change their hues! There are some pics on my blog of these multichrome reflections if you're curious. I'd suggest you to give them a go over black :D if you like the effect, of course.
    I got 6, the first two you've shown here immediately when I got to the store to swatch them and the others during a sale. This collection has been a total success in my opinion!

    1. Yeah, I sure they do look nice over black and I think I'm going to try at least that pink one that way. However, I'm not too fond of layering any polishes over black because to me it's always a bit hard to apply they neatly enough that way and I would prefer the polish to look awesome on its own. But I do get what you mean! :)
