Zoya Caitlin & Kiko Mirror Wisteria

Hi loves! How are you? I'm doing fine, finally feel a bit alive again after being in Poland Sunday through Wednesday, working really hard Thursday and had a very nice family dinner last night, because my grandpa turned 70! Poland was an amazing experience - both Monday and Tuesday we visited the foundation that we chose to do charity for, and at night we went into Wroclaw to see something of the city and eat and relax. I really enjoyed all the little dwarfs around Wroclaw!

Today's manicure is a perfect ton-sur-ton stamping creation. When I visited Kiko 2 weeks ago I rummaged through the Mirror polishes they had left (not all colors were there anymore). I picked this gorgeous lavender/periwinkle shade and fell in love with it. When I was looking for undies to combine it with, I figured Zoya Caitlin would look great. It did!




I needed 3 coats for Zoya Caitlin to be nice and even, and as much as I like Zoya's brush, the formula on this shade is weird. Both runny, patchy, opaque and creamy at the same time. It is just hard to work with for me personally!



The image I used is Bundle Monster 212 and the Kiko Mirror polish worked really well with it! Very opaque, not too quick drying and transferring nicely. Yay!

How do you like this ton-sur-ton stamping? And do you own any of the Kiko Mirror polishes?

  9. Love it! So subtle! I grabbed some mirrors by Kiko during their offer sale and I must say I'm really satisfied with them. They're not as tricky as mirrors usually are, but I got them mainly for stamping purposes and they're perfect for this use <3
