I think I put this Kiko polish back few times, before finally deciding to buy it.

Kiko Rosa Antico Scuro (no. 317) is one of those colors that walks the fine line between being special or ugly. This cross between mauve and antique rose in the end convinced me that it is still one the pretty and not “something my grandmother would wear” side. :D

I would say that this purplish-pink muted color is one of the safe shades – something I would reach for when I need understated elegant polish, but still add color to the nails.

Formula is thicker, opacity is good. I used 2 layers + top coat. I like the fact that all the creme Kiko polishes I tried so far are also good for konading, but on the other hand they’re not really fast to dry.

I wore Kiko Rosa Antico Scuro nail polish in combination with Golden Rose Graffiti 11. If you watched my p2 Perfect Face Anti-Red Base video, you could see that I layered Graffiti 11 on every second finger. I later added Golden Rose Graffiti 11 to all the “missing” nails. I’ll have to play more with this crackle. It looks really interesting with all that “rusty” color turning into goldish shimmer.

How about you? Would you wear Kiko Rosa Antico Scuro? What kind of occasion would you choose it for?

  1. Ok, nekaj moram priznati. Zadnja manikura je edina krekl manikura, ki jo dejansko vidim (in tudi želim) na svojih nohtih.
    To je ogromen kompliment v prevodu. :D

  2. Oh my but I love that mauve purplish color nail polish. It looks luscious and hopefully wears well. I find when I put polish on I have to be careful or the next thing you know its chipped. :wub:

  3. Meni je dejansko všeč na tvojih fotkah, ga pa ne bi pogosto nosila, je preveč safe za moj okus. Ampak tudi take rabim. S cracklom je super, dobi tak antičen pridih. :wub:

    • Rosa Antico Scuro je res potrebno dozirati po kapljicah. :biggrin:
      Če ima že tako ime, se spodobi da ga nadgradim z antičnim cracklom. :silly:

  4. Jaz pa ravno tako barvo iščem, ker mi izgleda zelo toplo, jesensko in pravljično :wub:
    Sem sicer gledala od Catrice Plum Play With Me (vsaj mislim da sem si prav zapomnila ime) ampak se nekako ne morem odločit, če mogoče imaš tale odtenek bi naredila primerjavo?

    • Tega odtenka sicer nimam, vendar mislim da vem na katerega misliš. Po spominu bi rekla, da je Catrice bolj hladen in bolj vijola.

  5. Jaz pa sem ga takoj vzljubila :wub:
    317, 318 in 346 so takorekoč stalno na mojih nohtih :yes: mislim, da si bom morala omisliti back up :silly:

  6. Hehehe, se strinjam; imam neki podobnega (mal svetlejši je sicer) in sem tudi kar neki časa rabila, da sem ga vzljubila.
    Mi je pa zelo všečen Graffiti nadlak!

  7. Tudi jaz imam ta lak, in še vedno ne vem, ali mi je všeč ali ne, oz. mi je všeč na vseh ostalih nohtkih, samo na mojih ne! :undecided: ko ga uporabljam vedno nanesem 2 plasti, odtenek se tudi meni zdi eleganten, ampak ravno toliko, da ga lahko nosiš za “navaden” dan ali za kakšno priložnost. Vsekakor ga je nujno treba imeti! :wink:

    • Zanimivo – bi si mislila, da tale odtenek pristaja veliki večini.
      Se podpišem – izključno za občasno uporabo. :biggrin:
