Reptilian Nails - Nail Pop Kimono

Hello all

I made a trip to Westfields Stratford on Thursday for some Christmas shopping. While I was there I popped into Superdrugs where my intention was to pick up Barry M's new Lilac Foil Effects polish. I came across the new Look Beauty stand containing Nail Pop polish, a make-up range created by Look Magazine. One shade in the Nail Pop collection stood out by miles, Kimono as it looked kinda similar to Channel Peridot. I'm supposed to be on really limited Nail polish funds at the mo, but I had some money on my Superdrugs card which covered the cost. Yay! I thought I had a Channel dupe on my hands. How wrong was I....









Channel Peridot is painted on my middle finger with 2 coats. Kimono applied to the rest with also 2 coats. I hate to say it...Peridot pales in comparison! Did I actually just say that? I love Peridot, I lusted after it for months, but Kimono is well, WOW. It's a darker and more reptilian looking duochrome so if your an individual who prefers a subtle polish then maybe this isn't for you. Kimono shifts from dark green/light green/gold/brown/red. Application was perfect.

I also picked a couple of LA Colors from beauty base for 99p and bought the new Barry M Lilac foil effects (swatches soon) I did make a trip to Kiko but I had to tear myself away without making a purchase :-(

Price £5.00 and available from selected Superdrugs stores.

  4. OMG I want this! Last two times I've been able to have a look at the Look Beauty stand it's been a complete mess with hardly any stock grrrr. This is definitely on my wish-list xx

  5. I don't think this would suit me but I really like it on you and I also think it looks nicer than Peridot!
    I'm looking forward to seeing your purple foil swatches :-)

  7. Gorgeous :) How does it compare to W7 metallic saturn and the green from Beetlejuice, do you know? I'm desperate for a similar colour!
    I picked up the lilac and gold Barry M foils today, but no sign of the croc effects crackle...will have to keep looking!

  8. @Helly haven't got any beetlejuices yet, I was a bit slow on the mark and missed the box set. It's a very metallic looking duochrome like Chanel although not super shiney. Slight matte/frost finish but really good pigment, bright and really pops. Has much more colour shift than W7 Saturn as that looks metallic green with a slight hint of gold

  14. Glad you like this one - I was amazed by this one too - great to see it next to Peridot (which I would never buy due to price), as I now know I don't even want Peridot - Kimono is even better!
    Nice swatches.

  17. I've just "googled" Kimono because I bought it yesterday on a whim but haven't yet tried it out. Having seen this, I'm glad I got it (and am now going to follow your blog!)
