There's a heat wave going on and my nails have gone fluro...
The Kiko Ready-To-Go Fluo Patch Nail Lacquer is a specially designed 3 in 1 set of nail strips. Essentially they are a form nail wraps but they're the best ones I've tried so far. What sets them apart from other nail wraps is their unique three coat design. The consist of a layer of base coat, colour coat (here I have the 02 Fluo Orange) and top coat all together in one single nail strip.
Every pack contains two strips of eight nail strips that are already shaped so all you need to do is to find the shape that fits your nail and you're ready to put them on. They're easy to apply, simply peal off, smooth down onto the nail from the centre outwards and file away the excess. They feel really cool when you touch the actual strip as they actually feel like nail polish unlike other nail wraps that I've tried that have felt like sticky plastic. Applying these saves me so much time as they literally take a couple of minutes to apply whereas if I were to have applied a base coat, a couple of colour coats (to get the opaque shade of the Fluro Orange wraps here) and a top coat, I'd be sat for a good ten to fifteen minutes. They are odourless too so they don't have that strong nail polish scent to them which some people find pretty toxic!
They have a gorgeous finish, just like having a glossy professional manicure but at a fraction of the price at only £1 in the sale from the Kiko website. I would most definitely repurchase these as they are PERFECT for summer nails because they're long lasting, glossy and have a bright colour. The Fluo Orange isn't a shade I would usually go for but I am absolutely loving it as its so bright and looks awesome with my tan. One thing that I did notice is that the longer I wore these the colour on the ends started to lighten- perhaps because of the strain on my nails with using my hands a lot, typing and doing house work or with sitting in the sun, I don't know but I'm assuming it isn't supposed to happen. I actually loved the look this gave though because they started to look ombre and dip dyed.
They last about seven days before starting to chip depending on what you're doing. I've got longer out of them before. Removing them is easy too, simply grab a cotton wool pad with some nail polish remover on it and the nail lacquer just slides off. Easy peasy!
