Nails | KIKO Nail Polish "Beige Chrome"

Before a little venture into their Covent Garden store with the girls from the winter #tbloggers meet up, I was a KIKO virgin. But boy was I missing out.
As soon as I entered the store my eyes were drawn to their many many beautiful nail polishes. For me Sunday night is manicure night and I wanted to gift myself a new little polish (or two) that I could treat my nails to when that time of the week came around again.

Now that we're well and truly into the festive period I wanted to go for something fairly Christmassy, without going for a stereotypical red shade (as I own far too many of them already). I ended up peering at the more nude shades and as soon as I clapped eyes on "Beige Chrome" it was love.
"Beige Chrome" is a stunning sparkling champagne shade that is just perfect if you want a more discreet yet beautiful shade for Christmas. It would also be ever so lovely for New Years Eve, mind you.
Considering the ever so cheap price of this polish (I only had to part with a mere £2.50 to get my hands on it) I wasn't expecting it to be up to much standard-wise. But I was pleasantly surprised, I must admit. It applied ever so smoothly and didn't take that long at all to dry. Although I must note that I did also use my current beauty-obsession the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat just to speed up the drying process of the last coat. Back to this particular polish, it survived completely chip free for about five days, followed by a further two or three once I'd done a few touch-ups here and there. What more could you ask for?
(P.S: It's Henna on my fingers, just in case you were wondering)
I would like to say that I'm really not a fan of the name KIKO have given to this little beauty. A name such as "beige chrome" really doesn't paint this polish in the beautiful light that it deserves. Take notes KIKO bosses.
This polish retails at £3.90, although it is currently on offer for £2.50, and can be found online here.
