NOTD: Kiko Daring Game Poker Nail Lacquer in Irresistible Orchid


Today I have for you an extremely unhelpful NOTD feature that gives you absolutely no idea of the reality of this colour, Irresistible Orchid, from the Kiko Daring Game collection.  You’re welcome.  This very on-trend shade (Pantone 2014 colour of the year is Radiant Orchid) is an almost purple shade of pink that is very pretty and surprisingly unusual, not that you can tell from my pictures which make it look like a muted, fuchsia for some inexplicable reason.


I’ll also point out the chip in the image on my third finger.  I made the silly mistake of playing the guitar before snapping my nails which guarantees chips as you’re basically running a string of steel along the polish, so my nails chipped and here’s the result.  It isn’t my experience of Kiko to product chippy polishes, so I would ignore the chip for the sake of this review.


I was very excited about the colours I received as part of the Kiko Daring Game collection and I still am, as both the blue (Exclusive Blue) and this magenta orchid shade are beauts and very welcome in my nail collection.  Apart from the chipping from the guitar playing, the polish lasted well and didn’t start wearing on the tips before I took it off after 5 days, so I’d say these are long-lasting.  There are six shades of the Poker Nail Lacquer available, all of which are limited edition and can be found here – link – for £6.90 a pop.  Check out my intro post to the Kiko Daring Game Collection here.

    What a pretty shade! Staying power sounds pretty good too.

      It’s such a fab shade; great if you like pink but want something a little different 🙂 xx
