When I moved to New York one of the first things I wanted to do was to get a manicure and pedicure here. Why? Because there is this myth about New York perfect manicures and pedicures, fashionable nail polish and the fact that you can get it almost everuwhere at anytime. OPI and Essie here are the top nail polishes and they offer different collections inspired by the colors of the season.

Also in Milan you can get great manicure treatments and there is a great nail polish that you cannot find here in New York – yet. KIKO Milano is a Milan cosmetic brand that is very popular in Italy. It offers from makeup to skincare, from face and body treatments to nail polish. High quality at very affordable prices. For example, a nail polish is €2.5 or lipsticks €3, pretty affordable!

Their concept quite recalls the MAC one, with an infinite range and shades of colors for each product. But it has a vibe of Italian style. And it is a nice way to try out new colors or new products without spending a fortune and without give up to quality.

A great Italian brand, highly professional, good quality products and an unbeatable price tag. I recommend you go try this brand. It has everything you would find with the other high end make-up brands such as MAC, Chanel, Dior, YSL, etc..and you can get the same results. It is also a great find to enrich your make-up collection with new colors and limited edition products, such this nail color summer bright color edition.

KIKO Milano is available for online in the following countries - Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Portugal & UK at


  1. have you ever tried uslu airlines for nail polish? they have great bright colors.

    1. thank you for the suggestion! I will try this out!

  2. Thanks for the tip about KIKO Milano! My mother-in-law once offered me an eye shadow from this brand but I was not sure what to think about it...
    How about posting the results of your mani-pedi?

  3. Hi! I believe the quality is good, it has been on the Italian market for a lot of years. I remember using the eyeshadows when I was 18 - you do the math! At the beginning it was just in very upscale boutiques and shopping centers in Milan, now it is a few years that they have changed a bit the market, keeping good quality products but lowering a bit the prices. The brand it's like an Italian version of Sephora.
