It is a deep pink with a hint of blue shimmer to it (although the pictures make it look slightly lighter) which looks great when it catches the light. The nail polish itself is very rich and similar to a gel. In the pictures below, I used two coats without a top coat. You do get a lot of colour using just one coat as it is is quite rich. It also has a really nice glossy finish to it. Although it has a shimmer to it, it is smooth to touch. It's definitely a colour that brightens up your skin tone and your outfit. I've been wearing it for over a week (I re-applied it twice during the week) and I've had a number of comments about it.

I do really like this colour and the richness of the polish. However, it really didn't last. I found it only lasted 2-3 days without chipping. Which is a bit frustrating but then again, I do change my nail polish every 5 days or so. Once I re-applied the nail polish, I used a top coat to see if it would make it last longer, and unfortunately it didn't. This won't stop me from using it as I do like the colour, but I guess it is something to be aware of. Another point to note is that you do need to apply pressure to take the polish off as with any other glitter polish.
Pearly Pink Iguana retails at £4.90 for 11ml. I think this is a reasonable price. You can pick this up online (click here) or if in London, at the KIKO store in Westfields.
Have you tried any nail polishes from KIKO Make Up Milano?
