Kiko Nail Lacquer in #389 is a robin egg blue color, a couple of shades lighter than the famous Tiffany blue: this also makes the #389 nail polish from Kiko almost a perfect dupe for Dior Vernis in 401 Saint-Tropez. #389 is slightly greener.

While the color is fantastic, application is not up to par. The nail polish is kind of streaky, but sheer. To get the coverage you see in the pictures below I had to layer 3 coats of nail polish. After two coats it was acceptable, but three coats made it completely opaque.
With no base or top coat I get about 1 full day of wear without chipping. Lasting power is a little bt longer with a base and a top coat. Please take notice that I work at a computer all day long so my nails are subject to a lot of wear.
The value for money is excellent, as each nail polish is about 2.50€.
Overall I like the shade and I am willing to work up to three coats of polish to get full coverage, since I got it for free!
