Eyeko – Lilac Nail Polish NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 1 - 2010

I love this shade, it’s sweet without being overly sickly.  It’s pastel without being pappy.

3 coats.  The formula is a little uneven and prone to streaking which is a shame because it applies smoothly with a great brush.

Consistency is perfect, neither too thick nor too thin, so I’m not sure where the streaking issues are coming from… a slight lack in pigmentation perhaps?  Oh I’m not sure, all I know is that 3 coats will fix your problems and you’re left with one of the prettiest lilacs I’ve had the pleasure to wear on my nails.  One other thing though, I found drying time to be fairly slow… we’re definitely in speedy dry top coat territory!

I actually got asked by the Boots No7 lady (whilst I was buying No7 polishes no less!) what polish I was wearing.

Eyeko nail polishes are available from the website, priced at £3.50 each.  This is the first shade I’ve tried from the new Eyeko polish range that I was sent, so far so good – more to come!

What do you think?

    I have it and I love it! I bought it with the pink one, and Im so glad I used this before the pink, as using that pink would have been enough to make me hate eyeko if it wasnt for this purple. I think I might have to buy all the other colours :3

    Gorgeous :) We don’t have Eyeko over here, but I will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for a shade like this!

    This is such a lovely color, lilacs are quickly becoming my favorite shades of polish! Your nails are stunning btw :) xo

    Can you please please please do a full tutorial on how you keep your nails looking so great. Everything from filing, cuticle (oh boy do I need help with those!), to application tips. I’ve read a million how tos and my nails come out okay, but never that flawless. There’s always a little something on the edge of my skin and cleaning it off with a qtip never works.

  8. I said I was sick of pastels, I lied. This is BEAUTIFUL.
