Eyeko – Nude Nail Polish NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 3 - 2010

Continuing my swatch series of Eyeko’s new nail polish offerings… this is Eyeko’s Nude Polish:

To my eye, this polish is more peach than nude… but to be fair, a lot of nude shades turn peach on my skintone, lipsticks being the worst culprits!

The formula wasn’t as smooth as the lilac shade, this required 4 coats before the streaking was disguised.  I do love how this and the lilac look and feel like true creme polishes, once applied they’re almost buttery in appearance.

Again, drying time was on the slow side and I wouldn’t want to touch these Eyeko polishes unless I had a quick-dry top coat ready to be put into use.   I’d probably give this shade a 5/10 for application, it was just a bit too streaky for my liking… but once on, it really is a pretty colour for Spring.

Eyeko nail polishes are available from the website, priced at £3.50 each.

    I’m actually loving at the Eyeko nail polish swatches you are doing atm and I didn’t think I would like the colours tbh.

    Like the color a lot, but the amount of work that would have to go into achieving your results is way too much for me… What can I say, I’m lazy 😉 xxx

  5. Yuck. All that effort for a polish that looks like a color my 72 year old Grandmother would wear. Sorry I don’t like it at all. I hate painting 2 coats for 4 is out of the question.

    I did become a fan of your Facebook page. I need to set one up too.

  7. I like that it’s so peachy, stops it from being too mannequin-hands like (which is one trend I’m not a fan of) 😀

  8. That is a really gorgeous colour, love!!!

    I have ordered this and I hope it looks as good on my nails as it does on yours!
    I might skittle it with the lilac and the mint to make it less conservative. Or have a black accent finger. Or a silver tip? Peach doesn’t have to be boring.

    I’m obsessed with trying to find a good dupe of this, (I can’t find anywhere that sells Eyeko here) but nothing is peachy enough! I love how it looks, makes your hands look so girly and creamy coloured.

    Chris (the bf) also finds these kind of colours grandmotherly but I think it’s gorgeous for spring or summer.
