Eyeko Purple Polish NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 10 - 2010

If I said I didn’t like this polish very much… I’d be being kind.

I actually don’t usually dislike polishes, I can make most formulas work for me with a bit of adjustment in how I paint… either that or the colour is so lovely that it redeems itself once on my nails.

I’ve fallen out with this Eyeko Purple polish and no amount of chocolates or flowers is gonna smooth over the cracks in our relationship.  So what’s wrong with it?

It drags at the cuticles quite heavily… it’s painfully slow drying… it’s gloopy gloop city… it bubbled on the second coat and after all that, the colour is blah and easily dupable in a better formula.

Actually, this feels like Eyeko polishes of old… if I were you, I’d stick to the pastels.

  1. Essh. Have you tried adding some of the Seche Restore to it? Might help with the gloppyness?

    I love the color but I can see the texture is noting close to what it normally is.

    What a disappointment.
    Also the colour is pretty nice, but i certainly wouldn’t call it ‘electric’ like the label does!

    Aww, that’s disappointing :( The colour is lovely, but… eeeeeeh, gloop city is gross. Have you tried thinning it with polish thinner or remover, perhaps?

    I love that color but have read a few reviews on it and they’re all mentioning it being bubbly and taking ages to dry.
    It’s something I’ve come to expect from Eyeko- never know what to expect.
