Eyeko Vintage Polish – NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 7 - 2010

Some of you eagle eyed ladies spotted my nails in yesterday’s Shu Uemura kit review and asked what I was wearing, well shush!  You’re ruining my next NOTD!

Haha, not really, but here it is:

Eyeko Vintage (£3.50) is a pale green… to my eye it’s not quite pastel (especially after 3 coats as shown).

I had to laugh as I was checking out the Rouge Cocos today, the SA on counter asked if it was one of theirs (we all know what she was referring to right?).  In all honesty, I haven’t got a clue if it looks anything like the Chanel Jade… it’s just a nice green that makes a statement without being too “in your face”.

Again, it was streaky… The Eyeko Lilac is still the best formula polish of the ones I’ve been sent, and like the others… drying time = slow.  Speed dry topcoat = necessity.

I’ve got one more Eyeko to show you, it’s a punky purple which will be a bit of a change after all these more spring-like shades.

Hope you’ve been enjoying my Eyeko mini-series!

    I think you have probably saved the best for last. Can’t wait for the ‘dark’ purple one.

    I like this one :) It reminds me a bit of China Glaze “For Audrey” which I love, though I wonder if this might be a bit lighter.

    Dani, check out Sally Beauty or anywhere you can find China Glaze and take a peek at For Audrey. We may not have access to Eyeko here but that might tide you over :)

  4. The Eyeko website will ship internationally for £3.50 ladies xx

    Yes, I have been enjoying your Eyeko mini-series and have ordered the same Eyeko set you have. Hasn’t arrived yet. Got 3 orders coming from various places. Oo.
    Looking forward to the purple swatch.

  7. Reminds of Mint Chip ice cream. Now I want to go eat some. :-)

    I still like Lilac best :) Any idea if they’ll be available in Superdrug? And… I must say… your nails are GORGEOUS. I am NOT a fan of long nails and yours are long by my standards, but by God, you can pull it off. They’re the perfect shape.

    I love this pale green trend at the moment, absolutely gorgeous.

    This color is fabulous! I love greens and teals when it comes to makeup and polish. This is such a soft yet vibrant color :) Love it!

    Such a pretty color! And perfect for Spring! You have awesome nails!

    I’m putting in my request once again for a nail tutorial! Even in the close up your cuticles look great. Mine always look raggy not matter what I try!

  14. Ugh I love mint greens <3

    I love green polishes and this one is stunning!

  16. I’m terribly tempted by these Eyeko polishes, especially since they ship worldwide and it’s actually reasonable!
