New Limited Edition Eyeko Rain Polish

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 11 - 2010

A new limited edition polish release from Eyeko

Rain Polish is a rather delicate smoky blue/grey amalgamation.  It’s instantly clear that a lot of thought has been put into the colour selection by the addition of a subtle amount of shimmer that really lifts the shade and stops it falling into the familiar pale blue trap of looking flat and chalky.

Application was a touch tricky, the formula felt fine…. nicely balanced, but on application it dragged a bit unless I was super quick.  The best way I found to prevent this was by applying thicker coats than I would normally… which then has the knock on effect of taking longer to dry, so I probably wouldn’t wear this without the addition of a quick dry top coat.

It reminds me of Essie’s Sag Harbor from last year’s North Fork collection but with less shimmer.

Do you like it?

Looking on the Eyeko website, I’m only seeing it available as part of a set of 3 (priced at £8.50).  Hopefully they’ll make it available as an invidual shade ‘cos it’s a fairly unique one.

  1. Ah yes, I wish they would sell this individually since I have the other shades in the 3-pack mostly thanks to you!

  2. Jenni says:

    I too have the other colours. I definitely want this one.

    • It’s something quite different from a budget brand. I love how they’re all getting so adventurous! What a golden age for nail polishes we’re currently enjoying! xx

    I really want this colour, it’s so beautiful. But i refuse to buy from the Eyeko website as i had a bad experience with them so i’m really hoping it will come to Asos like their other polishes :(

    They definitely didn’t go out and do just another baby blue shade…this has a subtle uniqueness to it :) Though I think i’d like it with a bit more grey in it. Just a bit more.

  5. Sirvinya says:

    I agree, the colour is very pretty but application is a little annoying.

  6. Sarah says:

    That’s lovely. A grey polish started me off on my nail polish obsession and I can’t get enough of them. Probably a good thing we don’t have eyeko in New Zealand then!

  7. Stephanie says:

    this is a beautiful shade! I wish I could get this brand in the states :/

    Beautiful color!
