Eyeko Pastel Polish NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 7 - 2011

I’m generally quite sold on Eyeko polishes… and for the money, since the reformulation last year they’ve been a good bet.  I’m particularly a fan of  their pastels which can often be hit or miss from all brands thanks to streakiness, thickness of formula to overcompensate or just downright chalkiness.

Eyeko Pastel polish is a pale blue that isn’t chalky!  It’s almost creamy infact…

Not only that but the formula is easily spreadable.  The only area this polish fails a little for me is patchiness.  Whilst not horrific, you can see that after two thick coats… it could do with a third.  There is uneveness and a bit of streakiness going on here.

The pale blue has a gorgeous vivid flash of metallic blue pearl which stops it from looking flat.  If you’re willing to go with three coats on this shade, it’s a total winner in my book.

Eyeko Pastel Polish is available to buy online priced at £3.50  from PowderRooms or £4 direct from Eyeko.

    Ooh this is such a pretty shade! I keep meaning to try Eyeko polishes but never get round to it, think I need to even more now :) xx

    I always struggle with the formula but I dearly love this shade! I will buy myself at least 2 back ups for this summer! I also believe this to be an excelent dupe for Chanel Riva.

    I like Eyeko polishes, I don’t have this colour though. It’s very pretty, definately ‘nice nails’! :)

    Mmm…easter egg pastel shades…

    Is it wrong/worrying I’ve come to associate makeup with all other things good in life, like yummy easter eggs?

    Gorgeous colour!
