Eyeko Nail Polish Review and Swatches

Nail girls can get on board with this post.

Did I mention I’m so NOT a nail girl? But I broke out some falsies and painted ’em up with Eyeko Nail Polish for you guys, I thought you might enjoy a break from my normal cosmetic babblings.

Check ’em after the jump!

Eyeko’s cute packaging has always appealed to the Muse. With a manga adorned lot of makeup and some cute polishes, Eyeko should appeal to those of you who enjoy the kawaii when it comes to your makeup.

I know I can personally get on board with anything cute.

Way back before the Internet discovered Eyeko the Muse had blogged a bit about it and it was quite soon after started popping up everywhere. An English brand in roots, it still managed to make a special guest starring appearance at Sephora a few year’s ago and a follow up spot on Cherry Culture and and on one of my favorite indie shops, Sugar Pine Beauty.

It’s always been one of those contracting brands that is well known but unheard of.

Recently, they introduce a new line of polish to their line up, here’s the deets on ’em!

At $5 per a bottle or 4 for $15 you prob won’t break the bank by indulging in a few of these cute Eyeko Nail Polishes. They come in a range of fresh funky shades, soft pastels, and even a few nude shades for the more reserved among us.

According to Eyeko their polish features a nail friendly formula that is Toluene, Formaldehyde, DBP and Camphor free. No color fade thanks to UV absorbers and an amazing glossy, chip resistant finish which strengthens nails too.

I tried out four shades which were as follows Eyeko Nude Polish (pinky beige shade for a perfect french manicure), Eyeko Purple Polish (rich purple), Eyeko Lilac Polish (a pale, sugary shade of lilac! Quite lovely for Spring), and Eyeko Vintage Polish (jade green at it’s best. Perfect dupe for MAC Peppermint Patti and Chanel Jade).

If you’re wanting something that brings the cute in a range of cute, fun nail polishes, Eyeko Nail Polish should appeal.

Available now from Eyeko.

Whatcha think?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    Yay! A nail post! I’m such a polish whore…I probably don’t have half as many as some people (I have a good 65 though), but I paint them maybe 3 times a week. I get bored easily haha!
    Totally in love with the peachy color. That’s just been my color lately!

    The lilac and the purple are so gorgeous!!!!
    I haven`t tried those nail polishes yet but I have read that Eyeko polishes aren`t good because of their pigmentation…

      hi gabriela sadly not an expert on nail stuff 😀 so can’t say whether pigmentation is good or bad. I did two coats on this if it’s helpful!?
