Another nail polish swatching adventure today! If you read nail polish blogs you’ve probably seen the new Eyeko polishes everywhere. I figured this was as good a time as any to review and show you all of the Eyeko polishes in my collection.

Mostly I just wanted a little down time and swatching polishes is nice and relaxing!

Brand: Eyeko

From: Their website

Colour Name: Chi Chi

Description: Pink glitter in a milky pink base.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: Quite an interesting pink the milky base is very sheer but after 3 coats it’s nearly opaque from the weight of the glitter. I think this is probably my favorite of the bunch.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -Layering -Small accents eg. French tips etc

Bad for: -Being Opaque

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Colour Name: Saucy

Description: Red with an orangey base.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: Fairly standard bright red. Pretty, shiny and opaque in 1 coat.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -Bright fun summery manicures -Good red for vintage-ish mani’s too -Very opaque so possibly good for Konading

Bad for: -Anything you don’t want to be completely in your face with colour

Excuse the stripe in the photo below, I managed to get a hair on it while drying >_<

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Colour Name: Punk

Description: Neon pink.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: This was an odd one for me, I’m not sure if it was just the bottle I got but it’s a slightly different colour than I was expecting. Very very matte, no shine to it at all.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -Insanely bright mani’s -Probably good for Konad as it’s very opaque

Bad for: -Not burning your eyes out with it’s insane brightness -Being subtle

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Colour Name: Rain

Description: Light opaque blue/grey.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: Actually a really interesting colour. Very odd combination between blue and grey, I think the name pretty accurately describes it!

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -Nail art, good consistency to use with a small brush -Rain clouds etc… anything gloomy -Work safe designs

Bad for: -Cheery bright designs

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Colour Name: Lilac

Description: Pretty much what the name says… Lilac.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: I really like the packaging on this one! The polish itself is a nice glossy flattering colour suitable for crazy nail art but also more subdued work friendly things.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -Work friendly mani’s -Macaron nail art etc

Bad for: -Anything with a big oomf. -Probably not good with konad as the first coat is a little weak.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Colour Name:

Nude

Description: Tan opaque polish.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: Meh, there’s nothing actually wrong with the polish, it applies well and dries glossy… but I just don’t like it because I find tan so boring.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -Work safe stuff I suppose -Leopard print…

Bad for: -Exciting-ness…

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Colour Name: Purple

Description: Nice matte reddish purple.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: I have a soft spot for matte purples, I don’t know why but I just love them. This one is no different, it is quite an interesting one because it layers really well for 3 distinct colours.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -Versatility -Using as a matte base and adding glitter

Bad for: -Can’t think of anything.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Colour Name: Coral

Description: Bright red polish, light pinky tones.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: This is a very similar colour to the Saucy polish from earlier but this one is lighter and more… red. In the bottle it looks more orangy but when applied I thought it was on the pinker side.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -More bright manicures. -Again probably good for Konading as it’s very opaque

Bad for: -Non-bright designs (duh)

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Colour Name: Vintage

Description: Mint green, shiny and opaque.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: Another nice shiny opaque colour. This one reminds me of the green/pink striped colours in an old fashioned malt shop. Or maybe an old fashioned dentist.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -Nail art like leaves etc, very opaque and good consistency.

Bad for: -Using on it’s own, I think a whole polish design in this shade might be a bit odd because it’s kind of a washed out colour.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Colour Name: Tea Rose

Description: Dark pink glossy polish.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: This one dries a lot more darkly than in the bottle. Very nice colour and not a shade I’ve seen very often.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -Work safe manicures -Natural but interesting designs

Bad for: -Out there/unnatural designs.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Colour Name: Posh

Description: Medium brown for “ladylike” nails.

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Thoughts: Again there wasn’t anything actually wrong with this polish but I just am not a fan of browns like this… they look so boring to me! Also I have no idea how this colour is for posh nails but that’s just me XD

Eyeko Nail Polish Swatches

Good for: -Ummmm… More leopard print?

Bad for: -Cutesy sweet designs.

I can’t find the photo of the 3 layered swatch I took so you will have to use your imagination. Pretty much it was opaque in 1 coat.

Overall I quite like the quality of Eyeko polishes, though considering the size of the bottle I think they are quite expensive. Some of the colours they come product are quite original. Very nice.
