Eyeko Has an Eye for Nail Polishes in Spring and Summer 2010

Published in: Nails, Product Reviews

Girl, I’ve got my Eyeko Eye on you — Eyeko as in the London-based beauty brand that’s part manga at heart. Manga? You know, the Japanese comic art form? Eyeko flat-out loves the stuff.



Ironically, I don’t really see manga reflected in their five new spring/summer nail colors, but they still score mega-adorable points from me for their dainty .30 oz. bottles, darling labels and edgy colors.

Eyeko Nail Polishes for Spring and Summer 2010

  • Petite: a creamy, semi-transparent baby pink
  • Tea Rose: a creamy rose
  • Posh: a creamy taupe
  • Coral: a creamy reddish coral
  • Vampira: a semi-matte black with red glitter

You may recall some Eyeko polishes we talked about back in December. These are even better. Where those applied streaky with bubbles, these go on as smooth as silk.

Despite being surprisingly thick, they’re not hard to apply, and two coats produce pigment that’s fully opaque.

I like everything in this batch of colors, but my favorites are Coral (so bright and summery!) and Petite Polish (what a perfect pinky nude).

These are limited edition, but I wouldn’t worry about them disappearing soon, as the company seems to hold on to colors for a while. Five of the six shades I tried back in December are still available online.

Each bottle costs $5.50 USD, but Eyeko’s running a special now where you can buy all five of the new shades for $21. That doesn’t includes shipping across the pond, however, so would-be US customers will have to add another $7.50 for that (and be prepared to wait 21+ days for delivery).

I really like these colors and packaging, and love that Eyeko improved the formula over those other polishes I tried before. If you dig unusual indie brands, these spring/summer shades might be well worth the 21-day wait! Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A

You might like Eyeko’s new spring/summer nail polish shades if…

  • You collect nail polishes and beauty products from indie brands
  • You like polishes with a thick formula
  • You like cute packaging
  • You like feminine, edgy colors

Movie date?

I’m not even half way through re-re-re-watching the series again, and I’ve already whipped myself into a frothy SATC 2 movie frenzy! Bay Area gals, maybe we can meet at a theater somewhere (wearing our best pairs of heels, of course)? If you’re interested, send me an email or a DM on twitter.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

  1. I’m loving tea rose, reminds me of the NYX lipstick of the same name. I don’t think I have any colors like that either, Coral’s pretty hot too, and perfect for summer (blegh not that I can tell it’s summer with this weather)

    Petite and Posh are pretty! I have a thing for barely there polishes so im loving Petite. Posh on the other hand is a bit edgier but still understated. Lovely!
