Eyeko Review- 14 Colors!


I've always wanted to try these polishes, so when I was contacted by Eyeko I was super excited! In this post, I present to you fourteen...yes, 14 of the Eyeko polishes, which is nearly the entire collection that is available right now, with the exception of the new Pastel for Nice Nails and Military Polish for Brave Nails (which I'm dying to try- I love those murky greens).





Eyeko Vintage Polish for Elegant Nails

Mint green.

A lovely mint green polish that I really adore. It totally reminds me of decor from the 50s. It was a bit tough on application, but came out opaque in 3 coats.

Opacity scale (1-5): 1.5

Use for Konad:Doesn't stamp well on either darker or lighter colors.

Finish: Creme, 3 coats to be opaque.






Eyeko Vampira Polish for Gothic Nails

Black base with red glitter.

Just as the name suggests- a SUPER vampy polish. A gorgeous, glossy finish tops off the awesome. Not for the shy. :)

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad:Doesn't stamp well on darker colors, but stamps so-so on lighter colors.

Finish: Glitter, 2 coats to be opaque.






Eyeko Tea Rose Polish for Country Nails

Puce-y Pink creme.

Definitely inspired by country decor, it brings me back home a bit. Applied well, and was opaque in two coats.

Opacity scale (1-5): 3.5

Use for Konad:Stamps so-so on darker colors, but shows up well on lighter colors.

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque.





Eyeko Saucy Polish for Naughty Nails

Fiery red.

Caliente!! This polish is a great va-va-voom red!! Two coats and it was opaque. HOT! It was almost a one coater, but I could still make out a VNL.

Opacity scale (1-5): 4

Use for Konad: Stamps well on lighter colors, but not on darker colors.

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque.






Eyeko Rain Polish for City Nails

Greyed blue with subtle silver shimmer

This is a really chic polish, and I love the subtle hint of silver shimmer. It applied really well, this was 2 coats. Definitely reminiscent of rainy skies, and raindrops on windows. I did find a couple dupes in my collection though, as you can see in my pictures, they even have the same subtle shimmer.

Opacity scale (1-5): 3.5

Use for Konad: Stamps so-so on both lighter and darker colors.

Finish: Shimmer, 2 coats to be opaque.





Eyeko Punk Polish for Neon Nails

Shocking neon pink.

This is the sort of pink I can wrap my head around. Super bright and super fun, 2 coats to be opaque, dries to a satin finish like most neons.

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: Stamps so-so on darker colors, but is very vibrant on lighter colors.

Finish: Neon, 2 coats to be opaque.






One coat of Chi Chi over Punk


Pink glitter suspended in a pale pink translucent base.

Super girlie pink glitter polish that takes several coats if you want it to be opaque, but layers well over colors like Posh.

Opacity scale (1-5): 1.5

Use for Konad: Doesn't stamp well over darker OR lighter colors.

Finish: Glitter, 4+ coats to be opaque.






Eyeko Posh Polish for Ladylike Nails

Mushroom taupe creme.

Very chic, and fits in well with all the neutrals we've been seeing the past few months. I love these types of colors!! Applies well in 2 coats!

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad: Stamps so-so on both lighter and darker colors.

Finish: Creme, 2 coats to be opaque.





Eyeko Petite Polish for French Nails

Super sheer pink.

Developed to be subtle, this color definitely is best for natural looks or french manicures. Very chic if you go for basic, simple, classy manicures.

Opacity scale (1-5): .5

Use for Konad:Not good to stamp with on darker OR lighter colors.

Finish: Sheer, 5+ coats to be opaque.





Eyeko Nude Polish for Perfect Nails

Nude colored polish with a very, very subtle silver shimmer.

This polish is a great natural nail look, aka mannequin hands. I find myself grabbing it to use as skin tone for my nail art.

Opacity scale (1-5): 2

Use for Konad:Doesn't stamp well on darker or lighter colors.

Finish: Shimmer, 4 coats to be opaque.





Eyeko Lilac Polish for Lovely Nails

Pastel lilac creme.

A very pretty polish, especially if you love pastels. Was a tad on the watery side, and took 3 coats to even it out for it to be opaque.

Opacity scale (1-5): 2

Use for Konad:Doesn't stamp well on darker colors, but stamps so-so on lighter colors.

Finish: Creme, 3 coats to be opaque.





Eyeko Indigo Polish for Sultry Nails

Inky indigo shimmer with a hint of teal shimmer.

This is, at first glance, a pretty straightforward indigo polish, but then at second inspection, you see the superfine teal shimmer that makes it a truly lovely color.

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad:Doesn't stamp well on darker colors, but stamps so-so on lighter colors.

Finish: Shimmer, 2 coats to be opaque.







Eyeko Cosmic Polish for Space Nails

Black base with holographic glitter.

Love. This. Polish. Never mind the super shiny finish, but add in holographic glitter and I'm SO in. I think this is one of my favorites of the Eyeko polishes.

Opacity scale (1-5): 3

Use for Konad:Doesn't stamp well on darker colors, but stamps so-so on lighter colors, but you don't really see the glitter.

Finish: Glitter, 2 coats to be opaque.





Eyeko Coral Polish for Resort Nails

Vibrant, reddish coral.

This one is a total must-have for summer- it makes me think of tropical colors and weather. A perfect pedicure color! It was a little on the sheer side, so it took me 3 coats to get it opaque. Makes me want to go scuba-diving, even though I can't swim!

Opacity scale (1-5): 2.5

Use for Konad:Fairly vibrant on lighter colors, but barely visible on darker colors.

Finish: Creme, 3 coats to be opaque.



Overall, I really loved most of these polishes, and use them in my nail art quite a bit! There are a few that aren't really my thing, but I can still appreciate their beauty. The application on most was fantastic (especially Saucy!!), and the colors had just a little something that set them over the edge from being plain to being awesome.

I love the Eyeko naming convention, I remember seeing the bottles a long time ago and loving it, and things haven't changed. If I had a con for this polish line, it would be the bottles though. They're nice, small and cute, but I find myself tipping them over really easily. Perhaps I'm just clumsy though. :-D

If you love any of these polishes, be sure to head on over to Eyeko and pick some up. They have other cosmetics as well, I never knew that- but now I do!! If you purchase anything, be sure to use my ambassador code (E10581) to get a free gift with your purchase!! Also, can I mention how much I love the feature on their site that allows you to view prices in your choice of Euros, Pounds, and US Dollars?
