Eyeko has just released two new LE nail polishes, Saucy (which I’ll review very soon so stay tuned) and Rain, my favourite of the two and the one I’m gonna talk about today. As usual, its packaged in a very pretty bottle that aptly features a drawing of London in the rain. Plus, the small size makes it very easy to store it in my stash.
The shade is a very interesting too and kinda unique. Rain is a beautiful blue with a grey tint and very subtle silver shimmers. It was love at first sight for me and I love how the shade perfectly captures the color of the gloomy, cloudy and rainy sky. And the addition of the shimmer, which looks more of a subtle sheen on the nails, is such a nice touch as it prevents the shade from being boring and flat. On the contrary, it is beautiful and chic.
Now, the formula’s a bit thick and while I still found it easy to apply without streaking, I had to use a bit more product that I normally use so it also took a bit longer to dry compared to other Eyeko polishes. Also, one coat was still on the sheer side, so I needed to apply another one to get complete, opaque coverage.
The staying power didn’t disappoint either. On me, it lasted about 4 days without a top coat before some chips started to appear, but then consider than I’m pretty hard on my nails. This could easily last about a week without chipping if you decide to use a protective top coat on top.

Overall, I’m very impressed by Eyeko Rain Polish. This unique blue shade with a grey tint and some shimmers has a thick texture that applies smoothly and is opaque in only two coats. In addition, it is easy to remove and inexpensive. However, it takes slightly longer to dry than other Eyeko polishes.
