Product Review: Eyeko Pastel Polish

Name: Pastel Polish
Brand: Eyeko
Size: 8.5ml
Price: £3.50

From Eyeko’s website:
Dream of blue skies with this pretty baby blue shade shot with iridescent shimmer. Layer up for an opaque nail look or wear it sheer for a hint of a tint.

What I liked:
- beautiful pastel baby blue color
- good color payoff
- not streaky
- the packaging
- the price

What I didn’t like:
- formula is thick and a bit tricky to apply
- takes a bit longer than other Eyeko polishes to dry

As you know, I’m a fan of Eyeko nail polishes. They have some beautiful colors, are packaged in cute little bottles and they are cheap. The latest shade I had the chance to try is Pastel Polish, for nice nails. Pastel Polish is a pastel baby blue shade with just a hint of shimmer, which makes this ordinary shade look interesting.

Most Eyeko polishes have a wonderful formula that applies very easily but sometimes you stumble onto a shade that’s tricky to work with. Sadly, this was the case with Pastel. Its formula is quite thick so you have to be careful with application and make sure you don’t use too much product (but not too little either) in one stroke otherwise it becomes difficult to apply. Once you figured out the right amount of product to use for each nail, application goes more smoothly though.

Because of the thickness, Pastel takes a bit more time than most Eyeko nail polishes I’ve tried to dry. However, drying time is still very reasonable. As for the color payoff, that’s quite good. One coat is sheer and gives nail just a little hint of color while two provide opaque coverage that lasts about 4 days before starting to chip.

Summary
Eyeko Pastel Polish is a beautiful pastel baby blue shade with a hint of shimmer. It provides opaque coverage in two coats and the formula, while not streaky, is thick and tricky to apply. It lasts four days without chipping but it takes slightly longer than most Eyeko polishes to dry.

Rating: 3.5/5

    • Trisha, I agree. I always mess up my polish when it takes a while to dry. This wasn’t too bad but usually Eyeko polishes dry faster so I was a bit disappointed.

    • Exceptionn’Elle, Eyeko makes some great polishes and the colors are very pretty. If you like reds, I highly recommend Saucy, it has the best texture I’ve ever come across in a nail polish. It applies like a dream. Pastel is trickier to apply but the color is lovely.

    • Xin, pastels aren’t my favourite finish either. This one didn’t scratch easily but application was tricky and it takes a while to dry as the texture is quite thick. Nice shade though.

    • Stavroula, I like pastels but I understand why so people aren’t fond of them. They’re not the easiest shades to pull off.
