Tuesday's Talons (Eyeko Coral)

Currently listening to: Cold Case Love by Rihanna

Good morning girls,

How are you today? Did your week start well?

Today's talons are painted with Eyeko Coral Polish, which I believe is making its blog debut today:
This is two coats which gave good coverage although three would be necessary for me to eliminate all visible nail lines.

This polish is by no means fast-drying but if you painted your nails at 6.30pm and went to bed at 10pm, you wouldn't wake up with duvet lines and smudges on your nails. You would, however, have that horrible result if you painted your nails at 7.30pm.

After less than 24 hours, there is some tip wear but nothing too obvious and no large chips.
In real life, this shade is not as orange as it appears in the photos. Depending on the light, it can look like either an orange shade of red or a pink shade of red. It is an eye-catching colour but still work-appropriate in my opinion.

I got this polish almost a year ago for £3.50, which I thought was a lot for such a small bottle (8.5ml). However, after checking on Eyeko's website today, I see the price has gone up to £5.

Are you a fan of Eyeko polishes? Do you think they are good value for money? What are your favourite shades?

Bye for now,


  1. I noticed the increase recently, I think it's not as affordable anymore as it was before. £1.50 seems a huge jump from £3.50!

  2. Yeh! I know they have free postage but I don't think that makes up for it.

  3. You should check out the BeautyUK - Coral Surprise, it is very similar if not a dupe of this colour but there are no issues with dry time less than 10 mins each coat I'd say :) and £1.99 a bottle in Superdrug xx

  4. @Emma, ooh, thanks for the tip!

  5. love the bright colour of this polish but i have little patience for slow drying varnish.
    I tagged you for the Kreativ blogger award on my blog :)

  6. @Sophie, thanks for the award!
    All my polishes seem to dry slowly these days, think I need to invest in a fast drying topcoat


Reading your comments makes my day, leave me one to have your say :-)
