NOTD: Eyeko Lilac Polish + bonus glitter layering

Happy Friday, lovelies!

Today I have for you Eyeko Lilac Polish which I've had for a while but for some reason haven't worn before. It's a shame really, because it's a very pretty polish!

I'll apologize in advance; these pictures aren't that great, because the light was mostly gone when I took them. Sorry.

Lilac Polish is, as the name suggests, a pale purple creme. It is less blue-toned in person than the picture suggests, but to me it's still more lavender than lilac. At any rate, it's a lovely shade that is very flattering.

I used three coats, though I might have stopped at two. However, there was some minor dragging going on and I didn't want any surprise bald spots in my pictures. The brush on this is very long and somewhat floppy, but the bristles are stiff and don't fan out properly, making it hard to get a nice, clean line along the cuticles. This is also what caused the dragging. I would advise to keep your touch light and make sure you've got a good amount of polish on the brush to avoid any of that.

I didn't use any top or base coat for the pictures and can you see how shiny the polish is? It has that squishy, jelly-creme finish that some Essie polishes have. Love love love.

And just for fun I layered some glitter over it.

 For this I used one coat of a pale purple glitter by a brand called Paris Memories. I couldn't find any sort of number or name on the bottle or label. I've also never heard of or come across this brand before. At any rate, it's a clear lavender polish with hex and smaller holo-esque glitter suspended throughout. Here it flashes mostly blue, green, pink and silver, but at some angles it's completely purple.


Do you see all the colours in the bottles. So sparkly. Mmmm.
And the obligatory blurry pic to show off the sparkles some more. <3

Hope you liked this! Have a great Friday night!
