General, Nail Polish/Care, Swatches

Glad to be wrong about Eyeko Vampira!

If you’re a hardcore reader of my blog you may recall me moaning about Vampira Polish by Eyeko.  When Eyeko sent it to me it was nestled in a bed of pretty shades that I loved, Vampira looked miserable in contrast. I may have called it dreary and wondered if it would look tacky since it appeared to have red glitter in it.

Wrong!

I have fallen for Vampira, fallen hard I tell ya! The suspected red glitter is infact red reflects. No gaudiness and no tackiness what so ever.

It’s richly pigment and needed only one coat on my nails. As with any dark coloured polish it needs base coat if you want to stay stain free.

It lasted about two days before it started chip a little but to be honest I left it alone – it added to the rock chickness :) I think it would have lasted longer if I had applied a top coat.

What polish are you wearing today?

    Love love love the colour! I’ve been meaning to leave a message in response to your nail trend video so here it is. I have several dark blues that are worth a look at- last season may I add but good for this one nonetheless! Have you seen Boots No 7’s Betty Blue? This is dark navy with a little shimmer, similar to Vampira if the pics do it justice and I’ve also dabbled with Avon polishes and their navy one is also goo- unsure of the name as I’m certain they’ve rebranded it for this season- crafty eh?

    Hey Amy–I am loving You Don’t Know Jacques by O.P.I. right now, it’s that weird beige-y, grey color that suits whatever I am wearing. Have you seen Limited Addiction by Essie? That will be on after my next manicure, it’s a super pretty deep red that I haven’t seen anywhere else.

    Since it’s Autumn over your side of the world now, that looks like a great colour to be getting into. It’s Spring here, so I’m dragging out all my dainty pinks and lilacs and whatnot. :-)

    Today I’m not wearing any – my nails are a bit trashed at the moment so I just have Nail Tek on, and I’ll probably do that for the next week or two.
