Pigmentation & Color:

Rain is an absolute beautiful, dreamy light greyish blue while Saucy is a bright red with some fuschia tones to it. Rain needs at least 2 coats for an opaque finish. As for Saucy, one coat is enough!! :D

Rain:

2 coats

Saucy:

1 coat

If you're wondering how Saucy compares to Coral in terms of color, here're two pictures for your comparison:





As you can see Coral, is more well, coral (more orange), while Saucy has more blue tones to it! :)

Texture & Scent:
The formulation of Rain is a little thick, so I find that it takes longer to dry compared to Saucy, which has an AMAZING texture!! :D

Both polishes have that strong "nail polish scent" to them! :)

Packaging:


These polishes come in a slim bottle with the usual brush cap applicator. The brush applicator is just perfectly sized for a smooth application:



Time Test:
Like my previous review, I did not test these out on my hands long enough to know how long they last because all polishes that i've tried out so far couldn't last through a hairwash! :P

Price & Availability:
These polishes cost £3.50 each and are available online at Eyeko.com! International girls can get your stuff shipped free with purchases above £35! :D


My $0.02:

The kind folks at Eyeko offered me another 2 polishes to try out, so THANK YOU SO MUCH if you're reading this! ;)

I love both polishes - Rain for its beautiful color and Saucy for its beautiful texture (and color as well! lol!)! The slim bottle looks quite cute IMHO, and at that price it's pretty affordable (especially if you qualify for free shipping)! :D

The only thing I'm abit iffy about is the texture for Rain - it's abit thick so it takes longer to dry (and a bit more effort to apply). But since this is such a beautiful color, I can overlook that!! :D :D

These two polishes are part of their newest release (not so new now! lol!), so i don't know how long more will they be available for purchase. If you like what you're seeing, go grab one for yourself already! :D

  5. Thanks for the link love Jen.

    I agree with everything you said. Saucy has a fantastic texture, one of the best I've ever come across in a nail polishes. It just applies so smoothly.

    It's a shame the tetxure of Rain is harder to work with but the color is so beautiful I don't mind too much.
