Be-Yu ~ 329


Be-Yu ~ 329
A dark, shimmery purple with a tint of red in it

This polish is very beautiful in real life, but frustratingly hard to capture on photos. It’s a dark, vampy purple with shimmer, and if you look closely you can see there’s some red in it too

The application was quite difficult. If I didn’t work fast enough, it would pull on the polish I had already applied. So I had to be absolutely sure that there was enough polish on the brush before starting to apply. I am so glad that the second coat smoothed out the irregularities.

Two coats, no top coat:



It didn’t look streaky or have bald spots in real life at all.

I decided to stamp on it with my new silver polish from Essence: “Stamp me! Silver”. I chose plate BM203 from Bundlemonster. I’ve got a coat of Seche Vite top coat over it here, and no smudges!



This is the most beautiful silver stamping polish I’ve seen so far. It shows up just perfectly on darker colours too! I definitely need to get myself a backup bottle of this next time I’m on vacation!!
