BYS ~ Voodoo Violet


BYS ~ Voodoo Violet  
Dark purple packed with multisized purple, pink and holographic glitter


This is my only BYS polish. BYS is an Australian brand, and the letters stand for “Be Your Self”.

It’s not a secret that purple is my favourite colour nail polish, and that I’m a huge glitter fan. This polish satisfies both needs, really, being a beautiful purple packed with glitter. It even says “Glitterazzi” on the lid! That sounds promising in my little ears!

The application was easy. The formula was a bit on the thick side, which means I could apply it effortless and without pulling on the already applied polish. Two easy and fast drying layers and I was satisfied with it.

I finished it off with a generous coat of Poshé top coat. Not that the polish itself dried out particularly gritty, but I used it to protect the mani and add more shine to it.

Here’s a pic taken in the sun:


And here’s one taken in my light box:
