BeYu ~ 993 Berry Illusion



BeYu ~ 993 Berry Illusion
Berry coloured scattered holographic

I don’t wear BeYu polishes very often. It’s not because I don’t like their polishes, it’s because I only buy them when I am on vacation in Germany :D They do make good polishes, so I always check out the racks of polish when I can.

Berry Illusion was also bought in Germany, not by me, but by a friend of mine, who offered to get me some pretties while she was there.

The formula is great, no problems to report at all. The coverage is amazing; one coat was all it took. The drying time is pretty average.

I had no sun, so here’s one coat and no topcoat taken with flash:


Lovely, yes?


Here’s what it looks like in the shadows. It’s dusty, but still a nice colour.


I made a tape mani out of it. I cut out triangles of tape and placed randomly on my nails, and then I painted a layer of Arcane Lacquer “Colour of Panic” on the unmasked nail. I sealed the whole deal up with a layer of topcoat, and here’s the final result:


I really like these two lacquers together!


What about you, girls? Do you like this? Do you ever mix holos with glitters and other finishes?


Number of coats: 1
Drying time: Average
Finish: Scattered holo
Overall impression: I love the holo effect, but I do think the polish is a little bit dusty when it’s out of the sun. I forgive it though!
Buy again: Yes

  2. One coaters are so nice :)
    I think it's pretty, but also a bit too safe, but with the nail art I really like the combo!

  3. Pretty, but it would have been amazing if the colour had been more saturated.

    1. Yes! It's apparently hard to get everything in one polish :D

  8. Nice mani! The color of the holo polish reminds me of my school uniform we used to have in my school :D
