Holographic love - BYS Diamond Glitter Crystal

Ever since seeing swatches of holographic polish online I have had a massive massive MASSIVE lemming for holographic polish.....but the only holographic polish I have been able to find in Australia cost $20 but then today I found a much cheaper alternative :) yay!!!!!!! So what is this amazing polish? It is called 'Diamond Glitter: Crystral" by BYS and costs only $4. You can buy BYS from places such as K-Mart, Gloss Costmetics and Ice Accessories.

'Crystal' is a glitter polish in a clear base. It contains silver holographic glitters and (I think) some multi-coloured glitters, all of the same size. This is quite a dense glitter which is impressive (don't need to layer it over anything) and it dries quickly. Formula is satisfactory, a little thick but this means you can get it opaque within 4 coats so I'm happy :)

I also brought an awesome metallic silver polish from BYS which I layered underneath 'crystal' on my right hand. But on my right hand I just used four thick coats of 'crystal' and this is actually the better option out of the two because the polish dries very quickly and it looks better...

  1. Such a beautiful polish! I love BYS, but we're only able to buy it in online stores here (and I spend much more money in drugstores XD ).
