Go B Y S yourself!

Pin It
Hey ladies,

Is it just me or does this post title seem a little OPI-ish? I'm not even sure what 'BYS yourself' is supposed to mean? Hmmmmmm...

Anyways, my BYS polishes started off my addiction (all but 1 of these are 3-4 years old and going strong), so I thought I would share them with you.

Hocus Pocus - 3 coats - lamp

Hocus Pocus is a light greeny blue shimmer - pretty, but sheer.It was released in the Summer Brights Collection.

Ultra Violet - 2 coats - lamp

One of my favs!  Ultra Violet is a very pink based purple shimmer - bright and bold, lives up to its name. Another Summer Bright.

Hissy Fit - 3 coats - lamp

Hissy Fit is the ultimate reddish-orange coral, also from the Summer Brights Collection. My camera made it look lighter and more orange. It's such a fun summer colour - super bright a la OPI Cajun Shrimp or Monsooner Or Later.

Cherry Bomb - 2 coats - overcast

Cherry Bomb is a dark pink with a jelly-like formula but is full coverage like a creme. I love hybrids! It is part of BYS's core collection. In some lights it almost looks red, kinda like this pic, on my monitor anyway.

La Di Da - 4 coats - lamp

La Di Da indeed. I look at it as my cheapy version of Zoya Caitlin.  Another Summer Brights release. I'm not sure what you call this shade; somewhere between periwinkle and lavender with a touch of grey? Very sheer though!!!

Urban Jungle - 2 coats - lamp

Urban Jungle is actually one I picked up recently from the core collection and I adore it! Something about these sagey/dirty greens draws me in!!! It's so pretty but not girly or too military. Perfection.

Blue Bang - 3 coats - lamp

Blue Bang is a sky blue jelly - surprise, surprise yet another Summer Bright. Applies like a dream and when you use a ridge filling base coat (I used Butter London Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat), it's opaque in 2-3 coats :)

I got all the Summer Brights when brightly painted, stubby nails came back in to fashion! That's how they hooked me, I wasn't completely ashamed of my bitten stubs anymore!

Hope your Fridays are/were a great gateway to the weekend!!



  1. Orgeous colors. They look fantastic. And I am curious what BYS means.

    1. I think it actually stands for Be YourSelf

  2. I like that urban jungle and blue bang-very pretty!
