BYS - metallic angel

I've said it once and I'll say it again. I love metallic polishes.  This beautiful polish is BYS Metallic angel. This polish is made up of tiny irregular shaped metallic flecks that are silver and tan in colour.  The light reflection on this looks pink, but it's really more of a tan/neutral coloured metallic.

It was great to apply, very smooth and even and no streaks.  In sunlight this polish is spectacular.

Indoors this polish is much more subtle and you can really see the different coloured metallic particles.  It was a little sheer, this was three coats, however it dried very fast so many coats is not a problem.  Indoors you can still see a slight visible nail line, but in sunlight you can't see anything because of the blinding reflection.

This was my first BYS polish - which is another Australian polish brand.  These retail for $4, which is very reasonable for polish here in Australia (where a bottle of OPI costs $20). Very happy with this polish, I actually wore it for about three days! I can see it staying in my regular rotation.


  1. Three days of wearing one polish?! Wow, it must be good! It looks super nice here, kind of like OPI Cozu-melted in the Sun?

  2. I have never had a metallic polish but I am starting to think I should.

  3. I just looked at some OPI Cozu-melted in the Sun swatches, yes it does look a similar colour - probably not a dupe, but bloody good for AUS$4.

  4. I have this and it's one of my absolute favourites!

  5. That looks great, in the sunlight pic it reminds me of a foil.
