The Great Aussie Polish Challenge Day 5: BYS

BYS is a cheap Australian cosmetics brand - they do a bit of everything, including polishes and eyeshadows. One of their coolest ranges is the Colour Change collection, which is full of polishes which change colour in different temperatures. I've found that winter is a great time for wearing these - I'm not sure you'd get the cool shade at all during summer! I've shown you the Blue version before, now here's the Green:




I took these right after getting out of bed, so you can see the cold creeping across my nails! First off, it needs 5 coats to hide the nail line, which is annoying. Also, the pale "warm" colour looks weird on my skin, although I love the murky green "cool" colour. But the sheerness means that maybe I'll be able to do colour changing glitter gradients in the future :)

Have you tried these before? Would you want to?

  1. These are so cool! :D love it! I definitely need to check these out! :) Most BYS polishes I've owned are terrible and take FOREVER to dry, or just never completely dry. :/ But they do have some pretty colours! I like that they try a lot of new things, even if they don't always get it right, for example their crackle polishes. :P

    1. Well, this one did take forever because of the 5 coats... but the Blue only takes 3 coats and dried quickly. The thing that bugs me most about them is that when the lid is twisted tight it isn't square with the bottle!

  4. i like the idea of these polishes but the ones i have seen really do not have the best colour combos and your are so right..unless you have just washed your hands in cold water you really do not get a good effect. but green and gold very ozzie!

    1. Yeah, I'm not a pink fan and something like 3/7 are pink and purple. I've been getting really nice gradients all winter, I'll try it out again in summer and see what happens I guess...

      One of the academics bumped into me at the lift when I wore this and asked me whether I did it for the Olympics :)
