I got the chance to try out my first BYS polish the other day, thanks to Lisa from NEVER ENDING OBSESSION - thank you so much again! :D
Rather than use this pretty polish by itself, I decided to start off with another color, since I thought that would give it a really cool and different look. Being the purple lover that I am (go Cats!!) I started with two coats of OPI Funky Donkey. Then I applied a coat of the gorgeous BYS Down The Rabbit Hole. It is a black jelly base with tons of holographic glitter. This stuff was seriously shiny - I could not get a picture that captured the true holo glittery bling of this polish, but it was amazing! In these sunlight pictures the purple shows through well, although in other lighting I found that it was an "almost black" polish, with a touch of purple showing through. I think the purple added a lot of interesting depth to this manicure.
Slightly blurry shot to try to show more of the holo effect!
Th BYS polish applied very nicely and had a really decent drying time. The one downside - it totally reeked. I know the smell from somewhere, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it... whatever it was, it was awful. Luckily it was pretty enough that I didn't really mind so much. You will be seeing this baby again! In the shade, the glitter is just a nice silver:
Outdoors, shade, no flash
However I found that I could almost always find some holo peeking through, even in very shady conditions! This also wore very well - after topping with two coats of Essie Quick Dry Topcoat, I wore it for three days with virtually no tipwear and no chips. Overall a very nice polish, and a very fun manicure!
