BYS - Phantom


BYS - Phantom
3 coats

Phantom is a magenta jelly polish with pink and blue shimmer and square silver glitter. This had a really nice formula. It applied smoothly. Most of the other BYS polishes I've tried have been thick so I was a little surprised. 
I actually picked this up by accident. It was in on of those plastic boxes for the Wonderland collection and I didn't realise I had the wrong one until I got home. I didn't like how this on looked in the bottle and it sat in my untried pile for ages. When I swatched it I realised I liked it on the nail much more than in the bottle. I wasn't planning on wearing it as a full mani but that's what ended up happening.

Have you been pleasantly surprised by an ugly bottle of polish?

    Misa Teddy Bear, I bought it because of the name and knew that it wasn't my color - but then I tried it, at it actually was a nude (frosty/metallic) that looked good on me!
