BYS Nail Enamel in Pretty As A Peach Review

Sorry my international readers! I know I've been blogging about Aussie brands so much, but let me just end the line of Aussie post by showing you my Nails of Tues-Day, or NOTD #heh

BYS (Be Yourself) is an Australian-based brand which I've tried in the past, but have never really been impressed with their products. My first product was their eyeliner which was great for achieving the raccoon-eyes look, although it was cheap and pigmented.

And despite how gorgeous, pretty and springy today's polish is... I am still not impressed!

Pretty As A Peach is a beautiful peachy-orange colour which in some lighting, may look a tad pinker. Reminds me of my Sportsgirl's Pout About It Lipstick in Fruity Tingle, actually.

The shade looks super bright on my dark hands, however, I still love how cheery it is!

I'm not happy with the formula though. It's streaky, sheer and applied quite uneven. I actually struggled to work with this one...

Maybe it's the formula, maybe this polish was just a bad one.

Have you tried any polishes by BYS?

I've seen swatches from many beauty bloggers and they look fine!
Maybe this one is just a bad one?

Disclaimer: Product was bought by me.


  1. I loved this stuff when I was a teenager... I may have to venture into gloss for the first time in a long time :)

    Whats in my purse! http://superficialsydney.blogspot.com.au/

  2. I have a couple as everytime I go to the Reject Shop, they have a wall of them by the counter and for $1-2, I keep thinking that the next one I buy would be better; but they never are. Mine are mostly sheer.

    Lately I have been buying Nailpolishes like crazy, and then Ozsale had Essie nailpolishes for $5 each so I bought heaps from there.

    I really want to try BYS foundation even though the packaging is crap, I'm always on the look for a "filler" foundation incase I run out unexpectidly and have nothing to wear for a day or two.


    1. Really?! I think these retai for 4.95 at GLOSS stores! Ahh, doesn't sound too great for you..

      Ozsale was also having China Glaze up for $6-8 too! Nice catch on the Essies!! ^_^

      I have a BYS foundation, but I don't really want to trust it! I'm so afraid that it will make my skin react badly! I hope you'll find a cheap filler foundation!! :)

  3. oh lovely color, perfect for spring ^^ i am not sure if tehy are even selled at us, i never saw them in stores.
    anyway, wish you nice day ^^

  4. hmm that really is a pretty colour, it's something I'd instantly grab but I can see exactly what you mean. You can tell it's streaky.. something I hate the most in nail polish. booo

  5. I'm actually a avid fan of BYS products. As a HSC student, I don't really have to time to work, and therefore I consequently don't have a lot of freedom regarding any purchases. Especially makeup. I usually treat the BYS products as my 'desperate in between', but lately I've found the quality to have vastly improved. I use the creme foundation alongside their loose powder and blush for day to day wear, and my only complaint is the longevity of the product. I apply my makeup products at least twice a day though given I have a habit of touching my face during school hours, so the BYS products are still substantially fair in comparison to other brands.

  6. Gοοd pоst! We wіll be linking to this gгeat articlе оn our sіte.
    Keеρ up the good wrіting.
