BYS - Blue Buzz

Today I'm swatching another polish I received from Hannah at Polly Polish. It's Blue Buzz by BYS. I don't know much about the brand except that it's Australian, but it sure is a pretty polish! Blue Buzz is a shimmery dark blue with silver glitter. 

It's very pretty! The base color is pigmented nicely, but doesn't cover up the glitter pieces, which leads to a bit of a jelly sandwich effect. 

Application was ok, the color was a bit hard to control and streaky on the fist coat, but became more even on the second. I used three thinnish coats, which covered the nail completely. It dries to a super glossy finish, and the silver glitter makes it only slightly gritty. It was really hard to take pics of Blue Buzz - it was so glossy, I couldn't get a shot without any reflection.

Here is Blue Buzz, three coats over one coat of Orly Bonder, no top coat:
