BYS Matte Grey

 Hey guys! How was your weekend? It seems like time is flying by for me! We only have about a month left here in Japan. Anyways, when I stopped by the Japanese drug store last week I noticed they got BYS polishes in recently and I couldn't resist trying one of the mattes. I've been on the look out for mattes here but you don't see them much.
 Matte Grey is a basic dark grey, I wouldn't say it is very matte but it isn't as glossy as regular polishes. It's more of a satin finish. While I don't love this one it is interesting but I do wish it was more matte.
 Picture is two coats. I had no problems with this one. It didn't even smell that bad like the BYS polishes usually seem to. Since it isn't as glossy it does dry pretty quick.  


 How do you like matte polish? Do you have a favorite matte top coat? I've been looking for one and need suggestions.

  1. I've this and I'm not a big fan. It looks like the kinda squeaky rubbery concrete that car park floors are made of sometimes. I've found that BYS mattes have a rubbery finish not unlike the Illamasqua ones. Even the matte top coat has the same effect.

  2. Love grey polish and matte polish! I swear by Boots 17 Nail Extras, so cheap but works brilliantly. :-)

    1. Thanks! I'm not a huge fan of the semi-matte polishes but it's still nice. At first I didn't like the new layout but it's growing on me.
