Layering Fun - L'Oreal Crushed Amethyst & BYS Amethyst Metallic


For those of you who follow me on Intagram, I debuted today's manicure last week and it was a HIT! Here it is!!! I present to you, L'Oreal's Crushed Amethyst!

Now, before all of the crazy flaky maddness of late, years ago (mid 2000's? Right? Wrong?) L'Oreal rocked it with their flaky goodness! I have three to share (the others I will keep under wraps until it's time to share :P) but today we will start with this purple beauty. Crushed Amethyst starts off with a sheer lavender base LOADED with iridescent purple flakies that flash to a bright blue. OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE this combo! This is two coats over BYS Amethyst Metallic up next.

BYS Metallic is yet another great polish sent to me by the ever-so-amazing Lauren. I LOVE metallic line! The formula was a little thin, but not unmanageable. Three coats. <3

Have a great day! :)


  1. This is an amazing combo!! Love the flakies and the BYS ain't bad, probably not that original but still nice!!! xo

  2. I'm so in love with this!!!! It's absolutely stunning!

  3. LOOOOOOOOOVE THIS!!!! Crushed Amethyst is one of my fave vintage polishes ever, love the blue flakies! It looks great over purple, so awesome!

    1. It's seriously amazing! I can't wait to swatch my other two!

    2. I wonder how many there are?! I have Crushed Opal & a red one as well (the name has escaped me)
