|L to R: Down the Rabbit Hole, Through the Looking Glass|
Through the Looking Glass has a clear base filled with blue and yellow micro glitter. This one's apparently a close dupe to OPI's Absolutely Alice. I think the difference was that Through the Looking Glass had less yellow glitter, which is a shame because it would be perfect with a bit more yellow glitter! For some reason while I was swatching this, I was determined to get it opaque. 5 coats later it wasn't anywhere near opaque, but I didn't want to take pics of my stained nails. I noticed China Glaze Blue Iguana is a similar blue to the glitter in here, so I did one coat over the glitter, then another coat of TTLG. The result? Amazing! The blue is a perfect match and you need only one coat as a base. It actually makes it just look like it's opaque from the blue glitter, not like it has a jelly base. So I was pleased. I suggest doing one coat Blue Iguana, than 2-3 coats TTLG. :)
Overall, these two are definite winners! It makes me kind of wish I got the other one in this collection as well. The only downside is these stink! It's not the normal nail polish smell either...for some reason it makes me think of burnt rubber. It's highly unpleasant. I checked the ingredients and it says it "may contain polyethylene and terephthalate." I'm not sure what that means. I feel like it should be either it has it or it doesn't. This seems to be true of all the other BYS polishes I own, but none of the others had this smell. So not sure what that is. For the most part, it isn't too bad once it's on your nail.
You can buy BYS polishes at Fashion Addict, and I believe they ship internationally as well. I've never ordered from them, so I'm not sure. Let me know in the comments if I'm wrong, or if there is a better option!
And here are some more pics. :)
