BYS VooDoo Violet and seven days of purple for Epilepsy.

Good afternoon! :-) How is everyone doing? This week I've decided to wear a different purple polish each day, in honor of epilepsy. Purple day for epilepsy is March 26. This is a very personal cause for me, as I have a seizure disorder. Thankfully mine is very well controlled with meds. but for a lot of people out there, there is nothing that helps. There has been good progress in some areas, but not all. Forty years ago, 30-40% of people with epilepsy had no therapy that would control their seizures. Yet still today, 30-40% of people with epilepsy have no therapy that will control their seizures. There are roughly 50 million people who with epilepsy, and one in three suffer with ongoing seizures. I am VERY thankful that I am one of the people, who has been able to be helped, but sad for those who have not. Hopefully one day, that will change. If you would like to learn more about Purple Day you can visit

I know you are all here to read about and see polish, but since this cause is so close to me, I just had to say a little something about it.

The first of my purple polishes I've worn is BYS VooDoo Violet. I LOVE this polish! I got this in a swap I did with a polish friend in Australia. As far as I know they are only available there. I do believe they will ship to the US though. VooDoo Violet reminds me of China Glaze Atlantis only purple. It's a grape colored purple with medium and small sized silver glitter. The medium size is holographic. :-) Application was wonderful, and I used two coats.

Close up's.

As always, thanks for looking! :-)


  1. I'm from Australia and I haven't seen this shade before - love it!! I'm going on a polish hunt :)

  2. Vita...Well at least someone likes it! ;-) Thanks! I hope you find it! It really is a great color. It's even better in person. :-)

  3. I think there is a UK site that also sells them. It really is a pretty shade!! You really have the same taste in polishes as I do, love watching your pics!

    And good to read that you are ok with good meds!

  4. Miranda..Thank you so much! That's very sweet of you. :-) Yes, I am VERY glad that I'm good with meds. Seizures are really scary. I don't even know how to put it into words. I had know idea there was a UK site that sells BYS. Do you know what it is? I would love to have more colors.

  5. About 15 years ago a girl at my school had a seizure, I was so scared, because I had no idea what was wrong and I thought she was choking or something. Someone explained me it was epilepsy and that´s when I realized how horrible this is.

    This is the BYS site: and they are only 2,50 pounds. And shipping is only 9 for outside Europe, so not bad I guess.

  6. How scary for you. I know what it's like to witness someone having a seizure, and it is pretty scary to see. I didn't even have my first one until I was 22 and I had a similar experience to you. When I was in school one of my closest friends had a seizure, and it terrfied me.

    Thanks for the BYS site. My most wanted color right now is Fern, and they have it! -

  7. I'm glad your disorder is able to be controlled. It must be so scary for you. I've seen seizures twice when I was very young. So horrible for the person. God bless you and take care. Love all that delicious glitter.

  8. Thanks so much for your sweet comments, Lucy. :-) I really appreciate it. Yeah, I've never been so scared in my life, as I have when I've had seizures. They just come out of no where. I don't have any kind of warning. I'm very lucky that my meds. help me.

  9. Another Allison here with seizures. Mine too are controlled with medication. Glad to hear that yours are as well.

    This is a wonderful nail polish color. Thanks for bringing it to us. :D
