Emily from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics is a damned genius. How many times have I typed that? I bet it is more than once. She makes some amazingly beautiful polishes, and the new version of Calypso is no exception.
In the sun, this shade somehow manages to cool off a bit, which is witchcraft. That slightly gray tinge turns into a delightful smoked out blue and the pink flash sings with the addition of sunlight. The holo is a delicate and tasteful addition and doesn't overpower the unusual color. I feel like this is going to be a popular color around these parts come springtime.
So there ya go! I don't have the original Calypso, but I can't imagine it being better than this. This seems like the pinnacle of purple polishes. And yes, I do love alliterations.
