Polish of the Week: Sally Hansen Calypso Blue

The Polish of the Week is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Calypso Blue!

This poor polish has been sitting in my "To Try" pile since June. For some reason I thought it would be really sheer and I am NOT interested in a sheer blue. When I put the first coat of this on, it was sheer. I got a little sad. But after the second coat, I could see that it was going in the right direction. I did three coats in all of these pictures and there is a tiny bit of VNL, but not so hideous that I wouldn't wear this polish.

I really like this color. It's a gorgeous ocean-y, water-y blue with some almost duochrome-like shimmer. The shimmer is kind of green/gold at times. My pictures make this polish look a little lighter than it is in person. It's not sky blue at all, it's definitely like water blue. Formula was good, easy to apply and dried relatively fast. The first nail I did got a little chunk of dried polish in it, which is annoying, but the rest of the nails were fine (except for the bubbles, but I was sitting next to an open window, oops!). This is a very pretty summer polish. It's not 100% unique/groundbreaking, but it's very pretty nonetheless.

Sally Hansen polishes are available at a CVS near you.
