Sally Hansen Calypso Blue

Sally Hansen Calypso Blue
The sun is shining in Vancouver after what seems like an unreasonably sun-less springtime. I hope this means that summer is finally here!

Since I've been feeling a bit more lively due to the nice weather, I decided my nails needed to match my more positive attitude. Luckily, I had picked up Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Calypso Blue earlier this week... what better colour for welcoming summer than a shimmery turquoise? Not to mention, a unique shimmery turquoise at that! This polish has some gorgeous light reflects that I couldn't properly capture on my camera but trust me when I say that this shade possesses a definite "wow"-factor.

The benefits of this line are detailed in my first review (here) so I don't think there's any need to go over those again in detail. Calypso Blue applies like a dream and reached opacity in two coats (I added a third for good measure). The polish dried fairly quickly so I didn't bother using my Seche Vite. I have to say, I remain super impressed with the Complete Salon Manicure line and can't wait to try out a few more shades.

You'll also notice that I topped my mani off with a flower nail decal... a little cheesy but I figured it matched my "summer" theme, haha!


  1. Yowza. I love the colour and I think the decal is just adorable. :]

    You are inspiring me to hit up the local shoppers for a ton of these colours!

  3. @Liz OT
    Thank you!! The colour is so vibrant in real life too!

    I wish you were here... we'd be at Shoppers like everyday! There are so many good colours in this line too...

  4. There is a Shoppers across the street from me.. I think I know where I'm going on my day off! Which brand do you think stays on the longest?

  5. @Crystal,
    Definitely try the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line. It's the only drugstore brand nail polish I've been sufficiently impressed with.
