I Heart Carpe Noctem Cosmetics - Valentine's Day Duo

**Press Sample** These polishes were provided to me for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Hello, all!

I have a treat for you! Carpe Noctem Cosmetics is doing a Valentine's Day Duo! Woowooooooo! Calypso is a gorgeous light purple/orchid holo with pink shimmer. It's very delicate, making it extra beautiful! There's also Venus in Love, a super cute lavender crelly with loads of glitter ranging from red hearts to little black hexes to holo circles and white circles. It also has a dusting of holo. Dead! Emily at Carpe Noctem makes the best jellies because they're super shiny and super squishy. Add some V-day glitter to that and I'm so on board.

Outdoor Full Sunlight

I'll leave this here...



Venus in Love

Outdoor Full Sun (alone)




Outdoor Full Sun (over Calypso)




I totally love both of these - I'm really lovin' them layered. The creaminess of the crelly gives Calypso a more milky look and the glitters make it adorable for Valentine's Day. The holo dusting in Venus in Love still lets the rainbow through while over Calypso (also her radiant orchid release) or even on its own. Application on both polishes was great. Calypso is shown with two coats no top coat in all pictures. Venus in Love is one coat over Calypso or 3 thick coats on its own - no top coat there either! I'm a purple freak so anything remotely purple is right up my ally. 

They're releasing tonight! on Etsy so keep an eye on Carpe Noctem's Facebook for release news. And follow her on Instagram!

Until next time...
