Earlier this week, I mentioned there are Facebook groups where you can find custom polishes made specifically for the members of the group. Indie nail polish brands tend to have fan groups and there are often gorgeous polishes lurking in them and all you need to do is become a member.  For Octopus Party Nail Lacquer, the group is known as The Octosquad and its admin is Nichole over at Bedlam Beauty (check out her blog – you won’t be disappointed).  Crypsis was born in that group.

Get ready for picture overload.

Crypsis Bottle

I don’t even know how to describe Crypsis. It’s purple but purple isn’t descriptive enough.  It’s holo, but holo isn’t descriptive enough. There’s a slight duochrome aspect to it.  All I know is that it’s stunning.

It’s in the sun that Crypsis becomes a polish in a class of its own.  Oh, the holo.

The formula is, well, an OPNL.  This brand is known for it’s buttery application and flawless formula and Crypsis is the same.  While Crypsis isn’t available right now, if you join the group, you never know when more will pop up.

OPNL can be found on Etsy and there are some available right now.  Go! Run!
