So that's not how we do it today - I'm actually happy with our approach to secondary color (I just need to fix it for the dark theme).
Unless you feel very strongly about this, I'd keep that as is for Blue and Pink

I noticed that as I verified the colors. I bet this is just me confusing myself with my clever names again. I'll figure it out and get that back.

That's the cool overlay page... I like it. You don't? Sure, we can change anything.

So far I think your work has been extremely useful. I often don't know how to implement things, but I'll be happy to try
