DIY Dry Brush Manicure | Featuring Vapid Lacquers

Are we all ok with me being a Vapid Lacquer fangirl now? Yes? Yes. Ok, good. I still haven't gotten over those shades from Summer...so I decided to break a few back out. And totally not because I hadn't put them away properly yet. Nope. Because I'm an adult.

To get this manicure, I painted the bright coral as my base. It was so vivid and feminine without being girly that I really wanted it to be a dominant color (staining be damned). Then I painted my hand with the Vapid latex and waited. Once it dried, I just kinda slapped some polish on there. It's kinda ugly, but I kinda love it.

Check out the video!



I definitely need more video practice. Maybe once I'm moved, I'll have a better set-up for doing these. Regardless, at least my nails looked cool! Do you like dry-brush manicures? I think they always look fancier than they really are.
