Vapid Lacquer | Dry Brush & Microdots

Dry brush manicures are becoming a thing for me. I can't get over these. There is something delightfully 80's about them that just enthralls me. And since I am driving this crazy bus, you all get to see them too!

Is it just me, or does this remind you of late 1980's drapery patterns you might find in a dentists office? Also, I kinda love that. It is kitchy-but-modern. I think these sorts of manicures are my guilty pleasure! What is yours? Do you have a bit of art that you can't help but love?
