Vapid Nail Lacquer Unicorn Blood XXX Dirty Holo

What can I say about Vapid Lacquer that hasn't been said a thousand times? This brand has made a name for itself with magical sparkly things...and this is right in line with all my hopes and dreams when I get the box in my mailbox.

Unicorn Blood, from the Fantasy Colors collection, is one of my favorite Vapid purples. It is soft and delicate and has a pretty gold pearl...sigh. And when Ms. Krys decided to make it dirty I knew we were in for a treat. 

I was right.

This dirty holo isn't as wild and crazy as the others, but I actually find that wholly appropriate. This is a soft, serene color. A SUPEROMGINYOFACE holo would have been wrong on such a color. But the dirtification of this one was just right. It's loud, but refined. In addition to the extra sparkle, the gold pearl is a little quieter now. It really is a whole 'nother shade. 

The formula is pretty and easy, and two coats will give you a nice opaque finish. I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here, and I was completely happy with the outcome.

Because I am not ready for the neighbors to know exactly how crazy I really am, here she is with the flash.

I was trying to catch the morning sun to compare the two bottles, and I decided to try making a quick little gif. This is just the Dirty Holo on my fingers, slightly out of focus to show that brilliance.
