Vapid Lacquer has been teasing us for weeks about the upcoming Black Friday restock. Even I don't know the full scope of the majesty. I do have a massive post full of glittering goodies to share today, and let me tell you...you're gonna wanna see this. You might want to get a snack.
(promotional samples ahead)
Black Friday '16
This is a blackened espresso with a coppery bronze shimmer and purple sparks. It is super opaque. I probably could have made this one a one-coater if I had tried. As it is, I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
What is a holiday restock without a forest green? This is a vivid, reflective emerald with teal edges. It does that weird shifting thing where its a different color close up (or close to a light source) than it is far away. I like that weird thing. The formula is delightful and I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
Happy Freakin' New Year '16
Do you want to be a disco ball? Because this is how you become a disco ball. Or maybe a lounge singer...I dunno. This is a crazy-pants silver holo made up of tiny tiny flakes. It looks alive as you apply it to your nails. It is crazy opaque as well, and while I used three coats here I think you would only need two for real life.
This is a smoky, moody oil-slick multichrome sprinkled with
stars holo. It shifts in all the best directions, though I nearly dislocated my elbow trying to catch those stubborn shifts. This is one of those shades that is happiest on wiggling fingers as opposed to my lightbox. The formula was surprisingly free of brush strokes and it was opaque in just two normal coats.
Hellooooo Sexy. This is a satiny cherry red holo with a subtle warm gold shimmer. This is the color for all those Christmas parties you have coming up. It reminds me of a poison apple, covered in rainbows. I don't know what witchcraft Ms Krys does, but she makes the best one-coat reds. I used two here, but that second one made zero difference.
This is a warm, vintage gold. It is metallic and glowing and holo and yes. This isn't my favorite shade against my skintone, but I do love the color. It definitely feels like the holidays to me. This shade is so opaque that it, too, could be opaque in one coat. I bet it even stamps well. I used two coats here, but the second made no difference.
This quartet has been long-awaited. Previously, it was only available in the tiniest of amounts and never for purchase online. These pigments are hard to find and, as such, are not guaranteed to ever be restocked. They are a "glass UCC microflake and they are clear and interesting in shift." That, ladies and gents, is an understatement. These were all spectacular. And...all shown without undies. What all of these have in common is an otherwordly vibrancy to them. They are those unique polishes that glitter and shift like living things on the nail, and even the videos I took did no justice.
NPX-BPROThis one is a blue-facing violet with a breath of green at the edges. It applied like a living creature and was opaque in two coats.
This shade reminded me of a reptile, and it made me so sad that I didn't have some sort of reptillian stencils or stamp. It is a golden olive with cool teal green edges. Again, its alive. ALIVE. And again, I used two coats plus Seche Vite here.
If you watched my
horrible unboxing video, you might remember that I mentioned one shade looks a bit like a blackened peach. Well...this is the one. I wasn't far off, considering the lighting. This is a rosy smoked peach with olive edges. This one felt the most neutral to me...if any of these could really be considered "neutral". At oblique angles, this stunning gold shows up...and yeah. Love this one. Again, I used two coats here.
This one might be my favorite, only because I am so biased towards teals. It goes through the cooler end of the jewelry box, which is why I love it. I used three thin coats here, but honestly I saw no difference between the second and third coats. I wish I could have this in a lipstick. Ohman...that would be sweet.
Candy Cane Cupcake Box
"This box will be $25, this box will contain "Festive" a red jelly-like polish with holographic red glitter. Also included in this box are the following items in the scent "Candy Cane Cupcake" - Body Cream 4 oz, Nail Sauce .6 oz, Whipped Frosting Salt Scrub 2.9 oz, and a Peppermint Sweet Lip Balm! As well as a Gift to you of a Vapid Wax Melt in our Candy Cane Cupcake scent! All the items in this, excluding the Wax Melt, are going to be offered separately on site. When this box sells out, we will not be able to make more in a timely fashion, oversells of the CCC items will be handled with credits or refunds. This is available at this restock only, though I have a feeling it will return and be available next year! "
This is a flawless red jelly filled with all sorts of red and orange glitters. I think I even see a few fuchsia ones in there? I was worried about this one, as jellies tend to not agree with me at all. But this one applied evenly and opaque in two coats. Yup. Two. I slapped on a layer of Seche Vite and then went out to fight with my lights.
I haven't had a chance to really play with the other goodies here...but I can say that the body cream is delightfully sweet and pepperminty. I used it that day (for science) and the nail sauce is also quite yummy. The wax melt is getting saved for the New House. If you have ever tried Vapid body/skin care...you know the level of quality you'll be getting here.
I lifted the restock list from the Vapicorn fan group. You should join up so that you can get a heads up on all upcoming events! It is a great group of folk.
