Is there any thermal shade as beloved as Vapid Lacquer's Sweaters 'n' Denim? Well...ok, but not many. This is the long-sought-after shifting thermal...and one of the first shades from this brand that I ever saw. I am so stoked to be bringing you some pictures of this polish today guys. I promise that is surpassed any and all expectations I had.
(promotional samples ahead)
This shade...I don't even know where to being. The basics are that it is a flawless, smooth formula with a delicate and refined copper shimmer. It was so easy to apply, and I think I heard an angel weep with happiness as I applied my second coat. I only used two thin coats in this post (to save The Preciousssss) but it could do with a third if the faint VNL bugs you. Honestly, if you have a free edge...you won't notice the line at all because of the shift. It wore like iron for me too, which was fabulous. I used Gelous + two coats + Seche Vite and it survived chip/scuff free for four days. Four days of "my mother-in-law is coming" level cleaning. So, if you were curious...this polish gets a thumbs up from me.
I say "cool" because of course I swatched this on a warm day, and I never could catch the deepest denim blue that this shade is capable of. The cool state reminds me of the most soothing, comfy beat-up denim jeans. You know, the ones that make your ass look good and don't pinch you anywhere...that is the cool color here. It is just lovely. The copper shimmer contrasts nicely here.
This is the peachy nude that dreams are made of. The copper shimmer drifts into the background as this turns into the most amazing SFW shade. It reminds me of my Peaches & Cream Barbie Doll, which kinda tugs at my heart strings a bit. My favorite part of thermals is the built-in french manicure, the length of which changes depending on the temperature.
I made a video to show how quick this shade shifts, even under a layer of top coat. I am impressed.
I love this one so much! Its lost in my stash currently, I need to find it!ReplyDelete
I'm kinda surprised this only made it to your blog now! I love mine so much more in person.ReplyDelete
I was saving it for this week. For reasons.Delete
You made me buy this, and I'm not sorry. :pReplyDelete
A shifting thermal. How beautiful!ReplyDelete
That shift is amazing! Impressive that it survived four days of cleaning!ReplyDelete
I've had my eye on this one for a while. The only thing that's holding me back is that darn thermal shelf life. I usually only get to wear them once before they croak =/ReplyDelete
Beautiful swatch and polish. Sadly, it still alludes me.ReplyDelete
Ha! You're too funny! Gotta love those jeans though....ReplyDelete
I got this one in the last restock! So happy I did! It's absolutely stunning!ReplyDelete
Weeellllllll, looks like I'm in love.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, this is super cool AND pretty. I really like the cool state blue, I would want a polish what was just that color.ReplyDelete
Oh wow, that shift is gorgeousReplyDelete
I've always loved this shade! I definitely need to get me a bottle.ReplyDelete
omg omg omg. I'll be honest, I don't buy a ton of polish anymore because nothing feels too unique, but I NEED THIS!!!ReplyDelete
I wish Vapid agreed with me. It's one of the few I haven't figured out the right combination of base/top coats to get it to stay on my nails.ReplyDelete
This is really pretty!ReplyDelete
This has been in my wishlist since its first appearance in theblogosphere! I really hope I can grab it some day.ReplyDelete
