Vapid Lacquer | January 2019 Pre-Order

Is it really a new year without some goodies from Vapid Lacquer? I say no, no it is not. Today I have a delicious little trio of dynamic ultrachromes to share...you might want to grab a seat before viewing.

Vapid Lacquer | January 2019 Pre-Order

(promotional samples ahead)

Ultimatum | two coats
This is a proper, traditional vampy multichrome. If you like saturated purples and berries, this is your new favorite color. I was almost able to make this a one-coat-wonder, but I skimmed a thin second layer on to cover a few thinner patches near my tips. It goes on a little brush-strokey, but somehow it settles and blends on its own as it dries. It has a sunset shift, almost like an auroral pigment. You will be doing a lot of finger-waggles when you wear this one. I really like the shimmery, diffuse quality of the finish of this trio...but this one is my special favorite.

Melancholy | two coats
Does this steely blue look like is should be velvet to anyone else? I normally don't like blues like this, especially on my weirdly-slightly-yellowy-pink skintone...but I find this one to be really wearable. I love how restrained and muted this is--for a multichrome. It has a strong but subtle shift to violet, and is smooth and shimmering all over.

 A Little Madness | two coats
This is a galaxy in a bottle. It reminds me so strongly of artist renderings of the Milky Way galaxy that you almost ended up with nail art instead of a swatch for this one. It is a hyper-shimmering blue, similar in color to Melancholy, filled with shifting flakes. When you catch the shift on this one, it automatically reminds one of a dragon: all purple and sunsets and fire. I am going to try sponging the last layer on next time I wear it, just to see the change in finish.

Pre-Order Details
This is a pre-order, as opposed to a regular restock, so don't feel the OMGIMUSTORDERORDIE push...but these won't be back for 2019, so if you love them you shouldn't let them slip away. There will be a 3 per person, per color limit on these as well which will hopefully insure that everyone who wants them will get them.

The pre-order runs from 18 January, 2019 through 25 January, 2019. Exact times will be announced later in the month.

If you can only get one...man I don't know. I really like Ultimatum. I think it feels the most "me" and is the most wearable for everyone. But those blues are so sexy...and I fall all over myself for anything remotely spacey.
