Usually I look forward to Wednesdays so much because I don’t work on Wednesdays. However, a few weeks ago I had agreed to work overtime and completely forgot until my manager sent me a reminder on Tuesday. Working on my day off?
Do you know how much it sucks to not have two consecutive days off? I feel like I never have enough time to do anything or really have a break. However, I could always use the extra cash for polish…I mean bills…I mean polish. I only worked half a day so I guess technically it wasn’t that bad, but I had a bunch of errands to do and also needed to do a bunch of laundry. Now I’m doing laundry instead of playing with my nephew the entire time. Harrumph! Anyway, I did get a chance to swatch a couple of polishes earlier in the week that Krys from Vapid Lacquer had sent me. These are some delicious linear holos so I hope you enjoy the rainbow.
Vapid Lacquer In The Pink is a great pink holo that comes alive in sunlight. I tried to swatch both of these in direct sunlight for about 3 days, but every time I was ready it became overcast–every single time! I had to use my light box and some different lighting to get this to show the awesome holo. The formula is a little sheer so I applied 3 coats for my swatches above. You guys know I love pink nail polish, so I love this. The only thing I want to make you aware of is that this polish stained my nails a lot. I had bright pink nails after I removed this and not even pure acetone helped so I buffed them lightly to get rid of the staining. I didn’t wear a base coat when I swatched it so I do recommend a good base coat to minimize any staining.
As an avid purple lover, I was instantly in love with Vapid Lacquer Grape Stomp. It is such a vibrant purple with a strong holo effect. In direct sunlight, the linear holo effect is much more pronounced–it’s absolutely gorgeous. This also needed three coats for full opacity and did not stain at all.
Overall, I am very happy with my first experience with Vapid Lacquer. I have three other polishes from this brand that I will be sharing with you later this week and they are all very pretty. Both of these polishes can be purchase at the Vapid Lacquer shop for $9.50 each for a full size bottle and $5.00 for a mini. Let me know what you think about these beautiful holos. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!
