10 Year Blog Anniversary | Vapid Lacquer

by Lisa Heath

Giveaway Items Gifted by Vapid Lacquer

Okay I missed yesterday – but it was Nick’s 32nd bday and I was busy. I also got to work from home yesterday due to the weather, and Jacob had a snow day from school… so Nick got a full house for his bday. Of course he also works from home, so since he’s in meetings all day and I would be on the phone with patients (HIPAA) I was in a different section of the house for privacy reasons. Bonus of having an extra bedroom – we can all spread out.

Anyways – for day 7 we have Vapid Lacquer!

As most know, I’m an admin for the Vapicorns FB group. Vapid Lacquer was actually the first group I was a mod or admin for. So for the past 5 or 6 years I have swatched every single release Krys has released. She rarely does customs either, so I was thrilled when she said she would be happy to create a polish for my 10 year blog anniversary!

To celebrate my 10 years of constant posts – I have asked for maker volunteers to create a custom polish for a series of giveaways! Each maker donated at least 2 bottles of a custom – one for me to swatch and keep for the milestone and one to giveaway. 

While they made the custom for my blog – makers were given permission to release the custom at a later date. Not all will do this – some literally made it but didn’t save a recipe while others do intend to release it later. So I did make sure there was no exclusivity to the polish, and it’s up to the makers discretion.

Each maker had free rein to create what they wished to. I am a swatcher and not a maker for a reason and each individual maker has their own signature touch.

10 Year Blog Anniversary | Vapid Lacquer

Beep Boop is a medium-deep grey jelly base loaded with red to gold to green shifting aurora pigment and matching iridescent flakes that range from micro to large (see that honker on my ring finger nail?) and it has a dash of reflect glitter for a bit of added sparkle.

Shown is 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat.

Krys does intend on having a whole collection with this style out eventually – and it most likely will include this polish.

The Rules for The Giveaway

I will have a new giveaway up each day . Because of my schedule – I will draw winners for all giveaways ending that previous week on Sunday nights. I have each item in my possession so I will contact each winner for shipping information and then ship within 5 business days of receiving the shipping information.

To check out other active giveaways for this celebration – head here: https://www.cosmeticsanctuary.com/category/giveaway/current-giveaways/

I will only display the winners name on the widget AFTER the winner has responded to my email notifying they have won. I will be emailing from [email protected] – so please make sure the email is not in spam. If I have not received a response in 10 business days, I will draw a new winner and previous winner will forfeit their prize.

I display the names after because I have had people try to create emails and claim to be the winner before.

I will provide tracking for each winner. I am not responsible for lost or stolen packages. Once I ship, it’s out of my hands and I do not have replacement bottles.

Giveaway is open to EVERYONE. I will ship internationally for this because I want everyone who has followed along with me over the last 10 years to have a chance. Again though, if the package is missing, lost, stolen or confiscated on the way – I am not responsible for it and I will not be replacing.

I have made entering requirements easy. There are mandatory entries and one optional. The optional is only if you want an additional entry. The mandatory one you can come back daily to do as well if you wish to for more entries.

If you have additional questions, please email me at [email protected] and I will be happy to answer.

Thank you Krys for taking a chance on me as your mod, and then somehow upgrading me to admin :D

Fave Vapid is Grape Stomp, but I love all of Krys’ crellies too, like Snowball’s Chance which has captured my heart.

I don’t know my favorite Vapid. I have quite a few but haven’t played with them lately. If I looked back, I’d probably pick one of the purples, but offhand, I’m enjoying biohazard, and a dead Sweaters and Denim I got in a destash and didn’t know it had been a thermal. To me it was just a lovely neutral polish.

Most of the time multicolor flakes get swallowed up by a black jelly or crelly base and you can’t see them from a foot away. Not so with Pestilence! Not only is it my favorite Vapid, it’s my favorite black base multicolor flakie polish. Also, I love Vapid’s waxes.

My first ever vapid order years ago included Firestarter, and I think I can safely say it is still my favorite. There is no other red like it. But I also love vapid’s body products- some of the only scented products i can safely use! I don’t know how Krys magically created scented items that don’t bother me, but here we are ‍♀️ I have an entire bathroom closet full of body sprays, perfume oils, nail sauces, soaps, and face products.
