I feel semi accomplished right now. Am I caught up on swatching? No. BUT I made a huge dent in my “to do” piled yesterday. My son had a weekend long sleepover, so I had full focus on swatching yesterday.
Little side thing here, cause I do this sometimes. My son has 2 best friends, Ethan and Collin. Ethan moved about a year ago and now lives about 2 hours away. Now, back when I was a kid – when someone moved away, that was usually it. Maybe a few phone calls – but that was on a landline and expensive so it didn’t last too long. With cell phones and FaceTime and all that now though? They talk like 5 nights a week and text a lot.
Anyways, so Ethan was here visiting with Collin for the weekend and they asked Jacob to stay over too. About a month ago I had all 3 boys for the WWE weekend in Sacramento, so I know for a fact it was a loud, rambunctious weekend that probably involved a lot of food. I am just glad they all got to see each other.
Okay so, because it was just me, Nick and the kitties – I got a lot done yesterday. Among the work done – I got the Vapid Lacquer My Little Vapicorns Collection completed!
This is the Spring 2018 collection for Vapid Lacquer and we’re going to be looking at 8 new shades. Within these 8 shades we have a lot of shimmer, plus 1 is a topper type shade similar to I’m Late! but it’s different enough to warrant getting both, as well as 2 new thermals.
I got up really early to do this post before I got to work, so let’s jump right in.
Easy As Pie!
Easy As Pie! is a bubblegum pink crelly with blue shimmer with a subtle shifting iridescent sparkle. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Pappy Pony Picked A Pluck of Prickly Pluffnuggets
This shade was a little harder to capture for me. My camera loves drawing out warmer shades within reds, oranges and yellows – and this did it too. This shade is actually a bit lighter and brighter in person.
Pappy Pony Picked A Pluck of Prickly Pluffnuggets is a bright, warm yellow crelly with a pink to aqua shifting shimmer with iridescent sparks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Oh, Hey! is a Granny Smith apple green crelly base with aqua blue shimmer and iridescent sparks. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
See, Now You’re Thinking Like A Pony!
See, Now You’re Thinking Like A Pony! is probably my favorite of the new releases. This is a softer, dusty blue crelly base with red shimmer and iridescent sparks. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
This is a touch dustier in person.
Fizzlepop Berrytwist! is a slightly dusty orchid crelly base with pink shimmer and iridescent sparks. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Fling is the first thermal I’ll be showing you, and this is a more subtle thermal, but you can still tell it changed. This is a vibrant rose pink while cold and it shifts to a lighter warm pink while warm, and it has pink shimmer and gold iridescent sparks. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Clique is a warm grape purple base while cold and it shifts to a vibrant orchid pink while warm, with reddish copper shimmer and gold iridescent sparks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
No Can Do, Sugar Cube!
No Can Do, Sugar Cube! is the topper! I used it alone for these photos, but then I did it over a black creme and a white creme.
No Can Do, Sugar Cube! is an offwhite iridescent topper with a violet shimmer and violet to blue shifting iridescent microglitters. I used 3 thin coats on it’s own, and 1 coat over the black creme and white creme.
Vapid Lacquer My Little Vapicorns Collection
How perfect are these for Spring? I had zero application issues with these shades. I generally apply polish in really thin layers, but I was able to do most of these in just 2 normal to slightly thicker coats. The consistency was really good, so I was able to grab more polish without it pooling in my cuticles and I did all of these with zero cleanup. That’s actually my secret to fast swatching – I can do most of it without cleanup. That’s my bragging moment.
There is more releasing this go, as always – Krys has some magic up her sleeve!
Prices TBA. As usual, Krys will make an announcement with more release info soon in the Vapicorns Facebook Group so keep an eye out there for it.
