Vapid Lacquer - February 2018 Releases

February is a very exciting month around Vapid Headquarters because it's Krys, the genius behind Vapid Lacquer's Birthday Month!  Happy Birthday Krys!

This year Vapid Lacquer is bringing you 10 new polishes, and one Birthday Bitch, who has gotten a bit of a makeover, and it's kind of amazing.


Let's start with some details.
When:  Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 1pm CST.  

There will be a limited number of stock available for each, so if there is something you really want, grab it first.

This release will also contain other, non-polish, items!  There will be new Perfume Oil Rollerballs, and bath and body items too.  But, we'll get into that more at the end.

Now, let's jump on into those polishes!

I'm going to start with the Basic Bitch Collection.


The Basic Bitch Collection is a gorgeous set of shimmery nudes.  The basics of every solid collection are started here and Vapid Lacquer does plan on building on these shades.  They have some contrasting shimmer in some of the shades for a pop of color.

Basic Bitch V03


V03 is described as a soft shimmering ethereal petal pink.

Shown here is 2 coats plus Vapid Lacquer's High Shine Quick Dry Top Coat.  

The formula was excellent, it was very smooth and applied easily.






Basic Bitch V07



V07 is described as a milky sandy base with a blurple\magenta shimmer.

I felt my swatches didn't do this justice.  It reminded both me and my boyfriend of a seashell in person.  It had that delicate glow to it.  I took a picture of it in regular indoor light with my iPhone, which was able to capture it better. I will include that picture as the last swatch in this set.

Basic Bitch V09


Basic Bitch V09 is described as a light dusty pink with gold shimmer.

Shown here is 3 thin coats plus Vapid Lacquer's High Shine Quick Dry Top Coat.  

The formula was excellent, it was very smooth and applied easily.






Basic Bitch V11



Basic Bitch V11 is described as a cool toned dusty rose with blue shimmer.

When I applied my first coat, I audibly said "oooh".   The shimmer just leaps off your nails at you.  It positively glows.  

Shown here is 3 thin coats plus Vapid Lacquer's High Shine Quick Dry Top Coat.  

The formula was excellent, it was very smooth and applied easily.

  





Basic Bitch V15



Basic Bitch V15 is described as a warm-toned nude rose with a silvery sheen.

Shown here is 3 thin coats plus Vapid Lacquer's High Shine Quick Dry Top Coat.  

The formula was excellent, it was very smooth and applied easily.






Basic Bitch V21


Basic Bitch V21 is described as a brick like pink with pink shimmer.

Shown here is 2 coats without Vapid Lacquer's High Shine Quick Dry Top Coat.  My brother started talking to me when I was swatching and I didn't realize I forgot to add the top coat until much later.  It was so shiny on its own, I completely didn't realize.

This entire collection is similar, so if you want to skip the top coat, step,  you totally can.

The formula was excellent, it was very smooth and applied easily.







Basic Bitch V29


Basic Bitch V29 is described as a rose gold with gold shimmer and a light scattered holo.

Shown here is 2 coats plus Vapid Lacquer's High Shine Quick Dry Top Coat.  

The formula was excellent, it was very smooth and applied easily.







Basic Bitch V31


Basic Bitch V31 is described as a smooth milk chocolate with a peeking holo sparkle.

This shade is the perfect milk chocolate.  It may or may not have made me go grab a mini Hershey's bar from the chocolate drawer we totally don't have! ;) 

Shown here is 2 coats plus Vapid Lacquer's High Shine Quick Dry Top Coat.  

The formula was excellent, it was very smooth and applied easily.






Basic Bitch V33


Basic Bitch V33 is described as a dark, shimmering cocoa.

V33 is another favorite.  I absolutely LOVE this polish.  It's such a rich, perfect brown.

Shown here is 2 coats plus Vapid Lacquer's High Shine Quick Dry Top Coat.  

The formula was excellent, it was very smooth and applied easily.








Criminal Mischief 



Criminal Mischief is a complimentary shade to the Basic Bitch Collection.  It is described as a berry leaning shimmering red.

Criminal Mischief looks amazing both glossy and matte, which I will also be showing you.  Red polishes usually intimidate me because they're so bold, and I'm very much the opposite.  This one, however, can't be denied, it's gorgeous and glowy, and I feel a little daring wearing it, which I liked!

Birthday Bitch 2018



Last, but certainly not least, is Birthday Bitch 2018, and this bitch has been given a makeover!  She's a thermal polish for 2018!

Birthday Bitch 2018 has a turquoise hue when cold and turns to a shimmering gray when warm.  It's a little deeper this year with a splash of holographic rainbows, a shimmer that shifts, and pink-gold-green-shifting flakies.

I always get a little picture happy with Thermals, so prepare yourselves!

Now for some pictures of Birthday Bitch 2018 in transition!








Isn't that a gorgeous lineup for this February 2018 release? 

But wait! There is more!

Also releasing February 17, 2018 at 1pm CST will be new bath and body items!


Vapid Lacquer will be launching a new line of Perfume Oil! 

This Perfume Oil is different from their Body Mists in that the fragrance is more concentrated and is not used for a full body emersion but for a small burst of scent.  

These sulfate free fragrances are swimming in light and quickly absorbing fractionated coconut oil.

They will be available in a rollerball style like you see above and they are perfect to just roll on. toss in your purse, and go.

The basic application spots are the best, i.e. the throat, back of your neck, just below your hairline, your wrist, etc. 

The scent I received was Candy Clouds.  It is described as a tart lemon zest and sweet lemon curd, a dollop of vanilla and a whole cloud of cotton candy! Light and lip-smacking sweet!

If you are already familiar with and love the scent, you will be very happy because this smells exactly like all the other Candy Cloud products I have tried, which made me incredibly happy as it is one of my favorite scents.  Now I get to smell good enough to eat! 


Also available this month will be Body Cream, Body Bars, Body Mist, Nail Sauce, Nail Elixirs, Whipped Sugar Scrubs, Fluffy Whipped Soap, Skin Care, and Beard Oil!  You will see some new scents along with your favorites.  

Vapid will also be introducing bar soaps back to their Bath and Body care line!  

That was a lot of information, so I'll remind you of the launch date and time one last time before I go,
