Vapid Lacquer Black Friday 2017

Evening beauties!  Almost Thanksgiving, are you ready?  I'm not!  I'll be prepping mashed potatoes tonight, running a race tomorrow morning and getting home to make ambrosia salad before heading to my mom's for dinner.  I also have to keep up with the kids schedules - we ended up being pretty busy, even during the week off!  Thankfully my hamstring is feeling a little better, phew!  But you're here for polish, and boy oh boy do I have an awesome polish post for you today.  Vapid Lacquer is launching a huge collection for Black Friday - some new, some old, all fabulous.  Available Friday 11/24 and the time will be announced in the Facebook group - if you're not a member you probably want to join up real quick!  Ok, let's jump in and check out the goods and trust me, there are LOTS of goods!

Starting this party off with Dusky, a deep purple with a touch of deep blue around the edges and a pinkish shimmer.  The overall feel of this one is dusty and it's totally gorgeous.  I love shades like this  because they are interesting and fun to wear.  Awesome formula, great application.  No issues to mention.  I used 2 coats and finished with topcoat.  




Gin Tastes Like Pine Trees is a pine green polish with a bit of that dusty/smokey vibe.  It's literally the closest shade to a real Christmas tree and I wish it had a pine scent because I'd be taking whiffs of my nails all day long.  The green shimmer adds a touch of magic, making it even that much more lovely.  Great formula, awesome application.  No problems.  I did want to note that I have no idea where that little bump on my middle nail came from, possibly a bubble?  Anyways, totally a fluke as the formula was nice and smooth.  2 coats plus topcoat for full coverage.  PS - I don't drink gin so I have no idea what it tastes like.  





Black Friday 2017 is a smokey black jelly full of brown and copper sparkles.  Love how squishy this one is, super jelly finish going on here people!  I also really like the smokey vibe, really makes me feel like my nails are mysterious.  Great formula, no problems with the jelly or glitter.  Applied easily.  3 coats plus topcoat, done!





Violet <3's Snowflakes is a vibrant violet shimmer full of teeny flakes and sparkles.  I believe this is a re-release but I'm not 100% on that.  Such a pretty color, great way to liven up your holiday outfit (because I know grey and black are prominent in the Winter months). Formula and application were both great, no problems.  I used 2 coats and topcoat to finish.  








Santa Baby 2017 is a beautiful cherry red with holo.  Humina human...this is my favorite.  It's amazing and beautiful and has that lit from with glow.  I love how the holo shows up as a fuchsia against the red.  But seriously tho, if you were only getting 1 polish out of the lot, get this one!  Awesome formula, creamy and opaque.  Application was dreamy.  2 coats and topcoat used.  




Krampus is a thermal!  GASP!  In the cold state it's this beautiful deep maroon shade full of tiny flakes.  It applied perfectly and is a fabulous color for the season.  Zero problems with formula or application.  I used 2 coats and topcoat.  





Warm state is this juicy pink-red.  The change is really easy and very noticeable!  





Here's Gilver!  I'm pretty much in love with this polish too because it's silver AND gold and the same time!  How does Vapid work this magic?!  I'm digging the metallic holo finish, pretty and futuristic.   If you want really fun nails, Gilver definitely gets the job done.  






Happy Freakin' New Year 2017 is a silver holo with shimmer and flecks.  Party in a bottle!  I wore this one for about 4 days and pretty much stared at my nails the whole time, walking in to things, trailing off when talking.  Hey, what can I say, I get distracted by sparkly things.  Another totally dreamy formula and fabulous application.  I had no problems with this one.  2 coats for full coverage and topcoat.  





Disambiguation...WHAT?, another thermal!!  It's a beautiful, bright amethyst shade full of turquoise shimmery flecks.  These contrasting colors go together perfectly!  You get this color when the polish is in the cold state.  I used 3 coats and topcoat for a glossy finish.    





In the cold state, Disambiguation is a bright aqua polish!  WOW, such a big color change!




Winter Midnight is a deep sapphire blue full of teeny flakes and sparkles.  Perfect blue for your Winter mani or nail art.  Formula and application were both great, nothing problematic to mention.  I used 2 coats and a layer of topcoat.  




Slay Bells is another super gorgeous red that just glows with beauty!  I don't even know how to describe this finish, but it's so glossy and full of depth and some sparkle.  Luxurious is probably a good word here.  Awesome formula, applied perfectly in 3 coats.  I finished with a layer of topcoat.    




The last of the polishes is Umbrageous.  This is a Holly green with a shimmer, holo finish. The deep shade is really nice, another totally perfect Winter shade.  Great formula, easy-peasy application.  No issues to report.  I used 2 coats plus topcoat.
