Vapid Lacquer January 2017 Release + Hard Candy Box Set: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Helllo! I have a lot of new pretty and nice smelling things from Vapid Lacquer to share today. All the products shown will be available this Saturday, January 28th at 1 pm CST in Vapid Lacquer's shop.

Vapid Lacquer Cunning
Two coats
Light mink brown creme
A lighter toned brown that leans on the warm side but not too much so. Goes on nice and smooth in two opaque coats.




Vapid Lacquer Frosted Kisses 
Two coats
Pale strawberry pink creme
A sweet and soft pink that made me think of strawberry milk. Formula is a breeze, slightly on the thicker side and two coats for coverage. 




Vapid Lacquer Naivete 
Two coats
Pink toned nude creme
A seriously beautiful and understated neutral with pink undertones. I love a good light neutral to wear as a palette cleanser and this does that for me. I applied with heavier hand and got opacity in two coats, if you apply thinner coats, you may find that you need a third. 




Vapid Lacquer Swayed
Two coats
Pale mushroom taupe creme
This is the fourth neutral creme of the set and for those who like their gray/browns on the cool side, this one's for you. Formula was comparable to the other cremes, aka easy peasy to apply. 




Vapid Lacquer Petty
Two coats
Bright lime green creme with gold/green shifting shimmer
A POP of bright, fresh green with that tasty shimmer. It practicially shouts, "Are you ready for SPRING?!" Very nice opaque formula, almost a one-coater on me, but I applied a habitual second coat anyway. 




Vapid Lacquer Insipid 
Two coats
Berry purple jelly base with black, purple, and cherry red holo micro-glitter
Hello, you gorgeous polish you. Full of sparkle from the holo micro-glitter which are suspended in that juicy berry base. The glitter itself is not sparse but in a clear base you would need to build up, which is why I think it's perfect in the base that it is in, leaving you will coverage in two coats. Make sure to apply a healthy layer or two of topcoat, to leave you with the glassy, shiny finish. 





Vapid Lacquer Come Hither
Two coats
Fiery red creme with copper/red subtle shimmer
Part of the Hard Candy Set but available individually as well. 
YESSS. Red, of course, is my weakness and when it's done right, I basically fall over myself to wear it. This is most certainly done way right. Application was easy (no real surprise there) and again, two coats for coverage.





Vapid Lacquer Hard Candy 
Two coats
Bright magenta  with holographic silver micro-flakes
Part of the Hard Candy Set but available individually as well. 
A delicious punchy pink plus those silver holo flakes to contrast. You can see how the name Hard Candy fits here. No issues whatsoever with application, it glides on the nail in two coats. 




Hard Candy Box Set! 
Included is: Body Bar 0.75 oz twist tube, Body Cream 4 oz bottle, Sweetness Lip Balm, Whipped Sugar Scrub, Nail Sauce 0.6 oz tub, and a free gift of a wax melt. If you purchase this entire set, along with the Hard Candy and Come Hither polishes, the total will be $45, which is great price for all that you will receive. 

The Hard Candy scent is a sweet, sour and fruity one. Think of....Starburst or Pixie Sticks or Jolly Ranchers (a hard candy fav of my own), and that's what you've got. The scent will be available in all items outside of the set in limited quantities and may return in the future. The wax melts are a new product, hand made and poured. Just a little is needed goes a long way. 


Vapid Lacquer Onward Through the Fog
Layered over Vapid Lacquer Petty
Matte topcoat
This is a re-formulated release, meant to matte the shine but not dull the color. 
It dries down quickly and gives you a nice matte finish. I think it would appear even more matte if you waited a bit longer, my photos were taken about 15 minutes after applying. 




Vapid Lacquer Stardust
Layered over Cirque Colors Memento Mori
Linear holographic topcoat
Nothing fancy but an nicely done holo topcoat, which is something every polish fan should have their collection, in my opinion anyway. I do prefer a higher density holo as a topper myself but I know the higher density you go, the more it can gray out the base color. This is right there in the medium range, and shown as one coat over the black base.
