If you’re a Vapid Lacquer fan (polish, bath, body), our days of purchasing from this great brand is limited. According to Krys, Vapid as we know it will be closing in August this year. (This does not affect Vapid Wax by the way! ) I’m so blessed to have been a part of the Vapid family and for serving on their Facebook team for as long as I have. As much as it is a sad time, it is exciting to see which oldies Krys is able to bring out of storage. With that in mind, May 2019’s Release contains five nail polishes, one is a rerelease of the fan favorite, Drunk Yoga. Also included are three new shades of lip gloss, alongside the restock of countless of your favorite bath and body products. Without further blah blah, lets jump right into the Vapid Lacquer May 2019 Release!
Vapid Lacquer May 2019 – Polish
Drunk Yoga 2019
Starting things off is the Oldie Goldie in this mix, Drunk Yoga! Drunk Yoga has a violet jelly base with green to violet shifty flakes and purple glitters. There’s the tiniest bit of texture left behind from the glitters but this is easily smoothed over with topcoat. This is my first time owning Drunk Yoga and I can see why it’s a fan favorite. The glitters are so playful in the jelly base. The clarity of the base leads to a little bit of visible nail line (VNL), but if that bothers you, you can either wear thicker coats or wear this as a topper over black, navy or a similar shade. It’s pretty versatile! I’m wearing three thin coats with a glossy topcoat.
Next up is Heathen! I immediately think of the 21 Pilots song! Heathen is grape base ultra chrome that shifts from purple to magenta, blue to green. The shift here comes with ease and without restraint. I’m still so easily tickled by a shifty multichrome polish. The application is smooth, building up quickly and dries to a shine. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Deviant comes in with the berry tones I love and then throws in some cool shimmer to perplex you just a bit. It has a brick-berry base with shifts of green to blue, red to magenta-violet, and golden orange at extreme angles. The shifts here are so fun to observe. This is one I definitely need to wear during the daytime. Deviant applies with the consistency of a jelly but builds to intensity really quickly. It dries to a nice shine but topcoat really helps meld all the elements together. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Here we have Introspection, aka, my favorite thing to do at 3am 😃. And, spoiler alert, there’s a matching lip gloss! You’re welcome…or not, whatever, I’m excited! Introspection has a cool golden base with a mixing of blue and purple shifting micro flakes. It definitely draws on its golden hue on me while on other swatchers, it appears to wear like a shimmery nude. Also, Introspection shows up way warmer on camera than in real life; it’s rather cool on me and the blue and purple flakes really show. It has a bit of a foil/metallic look with pops of color from those micro flakes. There’s not texture when it dries and it has a bit of a flat look that comes alive with topcoat. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Finally, on the polish side of things is, Contemplation! This is a dusty, yet bright robin’s egg denim blue with a striking red to gold to green iridescent shifty shimmer. Contemplation applies buttery smooth. While this shade is on the cooler end of the spectrum, there’s a bit of warmth from the shimmer. Despite it being the more understated of the this release, I’m so in love with this polish, ya’ll; I’m totally feeling it. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Vapid Lacquer May 2019 – Lip Gloss
These three lip glosses are moisturizing, high shine and slightly sweet. They have a light buttercream frosting scent without any stickiness.
Tease is a pink based coral with a warming golden shimmer. If you remember Platonic, you can call this one her Summer sister. Out of the three lippies, this one wore the most subdued and the least opaque on me. It took about three coats to achieve this look.
I teased it, now here it is, Introspection – the lip gloss! It is tit for tat a replica of the polish with the same gold base and pops of purple and blue. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this. I was not surprised by how many times I said “I love gold” a la Goldmember. Yes, I am a child. It took two coats to achieve this look.
Picture me frolicking on the beach at sunset, clutching my huge tube of French Press and looking at it like it just handed me a million bucks and told me Florida no longer has mosquitos. That’s how much I love this lip gloss, I have time to daydream about it. I was excited as soon as I knew there would be brown in the mix but I didn’t expect to love it this much. This is a deep brown with a golden shimmer and it’s so pigmented. At some angles it almost looks olive, which unleashes a feral growl in me! So in love! This is my favorite of all the lip glosses Krys has released to date! It took two coats to achieve this look.
There you have it, folks! That’s just a bit what you can expect to grab today. If like me, you’re new to Drunk Yoga, you’re gonna want to add it to your collection.
