Friends, this is a post I have dreaded writing. My final post for a Vapid Lacquer release. While the closing of such a beautiful chapter comes with a lot of sadness, Vapid will always have a warm and cherished place in my heart. How about a little trip down memory lane with me, then we will browse through the August 2019 Trio.
At the end of 2016, I was invited by Jennifer to swatch the January 2017 release for Vapid. At the time, I was still pretty much a beginner swatcher and honestly had no idea who Vapid was. I had no idea what I was in for. Y’all, this was when Krys released Cyber Punk. To say that was I spoiled from the get go is a huge understatement.
Later, Jenn convinced me to re-immerse myself into Facebook after leaving that platform for about 2 years. I was only on Instagram before that! The Vapicorns proved to be one of the wildest, giddiest, most un-vapid polish groups ever! So much wildness and weirdness, sharing and caring. I couldn’t ask for a more fun group to be a part of. #VapicornForLife
Shortly after, I was invited to the Vapicorn Facebook Team as a Moderator. I have had so much fun and have learned so much from these women. They helped me grow as a swatcher and encouraged me to branch out as a blogger. Yes, my heart weighs a little more and my throat tightens just a bit as I write this. These are some strong, funny, vulnerable and brave women and I feel so blessed to have shared such growing times with them. I truly love and adore you all. Follow them with me: Krys, Jenn, Del, Lisa, Nicole, Carol, Michelle & Yvette!
The Vapid August Trio
If these three shades are nudging some familiar spot in your memory, it’s because this is their mighty comeback. This trio was previously released at some point a few years ago for Hella Handmade Creations (Hella Holo Creations back then). They’ve all had a bit of an upgrade and name change, with an additional pop here and a harder punch there. This will be a limited release, so be ready! *cracks fingers*
Formerly known as Spellcaster, Sorceress greets you this time with an extra sprinkling of ultra chrome flakes, a dash more pigment, it also received the dirty treatment with the addition of holographic flakes. You can see ultra chrome shifts from brown to red to copper to pink with some greenish-gold and angles. The flakes in here breaks things up nicely while not dragging on the brush. Sorceress applies with ease and wears almost as one coat. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
…This Way Comes
…This Way Comes arrives not only with a revamp but a whole new name (witness protection, lol). This was previously released as Something Wicked and it still embodies the vampy purple characteristics of its predecessor. The base here is a bold purple liner holographic with and extra boost of purple shimmer and some holographic flakes. Again, I had a pretty easy application with this polish. I can definitely see this beauty making the rounds during Halloween. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Finally, we have Blue Moon. Similar to Sapphire Moon, this is a bright cobalt blue linear holographic with the addition of silver holographic flakes, a top-up of blue to gold shifting micro flakes and an extra helping of blue shimmer. It’s SO BLUE! I think these were my exact words after swatching it. I’m a wordsmith, I know! Blue Moon applied nearly as one coat for me; it’s very well pigmented and the consistency is lovely. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
I have cherished every moment I got to be part of the Vapicorn family. I’m incredibly thankful to Krys and Jenn for inviting me to be part of something so big and beautiful that has honestly changed my life. Despite this closing, I know that Vapid has left an indelible mark on the indie beauty community. For me, Vapid will continue to exist through that echo for a very long time.
