Hello again lovely readers! I’m back with another round of fresh releases to show you all! This time we’ve got Vapid’s February release and celebration of brand owner Krys’ birthday! This is one HUGE release with LOADS of lotions, sauces, and other bath and body goodies along with one new polish shade and a recreate of an oldie but goodie. Let’s check out the polishes!
Birthday Bitch 2020: a turquoise base swimming with pink/gold/green shifting ultra chrome flakes. This is the original recipe for the first Birthday Bitch and is very limited in ingredients, so this is capped at 250 bottles.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is ultra creamy and smooth on application. I own the original bottle when this first came out, and I’ve hoarded it and barely worn it to save my bottle. This is identical, and just as magical as the first. The flakes are lovely and rainbow-like and it dries down somewhat flat, so a glossy topcoat will really make them pop.
Hustle and Cuss: a thermal cream that shifts black/brown when cold to red/ruby red when warm. This dries down to a satin finish.
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is very creamy, and has a bit of a crelly feel on application. I think most will be fine at two coats, though if you use thinner application then three will be just fine. This is very sensitive to temperature and easily transitioned for me while I was painting. The warm state gets to be a very bright rusty red, and the cold state is what I would consider a very vampy chocolate brown that flirts with black. This dries down matte, so either glossy or matte I think it’d look fantastic.
Both polishes will release along with a HUGE amount of bath and body products starting 2/29 at 1pm CST. The preorder will run through 3/6 at 11:59pm CST. Also in this preorder is the AMAZING body butter. I’ll have a full review of that in my March Polish Pickup review but, trust me that it’s GOOD. This is a massive preorder and there is some awesome stuff being released (I spied a Sugared Rose scent… that’ll be mine). There is a flat $5 shipping rate (wooo!) and orders are expected to ship within an estimated 6 week turn around time. Because it’s a preorder, orders will not be combined in shipping.
Thanks so much for reading! ❤
