Vapid Lacquer - The Element of Neon Collection

Press Sample 

Greetings! Today, I have Vapid Lacquer's The Element of Neon Collection to share with you! This collection consists of ten holographic polishes. Krys, the mastermind behind Vapid Lacquer was inspired by the element Neon, or Ne, as you would see on the Periodic Table of Elements. All the polish names are related to Neon in some way.                               
                                                                   

All swatches were topped with a coat of Vapid Lacquer's Quick Dry Top Coat for a nice, glossy finish. Now, let's get to these vibrant beauties! 




Direct Sunlight
Cryogenic Refrigerant is a polish composed completely of spectraflair holographic pigment. So, in simpler terms, it is 100% pure holo! Shown here is two coats, but it was almost a one coater. Holy holo goodness! I was mesmerized when I had this baby on!

The holo is strong with this one.







Melting Point 248.67°C is a deep pink creme polish with a subtle scattered and linear holographic shimmer. Shown here is two coats. This is the deeper pink of the two in this collection. Check the collage at the top to see them side-by-side.






Ne is a hot barbie pink creme polish with a subtle scattered and linear holographic shimmer. Shown here is two coats. This color is so light and bright! 






Neon Plasma is a deep reddish orange creme polish with a subtle scattered and linear holographic shimmer. Shown here is two coats. This is an orange I can totally get behind. So gorgeous!






Gas Lazers!! is a true orange creme polish with a subtle scattered and linear holographic shimmer. Shown here is two coats. Gas Lazers!! has more a yellow hint compared to Neon Plasma. To see a side-by-side comparison, check the collage above.






Neos is a yellow creme polish with a subtle scattered and linear holographic shimmer. Shown here is two coats. Not typically a fan of yellow, but holo yellow is where it is at!






Atomic #10 is a lime green creme polish with a subtle scattered and linear holographic shimmer. Shown here is two coats. This green is so perfect!






Fractional Distillation is a a deep sky blue creme polish with a subtle scattered and linear holographic shimmer. Shown here is two coats. This is such a lovely blue! I become more and more obsessed with blue each day, and the two blues in this collection have certainly helped that along.






Boiling Point 246.048°C is a vibrant purple creme polish with a subtle scattered and linear holographic shimmer. Shown here is two coats. Don't even get me started on how much I love this purple! Krys makes some wicked purples!






Noble Gas is a deep cobalt blue creme polish with a subtle scattered and linear holographic shimmer. Shown here is two coats. Another perfect blue! I love a good dark blue, and the addition of holo makes it even better. 






The question that surrounded this collection was whether or not these beautiful neon holos worked for water marble. I started with a base of Cryogenic Refrigerant. All of the neons seemed to spread pretty well, but I felt that Noble Gas and Ne spread a little too thin to marble well so I excluded them. These look so wicked marbled. Totally psychedelic! I also used Vapid Lacquer's Catsuit liquid latex to keep my skin clean during the water marble process; it did the trick and had a very satisfying peel! 





This collection is so fun, so I also did a simple dotticure gradient using all of the polishes. Not pictured in this image is Melting Point 248.67°C because it was on my thumb. This particular mani was topped with strawberry champagne scented Gem Glam Top Coat, instead of Vapid Lacquer's Quick Dry Top Coat because I wore this for a week while I was out of town and I wanted to be able to smell my fingers. Weird much? 





This collection is so cohesive! All the colors work seamlessly together to create some super fun nail art. The formulas were super smooth and easy to work with, which is typical of Vapid Lacquer polishes. All were opaque in two coats, but I imagine many of them could work in one thicker coat. I've never met a Vapid Lacquer that I didn't like, so be sure to check Vapid Lacquer out if you haven't already!
This collection will be restocked in August, so be sure to follow Vapid Lacquer on Instagram for more restock information.
