Vapid Lacquer - Goddess of Spring Collection (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! Today I have a gorgeous Spring collection to share with you! The Goddess of Spring Collection by Vapid Lacquer includes five beautiful pastel toned cremes that are each filled with corresponding colored flecks and a light hint of holo; as well as two fun glitters! This is a first of its kind for Vapid. Krys is not generally known for girly or ultra feminine colors, but I think she has definitely changed that with this collection! Let's take a look!

Persephone is a pale corally orange creme filled with a deeper orange toned flecks and a hint of sparkle! For my photos I did two coats plus topcoat; though, you may be able to get away with just one depending on your application.
(Persephone was the goddess queen of the underworld, wife of the god Haides and was also known as the goddess of spring growth)

Saraswati is a gorgeous lavender toned creme filled with darker purple specks and a beautiful purple flash that was very camera shy. I couldn't catch it in a photo to save my life! Again I did two coats plus topcoat. This is another that is on the edge of being a one coater!
(Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and learning. She is a part of the trinity of Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati. All the three forms help the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva to create, maintain and regenerate-recycle the Universe respectively)

Ostara is a lovely sunshine yellow creme. This one is filled with a ton of yellow flecks and a hint of shimmery sparkle! Perfect pastel yellow formula! Not thick at all and is opaque in just two coats!
(Painted eggs and white rabbits are sacred to Ostara, who is the Celtic Goddess of Spring, fertility and rebirth.. Osatara is also another name used to celebrate the Spring Equinox)

Aphrodite is a robin's egg blue creme filled with darker blue specks and a beautiful blue shimmer! Here I did both one and two coats. Can you tell a difference? I can't!
(Aphrodite was the goddess of love, desire and beauty! Aside from her natural beauty, she was said to also have a magical girdle that compelled everyone to desire her) I want one of those!

Ishtar is beautiful pastel pink creme with a smattering of red/dark pink specks and a touch of sparkle! Wonderful formula, needing just two coats plus topcoat!
(Ishtar was the goddess of love, war, fertility, and sexuality. Ishtar was the daughter of Anu. She was particularly worshipped in northern Mesopotamia, at the Assyrian cities of Nineveh, Ashur and Arbela. Besides the lions on her gate, her symbol is an eight-pointed star)

The last two polishes are fun little glitters that aren't part of the actual spring collection, but still make a great addition to the season for sure!

Pretty Pretty Princess is a a clear jelly base loaded with holo micro glitters, holo flakies and a pastel rainbow of various sized hex glitters. Super pretty! It can be worn as a topper or opaque on its own in two to three coats. Here I did three thin coats by itself! For not generally doing glitter polishes, Krys knocked this one out of the park!

Freckled Faerie is a clear jelly base filled with bright pops of fuchsia, aqua, purple, yellow, pink glitters in various sizes. Here I did two thin coats over Saraswati. Great glitter payoff, with absolutely no swirling or fishing!

Do they watermarble and stamp? YES! They watermarble perfectly! As for the stamping; while they aren't super vibrant once stamped, they do still show up pretty well for pastels that aren't really made for stamping.

Gorgeous Spring Collection and fantastic formulas as always ! These will all be available in Vapid Lacquer's shop March 26th! Mark your calenders!

I also wanted to note, that there has previously been frustration over the craziness surrounding Vapid's restocks and releases. Things selling out and no cart holds specifically. Krys has come to realize that she is a hot commodity and is stocking really well now! This last restock still had top sellers available into the next day!

Another helpful tip, is to be sure to create your account on the Vapid website prior to the release. Do it....do it now! :)

Thanks for reading!
