Vapid Lacquer - Ride or Die (swatches and review)

**press sample**
Hi guys! I just wanted to make a quick little post about an upcoming polish being released for pre-order from Vapid this weekend!

Ride or Die is an insanely holographic polish with a subtle mutichrome shift that changes from a slight aqua to a dusty purple! It's absolutely gorgeous! As Krys so expertly described it; think of it as Cryogenic Refrigerant's shify sister! Perfect description! From a straight on photo this appears much like Cryo, but with more of a blue tone. When I move my nails around and it hits the light at different angles, the glorious shiftiness makes my heart go pitter pat!

This has a fantastic formula as well! For all of my photos I did two thin coats plus topcoat, but in reality, you can almost get away with just one medium coat. It does dry slightly dull, so you'll want to use a glossy topcoat to really make the holo pop.

Below are all of my photo that I previously shared on Vapid's Facebook Fan Page; as well as the shifty videos! I think the bottle shots really give the best representation of the color shift.

Lastly, here is a quick comparison collage, so that you can see Cryo and Ride or Die next to each other

Ride or Die will be available for PRE-ORDER Saturday, June 11th through Sunday, June 19th. As of this moment, there are no plans to bring this back. It is limited edition!

They have also done a restock of the store, so be sure to check out the shop!

Thanks for reading!

    1. Unfortunately it was limited edition and is no longer available. You might join the Facebook fan group and post that you are in search of it
