Guest Post by Painted Fingertips: Vapid Lacquer Spider and the Fly + Cryogenic Refrigerant

Hi everyone!

I am so honoured to be on Jessica’s blog today! Be Happy And Buy Polish has been one of my favourite blogs to follow ever since I first started getting into nail art and Jessica is a delight. I hope you’ll enjoy the nail art I have to share with you today, and if you do, come and visit me at Painted Fingertips!Painted Fingertips | Guest post for Be Happy, Buy Polish - green and silver stripes

I’ve used two gorgeous polishes from Vapid Lacquer to create this nail art. I started off with a base of Vapid Spider and the Fly, a stunning forest green. Once it was completely dry, I made some patterns on my nails using tape and painted over it with Vapid Cryogenic Refrigerant. I peeled the tape off carefully and added a top coat to finish it off.

I’m relatively new to Vapid Lacquer, despite the fact that it’s been popular in the nail world for a while now, and I am really glad I got my hands on these! They are gorgeous and work beautifully together.

Smoosh Nail Art manicure with Vapid Lacquer Round ‘N’ Round, Girly Bits Cosmetics Terra

Gift buttonThis manicure was one of those, “I’ll start with these polishes and see where I end up” manis. 😛 Which are actually fun to do because sometimes they really work out and you love them (and yes, sometimes they don’t work out). I first started off with Vapid Lacquer Round ‘N’ Round and Girly Bits Cosmetics Terra [Hella Holo Customs nail polish].

Vapid Lacquer Happily Ever After swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonSo funny story about this polish – I could have sworn that I showed it to you. Like, I searched my archives several times and was surprised each time it came back that I had not, indeed, shown it to you. I guess it’s about high time you get to see my swatches of Vapid Lacquer Happily Ever After.

Well I hope the rest of your week goes well!
