I literally have no words. Why? Because, Vapid! That’s all. That’s all I have to say about this current situation. This is one post you are going to want to pay close attention to. Get out a pen and paper to take notes or rather bookmark the direct link to this post. Why? Because, Vapid! They have gone and done it again! They have created the impossible! 7 beautiful, must have colors for their Fall 2016 Collection. I know you probably think, “Krystal, you always say all the polishes are a ‘must haves’.” But they are and it’s true. I only want to bring you the best of the best. The best colors, the best formulas, the best application, the best coverage….why?? Because, Vapid! No just kidding…kinda, but seriously because you deserve it. You work hard and you deserve the very best…polish! That is exactly what I have for you today! Hahahahaha…I started this off say I had no words. But how could I not? It’s Vapid!

Seriously, we have 7 rich, absolutely amazing, magical, bad@$$, strong, powerful, beautiful, sexy, perfect polishes to get through, so let’s get started.

**All swatches are done using Commitment Issues Peel-Off Base Coat by Vapid and Quick Dry, High Gloss Top Coat by Pro-FX. Photos are taken using artificial lights.**

FALL 2016 Collection


Ablaze is described as a bold orange holo w/ flashes of red sparkle.

Fire Starter

Fire Starter is described as a deep, sultry red shimmering polish w/ a wicked orange flash. 2 words…PERFECTLY STUNNING!

Spider and the Fly

Spider and the Fly is a deep forest, emerald green straight linear holo.

Weaponized Guilt

Weaponized Guilt is a black based, dark, burnished gold leaning green.

Moon Moth

Moon Moth is a sage green crème w/ a subtle pink shimmer.


Psilocybin is a milk chocolate brown holo w/ a shimmering purple/blue flash.


Distressed is a dark, dusty  blue base w/ a copper shimmer and a healthy smattering of holo flakes.

Overall, I think Vapid scored a 5 out of 5 with this collection. Gorgeous selection of colors, excellent formulas, easy application, great coverage and opacity. By the way, did you notice the new labels? They make it easier to see all the gorgeousness inside. I purposely swacthed Fire Starter last because I wanted to wear it for a few days and I got so many compliments from the moms at gymnastics. I was literally stopped and asked what brand I was wearing. VAPID!!! That was my opportunity to explain indies…imagine, having never heard of indie polish 🙂 I’m not sure if she’ll buy or not but she loved the color and even invited her hubby over to take a look who really didn’t see the gorgeousness that is Fire Starter but most don’t….hahaha.

Anywho, this collection releases THIS SUNDAY, September 25th, yes you read it right, SUNDAY at 1pm Central. (Pacific – 11am, Mountain – 12pm, Eastern – 2pm)!! They will NOT be available as a set, only as individuals in both full (16ml) and schmedium (9ml) sizes. Full size will be $10 and schmediums are $7.

Just a few more notes, since you have your paper and pen handy, be sure to add to your wishlist, the Halloween Collaboration Set. Vapid and The Holo Pineapple teamed up to bring us this unique and fun box which includes 2 polishes, BATNADO and Toil & Trouble, 5 hand painted and stamped magnets made with Vapid colors and a handmade sensory slime toy. This set is available in one size only for $29.

Thought I was done? Yeah right! More new treats have been added including LE Fall Scent, Drunken Pun’kin in body cream, nail sauce and digit dust and Pumpkin Ice Cream in wax melts. I will definitely be picking some of those up along with the Halloween 2014 Favorites! I’ve been waiting ALL year for these. Returning is Apparition, Vampires Don’t Sparkle, Purple Poison and Witching Hour. They are only available in full size and have the same amazing recipe as the original release. Be sure to check out swatches on IG on the Vapid page.
