Right on the Nail ~ Vapid Lacquer Valentine's Day Trio Swatches and Review: Like a Virgin



Vapid Lacquer Like a Virgin (3 coats)

Hi guys! I have more bad news, sorry. I really thought that the polish I'm showing tonight was still for sale, but I don't see it on the site. Blarg. I can still show you swatches and recommend purchasing from Vapid Lacquer because I've been extremely impressed with the polishes I've tried so far. Like a Virgin was part of a Valentine's Day Trio and is a soft white crelly with just a sprinkling of holographic shimmer. It's just so clean-looking! You know how white polishes tend to be streaky, right? Well, this is easily the best-applying white polish I own. I used 3 thin coats for the pictures above, but they built up so nicely.

Vapid Lacquer polishes range in price from $8-$11 depending on the finish (holos and thermals tend to cost the most, whereas cremes are the cheapest). There is a restock this weekend (April 30th) , so make sure to check out the website!

Right on the Nail ~ Vapid Lacquer Limited Edition Polish Swatches and Review: Birthday Bitch



Vapid Lacquer Birthday Bitch (3 coats)

Hi guys! Good news and bad news. Good news, I have a couple polishes from the popular indie brand Vapid Lacquer. Bad news, the polish I'm showing tonight is limited edition and is currently out of stock. Do you mind if I show it to you anyway? Every year Krys, the owner of Vapid Lacquer, releases the polish called Birthday Bitch on her birthday (I think she restocked it once as well). What makes this polish so special you may ask? The beautiful multichrome flakes! I'm going to say something controversial, but I just have to get it out: I like flakie polishes more than holographic polishes. Yes, I said it! The only criticism I have for Birthday Bitch is I wish it only needed 2 coats instead of 3.

Right on the Nail ~ OPI 2016 Hello Kitty Collection Swatches and Reviews Part II: My Pal Joey and Starry-Eyed for Dear Daniel


Hi guys! Anyone else have their allergies going crazy today? I've been sneezing with itchy eyes all day even after taking a Zyrtec. My husband has to take allergy pills 365 days a year, so I'm pretty lucky I just have to take it a few days out of the year. Tonight I have a couple of the brighter polishes from the OPI Hello Kitty Collection to share with you.

Right on the Nail ~ OPI 2016 Hello Kitty Collection Swatches and Reviews: Let's Be Friends and Look at My Bow!


RIP Prince. I was lucky enough to see him in concert a few years ago with my brother. 3rd row seats. During one of the songs, Prince wanted the lights up, and for everyone to sing a particular part. Of course my brother and I obliged. Prince happened to look over, smile, then point at me (or my brother...who knows)! My brother claimed he pointed at him. Truth be told, while I was a big fan, my brother was even bigger. He was the one who got the great tickets for us. I think Prince smiled and pointed at my brother. He probably saw the glee on his face. He put on such a great concert that I'll never forget.

On that depressing note, let's talk about something happy and lighthearted like Hello Kitty. The OPI Hello Kitty collection was released a few months ago and I just got around to buying a few. It's pink galore with a few splashes of color. Follow me after the break for more information.

Right on the Nail ~ OPI Spring 2016 New Orleans Collection Swatches and Reviews: I'm Sooo Swamped and Show Us Your Tips!


Hi guys! Tonight I have 2 polishes from the latest OPI collection that features polishes inspired by New Orleans (and I'm assuming Mardi Gras). I, like many other bloggers, thought the collection would be full of fun and bright colors that Mardi Gras is known for. OPI decided to go a bit of a different direction, and I would be lying if I said I wasn't a bit disappointed by some of the muted tones they included. Despite this, I still enjoyed the 2 colors I have to show you tonight. Swatch time!
