Hello, Beautiful!

I have three shades of Vapour Organic Beauty's Vernissage 3-Free Nail Lacquer to share with you in this post: Trance, Looker, and Instinct. The shades Looker and Instinct are pretty cream shades, but the shade Trance is the holographic beauty! Let me know what shade is your favorite; my favorite is Trance!

Shade: Looker
This is a deep green shade, although it appears to be black in the photos. Trust me, it's a deep green and looks more green in person than in the photos.

Vapour Organic Beauty Vernissage 3-Free Nail Lacquer Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $12.00 (0.25 oz full size). Available on the Vapour Organic Beauty website.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Kisses

Vapour Vernissage is a highly curated line of nail lacquers. These new classics are chic with enough edge to keep you au courant.

Vernissage is a term artists have used since the days of 19th Century Parisian Salons. The term refers to the night before an art opening, when artists would do frantic last minute touch ups to their canvasses. These vernissages became raucous informal previews for selected patrons and friends of the artist.

Vapour invites you to celebrate in the spirit of a night in Paris; hear the timeless glittering laughter and champagne toasts in Vernissage 3-Free Nail Lacquer.

Vernissage gives you a super glossy shine, is long-wearing, chip resistant and smooth to the touch. Packaged in petite bottles to reduce the amount of unused polish that finds its way to the landfill.

Does NOT contain toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DHB), formaldehyde. This polish is non-toxic, safe for children and moms-to-be, and is cruelty free.

These polishes apply evenly and the creme shades are opaque in 1 to 2 coats. The holographic shade (Trance) needed 3 coats.

Currently available in 9 shades. I have three shades. My favorite is Trance since it's a holographic, and I'm obsessed with holographic polishes, although more sheer than the two creme shades (I used 3 coats instead of 2). The shade Looker is a gorgeous deep green that is practically opaque in one coat. The shade Instinct is a pretty red, although the brush for it was thinner than the other two so applying it wasn't as easy going but still applied nicely. I'd love to see even more shades in the future - including more holographic/shimmer shades.

Don't be shocked when you see the bottles in person; they are small. They look like mini's you may see in a Birchbox or something, but they still contain enough polish to last you a long time. Plus, how many times have you used up an entire bottle of nail polish? I will say that I think for the size they are pricey, which is why I rated them a 4 out of 5 instead of a 5 out of 5 Kisses. The formula, being a "healthy" nail polish, helps make up for the price a bit. If I were to buy shades in the future they'd have to be unique in some way to make me want to spend $12 on a mini bottle of polish, but that's just me.

This is a line of polishes I'd recommend checking out. Let me know what shade is your favorite!

  1. i love how detailed and informative your post always are. I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the sunshine award

  2. the shades are so vibrant and pretty....this brand is on my wishlist but the cyber monday deals left a big dent in my valet ...i wanna try their Borage Flower Oil

  3. 1 coat of Trance over Instinct could look really good. (Depending on how opaque or sheer Trance is)

  4. @ blimbo247: Thanks! :)

    @ Sarah: That's a great suggestion! :)

  5. Great photos, very detailed! I have Trance. I love the color/holographic. It goes on very smooth and wears well for someone who washes their hands dozens of times per day, gardens, types, crafts, and plays with dogs. As far as nontoxic or natural, that I'm not so sure about. As a person with multiple chemical sensitivities, unfortunately, I will not be buying it again due to the odor.
