Hi, dear readers!
Another great video from EngVid.com with my clarification.
“Learn English vocabulary in this advanced lesson that will help you express the negative characteristics that people have. Is that man at the shop a snob, or is he conceited? Is your sister vain or is she arrogant?”
Original: EngVid.com (with quiz)

– Very proud of one’s looks or abilities (by James)
– If you describe someone as vain, you are critical of their extreme pride in their own beauty, intelligence, or other good qualities. (Collins)
