CANVAS lacquer Orchids

I have the privilege of sharing a polish from a brand new Canadian indie polish maker, CANVAS lacquer! CANVAS lacquer is the brainchild of two best friends, Alana and Lan, who opened their Etsy shop in March!  This is CANVAS lacquer Orchids.  Orchids is part of the CANVAS lacquer limited edition duo and is their nod to Pantone's Colour of the Year, Radiant Orchid.

CANVAS lacquer Orchids is a purple creme with pink undertones and soft silvery-blue shimmer that dries to a satin finish, as described on their shop.  

Different lighting.  This is a very bright purple, almost to the point of being neon.  Loved it!  The shimmer is stunning...makes it look ultraviolet to me lol!  The pix above is three coats; the pix below is two; both have no topcoat.

Decided to add stamping using an image from Lily Anna 10 with Konad white special polish.

Can see the shimmer well in this pix!

Didn't know what to put on the accent finger; decided to use another image from Lily Anna 10.  

Added random dots for pops of colour using a couple of Konad pearl special polishes in orange and hot pink.

Topped with SV to finish.

I have more CANVAS lacquers to review and they will be showing up soon! CANVAS lacquer also has a blog and I when I was stalking it, I noticed some fantastic nail art including stamping (note to self; need to try galaxy nails soon!)!

Thanks for looking!
