CANVAS lacquer Beyond the Wall

I have another CANVAS lacquer polish, Beyond the Wall, to share today. Beyond the Wall by CANVAS lacquer** is the the kind of glitter I love for top coating; loads of glitter and shimmer in one coat to provide lots of interest, perfect for layering as the base is sheer so lots of options when using it as a top coat on an opaque base  plus the added bonus of being perfect to use as some interest at the tips for funky frenches that I have a thing for!

Beyond the Wall by CANVAS lacquer is lightly tinted, it is one of those polishes that is used best as a top coat for added interest.  Started with a base of two coats of Dermelect Above It, no top coat.  (For Canadian gals who may be looking for Dermelect, this was a polish I picked up at Ulta on a cross border shopping trip.)

Added a coat of Beyond the Wall by CANVAS lacquer.  No topcoat in this pix.  Formula was good, application was easy and one coat had good coverage.  Two coats may have had more glitter but I thought this was pretty with one!

This is after a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

One coat of CANVAS Beyond the Wall swatched. 

Stamped using an image from FUN 5 using a couple different blue stamping polishes; Mundo de Unas 30 (thumb, middle and pinky) and 3 (index and ring).  The stamping covered a bit more of the base than I wanted but still pretty!

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

I have a funny story to share about these nails!  After I finished my nails, I headed to bed (as I do my nails very late at night 99.9% of the time).  I had brushed my teeth, used the loo, set the phone alarm, turned out the light and was getting comfy in bed, fluffing the pillow, getting the blankets just so.  As I'm settling in, I noticed blue flashes here and there in the dark; it was kinda of freaking me out as I couldn't figure out what these blue flashes were.  I looked outside (as there is a window above the headboard) to see if there are lights flashing outside or lighting......nothing.  I couldn't figure what it was until my hands quit moving and there glowing in the dark was my nails...and I mean, 10 nails a-glowwww-ing!  CANVAS Beyond the Wall is glow in the dark!  And this isn't your typical "have to put your nails in the light" to charge glow.  I did no charging of the polish at all other than the standard take-a-few-pix-once-done-under-the-lighting as I didn't even know that the polish was glow in the dark (I'm being honest here!  I didn't know to take pix but will share another time).  The blue glow was very bright and lasted quite some time.  Added bonus to a really pretty that you know, it won't freak you out like it did me!

CANVAS lacquer is available via their etsy shop here.

Thanks for looking!
