I'm A Baby by CANVAS lacquer

I have another polish from the CANVAS lacquer Broad City collection to share; this is I'm A Baby by CANVAS lacquer**!

Started with a base of two coats of I'm A Baby by CANVAS lacquer, no top coat.

I'm A Baby by CANVAS lacquer is a gorgeous heather purple holo with gold micro flecks; this goes so well with my fall (and winter) wardrobe, that I've wore it several times already.  

The next night, my daughter came home and said this polish is so pretty but especially in the sun; it sparkles so much! 

I didn't want to cover the polish very much so stamped using an image from Apipila Super Placa B using Funky Fingers Gesso, which left lots of space for the polish to shine through.

I loved how this turned out but wanted a bit more zip to it; wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it so added a few iridescent stones.  

But didn't go for that look; they were just placed on to see if I liked the look of them.  I couldn't decide what to do so just top coated to finish using Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC.  

After I finished, I thought that this polish would look great stamped with silver.  The next day, using the clear jelly stamper, double stamped using Sally Hansen Celeb City using the same image.  If this doesn't convince every stamper to go order a clear stamper, I don't know what will!  So easy to line up exactly where you want the stamping to go; I was easily able to line up the silver stamping in the voids in perfect alignment!  I never would have been able to do this with the non clear kind.  It didn't show up that well unless the lighting conditions was dim; a better choice might have been a silver chrome...but there's always next time.

My teenaged daughter seen me putting it on the night I was putting this mani on, and she decided it was her next mani too....that's why the first initial polishes have the CANVAS lacquer bottle but no more....because she took off with the bottle to put it on!

I'm a Baby by CANVAS lacquer is available via their Etsy shop here; they offer international shipping!
