CANVAS lacquer Nuit Blanche All Nighter

I have another mani featuring a polish sent for review from CANVAS lacquer; this time it's the gorgeous CANVAS lacquer Nuit Blanche All Nighter**!

Started with a base of two coats of CANVAS lacquer Nuit Blanche All Nighter with an accent of two coats of Orly Cashmere Cardigan; topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top. 

CANVAS lacquer Nuit Blanche All Nighter is a "purple jelly packed with small white hex, silver, holographic microglitter and turquoise hexes: as described on their shop....unfortunately, some of the larger turquoise hex glitters did curl; I contacted the ladies at CANVAS lacquer to let them know; they have decided to remove this version from their store, so it will no longer be available. Anyone who has purchased a bottle already are asked to contact them directly as they will be be offering a discount on the next purchase.  You can read their blog post about it here.  

Personally, I had no issue with this minor issue; it wasn't noticeable.  Like a lot of glitters, this was a top coat eater; before stamping, I only did one topcoat as I knew I'd be adding another layer after stamping.  If you were going to wear this alone, I would suggest a coat of Gelous followed by another coat of top coat for a smooth as glass finish; or your normal way for addressing top coat eaters.  That's what I do but I do know others use other methods.  But my finished nails two days later are smooth, no issue, even with the curl. 

Like I said, I knew I'd be adding some stamping; after searching through my plate stash for what seemed like hours and hours (this was the night I tweeted I was up til 1:30 am because I spent so long searching for the perfect image to use!), I decided upon an image from DRK A which would allow the base to shine through, then stamped using Mundo de Unas 16 that I picked purposely to match the accent polish and I think it's pretty close!   

Added a gold gem to the accent nail (I really need to watch a tutorial on adding these for some tips!) and top coated again to finish.

CANVAS lacquer polishes are available via their Etsy shop here; there is a 10% discount until December 31st using the code HOLICAN10.  Anyone who is local to the GTA can purchase CANVAS lacquer products by stopping by a local pop up event on December 6th from 11 am to 6 pm at 224 Wallace Avenue, Unit 104 in Toronto.  Please check out You Can Keep It! Holiday Pop Up for more information!  

Thanks for looking!

  1. This is such a beautiful mani! I'm so sad that one will be d/c, but I'm confident that they will be able to reformulate it and it will be just as lovely. It really is a gorgeous polish despite the curling glitter!

  2. That stamping is just perfect, love it!!
