REVIEW/SWATCHES | CANVAS LACQUER

Friday, March 25, 2016

A few weeks back I paid Canvas Lacquer a visit at a local flea market event, which featured a bunch of talented local indie artisans. I had never purchased from them before and ended up leaving with 8 beautiful polishes. A little background info on them: Lan & Alana are the owners/creators of Canvas Lacquer and everything is hand mixed and distributed from Toronto, On - Canada. They make each color in smaller batches which makes everything exclusive, because once they sell out of a shade it doesn't return. If you love a shade I highly suggest getting a backup! I have a TON of gorgeous swatches to share and make sure to read till the end too hear out my full opinion on this brand!

P.S - I took these photo's prior to my blog name change and in all honesty I was too lazy to re-do the watermark lol

I've had time to play with these shades and created a nail art look which can be found down below

These polishes are of quality, have a great wear time and have a fantastic dry time! The price point is a bit on the higher side at $15 a bottle, but with price comes quality. I feel the quality is on par with the price tag and will continue supporting this brand! 

Have you tried this brand before? If so, I would love to hear thoughts and opinions! Out of this post which shade is your favorite?
