CANVAS Lacquer Simpsons Forever Collection {A Selection} Swatches & Review


CANVAS Lacquer Violet Uprising

Hello readers,
The Simpsons is one of my favorite TV shows of all times, and the makers of CANVAS lacquer love it just as much as I do. Get ready to geek out with me about the Simpsons moments that inspired these Simpsons Forever polishes.

Kamp Krusty

CANVAS Lacquer Simpsons

Kamp Krusty is Krusty The Clown's summer camp that turned out to be miserable place where campers made Krusty branded merchandise. Eventually the campers became so desperate that Bart leads a rebellion to overthrow the camp staff and take control. Their demand? To see the clown.

Inspired by the shade of Krusty's hair or perhaps the colour of Big Snake Lake, Kamp Krusty is a rich turquoise blue crelly with a subtle shimmer. The formula was easy to work with though a bit sheer. I used three coats here for full coverage. This dries shiny on its own but I added top coat out of habit. Photos show three coats of Kamp Krusty with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Blinky The Fish

CANVAS Lacquer Simpsons

Blinky The Fish is a fish that was caught in Springfield's local waters. Blinky has a three eyes, a mutation caused by waste from the nearby nuclear power plant. Mr. Burns tries to deny that his power plant is to blame and this is just the next evolutionary step for the blinky fish species.

Blinky The Fish is a medium orange-leaning coral crelly with a subtle gold shimmer. The formula was easy to apply though a tad sheer. I was able to get 95% coverage in three coats. In most lighting it appears opaque but in very bright lighting my nail lines show through a teeny bit. This one dries shiny on its own if you want to skip top coat. Photos show three coats of Blinky The Fish with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Borrow A Feeling

CANVAS Lacquer Simpsons

In an attempt to win back his ex-wife's affections, Kirk Van Houten sings her his original composition, Can I Borrow A Feeling?

Can I borrow a feelin'?
Could you lend me a jar of love?
Hurtin' hearts need some healin',
Take my hand with your glove of love.

Borrow A Feeling features a purple (cold) to blue (warm) shifting thermal base with a little bit of holo shimmer and a sprinkling of red to gold aurora pigment. The formula was excellent. Two coats was enough for full coverage in the cold state. I recommend a third for the warm state if you have distinct nail lines like me. This dries to a satin finish so glossy top coat is recommended if you want a shiny finish. Photos show three coats of Borrow A Feeling with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Don't You Hate Pants?

CANVAS Lacquer Simpsons

When his retirement announcement including a rant about modern comics is taken as a joke, Krusty decides to pursue low-key stand up comedy with a tell it as it is anti-corporate America flavour. Having previously encouraged people to burn their money, Homer tries to lead him in the direction of also encouraging people to burn their pants because 'don't you hate pants?!'.

Don't You Hate Pants? is a pale shimmery lavender-leaning pink with holo shimmer and a pale turquoise sheen. The formula was easy to work with taking two coats for full coverage. There are some minor brushstrokes in the finish it you wear it alone, but I found that top coat pretty much erased them for me. Photos show two coats of Don't You Hate Pants? with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Conclusion

My personal favorite of the bunch is Borrow A Feeling. I just love the flecked shimmer thermal combination. Don't You Hate Pants? also ended up appealing to me a lot more than I thought it would since pinks aren't usually my thing. Don't You Hate Pants is available in the CANVAS lacquer etsy shop now, and the others will be released soon. You can find CANVAS lacquer on


Happy polishing,

Michelle
