It's ok. A bit like "burning the candle at both ends"

I have not heard it in a while, but I think it is still acceptable to use this phrase.

Yes, it's a poetic way to say "stay up late at night".

The phrase "burning the midnight oil" is still in use. When someone works many more hours than usual to finish a task, they are said to be "burning the midnight oil".
