A charming nail polish – Charmaine from M.U.S.


I hope you all enjoying the holidays. I sure am 🙂 Yesterday we opened the Christmas gifts (yes, we open our gifts on Christmas eve in Sweden) and I got a lot of good stuff such as a lovely bodylotion with the most delicate scent, a new robe and new slippers as my old ones were totally worn out. And as me being a lacquer nerd I was very pleased that Santa did bring me a polish as well (my oldest daughter bought it to me, thank you very much sweetie <3) and it’s a very beautiful polish in a lovely color as I am a sucker for turquoise and teal …


Turquoise sparkles in the tree – Charmaine by Make Up Store

“Charmaine” from Make Up Store is a sparkling turquoise with lots of micro sparkles, almost a holo. Make Up Store them selves describes it as “a three dimensional nail polish” and I say it’s absolute gorgeous! Perfect turquoise that sparkles when ever light hits the nail surface. It’s almost a OCW, the formula is easy to work with a no holo sickness what so ever.

The weather has been lovely today, crisp cold air and sunshine. I hope it stays that way and maybe we can hope for snow!? In the meantime I sit here thinking of my next WNAC-manicure … I’ll show you tomorrow!

Bye bye for now!
