Today I have something for you from the new brand Charming Tale which is an indie brand run by Leanne from Lea’s Nails and its launching over at charmingtale.co.uk today at 7pm GMT, the 22nd. I have for you one of the six nail polishes being released Merryweather and her amazing liquid latex Practical Magic. I was sent these products to swatch and review and I am giving you my honest opinion 🙂
Merryweather is a gorgeous royal blue creme polish that really does remind me of the fairy from Sleeping Beauty. It applies beautifully in 2 smooth coats to an opaque finish with a great shine. There is no off putting smell which is an added bonus and it dries really quickly too! Don’t mind the flaw on my ing finger that’s just an annoying ridge.
Practical Magic Liquid Latex is another great item. I used it here for sponge glitter application and it worked amazingly. The product has a soft applicator similar to lipgloss and goes on as pink and glittery 🙂 It doesn’t smell terrible either like some liquid latexes out there. Once it dries, which takes about 3-5 minutes (try not to apply it too thickly, even a thing layer works well), it turns clear and you can really see the glitters then. I then sponged on my glitter and peeled of Practical Magic with some tweezers and wah-la it all came off in one go and my fingers were glitter free!
I don’t know exact prices for these products (at time of writing) but I know for a fact that the maximum price for a 10ml bottle is £6.65 and the maximum for a 5ml bottle is £3.50, so they’re reasonably priced for an indie brand 🙂 I definitely recommend you check out this brand. I talk to Leanne on instagram a lot and you are 100% getting the best with her company and her products 🙂
