CANMAKE Colorful Nails Polish | Small Treats from Japan

Mom brought home these cute, dinky size nail polishes by CANMAKE in Japan.  The lot of them don’t fail in spreading that bit of holiday glitz and cheer and make great stocking fillers.  A few are sheer but build up well when layered but others like my sparkly blue jeans shade (yes, mine I say) are opaque from the first stroke.  They’re from what I know pretty inexpensive, convert from ¥378 each (Php converts to approx. half the amount). 


Mom got these from an IICOT outlet at a train station in Osaka but CANMAKE cosmetics is also available at Matsumoto Kiyoshi which is the Japanese equivalent of Watsons to us or Sasa and Bourjois in Hong Kong.  She said you’ll find Matsumoto Kiyoshi, that familiar blue and yellow store, probably like after every 50 to a 100 steps and at almost every urban corner in Japan.  More goodies from the land of the rising sun coming up, and soon, also fresh from Japan…the unveiling of my current holy grail foundation for 2012!

    Oh Canmake. I wish local drugstores would also bring in this brand and other Japanese skincare names. I get my stash from a guy friend in SG, but I imagine how awkward it is for him to shop for girlie girl stuff, especially those that come in kawaii packaging. 😀

    Can’t wait for the unveiling of your HG foundation!!! 🙂

  • I get lost perusing the aisles of Matsumoto Kiyoshi. I’ve never seen so much cosmetics in a drugstore in my life. I hate to admit but it is one of my favorite places in Japan 🙂

  • Oh how I want to get my hands on Canmake! So cute!
