PA Nail Color: A98

I was recently surprised with two bottles of pa nail polish in the mail from a friend. It’s a japanese brand of polish that come in cute, fun little bottles. It’s always exciting to give a new brand a chance, especially one that isn’t readily available in the states!

Jelly, bubble gum pink

A98 is a fun, cool toned jelly pink. It’s very barbie and girly but since it’s a jelly, it’s not as bright, dense, and intense as a pink creme version would be. In the bottle it appears brighter, and I was a little worried it was going to be too much, but with the jelly finish it’s really wearable. Almost softer in a way. I enjoyed looking at my nails with this manicure, even though it’s not a very “me” or unusual color I really like it. It’s a nice change of pace for me.

The application and formula were good. I had no issues. I used three coats for full coverage, like pretty much all jellies need. I also had decent wear and drying time.

Where to Buy: Online Retailers / $ 4 – $ 5

Have you tried any PA Nail Collective polishes? Have you tried many polishes from other countries? What are your favorite foreign brands of polish?

    Well, since every remotely interesting polish brand is either American or British(with a few notable exceptions) I’d say all brands are foreign to me. =) Swedish brands are followers, not innovators in this field.

    A few of my favourites are Zoya, Nubar and butter London. Models Own is also hot on the list!

    I’m still a little wary of pink-in training though!-so wouldn’t wear such a vivid shade as yours yet but I do like the bottle design and clean typography!

  2. Some of my favorite “foreign-to-me” brands, being in the US, are Nails Inc. (UK) Koh (Dutch) and Kiko (Italian)
