PA: A72

I was out of town for the weekend last week, so I apologize for the lack of posting! I hope you all are doing well and enjoying the summer weather that is finally here.

This is the second polish that a friend was sweet enough to bring me back from Japan. As you all are well aware of, I love everything blue. And this dreamy turquoise had me from the jump.

Creamy, dreamy turquoise

This color isn’t the most unique and many of us that collection polish have numerous variations of it, but I think many of us are drawn to it. It’s beautiful. Though this creme polish leans a touch more green (to me and on my skintone), it has a nice balance of blue and green. It’s a perfect summer color and I have loved admiring this color on my nails.

Easy, smooth application

This polish has a super shiny finish, since it’s a half creme half jelly hybrid. The formula on it was great; super easy and quick to apply. It also dried very quickly. What I’ve been most surprised with regarding this polish, is how well it has worn on me. Polishes usually chip within the first day on me, but I’ve had minimal tipwear after 3 days. Always a welcomed surprise!

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

Is turquoise one of your go to nail colors for summer? Or like me, do you like to wear it year round? Summer for me means turquoise and coral!

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.

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