I’ve got some new Pa swatches today 🙂 As I said in the video, I always have to go pick up more whenever I go to San Jose or San Francisco. I love this brand and they’ve yet to let me down with their colors and their finishes.
The colors I got this time around are very summery and ocean-y. It wasn’t supposed to be like this but hey, I guess I just had summer on the mind.
Pa Polishes can be purchased at the Japanese market in San Jose (well I think it’s officially in Saratoga) and in San Francisco, in Japan Town, next to the crepe stand that puts cereal in their crepes. On the side of the mall with the Sanrio store lol. I don’t know what the store is called, but it’s an uber girly, accessory store. It’s next to the fake Samurai sword store.
These polishes retail between $4.99 and $5.99, and you can actually find them online in some places, but I don’t know exactly where.
Swatches are after the jump!
This is a nice turquoise/aqua creme along the vein of Mac’s Salad Dressed and Ocean Dip. It’s always a good color to have and is one of my favorite tones. It’s completely opaque in 2 coats and dries kind of shiny.
This is a light seafoam color and is very sheer. The prettiest part has to be the delicate silver shimmer laced throughout it. It never really get’s to a pure opaque color but does leave a wonderfully ocean water like seafoam tint to the nail. It’d be amazing to layer with.
Bright blue creme-jelly. In the bottle it looks more cobalt but it photographs and swatches to just a very pure crayola blue color. It’s a great primary color and I’ve been looking for a polish like this. It doesn’t come close at all to OPI’s Dating A Royal. It’s pretty much opaque at 3 coats.
The polishes named “AA…” are all their “effect” polishes. I think the official name is “Premiere Grande Lame” but in essence, their flakies, glitters etc are all AA polishes. At least their newer ones are. AA53 is a periwinkle foil. They had a whole new line of foils, with your standard colors but I had never seen a periwinkle one before so I had to pick it up. It’s opaque in 2 coats and is just lovely 🙂
