pa Perfectly Lovely Easter Nails
By Melanie Parker
I've discovered a new nail polish brand. It's from a Japanese company called pa. Spring was in the air, so I had to order some pastel Easter egg colored polishes. I found a site called orangelighthouse.com that sold the pa polishes, a bargain at only $4.40 a piece for such unique colors. The bottles are wee (the label is in Japanese and I don't see a unit of measure on it for the actual size), so if you adore a color, you'll want to get two. The confirmation and shipping came quickly, so I will be placing more orders in the future.
The pa slogan is so charming, "for cutie girls who want to become lovely." Yes, I want to become lovely. I need to order many polishes. Luckily, since they are geared toward girls, they have lots of fun colors. The names are not so lovely, they are just letters and numbers. But that's where the pictures some in handy
My favorite polish in the line is A38. It's the perfect Tiffany & Co. blue with sparse multi-colored glitter that looks like diamond dust. It's so fun, and many people have commented on my lovely little robin's eggs nails since I started wearing it. I also think it would be a great color for a bride to wear on her toes as her "something blue."
A86 is a lovely mint green shimmer. It dries stroke-free and has a shimmery pearl finish that looks especially good on cool-toned skin tones. The only other mint green polish I can recall is Essie Classical, but it has a gold shimmer to it
Spring time always reminds me of kelly green, as the grass becomes lush and bright from the rain in the Midwest. I was pleased that pa offered a range of green cremes. A32 is a dark green creme that offers the vampiness of Nars Zulu at a fraction of the price. A96 is a perfect leaf green. It looks like a little kelly green patent leather clutch I like to carry in the Spring. I also think it will look cute as a pedicure with white sandals. So fresh and fun, just like a cutie girl who wants to become lovely!
