Before the unveiling of my Christmas mani, Pa goodness!

I haven't gotten a good picture of my Christmas manicure yet (bad sunlight) so to tide you over, I have some Pa for you.

I love Pa nail polish. For those of you who don't know, it is a line of Japanese polish made by company Dear Laura that is, well, awesome!! They aren't just polish either, check out their website Dear Laura. It's in English!

I started with Pa Lame Grande AA48, a nice, warm gold polish. I'm not sure why they call this one Lame Grande, or big glitter, since this is actually a foil and not glitter..but it's pretty just the same :)

After that dried I topped it off with Pa Rock Top Nail Z04, a bright pink shatter (damn you Dear Laura/Pa, can't you name your colors? That would make them so much easier to identify with!)

I LOVED this combo, pink on gold. I had this planned for a few months, but hadn't gotten around to it until recently. Not very fall/winter, but who cares? I needed something bright and cheerful, and this certainly did the trick.

Jaci's Xmas present mani

So, I do have a Xmas manicure all ready to snap for you (and my first 3D mani at that!) but first, a teaser :)
My friend Jaci texted me today with this picture. She said this is the first time she did a detailed manicure, and I have to say I think she did a pretty damn good job!

I don't know all of the color details yet (c'mon grrlfriend, follow us and give us the deets!) but I do know the red is Chanel Fire, and I think the red glitter is Homei Quick Dry Your Person of Destiny.

What do you think of her manicure?
