Spring Color Report: Nails Pt. 1

I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that the Pantone color of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid. Purple isn’t necessarily my go-to color, but I’m by no means against this hue. But what this means is you’re going to see it popping up all over the place in fashion, in florals, in interiors, basically it’s gonna be all over the place this year. So that of course means that it’s also included in the Spring 2014 Pantone Fashion Color Report.


So because my obsession with having my nails painted at all times is still at an all time high, I’ve scoured the interwebs for what I think are some of the best polishes for each of the colors on the report. A few cost a little more than I would personally spend on a polish (yes, I paint my own nails, I change them up far too often to pay to have them done), but they’re pretty, so they’re included. I’m going to break this up into two posts so stay tuned for part two and the last five colors in the repot. For now, I leave you with Radiant Orchid, Dazzling Blue, Paloma, Cayenne and Freesia. Who knew cayenne was spelled with an e after the y instead of an a? Not this girl. Anyway, let me know if you have any go-to polishes for spring that may not be on this report, I’d love to give ’em a try. Side note, if anyone can tell me how I get the job of naming nail polish colors, that’d be great, because that seems like basically the best job ever.
