A Very Pantone #MonthlyMani

January 20, 2015

Pantone’s Color of the Year may be “Marsala,” but I’m featuring my favorites from their spring 2015 fashion forecast for January #MonthlyMani!

There were so many beautiful colors to choose from thanks to Pantone’s Spring 2015 fashion trend report, but a few stood out to me as clear favorites, including: strawberry ice, lucite green, classic blue and aquamarine.

I decided to include all of my favorites in my manicure, using masking tape to create a diagonal line across each nail.  I used “Central Park” by NYC as my strawberry ice base, and then painted triangles of “Tudor City Teal” by NYC, “Endless Blue” by Sinful Colors and an unnamed aquamarine shade by Prisma for lucite green, classic blue and aquamarine.  I also added a pop of silver glitter for some added fun and contrast!

I love the nearly nude pink shade contrasted with the pretty blues, green and silver!  With all of the different colors, it was hard to photograph and get it to look accurate, but I think you get the general idea.  (Why is it SO hard to photograph nails??)

Either way, I love all of the colors, and I am suddenly obsessed with this color palette!  I want to feature these colors in everything I make or wear for the rest of year (although, I promise to use some of the other Pantone colors as well, even Marsala).  ;)

Which color is your favorite??

      Thanks, Beth!! I don’t often have time for painting my nails (and my nails almost always get trashed pretty quickly), but I love that #MonthlyMani’s force me to have pretty nails at least once a month haha! ;)

      Why thank you!! This was only my second time using tape, but I think it came it much better than my first attempt! ;)

      Thank you!! I’ve used tape before but it was regular scotch tape, but this time I used making tape and it worked WAY better! :)
      I can’t wait to see what you come up with next month!! ;)
