Pantone Inspired Nails – 2016 Colour’s of the Year – Rose Quartz & Serenity

image

I am definately ready for Spring already, I’m dying to wear some brighter shades and it’s far to grey outside currently. I like to switch things around this time of year to brighten up these dull January days. So it’s out with the old and in with the new, to freshen up the polish colour palette. Pantone has now introduced it’s new colours of the year for 2016, the beautiful duo of Rose Quartz and Serenity. My new polish shade inspiration, Pantone Inspired Nails – Rose Quartz & Serenity, perfect to add into your stash!

Now we are into 2016, it’s time to say goodbye to Marsala, the previous Pantone Colour of the Year. And what a colour! I can honestly say I did wear the shade a tonne. But it’s time for a new chapter of colour.

 

Pantone Inspired Nails - Rose Quartz & Serenity

 

Serenity is a cool toned light blue and Rose Quartz is a warm toned light pink. These shades can be used separately or together, such a lovely combo of complimentary shades!

“Joined together Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate and inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.” – Leatrice Eiseman Executive Director, Pantone Colour Institute

I feel these shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity, challenge the traditional perceptions of colour association. The 2016 palette, a unisex affair, creates a gender blur impacting all areas of design and impending social change.

These milky pastels hues have been floating around the last few seasons in the catwalks and have now been brought to the forefront with this years choices of Colours of the Year. You may have embraced these colours, in the shades in your own polish stash!
