Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

Pantone has announced it's pick for Color Of the Year for 2014: Radiant Orchid. Be prepared to see tons of purples in cosmetics, fashion, and home goods. (Congrats Amanda. it's almost your perfect year.)


The first polish color that came to mind was Rimmel London Wild Orchid.  It is a great match for this color, and it might be going on clearance at a CVS near you. I hope that Rimmel doesn't abandon the color, because I really do love it.

And because I'm fresh off the Seven Day DIY Gel-ish challenge, I couldn't just wear one color. I decided to attempt a water first in a very long time. It didn't turn out half bad.

Colors Used
Rimmel Wild Orchid
OCC Strumpet
Maybelline Color Show Amethyst Ablaze


  1. I don't know what it is about this water marble, but I really love it! Not usually a big fan of them, but this just looks stunning!

    1. thanks! I'm not usually a fan of purples, but I really like how this turned out too!

  2. This is a gorgeous marble, but UGH why did pantone have to pick THEE UGLIEST color possible on earth for us to have to look at for a whole year. That color is so fugly I just can't even

    1. so many people hate this color! I actually kinda like youngest is obsessed with purple, so this is definitely her year.

  3. This is lovely! I do like both watermarbles and purple - so this is right up my street!
