Express Your Nails with Spring ’14 Fashion Colors!

I recently did a post on Fashion Colors for Fall/Winter ’13 in which I talked about how different fashion designers incorporated those lovely hues, but pages have been turned with the commencement of new year. So as the latest Pantone color report has been revealed, I thought of introducing the palette to you in a bit different way – by carefully selecting assorted brands of nail colors relative to Pantone Fashion Colors for Spring 2014.
Time to clear the decks and prepare your fingertips for taking a dip into the fun colors of springtide! Let’s have a look at the colors one by one:

  1. O2M Breathable Nail Enamel – 667 | INGLOT Cosmetics
    From the collection also known as “Halal” nail enamels which are permeable to water and oxygen, so can easily become favorites among the Muslim ladies. Close to Placid Blue, this calming blue echoes the solace of clear sky.
  2.  

  3. Agent Lavender | Chine Glaze
    Want to show your nails off in the romantic Violet Tulip? Then go for this soft bluish purple which reminds of freshly blossomed periwinkle flowers. Will look alluring on any complexion!
  4.  

  5. Mint Candy Apple | Essie
    Just like the nail polish label, Hemlock is the most yummy (and cutest) color of the bunch. This milky green looks like it is inspired from the visual blend of white and green seen in the ornamental flower clusters against their foliage during springtime.
  6.  

  7. DWS | Illamasqua
    This season there is a couple of neutral shades – one of them is Paloma which is similar to this cemented grey nail varnish. The power of this muted and modest shade is not to be underestimated! Because it can give your nails the elegance and sophistication they desire at times.
  8.  

  9. Sienna | Julep
    Another neutral shade of the season, Sand, is seen whispering through this dull and delicate gold nail varnish. Perfect if you want to go metallic in the spring!
  10.  

  11. Amchoor | NARS
    Freesia, the loudest of all, can be flaunted with this flashy vibrant yellow hue. If you are bold and enjoy the ‘limelight’ then go give your nails the splash of this yellow!
  12.  

  13. Are We There Yet? | OPI
    As friendly and easy-going as it looks, I had the most tough time looking for the nail color closest to Cayenne and this is what I found. This “perfect melon shade” is the RED of the season, which has coral tones spiced up.
  14.  

  15. Arizona | Zoya
    This one was the second hardest nail color to find! Cover your nails with some ‘juiciness’ of Celosia Orange with this fun tropical shade which is bright yet soft.
  16.  

  17. Molly Coddled | Butter LONDON
    And now, the ‘queen’ of 2014 color palette: Radiant Orchid! The most desirable of the purple – the sweetness of lilac combined with the magic of lavender – that “intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination”. You will fall in love with this.
  18.  

  19. Electric Blue | Dior
    Anyone can get bedazzled with this Dazzling Blue, specially if it’s adorned on your fingertips! For a nail color, this saturated strong blue is a must-have as it’s one-of-a-kind shade.

 

Hope you enjoyed this short kaleidoscopic roller-coaster =)
Pamper your nails and do get them to express most of these spring colors!

Pantone Fashion Colors Fall/Winter ’13

One of the things that happened this month was… I taking a shot at freelance writing, which comes with even greater responsibilities. So I got hired as a contributing writer for this Ahhmazing E-mag “Bridal Lounge“! It is your little black book specially if your wedding bells are going to ring soon!

Here is a little excerpt from my first piece that got published recently:

Fashion designers may be the trend-setters with their latest collection for every 
season, but ever wondered how do THEY know which color is hot to sweep through the catwalk and finally into your wardrobe? It’s a committee, coined as 
the “global color authority”, that sits together to discuss and carefully 
decide the dominant hues of the year: Pantone LLC. ....Read More....

LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry – Because Lips don’t Lie & they don’t have to!

I’m sure everyone loves lips that don’t lie.. but what if these lies are needed to cover up those ugly tell-tale signs of chapped lips?
The sad truth is that sometimes even good lipsticks and glosses are not enough to completely conceal those lips engraved with unappealing cracks and chaps. What those lips need is .. what they are deprived of – your Care and Attention.. AND a lip balm or a chap stick!
What I use and been using since my childhood is the century-old brand LABELLO which comes in MANY fun flavors and colors. I have used LABELLO in Classic Care, Soft Rosé, Pearly Shine, Fruity Shine (cherry & strawberry), Angel Star and recently I got myself LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry.
As you take the cap off, LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry greets you with an uplifting berrilicious scent and the tempting lovely swirls of pink and soft red colors this marbled stick is graced with. The sight and the scent AND the subtitle “Vitamin Shake” would instantly make anyone want to eat that stick – but PLEASE do NOT try that!

This Vitamin Shake turned out excellent in nourishing my lips with essential vitamins and enrich them with moisture so my lips feel soft, smooth and velvety. The delicious flavor makes me want to envelop my lips generously with this lip balm all the time and it also gives a subtle gloss to them which is a plus!
Give LABELLO Vitamin Shake| Cranberry & Raspberry a go and your lips will thank you for so much love and care .. and for never having to lie again!
