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:
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
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....

Today I decided to do something different. Everybody has a wish list they would like to share with everyone, I’m going to share mine according to themes.. Today I’m doing on “Gold” theme. The objects shown below are not photographed by me, but have been collected from internet and assembled into one with bit of tweaking by me.
1- JACOB & CO. – LEOPARD PRINT DIAMOND HOOP EARRINGS
This pair features black and yellow diamonds mounted in 18K Gold. These hoops could make lady of any age look younger and chic, and even if worn alone would look stunning!
2- PACO RABANNE – LADY MILLION ABSOLUTELY GOLD ( Eau de Parfum for Women)
With top notes of blood orange and neroli, heart (notes) full of jasmine and orange blossom, and base notes of amber.. this scent sounds like a “bling bling” glamorous fragrance and pretty intense that should be used sparingly yet fervidly. Just the way I like to use and the way I like my scent to be!
3- PATCHI – CHOCOLATE GIFT BOX
Patchi is a designer chocolate brand and I have once had a luxury of devouring the whole box of their popular gold Lingots .. I’m not much of a chocolate person but I tell you those were divine! I love their packaging too and I wouldn’t mind if I’m gifted with one of these gorgeous boxes. 😉
4- BUCKYBALLS – NEOCUBE GOLD MAGNETIC BALLS TOY
This cube consists of 216 powerful Rare Earth magnetic balls which can be shaped, molded, snapped together in uncountable ways! Sounds fun and something nice to keep me busy and distracted from the monotony around.
5- DELAFÉE – GOLDEN HARMONY GOLD TEA
These are young green tea leaves and buds rolled into tea-balls that are tied with flowers (yellow lily, white jasmine and pink amaranth) covered with pure edible gold.. which when placed into a glass teapot, will open up the flowers and diffuse the gold into this fascinating hot beverage. Hmmm … it’s like I’m reading a fairy-tale packed with magic. Besides I LOVE green tea. Be it in any form. Specially these majestic gold tea-balls by Delafée, I definitely want to try once in my life time!
6- ROBERTO CAVALLI – SNAKE WITH FLOWERS BRASS CAGE CLUTCH
Wow! Just wow! Nothing less nothing more do I utter. Every single piece by Cavalli blows me away with awe and admiration. This clutch is one such piece of art that can make into a beautiful accessory for an evening party and bedazzle everyone around you. It can even be paired with another printed clutch as its lining inside.
