This is one of the nail polish shades I knew I definitely wanted to try before going to Essence Manchester Launch event. Last year they brought out a shade called ‘The Green and the Grunge’, an dark emerald green to coincide with Pantone’s Colour of the Year. I’m so glad they decided to do it again this year, I think it’s a great idea as a lot of people have become more interested over the years with the Colour of the Year. This year’s shade is Radiant Orchid, a beautiful lilac purple shade. Frillseeker did a great article at the beginning of the year with make up products in that shade, check it out here. I mentioned Purple Sugar in my launch event post so I just had to do a post showing it off!
I think it’s such a pretty shade, I’m a sucker for shades I call ‘ice cream shades’ (basically pastels like mint green and candy floss pink), as well as a sucker for purple polishes. I may have got this for free at the event but even if I didn’t, it was on my shopping list for when I’m next back in Ireland!
What’s your favourite shade of purple? Or what colour would you love to see as The Colour of the Year? Comment below!
