#MonthlyMani: Pantone Style!

So when this month’s Monthly Mani theme was to be based on Pantone’s Fashion Color Report, I was in love. As a graphic designer, I have to deal with Pantone colors on a regular basis, and they are near and dear to my heart. Except Reflex Blue. That one can go away.

For this mani I chose 3 colors from the color report (below): Aquamarine, Classic Blue, and Toasted Almond. You know I love nude nails so I made my base coat my nude polish and then added some painterly swatches of the blues on top. I liked the way it turned out, especially if you don’t look too close… (which is the rule I have with all of my nail art!)
