New Year New Color: Pantone Color of the Year

I hope everyone's 2016 is off to a wonderful start! For my first nail post of the new year I have a design inspired by the Pantone Color of the Year 2016: Serenity and Rose Quartz. Yes, Pantone couldn't decide on one color so they chose two....double the fun! Both colors are beautiful and so much more exciting than the Benjamin Moore Color of the Year and the Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year (which were both variations of white). Here are my Serenity/Rose Quartz combo nails:
Over 350 bottles of polish and I still don't think I matched the exact colors. Oh bother. Here are the real Pantone Color of the Year 2016 swatches:


  1. lovely and sweet look. it that accent nail a water marble? i would have personally preferred a more..pinkish pink, lol, but this mani looks so nice and classy on you, love the length and shape of your nails. did you notice i tagged you a couple of posts back in my blog? ;) xx

    1. Thank you for your sweet comments Ghila! Yes, the accent nail is water marble. I should do more water marbling because I really like the look at the end. And absolutely I saw your post and tag! I'm working on it. :)

  2. I love the serenity color :) yeah I feel that way a lot too... I have tons of polish but somehow I never have the right shade #nailbloggerproblems haha
