Radiant Orchid: How to Nail the Pantone Color of the Year

by Meghan Carlson | 2 Comments

Pantone definitely picked a winner for the 2014 Color of the Year. The more we explore the captivating possibilities of radiant orchid, the more we fall in love with this truly gorgeous shade. Feminine and modern, sophisticated yet fun, radiant orchid is an alluring enigma that somehow finds a way to be both unique and versatile. It brings an unexpected air of creativity, romance, and confidence to everything it touches:



A year-round beauty, radiant orchid is especially fresh for spring, pairing well with this season’s pastel pinks and purples, as well as other on-trend brights like cobalt blue and coral. From fashion and interiors to hair and beauty, there’s no limit to the ways you can show off this rich, joyful hue.

Speaking of which, our favorite way to wear radiant orchid is—you guessed it!—on our nails. Its magical harmony of fuchsia, purple, and pink makes for a universally flattering and fun shade on fingertips. Rae, our radiant orchid crème that debuted in March, is a pure, vibrant pop of Pantone goodness. And now we’re thrilled to introduce Kessie, our duochrome homage to the color of the year that turns up the shine and sparkle for a dazzling, dimensional finish.


Right now, for a limited time, you can get Kessie as a free gift with any $30 purchase, plus our fan favoritesFreedom Polymer Top Coat and Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum, by adding Shine All Year and using the promo code SHINE at checkout.

Paired with the high-gloss finish of Freedom and the health-promoting powers of Mighty, Kessie’s radiant orchid glamour truly shines, creating an eye-catching nail look that emanates health and happiness—and that’s a look that’s sure to stay in style all year long.
