Try out the “Radiant Orchid” trend with one of these nail polishes
As you fashionistas already know, every year “color authority” Pantone selects a shade that it believes will be hot—in home décor, fashion and beauty—for the coming year. For 2014, the company has announced that a pinky-plummy-lavender shade it calls Radiant Orchid will replace Emerald (so last year!) as the new “It” color. Not sure the color suits you? A mani-pedi is an easy, commitment-free way to dip your toe in the trend. The Pantone-branded “Radiant Orchid” cosmetics collection produced in collaboration with Sephora isn’t in stores yet, but we chose three already-available polishes that we think capture the trend.
