Paint All The Nails Presents Pantone Color Of The Year

Hi everyone! Today I have a very special post to share. I have teamed up with some amazingly talented bloggers to bring you Pantone Color of the Year nail art! Everyone participating is part of a small tight knit Facebook group called Paint All The Nails. A themed link-up helps to increase engagement on our blogs so we figured Pantone colors was the perfect idea for January since the Pantone Color of the Year was recently announced. It’s my first time participating in the link-up so I’m beyond excited. I love nail art and I don’t do it often enough so this was the perfect excuse 🙂 Let’s take a look at all of the amazing designs we came up with this month!

Pantone chose two colors for their 2016 Color of the Year. It’s the first time they pick two colors instead of one. The two lovely shades are Serenity and Rose Quartz. I did two posts on the new colors a few weeks ago where I showed you a few examples of each color. You can check out Serenity here and Rose Quartz here. For this post I chose Spring Showers by L’Oréal for the Serenity shade and Pink of Me by China Glaze for the Rose Quartz shade.

Our themed link-up was to use the Pantone Colors of the Year however we wanted in a nail art design. This is what I came up with:

It’s a single chevron nail art design. I LOVE chevron print so I had to incorporate it into this theme! It was really easy to create these. Here’s how I did it.

 

  1. I started out by painting my pointer and middle fingers using Pink of Me by China Glaze. I then painted my ring and pinky fingers using Spring Showers by L’Oréal. Paint All The Nails presents Pantone Color of the Year | Nailpolishpursuit.com
  2. Then I applied fast drying top coat and waited 15 minutes for it to fully dry. Once completely dry, I applied these single chevron nail vinyls from NailVinyls.com to my middle and ring fingers.Paint All The Nails presents Pantone Color of the Year | Nailpolishpursuit.com
  3. Once those nail vinyls are in place I use the opposite color to paint over each nail. So for my middle finger I used Spring Showers to paint it over and for my ring finger I used Pink of Me to paint it over the vinyls. Then while the polish is still wet, I removed each vinyl one by one revealing the design.
  4. Once I removed all of my nail vinyls I waited about 5 minutes and then applied fast drying top coat to make sure I didn’t smear the design.

And that’s it! Simple as can be right?
