Pantone's 2016 Colors of the Year
Serenity + Rose Quartz Ombre Manicure
Each year, Pantone, the worldwide standard for color communication and inspiration since 1963, reveals a color of the year. Their selection heavily influences the beauty, fashion and home decor industries. For 2016 Pantone excited the world by announcing 2 colors for 2016's trends: Rose Quartz & Serenity. In celebration of the lovely colors I did my own DIY ombre manicure and rounded up my favorite Pantone color inspired polishes.

"Joined together Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as soothing sense of order and peace." -Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director; Pantone Color Institute

In addition to my manicure I've been inspired to select this color combination as my April Instagram feed color. If you're not familiar with my IG account, @the.abstract.life, I have a color of the month project for 2016. #TALcolorproject has so far exhibited red, hot pinks, and now rose quartz and serenity. Check out my feed and let me know your thoughts. Do you have an Instagram account? If so, do you have a theme for your feed or put thought into making everything cohesive?
