Pantone ultra violet as I am sure you have heard by now, is the colour of the year for 2018? I am so pleased and almost excited about the endless possibility this gorgeous colour will bring to my wardrobe and fingernails in 2018.
Pantone Ultra Violet
On my walls, no thank you. On my back, yes please. A huge thank you in advance to Pantone for making me feel trendy this year. What about the the saying that only ‘old ladies wear purple’ In my opinion another myth to be banished forever to the back of the closet!
“…A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future…”
I have been researching the stores for you and found plenty of example as to how purple can be added to your wardrobe next year. Let’s start with Ultra Violet in Beauty Products…
