    I’m not crazy about that color. It’s ok for nails but I never wear green eyeshadow….I’m not sure if it would go well with my blue eyes…

  2. bin du says:

    i’m not the biggest fan of the color anywhere except the nails (clothes included). Personally I feel that its too st. patrick’s day-esque

  3. I like Emerald better than the orange they had last year. Orange is NOT my color.

    I love using a dark emerald color around my eyes- always gets compliments. 💚

    Reminds me of Crayola “Sea-Foam Green” … which I loved 🙂

  6. Chelsea says:

    Emerald Green is my favorite color, so I’m kind of excited for Pantone’s prediction. I don’t wear emerald makeup really though, but green clothes look awesome with my red hair.

  7. Lynn says:

    Been wearing emerald clothes so much in 2012. Ha.

    I really like this colour and look forward to wearing it as an eyeshadow. I instantly went out and purchased green tights after I heard this was the colour of the year.

  10. Jennifer says:

    I love Green clothing but not on nails or face… wasn’t a fan of the orange of last year either.

    That is not what I imagine when one says “emerald”. It is a bit like seafoam green.
    More tropical than emerald which is usually in the jewel tones.
    All that being said, it is a pretty color for summer nails.

      I agree, I mentioned further down that I love emerald green and I’m excited for it to be chosen, but this is much more light and blue/turquoise toned than I picture emerald green. I think of it more like that gorgeous dress Keira Knightley wore in Atonement.

  12. Leila says:

    It’s a very pretty colour (love the Essie polish in summertime), but how is this emerald? It’s not even close. Closer to turquoise or seafoam green really. Just disappointed that a colour company can get this obvious fact wrong.

  13. Sophie says:

    Who is Pantone and why do they get to decide the ‘color of the year?’

    I personally don’t like these polishes; they seem more seafoam green than emerald. And I really don’t like emerald, either. Just my opinion.

  14. Hannah says:

    That’s not usually what I think of as emerald- but if you look at an actual emerald, it’s pretty close. My favorite color is a darker version of this, more of an ivy green, but I love this color too. Looking forward to the sephora+pantone color of the year collaboration with this color!

  15. Nina says:

    I love emerald green!! I’m so excited 🙂

  16. Lana says:

    If there’s something out there called a colorgasm, I think I just had one ^^.

    Oh awesome pick, Pantone. Green is probably my 2nd fave color, next only to gray!

  18. Kayleigh says:

    I’m way more excited about this than the tangerine shade chosen for 2012 – emerald green is GORGEOUS. Good choice! Can’t wait to see the stuff that comes out in honour of this pick in the next year.
