How cool is that? Agata says: December 7th, 2012 at 3:12 pm 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… Reply bin du says: December 7th, 2012 at 3:44 pm 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 Reply Leah @ Mile High Beauty Blog says: December 7th, 2012 at 3:56 pm I like Emerald better than the orange they had last year. Orange is NOT my color.

I don’t wear emerald makeup really though, but green clothes look awesome with my red hair. Reply Lynn says: December 7th, 2012 at 7:31 pm Been wearing emerald clothes so much in 2012. Ha.

I instantly went out and purchased green tights after I heard this was the colour of the year. Reply Jennifer says: December 8th, 2012 at 5:08 am I love Green clothing but not on nails or face… wasn’t a fan of the orange of last year either.

More tropical than emerald which is usually in the jewel tones. All that being said, it is a pretty color for summer nails. Reply Kayleigh says: December 12th, 2012 at 3:09 pm 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. Reply Leila says: December 8th, 2012 at 11:17 am 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. Reply Sophie says: December 8th, 2012 at 12:09 pm 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. Reply Hannah says: December 8th, 2012 at 1:48 pm 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! Reply Nina says: December 8th, 2012 at 6:38 pm I love emerald green!! I’m so excited 🙂 Reply Lana says: December 9th, 2012 at 11:45 am If there’s something out there called a colorgasm, I think I just had one ^^.

Reply Kayleigh says: December 12th, 2012 at 3:06 pm 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. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
