I have some cool news from Sephora on this lovely Friday morning.... As part of the fall 2012 Sephora + PANTONE Universe collection, they're releasing six sparkly, duochrome, gem-toned nail polishes! I'm pretty excited for these. Hopefully they're as cool in real life as they look in the pictures!
The extraordinary partnership between Sephora, the leading beauty specialty retailer, and Pantone, the global color authority, continues with the launch of SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE™ Alchemy of Color Collection for fall 2012.
“Like a breath of brisk autumn air, the Alchemy of Color Collection for fall 2012 is inspired by the uplifting energy- created as we transition into the fall season,” noted Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.
“Focusing on a powerful palette, complete with rich jewel tones, this collection welcomes a new season filled with the magic of color.”
Celebrating the fall season, this collection showcases a kaleidoscope of precious hues with innovative textures and futuristic finishes that bring color to life.
Colors from this collection have been adapted from the PANTONE VIEW Colour Planner Autumn/Winter 2012/2013, with shade names inspired by ancient lore, alluding to the mystic energy that surrounds this collection.
Glowing tones emulate precious prisms and gemstones, appearing lavishly luminous. Sleek packaging has been designed to convey a sense of radiance and the transparency of a prism.
“This collection offers everyone endless ways to indulge in rich color. Featuring a powerful combination of reds, oranges and purples, it is the perfect way to transition into fall colors.” says Sephora PRO lead Jill Powell.
