Hi everyone! Once the new color of the year from Pantone was announced, I knew I wanted to go through my stash and see which nail polishes would be considered part of that color scheme. I used this pyramid from Sephora to go through my stash:
Well, I didn’t realize how many polishes I owned in that color pyramid, so I’ve decided to break this down into a few epic posts! This first post is going to be more “on point” to the actual color, from light to dark. These aren’t mean to be exactly the same as the below picture, but a close approximation (whether light or dark).
Some of these swatches are from when I was first starting out, so please don’t laugh at them! (Okay, you can. I mean, I did. 😛 )
Sinful Colors Mauve:

Sinful Colors Purple Diamond (slightly more purple than photo):
Sinful Colors Tempest:
OPI Planks A Lot:
Part two of this epic post will include slightly darker nail polishes; part three will include the darkest polishes; part four will focus on the softer pink/purple; part five on brighter pink/purple; part six on darker pink/purple (leaning berry). Let me know in the comments if you would like me to compare colors side-by-side, and I’ll do a last post (part seven) on comparisons.
What do you think of these polishes? The one I like the best is Sinful Colors Tempest. 🙂 If you’re on pinterest, I’m pinning all the nail polishes onto a brand new board, so be sure to follow it right here. Tomorrow is another day of the 12 Days of Xmas Manis challenge & another set of Advent nails. Until then,
