If you’re into nail art and design but are always undecided about nail polish colours or design, why not try designs based on Pantone’s colour of the year?

What is Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2017?

Pantone Colour Institute is an organisation that provides colour-related advice. For instance, the institution provides advice for companies’ brands, colour development. Also, they decide on colour of the year.

To determine the colour of the year, the Pantone Colour Institute surveys trends and social media for popular colours. The institute opts for colours that represent freshness but also bear relation to global issues.  This year, Pantone has chosen Greenery as its colour of the year. Greenery promotes social awareness about climate change and global warming.
