January 2016


The PANTONE® Color of the Year 2016 has been announced, or should we say colors? For the first time ever, the global color authority has selected two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity – as must-haves pigments for the year ahead. When paired, the soft pink and muted blue “embody a mind-set of tranquility and inner peace,” according to PANTONE®’s press release. Celebrate the colors of the year with lush nail and hair products from consumer favorites China Glaze®, EverGlaze®, Salon Perfect®, and BSweet™.

A warm embracing rose tone, Rose Quartz “is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.” Wrap your nails in this gentle pink shade with nail polishes including:

  • China Glaze® Let’s Chalk About It* (*new for Spring 2016; available January at Ulta and; $7.50)
  • EverGlaze® Lil’ Bow-tique (available at Sally Beauty and; $8.99)
  • Salon Perfect® Put A Ring On It (available exclusively at Walmart; $3.98
