ellagee 2016 Pantone Duo; Blue Bella & A Breath Of Pink

Good morning lovelies!  Last month the new Pantone color was revealed.  But it wasn't just 1 color this year, it was 2, yay!  Actually I have heard a lot of grumbling about the colors selected; Rose Quartz and Serenity.  Truthfully I am not a huge fan of their selections either, but I think both shades are perfect for the Spring and together they make for great nail art!  ellagee took that inspiration and came up with 2 great crellies, full of soft and subtle with matching shimmer.   Blue Bella and A Breath Of Pink will both be available on Saturday 1/23 at 3pm Central.  They will be $10.50 USD each.   So let's delve into the post and we can take a look at both colors and some easy nail art I did with them together.

Up first I have A Breath Of Pink, a pastel and soft rosy pink crelly with a very subtle pink shimmer.  My pictures do show the shimmer just a little, but it's much more prominent in real life.  Trust me, it's very pretty.  The subtleness makes it very demure but flirty!  The cruelly formula was aces!  Creamy and full coverage.  A Breath Of Pink built up perfectly with no visible nail line in 3 coats.  I used a layer of ellagee Fast Dry Topcoat on top.

Bella Blue is a pastel periwinkle blue crelly with a sprinkling of blue shimmer.  Again, the shimmer is almost unnoticeable in my pictures but in real life you can see just how beautiful it is.  I've always  been a fan of the monotone play of base/topper so I totally love the color matching of the shimmer and the blue base.  Formula and application were both great.  I found the crelly formula to be really wonderful - full coverage and the perfect mix of creamy and squishy.  I used 3 coats of Bella Blue for full depth and evens.  I finished with a layer of ellagee Fast Dry Topcoat.

And as I promised...some easy peasy nail art.  I started with a base of A Breath Of Pink and waited for it to dry completley.  Once dry I dry brushed on Bella Blue in random strokes all over my nails.  I love the distressed and "washed" look this creates.  Plus it's literally the easiest nail art anyone can do and I'm all about easy.  I topped this with a layer of ellagee Fast Dry Topcoat.
