Pantone announced earlier this year, that the colour of 2014 was Radiant Orchid, a pretty lavender with pink undertones.
I wanted to do a manicure inspired by this and used Lancôme Violette Coquette as my interpretation of Radiant Orchid.
My mom's favourite flower is the orchid and I've been wanting to try to paint an orchid for a little while now.
Though the flowers aren't perfect, I'm pretty happy with how the entire manicure came together.
Violet is one of my favourite colours because it is feminine but different from pink. Hopefully I'll be able to find more "radiant orchid" nail polish colours soon!
