Hey friends! Happy Friday! My posting schedule kinda got away from me this week, and I wasn't able to get this up as early as I wanted. But better late than never!
Continuing with the Pantone spring and summer color palettes, today I have What A Pansy from the China Glaze spring collection, City Flourish. What A Pansy is the Violet Tulip shade from the palette, and offers a nice contrast to the color of the year, Radiant Orchid.

China Glaze What A Pansy (City Flourish Collection Spring 2014)
What A Pansy is a dusty purple crelly with strong blue undertones. In some lightings, it pulls a lot more blue than purple. I usually grab more red based purples than blue based, but that is a taste preference. As a result, this is a unique purple in my collection. Formula was okay, not fantastic. I had some dragging issues on the first coat, creating a patchy look. After letting it dry completely, a thicker second coat gave full coverage. I do so love the slight squishyness of the crelly formula.
While What A Pansy isn't a pastel, it has a slightly faded look that I think will translate very nicely into a spring wardrobe. I like the unique color, and it is a nice alternative to the Radiant Orchid shades that are abundant right now.
So are you a Violet Pansy kind of person, or a Radiant Orchid?
