OPI Gel Color in “Feel The Chemis-Tree”

So who decides what colors are in for Spring and Summer, Fall and Winter each year? Haven’t you always wondered? Well I have too, so I did a little research on my own and this is what I found out. Friends, I introduce to you Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year….drumroll please “Ultra Violet” or any “Power Purples.”  So what does the term Pantone mean? It is a “system for matching colors, used in specifying printing inks.” Since 2000 the Pantone Color Institute declares a certain color as “Color of the Year.” So this is where many designers and cosmetic companies get their inspiration for their product colors. Got it? Good!

The color applied to my nails in the above picture is OPI Gel Color in “Feel The Chemis- Tree.” It’s not an ultra violet purple but more of a darker eggplant color with some shimmer to it. I absolutely love the rich shade.  I had it applied by my nail technician Jade Brown at Stem Hair and Body Salon.  Now, you don’t have to go to a salon to achieve this same look.  I went to my nearest Target store and they have quite a few “Power Purple” shades you can choose from to create this Spring look.  Some of my favorite nail colors I discovered at Target  are below.

    1. Leza, thank you. The Essie polish is priced from $7.95 to $9.99 depending on where you purchase it. The Sally Hansen polish is priced from $6.99 to $7.99. And the OPI one is priced at $8.99.

  1. I’ve been trying to find some ultra violet shades but I feel like O.P.I doesn’t switch up their colors much in drug stores/Target =( I LOVE Feel the Chemis-Tree! I have the regular nail polish but so desperately wanted it in gel for Xmas. My nail salon doesn’t usually get all the new O.P.I but the regular nail polish was enough for me. So pretty! Love your blog!
