Trending Tuesday: Color Of The Year #rosequartzandserenity

If the world of alicia was the internet the color of the year #rosequartzandserenity would be trending. Maybe it’s because they’re the perfect shades for spring, the dynamic duo has me all things pink and blue… especially blue since it is my favorite color!

Color Of The Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity

Nailed It:  Lately my mani’s have been straight up color of the year.  Jamberry released a collection around the colors and I picked up Rose Quartz Getaway (see here) and Sculpted in Serenity as seen here. I wore Sculpted in Serenity first with the Steel Magnolia shade from the mark.  Nailed It Duo (here) and then later with Essie Fiji for the ultimate color of the year combo!

Bag It:  To add some serenity to my everyday I saw this Christian Siriano for Payless bag at a steal of a price and have been obsessed ever since!  Not only do I love the color obviously, the functionality of it is amazing… two full top zip pockets on each side PLUS 4 slip pockets AND a normal zip pocket.  And it fits so much! OBSESSED.

How are you working in the color of the year?  Do you like the idea of 2 colors this year?  I personally do think they go together really well and in a more modern way vs a baby shower way.

Even though I’m not going on spring break I can put myself there mentally with this mani!  I picked out this wrap to wear for Easter because the color of the year rose quartz and serenity are the prefect easter colors.  Once I put it on I was like this is kinda perfect with the palm print since everyone is on spring break!

The wrap I used is Rose Quartz Getaway from Jamberry with an accent nail in Essie Apres Chic.  To prep I used this Avon Senses Cherry Blossom Hand Cream to help with cuticles.  Then I made sure the the nails were clean before applying Avon Ridge Filling Base Coat before applying my wrap.

As perfect as this mani is for spring break I’m wearing it for Easter.  What I love is I put it on Palm Sunday and it looks just as good come Easter Sunday!  And that week inbetween when I look down at my nails I feel like I’m on a mini spring break.
