Pantone Color Of The Year 2022: Find Your Nail Inspo

Pantone Color Of The Year 2022: Find Your Nail Inspo



As we head into the new year, there is still a lot of uncertainty. We are still living in COVID times and adjusting to the "new normal." Pantone recently announced their Color of The Year for 2022 and it's the perfect representation of where we're at today. Now, more than ever, we need unity to move forward in the new year. The Pantone Color of the Year for 2022 is 17-3938 Very Peri. 


"As we move into a world of unprecedented change, the selection of PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri brings a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue color family, encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time with its violet red undertone, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages creativity and imaginative expressions."

- Leatrice Eisman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute


PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri symbolizes hope, something that people are looking for, especially during these times. Eisman also points out that this is the first time in the history of their Pantone Color Of The Year that they created a new color. "As society continues to recognize color as a critical form of communication, and a new way to express and affect ideas and emotions and engage and connect, the complexity of this new red violet infused blue hue highlights the expansive possibilities that lay before us," says Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.

Now let's take a look at how you can incorporate PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri into your style this year. 


Color: OPI Infinite Shine "My Color Wheel Is Spinning"

There's nothing that says, "new year, new you" than a sparkly manicure. This gorgeous purple from the OPI Celebration Collection is a great transitional color as we go from the holiday season into the new year, while also embracing the Pantone Color of the Year theme perfectly.

This gorgeous purple from the Cosmic Pop collection is also a shimmery stunner perfect if you want to incorporate a little Pantone into your style. This has flecks of blue and red, which create the perfect blend for embracing PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri.

Michele creates the perfect party mani with these two colors from CND. We love this modern take on a French manicure. Maybe you want to keep a minimalistic look but also change it up at the same time. This mani definitely embodies the creative spirit of PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri.

Natalie plays with negative space in her mani design. Here, she uses the color "Alexandrite By You" from the ORLY Bejeweled Collection. This is perfect for those who want looking to make a statement with their nails. You're bold and not afraid to stand out in the crowd. 

📸: @paintedpolishedperfect | Colors: Cirque Colors "Narcisse"

This shade from Cirque Colors Vice Collection is a brighter take on the Pantone Color Of The Year, but still fits the theme perfectly. Although you typically start seeing these bright shades during the spring and summer seasons, the blue undertones of this color make it work as a winter shade. 

📸: @livwithbiv | Colors: OPI Nature Strong "Spring Into Action"

Maybe you're someone who prefers softer, lighter colors. This shade from the OPI Nature Strong line is perfect. It'll become especially popular as we head into the spring season.
