Color is a powerful thing. It has been shown to affect our mood and well-being. Certain colors of paint on the wall can make a room seem larger or smaller, and different colors of clothing can even affect the way we look—black, for instance, is very slimming. As young children, we’re always asked, “What’s your favorite color?” And even then, we think carefully before responding, because it’s such an important answer.
Once a year, fashion devotees hold their collective breaths until Pantone announces the “Color of the Year”—and then they rush out to buy as much high fashion and home décor in that color as they can. For the year 2013, the color is Emerald, a hue that Pantone calls “Lively, radiant, and lush… a color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance, and harmony.”
Luckily, Yuzen subscribers don’t even have to brave a trip to the mall in order to fit in with the fashionistas. The Summer Yuzen box includes a special nail lacquer from Spa Ritual called “Emerald City.” Not only is it a color that will make your friends green with envy and put some pep in your step (green is the color of energy, youth, growth, and hope, among other things), but you can be confident knowing that all of Spa Ritual’s nail products are vegan, eco-friendly, and free of harmful ingredients like formaldehyde and synthetic dyes.
Plus, with colors like Heliotrope, Poppy, Clay, and Indigo, and dozens of others, there’s surely one for every mood. Visit www.sparitual.com to find your favorite color—even if it’s different now than when you were three!
