Colour crush......Flamingo Pink!

Loving that flamingo pink!!!!
Do you want a colour to BLOW away those winter cobwebs??? Well if you do, let me just mention  Flamingo Pink, yes it is a little Kitsch not always subtle/nuanced, but when used as an *accent* colour it can be utterly gorgeous. It is admittedly a colour that can quite easily end up *wearing* you, so that hint on lips, cheeks and of course nails can look beautiful but as a statement colour it still can look beguiling with a vintage twist.
Flamingo pink- Pantone style!
