Now that we have introduced our Hello Birdie polish color wheel, it's time to pick your palette! What is a palette? It is a specific range of colors used together in a work of visual art, like a painting, film, or wardrobe. Artists intentionally group colors together based on their different qualities, and a carefully curated palette can effectively set the mood and be incredibly expressive. So, let's get into how you can pick your personal palette using our polishes!
Did you know that pink could be cool and brown could be warm? Each color has an inherent cool or warm effect that plays games with our eyes. Here we have our favorite light lavender shade Sweetie Bird and chilled out pastel sage Wingin' It representing our cool colors, while Cupid Sparrow and For Flock's Sake represent our warmer friends. Cool colors generally tend to sink back, while warm colors pop out. Depending on what kind of statement you're looking to make, don't forget to take your color's temperature!
Probably the most drastic color clash in this feature and we love it. Neutrals are colors that tend to blend with anything and everything, and the perfect neutral will usually go unnoticed, which is not a bad thing! Tweet Yo Self
with a pale neutral or keep it cool with a slate gray Stormy Feather
. Neons, on the other hand? They can't be ignored! Pink Flamingos
is a perfect summery neon, but Good Migrations
is a year-round hit. While neutrals have a modern feel, neons give off a seriously futuristic vibe. Now, if you have a hard time choosing, let's cut to the chase: they look fabulous together
. Add a small shot of neon to your next neutral manicure and be prepared for the compliments on your clever choice of palette!
Now for the natural palette featuring everything earthy: in this case, we've got earth tones and jewel tones. Just like neons and neutrals, our terrestrial palette can be bold or benign. Make a statement with cool turquoise shade Eggsistential
or deep ruby shade Bird of Prey
. Feeling more pragmatic? Reach for a raw metallic bronze Falcon
or ochre shade Over Easy
