|Style.com: 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2012 RTW Collection|
When I first seen Phillip Lim's Spring 2012 RTW Collection I could not help but be inspired by the flirty and fun color palette. Aside from the beautiful soft colors, I was mesmerized by the fluidity of the fabric. Phillip Lim created such a stand out collection that was not only stunning in palette but made approachable by the easy-going and drapey silhouettes. The relaxed and soft lines were a definite juxtaposition to the eye-popping colors. What was even more bewitching about the colors were the selected combinations. My by far favorite combination was the ensemble above. Essie's color polishes were a perfect choice in replicating this pastel ombre color combination.
|Essie Nail Polish: Playmate (Purple), Action (Orange), Lapis of Luxury (Blue)|
I specifically chose Essie's Playmate (purple), Action, and Lapis of Luxury (blue). I also decided to not turn this into a color blocking inspiration because the Phillip Lim ensemble was such a perfect pairing that the literal interpretation for the pastel color sequence was pure perfection.

I encourage you to not hold back on your inspiration and try out this pastel ombre color combination or any other set of colors that spark your creative juices!
