Pantone Color of the Year 2020: Classic Blue, Nail Polish and Decorating Ideas

The Pantone Color of the Year for 2020 is Classic Blue. They described it as being like the color of the sky at dusk. It's a calming, peaceful color which is what we need in our crazy world right now. Color psychology, if you will. Last year's color was Living coral, a bright lively color.

Another shade of blue, Cerulean, was the Pantone Color of the year 20 years ago. Many of us were freaked out that the computers were going to crash when they had to turn over to 2000. We needed the tranquility of blue then too!

I am a fan of blue. I always have been. You will frequently find my fingers and especially my toes, a shade of beautiful blue nail polish. I'll show you a few of my favorites that have the Classic Blue look.

Here is Zoya Aire from the Innocence Collection. It's similar to the Pantone Classic Blue.

I also love a little blue eye shadow. Click here to see my post on blue makeup 

I also decorate my house in shades of blue including Classic Blue. Even though I hate the tile counter top from the '80s in my kitchen, it happens to be a shade of Classic Blue so I'm right on trend, sort of. If only it wasn't tile!!!

Feeling bold? How about a blue wall? I painted a blue accent wall for my friend last summer. The inspiration piece was her blue vase. Flashy Sapphire from Behr Paint was a great match to the deeper color in the vase.

The paint came out fantastic!!! It's bold and beautiful yet it has a soothing quality about it. I really love how that vase looks on the mantle with the blue wall.

It went from mediocre yellow to bright, colorful blue!

Not feeling that bold? You can still be trendy by adding little touches of blue.

It is easy to add touches of blue throughout your house with simple accessories like pillows, candles and art pieces without spending a lot of money.

You can add some pretty blue knobs to your cabinets for a touch of Classic Blue in the kitchen or bathroom. I saw these cute ones on Amazon along with other pretty blue things to design on a dime.

Here's a beautiful blue candle I like.

I'm loving these blue pillows.

Even a blue accent rug would be an inexpensive way to add some blue to a room.

You can even add some blue towels to your bathroom. The blue towels along with the blue cabinet knobs would look amazing in the bathroom!

Here's a great thing about blue, blue coordinates with so many colors. You don't need to go painting and changing everything in your house. Adding some blue to your existing color palette will work beautifully. The brown, green and vibrant flower colors of the landscape go perfectly with the blue sky.

And how gorgeous the orange, pink and purple colors of the sunset go with the deepening blue sky. This is a sunset from my favorite vacation spot, Jamaica. So beautiful!

It's easy to get with the Classic Blue trend on yourself and in your home. I'll be looking in the stores to see if fashion follows the color of the year.

You can find Zoya products at salons, spas, and on Amazon.  We carry Zoya nail polish at Styling Point in Media, Pa. Come see me to get your nails looking pretty with a beautiful Zoya nail polish color.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp
