    I love seeing what the hot colors will be for spring! Thanks for sharing this and how I can apply it to my Prismacolor work. I already own most of these colors!

  2. I think the new Sap Green Light would be a better match for Margarita than Celadon Green. It’s much warmer.

    Otherwise – very thoughtful to put this together for users who need to keep w/the latest color trends!

      Glad you like it! I think I may agree with you about the Sap Green being a better match for Maragarita! Unfortunately I couldnt use it though for this post, it was still under wraps ;)
