This velvety blue hue glistens and gleams with a bold and vivacious magnificence seemingly fit for royalty while synchronously approachable. Dazzlingly bright and energetic, it heeds adulation with a juxtaposition of both restrained sophistication and lavish luxury. It’s enthrallingly effervescent when paired with monochromatic facets of powder, sky, and cerulean blues that graduate to this elegant tone, while jewel-box pairings of emerald, peridot, and garnet are splendorous and stately with a noble nod. Contrastingly, canary yellow, coral, and kelly greens playfully evoke a congenial liveliness amidst the dramatic depth of saturation.
