And the Pantone Color of the Year for 2010 Is . . .

We've seen the color pop up as of late in the nail polish industry, and perhaps we'll be seeing more of turquoise, Pantone Institute's newly named Color of the Year for 2010. "[Turquoise] is believed to be a protective talisman, a color of deep compassion and healing, and a color of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky," Pantone's Leatrice Eiseman said in a statement. "Through years of color word-association studies, we also find that turquoise represents an escape to many – taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy," she adds. Cue the "Kokomo."

For 2009, Pantone picked mimosa as the Color of the Year. Since we didn't see it pop up in the cosmetics realm all that much, do you think we'll be seeing turquoise featured more prevalently in 2010's makeup looks? While I don't foresee turquoise lipstick on the horizon, this blue-green hue is perfect for eyes, nails, and hair accessories, no? See what I mean below.
