Hi everyone!  I am looking to make the color of the year Radiant Orchid.  Suggestions?  Do you think Americolor Fuchsia and a little bit of purple would work?  Thanks!

That's a pretty color, these color charts might help.

I know its a color chart on here somewhere that tells you exactly how many drops to add to get a certain color, if I find it I will post it.

Wow, I must have been under a rock because that is one popular color. I already know what color my hands are going to be dyed by the end of June with all the weddings.

 

It would depend on light or dark you want to go. I would start off with the deep pink Americolor a drop at a time, then the fuchsia and then the purple in moderation because after an hour or so it will get darker, maybe even a hint of royal blue

 

Here are a few links for charts I found on CC, good luck with achieving the hottest color of 2014!
