Last year it was emerald.
So, what does orchid represent to the world?
The Pantone Color Institute talks about it here, from their website:
"Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society."
"An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.".

The shade which blends, fuchsia with purple + pink undertones is quite flattering to one's complexion and nails.
So look for orchid makeup to really hit the market soon.
