color theory: red and pink

Red and pink: unexpected, yet predictable.
Red and pink are analogic on the color wheel. In other words, they are next to each other. Using shades of one color always looks good, but adventuring into the next analogic color is a little dangerous. You have to get just the right shades. This warm combo has me totally smitten. The perfect neon magenta with a bright fire engine red. Brilliant.

Where to try it?
Your fingernails, with your red jeans, in your next print design,  in your kitchen would be lovely.

I love it, but I don't think I could pull it off. YOU totally could though. :)
