Fabulous Colour Insights

A delve into why your best colours are worn and when, is amazingly illuminating…

A powerful form of communication; colour can be used to signal action, influence mood, even physiological reactions. Incredibly, colours are associated with increased blood pressure, metabolism, memory, and eyestrain.

So, brighten your day and those around you; pop on a bit of yellow!  Just don’t use it as a background for your computer..


Why are many school uniforms BLUE?

Blue, the colour of logic, affects our intellect, it activates the mind.

Wearing the right tone can help students focus and concentrate. It also has a calming effect and can open the mind to ideas. Navy is worn for many uniforms, expressing conservatism and tradition, you can’t go wrong. The world’s favourite colour.

Light Navy is best though if your dominant palette is Light, Warm or Soft!


Red affects us physically.  It has the appearance of being nearer than it actually is; attracting attention – it can affect our heart rate! It is the colour of warmth, energy, and excitement. Wearing Red will liven up your day, wear it if your energy levels are flagging, but not when trying to calm children at bedtime…

True Red for Deep, Warm and Clears; Geranium for the Light and Softs; Blue Red for the Cools.


Why is Green so calming?

It is the colour of balance and harmony. Our eyes require little to no adjustment to see it, our eyes find it restful. We can see more variations of green than of any other colour. On a primitive level it is reassuring, green means water and food.

Wearing the lighter and brighter greens make you look and feel more energetic and livelier; wearing darker greens you seem calm and at ease.

Gorgeous Greens for all – Peacock Green for the Lights; Fern for the Deeps; Lime for the Warms; Blue Green for Cools; Verbena for Softs and Emerald Turquoise for Clears.


Purple (violet) has the shortest wavelength, it is the last visible one, hence denoting its more whimsicle, spiritual associations, along with creativity and sensitivity.

Our beautiful colour swatch simply called ‘Purple’ is in all the six palettes – we all need to wear more of this! It is a lesser worn colour, but you’ll be amazed at the effect. All my clients have been surprised to know they can wear this colour – and have liked it when we’ve tried – have a go for yourself…

What a Difference!

Look at what a difference a shade makes…all these ladies come alive in their particular shades of the same colour:

I had the most fabulous, fun and inspiring experience with Nicki for the full colour works analysis.Being in my mid sixties I was a little apprehensive of what to expect, but from entering the beautiful consultation room, Nicki made me feel so relaxed.Nicki has such a great understanding of all aspects of colour and styling and was so professional, passionate and clear in her approach when choosing the best colour palette for me, which I found so helpful.I came away feeling so special about myself and both inspired and excited to start using my personal colour swatch wallet which has given me so much confidence and understanding in choosing my new wardrobe combinations. (So looking forward to my next shopping trip!!).I can’t thank Nicki enough for such a wonderful time and would highly recommend her services.
I had the most amazing experience with Nicki during her full works consultation. I genuinely can’t recommend her services enough. You can feel Nicki’s passion for colour instantly and she made me very comfortable and at ease during the appointment. Nicki really cares and it’s evident she wants to help women feel their best versions of themselves - which alone is just a beautiful thing! As someone who’s always been shy to experiment with colour personally (even though I work in fashion(!)), I came away with a new found confidence to explore colour and I honestly can say that I think about Nicki’s advice now whenever I’m shopping. The little swatch book I bought serves as a bit of a bible for me now and I’m so grateful to her for the experience!

This was my first experience of colour analysis. Nicki is a lovely friendly consultant who shares her expertise in clothes colour and make-up. I rarely wear make-up but absolutely loved the look Nicki created for me. I feel inspired and uplifted by the whole experience and cannot wait to colourfully recreate my wardrobe and my image. I highly recommend Nicki's service and advice to anyone who feels in need of a makeover and confidence boost.

The full works package with Nicki was such a fun and engaging experience! Nicki was great at showing me which colours look best on me and how to layer colours and wear them together. I liked that she not only showed me, but also explained her reasoning behind everything. I loved that she also gave advice on other things such as glasses, jewellery, make-up and hair. I came away from the session with a colour swatch booklet and new knowledge on how to dress and accessorize to suit my palette. Nicki was very professional and went out of her way to select colours and shades of make-up especially for me. I would highly recommend the experience.

The Full Works package with Nicki at Colour Fabulous was such a fun and inspiring couple of hours. At her beautiful house, Nicki skillfully found a range of colours, tones and hues that have transformed how I chose and wear clothes. Even more impressively Nicki found a range of new colours that not only really suit my husband but he's happy to wear them too! After years of wearing the same make-up shades, I was really delighted that Nicki was able to give me helpful and bespoke advice on how to change things up and use different make up tones for different effects. It was great that I could try so many shades and Nicki was so generous with her time and advice. We came away with a range of colour swatches and lots of ideas and a new confidence in how to chose and wear clothes. I would definately recommend the experience.
