I realize that the amount of Pantone inspired products, projects and other color chip related items have reached almost comical proportions, but that doesn't stop them from being somewhat blog-worthy to the design crowd.

Using acrylic nails and photo-copied numbers on clear adhesive labels, Jacquie created a Pantone chip palette on the tips of her fingers.
Jacquie printed a Pantone chip number on clear self-adhesive label paper in her printer (that's why the nails all read the same -and incorrect- Pantone number 18-3943):
Some of the colors she actually used:
