I recently discovered Colour Lovers.com and the first time I saw it I was hooked on it because a get a chance to name colors which is actually Fun :)

By the way, Please Check out and Puzzle Skratch! Page on Facebook thanks! :D

Yeah! I agree! I think it is really fun! The most of the time I absolutely invent the names of the colors and these names often make me laugh because they make no sense and some of them sound really funny! I imagine all of us saying, for example:

"I bought an amaioio t-shirt."
Amaioio" />
"Look how beautiful my new mamipapi trousers are!."
Mamipapi" />

Hahaha, yeeeeeah!

It's ok Imp. I usually name my pallets after people (such as Nyusha) and colors after a song or lyrics from a song. The only exception is "Platye" from my "Marina Maksimova" Pallete... Platye (the dark green) means 'dress' in Russian...and Platye is the color for the dress. Naming colors in foreign languages is great too. :) Hope this helped.

when you have named some 1000 colors, I suppose we should be tired of naming the colors !

I never run out of that. I keep it simple.

I like picking color names wondering what poor sap will end up making a palette/pattern with them:

Firefly_Butt
AbductedBytheDutch
What_She_Said

Also, "Color Me Impressed"!
Impressed

I love naming the colours. I like to pretend I'm naming makeup. :P Sometimes I think about getting the various micas & creating my own makeup palettes named after the colours I've made.

CL should make a makeup line! Or find a company that will do custom eyeshadow palettes and team up so we can wear our creations!

Ahahaha!!! I'm way ahead of you. I actually proposed this A WHILE back and only one person responded. Origamimei. My business is Eskimo Kissez and i make custom bath, body, and beauty products. My idea was to have a color naming contest for my eyeshadow on colourlovers and the winners got the eyeshadows named with their colors and won free eyeshadow but maybe no one saw my post. In fact, i can't even find it myself!

Here's my website

... See, this is exactly what I meant about taking the time to get to know the site before you start interacting. Mei and GabsGiggles are good friends, they banter like this constantly. A simple, quick glance at their profile pages would've told you that.

Seriously, if you want to be a respected member of this site, you're going about it in exactly the wrong way. Stop responding here, start enjoying the colours. Have fun playing with the creative tools. Based on my own experience, it won't be long at all before people will notice and welcome you. All your current course is doing is irritating those same people.
plus even though it was not to me, it came to my notifications and I thought it was something rude.
