It's easy to misjudge the real shades of colors if you don't know the real name, given to them.


On wedding invitation cards, you will see names like, Cockroach brown, onion purple, jollof rice yellow and many other funny names given to colors.


Other times, we attach the wrong names to colors and it gives them a different meaning entirely.

Like when we mistake a purple color for blue or when we mistake a shade of white for grey, or sky blue for navy blue. 


These are common mistakes we make, which could be easily corrected by a deeper knowledge of colours.


Below are colors with their different shades attached to them. 

Different shades of the pink color

Different shades of the purple color

Different shades of the blue color

Different shades of the green color

Different shades of the yellow color

Different shades of the orange color

Different shades of the tan color
