The Daily Hex: Spicy Pink


Another of those misleading color names, today’s The Daily Hex is far from the cheeky and girly glow of pink.

What’s a ‘hex’ anyway?
Hex actually pertains to hex values, which are 6-digit hexidecimal numbers that are primarily used in web design. Your photographs can be viewed by hex values and we have almost 1,500 common colors that you can browse through, most of which have names that are quirky, goofy, and downright weird. But don’t be fooled, these colors are real eye candies, too!

How these colors got their funny names still puzzles me. For instance, Spicy Pink is not pink at all. Nor does it bear any resemblance to the tasty spicy pink sauce. So how come they called it Spicy Pink, huh?

Well, it can pass as ‘spicy’ if you look at this gray and pepper-colored photographs:
