Here are some tips for Colouring Tabs and Buttons for consistency across your applications and to avoid wasting time.  The colours are GREAT, but it is an extra step so you don't want to be agonizing over the perfect colours each time.

For Tabs, my plan is to use these colors in this order for each next tab

Red       e6194b    
Green    3cb44b    
Yellow    ffe119    
Blue      0082c8    
Orange    f58231    
Purple    911eb4    
Cyan       46f0f0    
Magenta    f032e6    
Lime    d2f53c    
Pink     fabebe    
Teal      008080    
Lavender    e6beff    
Brown    aa6e28    
Beige       fffac8    
Maroon    800000
Mint         aaffc3    
Olive    808000    
Coral    ffd8b1    
Navy    000080    
Grey    808080
White    FFFFFF    
Black    000000

For URL formula Buttons this is my plan so far.
Green 1ba802
Blue   058df5
Yellow (Gold) f5c608
Turquoise 08b3d1
red f00c2b
hot pink f508ae
