Make Your Own Nail Colour with Julep

A few days ago I was contacted by a representative of Julep to create a post that depicts my ideal nail polish colour. I along with some other bloggers will be taking part in this, and one of us will have the opportunity to have our dream colour become a reality.

It took me a good long while to decide what exactly I wanted this colour to look like and for a few days all I could come up with was a vague - fairly generic - image. I looked at some images on Pinterest and at Julep's nail collection for some inspiration and eventually came up with an idea. I've noticed that Julep's nail polishes - most of them anyway - are named after girls ranging from the likes of Abigail to Zoe and from there I decided to come up with a name and personify it into a unique-ish colour. Here's what I've managed to come up with:

The name that I've chosen for the colour is Wren - because it cool (haha). Now, let's get to know her. 

Who is Wren?

Wren is a stubborn girl that stands up for what she believes in, no matter the consequences. She mostly keeps to herself and doesn't appreciate being messed with. Retaliation is something that she doesn't hesitate on doing, she can be tough when she feels she needs to be and yet be kind enough to defend people who can't defend themselves. I guess at times saying that she's unhinged would be a bit of an understatement, but she's overall a strong, kind person - even if a little dark.

I love myself some glitter nail polish and I'd like my colour to be just that. The colours that I've chosen to include in the polish, are colours that have inspired me and I feel really depict who exactly Wren is.

I imagine the base colour to be black and the glitter fragments themselves to be the colours of those depicted above. And lastly, I imagine this to be a crackle nail polish to further represent Wren's unstable personality. 

Overall to me, the colour just represents wild freedom and strength and I like the end product of what I've come up with. I tip my hat to those who's job it is to come up with nail polish colours, cause it's not so easy.
What do you guys think of the look?

Did the description create a clear enough image for you?

If your as curious I was to know if Julep has a nail colour with your name on it, you should check out their line of colours here. As it turns out there is a colour named Shannon, I'd imagined that it would've been an icy pastel blue, but I guess a pastel green is close enough.

And, if you're interested in fashion and in winning a trip to New York, Julep is currently hosting a sweepstakes in which the winner (and a friend) get a trip to New York Fashion Week and a $5,000 shopping spree. Here's the link to enter. Hurry though, the sweepstakes ends on the 30th.

T'is all.

Bye everyone and I'll talk to you in the next post.
