Sequins and Sea Breezes: Julep Custom Color + NYFW Sweepstakes

Julep Custom Color + NYFW Sweepstakes

5/28/2014

Happy Hump Day dolls! 

When I was younger my dream job was to be the person who created the nail polish colors and came up with the fun names for them. I mean, what girl doesn't want to create her own manicure color? So when Julep reached out to me to do a post about what the inspiration behind my personal nail color would be of course I had do it! Being the import Florida girl that I am I decided I wanted my personal color to reflect what Florida is known best for, the beaches. There's something so calming about sitting on the beach and listening to the waves lap against the shore, putting your toes in the sand and looking out at the sun glistening against the crystal clear blue water. So I decided to take inspiration from one of my favorite places, The Keys.


I love the varying colors of blue/turquoise and how the water almost glitters against the sun. I'd love to be able to take this color with me every day! So I decided to share with you a few inspiration pictures that I would use as inspiration to create my own personal nail polish!

  40. I sized the dress according to the sizing chart and it fits! I will get it tailored slightly now that it has arrived, thought the company was very willing to work with my measurements to get me my perfect fit.
