sealaura for julep

Hola!  So it's kind of inspiration week here at sealaura.  I was contacted by Julep to share inspiration for a custom nail color.  Of course shades of the lightest turquoise, topped by some sandy gold overtones came to mind.  I started perusing my sealaura files and wanted to share some of the places that give me this kind of vibe and inspiration.  Naturally, my time on St. John came to mind so I have included my favorite shots of the water as well as that golden light I was just telling you about.  I just love that shimmer or glimmer, whatever it is that you get when the light touches the water.  You might be wondering why I have a slimy jelly fish in my mood board.  Well, the thing is I do not see it as a slimy jelly fish.  I was mesmerized by the colors especially against the golden sand.  I met this Portuguese man'o war when I was living in the Texas Tropics.  I had no idea what it was until my friend Stephanie from Odyssey told me.  The Portuguese man'o war is not a common jellyfish which makes it appeal to me even more because for my Julep color I wanted something special.

What would your custom nail color look like?

I love your custom nail polish inspiration! I see those ocean colors with some shimmer all while being relaxed! I also find that jelly fish memorizing! If I was to do a custom color I think it would be inspired by a hot summer night's sunset!

This color combo is simply sublime. I suppose my custom color would be pretty much this, as it would look equally terrific on tan or "Odyssey-pale" skin, and it would go with my all-black wardrobe, too.
Matter of fact, I'm wearing a similar hue on my toes: Riva by Chanel.
Thanks for the mention! xo
