Story Time: If I Could Name, Create or Simply Be a Nail Polish Thursday 15 March, 2012
When Makeup.com asks me to create and name a (virtual) nail polish, I go for my obvious choice—blue—but throw it a curve ball.
I was recently posed the question, “If I was a polish…what would I be?” by Makeup.com. Right from the get-go, I knew I had to go blue. My unflinching amour for anything blue basically seals that deal. But from there, it became: What shade of blue? And then: What smarty-pants name? And then: How do I make it different?
I currently drool over cornflower and periwinkle lacquers; there’s something about that underlying hint of purple that makes them seem so grown-up yet unique. So after much gritting of teeth and grinding of brain cells, here is what I came up with:
Description: “This creamy opaque periwinkle offers a playful “wink” of flash by way of holographic copper and crimson micro flecks. Why: I geek-out over anything considered “daring” in beauty, and blue polishes are no exception: navy shimmers, sky blue creams, multidimensional teals—I wear them all, and sometimes all at the same time! For me, though, an unexpected element in a polish, like a strange undertone, is what really catches my attention. In all things beauty, I like when something shouldn’t work, but it does.”
I wasn’t the only blogger asked to name my own polish; visit Makeup.com to read all of the gals’ ingenious (virtual) creations. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all make these polishes a reality? One can dream…
What do you think? Would you wear my Daring-wink-le?
