Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been obsessed with makeup, especially in creating my own concoctions. I would mix and mash potions at home… adding essential oils to body lotions, mixing my nail polishes until I had the shade I wanted… mashing up slivers of my mom’s lipsticks with chapstick to create a tinted balm. Many times these creations ended in trouble – with spills on the carpet or angry parents (especially when I used my two younger sisters as my guinea pigs..) but you can’t say I wasn’t creative!
For that reason, I was incredibly excited when BirchBox asked me to participate in their first blogger collaboration with Zoya. BirchBox selected a group 12 bloggers, and asked us each to create a moodboard for our ideal Spring 2012 nail polish. The winning entries (three of them,) will be turned into actual Zoya shades… talk about a dream come true!
I created this moodboard because I was inspired by all of the “Under the Sea” colors and looks that we saw during Spring Fashion Week. Besides that, I’ve always sort of believed that I was supposed to be a Mermaid.
