    Julep has come to be the only polish I use and it is truly the best. With great customer service and deals you can’t go wrong! The idea of a contest where the winner receives a custom color is the best idea they’ve ever had! Whoever wins is incredibly lucky.

  • Wow. What an amazing contest! This is awesome! 😀

  • Ellen

    Love the creative process. I paint. I’m a photographer. I love color. The idea of me being able to create a new Julep nail polish gets me very excited. I have dozens of Julep colors on my bureau. The next one could be my creation!!!! I’m in!!

  • Nora Mitnick

    I started loving nail polish several years ago, and as soon as I discovered Julep, I was hooked!! I paint my nails at LEAST once a week and am constantly trying out new patterns, finishes, and techniques. I come from an artistic background, so I would LOVE to design and name a Julep color. Plus, I haven’t seen a Nora yet!!

    • Actually, there IS a Nora. It’s a Matte Suede from the November 2012 collection!

  • I absolutely love Julep and I am so excited about this contest!

    Angi …… I’ve never had ANYTHiNG with my name spelled right on it! An orchid for 2014 with a microglitter would be perfect! 2014 is going to be MY year!

  • Sarah Roe

    This is an awesome way to get people to get involved and to express their creativity. I love this!

  • Creative Fun <3

  • Julianna

    I would love to win this! My name is very hard to find on things, because my name has 8 letters in it, and has two N’s in it which is even harder to find, if i ever found something with my name on it ( never lol) it would be spelled with one N! So this would be an honor to win! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity! 🙂

  • rosalynn

    maybe im having a dumb moment but is this just for comments or is this where we enter? because it isnt very clear… anyways i would add a touch of white and a slight bit more blue to misti and call is rosalynn only because i want my name somewhere lol and i read through whole terms and conditions and still dont know if this is where I enter,.

  • My thoughts are a color called “Vintage Elegance” … a deep red, like those from the 40’s

  • 100 bottles of Julep nail polish. SWOON.

  • Chelanna


    • Chelanna

      And it would be awesome to see my name on something! Doesn’t happen to me, ever!

  • Heather

    I’d love a gorgeous oxidized copper sea green color–we’re talking Statue of Liberty green here. Maybe called “Ellis” as in Ellis island? I’m fascinated by that color! If it had a textured finish I would be in heaven.

  • Sunnybre Stensler

    Ohhhh I Hope I win! LOVE LOVE LOVE! this is so cool 😉

  • Renee

    Really hope to win, like everyone else! 🙂

  • Ashleigh Roe

  • Tracey

    What a fun giveaway! Like some of the others mentioned, my name is never spelled right on anything, so it’s fun to think of a color I love having my name. Lots of fun! Thanks for doing this, Julep!

  • Ariel

    I’d love an Ariel color. They even have my mom’s nam ((Florence)) so they should have an Ariel 😀

  • Ruby Hernandez

    I want to win this!! I just dont know what color I would pick.. How fun though!

  • Jilliana

    This is an opportunity of a lifetime. I am wishing so hard that I win, I would be so indescribably happy. Thank you Julep. I love you.

  • Julep already has a polish with my name (Carol) and my Mothers name (Grace) but I’d be thrilled to name a Polish after my favorite Aunt! Who wouldn’t want to win??Unfortunately I’m not very lucky 🙁

  • Roxanne

    I’ve already got the perfect color ready to go. Along with the perfect name!

  • Vanessa

    Wow this seems incredible,, If they can make a golden nail polish that I can fall in love with that would just be Awesome!! I’ve been trying to look for a gold polish but no luck. One, they don’t have much at this time of year around and the ones that I do find are either to dark and rusty looking or just either to light that it blends in with my skin color.. I want some thing to imitate a real golden color and call it (Golden Sun Set) because I love sun sets “Who doesn’t?” That would just be a Dream come true.. 🙂

  • Annabelle

    I like Daisy Dizzy name for my nail polish


  • Lynda

  • Wow, great idea for a giveaway! Would be so amazing to win!

  • alejandra

    i like this contest is cool i like to do my nails paint i like color blue with white in one nail , and color grey in the other nail

    i hope i win

  • I’m rooting for my entries, as are everyone else. I’d love a matte silver with green fish-scale flakes, named after my namesake, the Greek Goddess Athena. Growing up with her name, I always had the stigma of, when introducing myself, already being held to HER standards. “Hi, I’m Athena” “Like the GODDESS?” *insert awkward nod*. As such, she always inspired me; Mythic or no; To be better. To be smarter, to be wiser, to be more empathetic and caring. But most of all, she inspired me to BE someone. To inspire my own people, to which I have done so as well as I can. I’ve seen probably more tragedy than anyone else in my family combined; And I’ve come out the other side a stronger and wiser person. And with each tragedy, I rallied the others who were losing their own hope and strength, and together we made it through. That’s what I love doing, and it’s why I love and support Julep so much. I’m a PROUD affiliate, and I will never cease to wholeheartedly and completely defend the company and its products; Even when a snafu arises. Because just as friendships and people hit bumps in their roads, so do companies. But if anything, it only makes the person, friendship, or company, all that much stronger. 🙂

  • Jennifer

    Would love to win this! I would name my color ‘Athena’ or ‘Aphrodite.’

  • Tina DeLucat

    I love this contest…I really do hope I win. I have always loved nail polish since I was a little girl. Everyone complements me when I do my nails. They say it looks so professional and they really do. I love Julep nail polish and all the beautiful colors it offers. I would pick the name Serenity after my beautiful niece. She also loves nail polish. She buys different colors and she just loves doing her nails. A beautiful pink shade would be wonderful for her. I don’t use tweeter or pin interest. I would be more than estatic if I won because I never win anything…and to win something I love would make my Christmas even better… Thanks so much for the wonderful Christmas cheer. Tina…

  • Dayna Smith

    I can’t follow on instagram because I don’t have it. I would take all sparkly colors and call it Bejeweled

  • I love all the colors. You could do alot with all the colors. Very Nice.

  • I have been a cosmetologist for 18 years, I have always been told I have a special for colors, I have always done make-up,nails,and of course we can’t forget about coloring hair!!! I have had an insane amount of extra hours of training so I could be a corrective color specialist!!! So need less to say I LOVE COLORS!! I think adding a little color to everything always has a way of waking things up!!!!!!!!

  • Jenn

    Rosemary – after my amazing momma. Coral with berry rose micro glitter

  • love to see a hot pink with jolie

  • Alexandra

    I was thinking of a nice green color polish, maybe somewhat sea green? Something similar to #00cc99, #33cc99, #66ff99, #99ff99 (these are html color codes, btw).

    And going with a sea theme, the polish would have some nice shimmer or glitter in it as well, maybe of a teal or silver or gold color. 🙂

    The name of this polish would be Cordelia, which fittingly also means “of the sea” 😀 This whole concept was inspired from my friend’s recent trip to Greece, after showing me a whole bunch of gorgeous pictures she took of the waters 🙂

  • Alexandra

    Or how about a hot pink. or a pink-ish maroon color polish with latex finish. It shall be called Cassidy 🙂

  • Christina

    I just received my first box and I am already receiving so many emails from friends and family who want to subscribe under my profile.. thanks Julep Maven yall are the best! Best wishes and luck to everyone… love Mrs. Bawa 🙂

  • This isn’t actually related to the contest, since it’s over and all. but I wanted to share a very “surprising” moment recently – Christmas Eve to be specific. I love the boxes you use for shipping – silly I know “just call me the box lady” as my family already does. Anyway, my husband, who was doing some last minute wrapping, used one of the boxes with the packing (pretty cool stuff by the way) and when my 18 month-old great niece opened the box with her gift, she was in awe of the packing, no the gift inside. Yes, I know the packing was not appropriate for an 18 month-old, but apparently that was not a thought my husband had, so back to my great niece, all she could do after taking-out her gift was to touch the packing (confetti) and say “wow” over and over again. It was hilarious and so cute all at the same time. Mentioning this was just my way of saying not only are the colors you guys offer amazing, so is the packing.

    Thanks for the laughs…
