Julep Nora

This post contains an affiliate link.

Last week I decided to continue with taking a break from my Pokemon nails. I've also been using a lot of Zoya polish lately, so I decided to take a break from it as well. Instead, I picked up a couple of Julep polishes out of my stash to play with. Just to be clear, I paid for this polish using Julep Jules (site credits.)

The first polish I have to share with you today is Nora. If you're not familiar with Nora, it is one of their suede polishes. It's a lovely very dark purple which dries to matte in just a few minutes.

I have to say, while I'm impressed with the dry time and I do love the color, I was a bit disappointed at how dark it is. I wish it were more purple. The only issue I had with this polish was that I first tried doing a thin coat. It does not apply well at all this way; it's streaky and gunky and just NO. So I definitely recommend using 1 thick coat for this polish as opposed to two thin coats. That's all you really need, is just one heavy coat.

 What do you think of Nora? I do really love the color and surprisingly enough I'm finding that I really love matte polishes.

I hope to have several more posts for you featuring Julep polishes later this week :) Thanks for reading!

EDIT: I forgot to mention, yesterday was Purple Day! I also forgot to mention the entire reason I tried out this polish... ironically, it's because it is Epilepsy Awareness Month in Canada. So please forgive my epileptic memory for forgetting to comment about that :P

Nail Narcotics has been posting in support of Epilepsy Awareness Month all month long, and I wanted to show my support. :) You can find my Epilepsy Awareness posts from last November here, in addition to my Brain Injury Awareness post for this month.
