Manicure Monday: Julep "Nora"

Today I'm wearing one of the polishes from my November Julep Maven box, named "Nora". It's a silvery purple color, with a suede finish. You can add a top coat to make it more shiny, but I was kind of liking the matte look. 

This color was so pretty, but I was pretty disappointed when it started chipping the next day. Not just little chips, but huge flakes of the polish started falling off. I have never had a Julep polish do this, but apparently it is common for matte polish in general to have this problem. I guess putting a top coat just along the edges to help seal the polish helps some. Or I could add a matte top coat. Either way, it's a pretty color! 

What's on your nails this week?

    Might have to give it a try :)

  3. I've heard that the matte finishes are doing that, so I'm not going to even bother trying out mine. Pretty disappointing considering what it cost!

  4. I had this same experience with a Julep polish just today! Painted Saturday night and gone by Monday evening:( Hate that because it was a really awesome color!
