Julep Amber & Nora

Hello :)  Today I will show you a manicure using 2 Julep shades; Amber - a golden bronze suede & Nora - a silver aubergine suede.  I started out with 2 coats of Nora, used striping tapes to tape off the nail tips, added Amber then carefully removed the tapes.  It took me a while to figure out how to invert these colors on the accent nail lol !!!!  And the striping tapes didn't stick well on the suede surface but glad that these came out pretty clean.  Let's take a look at these photos :)
 I loved Nora so much that I decided to show her alone - 2 coats (not sure why the bottle appears like that?)
Formula on both of these was great and application was a breeze.  However, these chipped the very next day.  Too bad they didn't last otherwise I would've kept it on for another day !!

What do you think?  Thank you for dropping by :)

This is fantastic! I had the same problem with my Julep suede, chipped after only one day. Thought it might have been my application, but maybe not?
