Julep Nora

Ok, finally on the last suede polish from my November Maven box! Tonight I have Julep Nora, one of the two polishes in the November It Girl box. Julep describes Nora as a "silver aubergine suede." It's probably a good thing that Julep puts the silver descriptor first, because Nora is pretty, but not as purple as I'd like. The silver shimmer is pretty strong and seems to overpower the purple/aubergine tones in the polish. However, I think if you see this polish in real life, it's definitely more purple than my photographs show.

Nora has the same formula as the other suedes from Julep and I had no major issues applying it. Here I have used two coats of Nora and no top coat so you can see what the finish looks like.

And that wraps up my November Maven box!


  1. I honestly don't see any purple until your last three shots, where I can see a hint. I saw this in my reader and thought it was a charcoal grey suede. Either way, it's really pretty.

    1. I never would have even thought there was any purple in it. It just looks charcoal to me.
