Norepinephrine is a thermal polish but I wasn’t able to capture it very well. I’m going to point you to Jenalyn’s swatches which made me buy the darn thing in the first place!

I don’t know if I shared how I create splatter manis now! Basically I make them into a decal by creating the splatter on a piece of plastic wrap/sandwich bag, wait for it to dry, peel it off and cut out a section for my nails.
