To be honest with you, I'm pretty basic when it comes to my nails. I've only been to the salon a couple of times for a manicure and I don't do so well with nail art so I rarely even try. I have a fairly good collection of nail polish, but don't paint my nails on a regular basis. The main reasons being that the polish doesn't dry fast enough and I make a big ole' mess before I'm done with all ten fingers. That, and I hate when nail polish chips within two days of application. In other words, I'm lazy and don't want to deal with the hassle if I'm going to have to do it all over again in just a couple of days. There, I said it.
When I do get the hankering to paint my nails, there's a couple of brands that I feel are superior. And those are the ones that I continue to purchase from. A brand that I only heard of until recently is Duri, and I'm more than impressed with their nail polish.
Duri was established in 1990 and has a line of over 200 nail polish shades. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I was able to try four love-inspired shades from Duri.
The four shades I received arrived in a gift box. Unfortunately, the box itself was smashed and the nail polishes were not secured in it. Not quite sure the whys of that.
The four colors were:
EVERY DAY IS A VALENTINE a pigment rich true red
CUPID RULES a modern bubblegum pink
ICED ROSES, a satiny purple pastel
UNEXPECTED KISS, a sheer, orchid pink
I ended up playing around and painting my nails twice with the polish, each time using all the shades on my fingers. They complemented each other well and, of course, looked festive for Valentine's Day. I like all of the colors but have to say Cupid Rules is my favorite.
What made Duri stand out for me is that the polish went on smoothly and didn't clump. I put on two coats for optimum coverage, and it dried quickly. I wore the nail polish for quite a few days before there was any wear of chipping or thinning. The colors, coverage, and consistency are what make this a superior nail polish brand in my book.
