Duri Cosmetics "The Showstopper" Spring Collection

Monday, June 10, 2013 0

I was sent the Duri Spring "Showstopper" collection for review.

I have been packing my things for my big move to another town so my nails are in terrible condition so I had to swatch the colors on swatch sticks.

The bottles remind me of Essie bottles but they do have wider brushes than Essie.
Duri polishes have a volume of 15 mL,  Essie has a volume of 13.5 mL.

All these swatches are 3 coats.

Left to right:
Call me maybe, Satin Treat,  Dream Catcher,Afterhours, One Night Only, Showstopper

Before my big move I did manage to swatch Call me maybe

Here is 3 coats of Call me Maybe.  Isn't it a fabulous color?  I think this is the spring/summer it color. It looks really nice on toes and fingers.

I also stamped over call me maybe with a stamping image from Cheeky Beauty

Notoriously Neon!
Nicole by OPI Announces Two New Limited Edition Neon Mini Kits, the Brand’s First Neon Lacquer

Nicole by OPI launches its first neon nail lacquer with two limited edition mini kits. Scandalous! Neons includes vivid shades of blue, purple and pink while the Notorious! Neons includes vibrant shades of green, fuchsia and orange.

Each Neons kit includes a special white base coat, to be applied before adding color, allowing true neon pigments to pop.These kits offer the hottest hues in a mini size to complement summer styles,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “Think of your nails as a blank canvas.  With these color combinations, there are endless options for creating works of art.”

In addition to the white base, Scandalous! Neons includes: Blue Neon (this blatant blue is deliberately belligerent), Purple Neon (this attention-seeking purple is a real publicity hound), and Pink Neon (this pink’s purpose is to provoke your senses).
Along with white base, Notorious! Neons includes: Green Neon (this gossip-stirring green is the talk of the town), Fuchsia Neon (this fuchsia is famous for being unabashedly bold), and Orange Neon (this outrageous orange doesn’t know the meaning of meek).

“The shades included in both sets are perfect for accessorizing fingers and toes with bright pops of color,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “The first step is to apply the white base coat followed by the desired neon shade; finish with one coat of Nicole by OPI Top Coat Plus to achieve intense neon color with a glossy finish.”

Nicole by OPI formulas are long-lasting, fast-drying, and salon-quality.   Scandalous! Neons and Notorious! Neons mini packs will be available in stores beginning May 2013 for $10 each at retailers including Meijer, CVS, Duane Reade, H-E-B, Kroger, and ShopKo.  Top Coat Plus will be sold alongside the kits for $7.99. In Canada, the kits will be available for $12.50 each and Top Coat Plus for $10.99 at Loblaw, Jean Coutu, Rexall, London Drugs, and Shoppers Drug Mart.
