When I was asked to review the Bright Lites, Pretty City Collection for Spring/Summer 2015, I quickly accepted. I am a huge fan of Duri Cosmetics nail polish because they are affordable. Also, they are completely safe, environmentally friendly and free from DBP, toluene and formaldehyde. I received all 12 Shades of Bright Lites, Pretty City Collection to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
About the collection:
Duri’s new city-inspired nail polish collection features 12 new shades to provide the perfect finishing touch for all of spring and summer’s fashion trends and carefree ways.
From riding high in a gingham pastel on a double-decker in the Big Apple, to testing the waves in an itsy-bitsy bikini in the Pacific Ocean, the “Bright Lites, Pretty City” hues take their cue from the “land of the beautiful.” East to West, North to South, and with plenty of staying power in-between with chip-resistant and 3-free formulas that go day and night, coast-to-coast.
The collection includes:
645 – WINDY CITY ROAR
646 – NYC APPLE ENVY
647 – THE O.C. ORANGE
648 – VIVA STRIP TEASE
649 – AUSTIN CITY LITES
650 – DC POWER PLAY
651 – BATON ROUGE BLUES
652 – BERRY BOSTON STRONG
653 – CHARLESTON RED
654 – SOBE SOLEIL
655 – MEMPHIS MINT
656 – BROOKLYN WINE BAR
This past week, I had the opportunity to try a few of the colors. For the first look, I wanted to go bold! I wanted to try colors that were unique. I chose to try Brooklyn Wine Bar and NYC Apple Envy! I have never been to New York, so I called this look my New York theme.
The colors definitely did not go together but I still love how pretty they are! NYC Apply Envy is a bright neon green color. It looks like it can glow in the dark! Brooklyn Wine Bar is a beautiful dark lavender color. Unfortunately a few hours after I applied the colors, the NYC Apply Envy started to crack and separate from my nail. After that, I ended up removing the colors altogether. Even though my first experience was not that great, I hope to create many more unique looks!
For my second look, I wanted to go sexy. I chose Charleston Red! I have tried red nail polish before and loved it, so I was so thrilled to try another shade of red!
Charleston Red went on so smooth and even. I could not ask for a better consistency in nail polish. The color just coated my nails so perfectly. I love wearing red! It adds a sparkle of femininity. Living in my family of boys (my husband and son) I adore adding just a little bit of femininity to my look.
I have several other colors to try. I can easily change my look with a different color of nail polish. Best of all, I do not have to leave home to explore different cities. I am so thrilled for the variety of colors in the Bright Lites, Pretty City Collection.
