Duri- Steal The Spotlight [Swatch]




Duri- Steal The Spotlight is a vibrant orange-toned red jelly base with golden-orange shimmer.  It's really on the cusp of orange-red.  Is it red? Is it orange? I have no idea! (And, it will probably depend on the lighting.)

Artificial light, three coats:



Window-filtered daylight:



Outside, shade:

Hmm, so overall, for me, this is a little underwhelming.  It's a nice color, but nothing earth-shattering, and although it's a jelly I do wish it were a little less sheer.  Also the shimmer just serves to give it an extra glow- you really don't notice it too much otherwise in person.

Formula: It's got a medium viscosity, and glides on the nail nicely, almost buttery.  I had visible nail line after two coats, so I think three is best, and in fact there is still VNL since it is a jelly. Overall, very good though- a totally different experience than I had with my last Duri.

  3. I didn't know Duri also had coloured polish! This one is gorgeous, although I'd have loved more shimmer :D
