Morning ya’ll. Today I’ve got some of Duri’s new fall/winter 2009 colors from their Rags to Riches collection. This is a 12 piece collection that ranges from light pink to dark vampy red.
I don’t have that many Duri polishes, but the ones I do have I totally love. They do a MEAN “lit from within” and have some of my favorite ones. If you haven’t seen them, check out my post here about them.
The formula on Duri polish is really great. They are thin and easy to apply and I rarely have any issues. I do usually need three coats for the lighter ones, but that’s fine by me as I prefer as much opacity as possible. Check them out!
Penny Saved Penny Earned
Penny Saved Penny Earned is a very pretty dusty pink creme with a hint of lavender. I wasn’t too sure I would like this when I saw the bottle but on, it’s actually very flattering. It’s so close to my skin tone that it almost looks like a “nude” on me. It’s definitely got that professional and clean look about it. This was three coats.
Dress To Impress
Dress To Impress is a dusty medium lavender creme. This one was really pretty on me and I like it. I’m not sure if it’s all that original though, we have been seeing a lot of purple cremes lately. This was three coats.
Formula For Success
Formula For Success is a nice deep red creme. It gave me some problems as far as opacity. This was three coats and you can still see areas where it’s not completely even. I have trouble with these kinds of colors frequently, I think that it’s because I am not careful enough with how much polish is on the brush, so some spots wind up darker than others.
Rags To Riches
Rags To Riches is hands down “the winner” here. This is their most fabulous lit from within color of this collection. It’s a jewel colored dark red with gold shimmer that just *GLOWS*. I don’t know what it is, but I could stare at it all day long. This was three coats. Check out the macro shot below.

From what I have seen with this collection so far, it’s a really great one. I like that there is a wide color range and also a range of finishes. Honestly I would LOVE less red/pink and more crazy vampy’s that glow (how about a glowing deep jade green or royal purple?), but we can’t have it all now can we?
You will be able to find these in September on their website here and they retail for $5.00 each.
