Duri Keep Your Options Open Summer 2012 Collection Swatches & Review

Duri wants you to Keep Your Options Open this summer with their new collection called…Keep Your Options Open!

This collection actually encompasses a spring part and a summer part, each with six new nail shades.

Now I feel I always need to say this because people don’t seem to know. Duri ROCKS. They are one of my favorite nail polish brands and here’s why. Their colors are awesome. Their formula is creamy, opaque and amazing. They have quite a few colors I completely drool over every time I pull them out of my nail drawers. I really love them and here, here, here and here is why!

Duri Celebrate The Sunset
Celebrate The Sunset

Celebrate The Sunset is a bright pink/lilac creme. UGH the formula was fantastic! Creamy, rich and so smooth. This was just two coats and I really love the color on me.

Duri Lazy Days
Lazy Days

Lazy Days is a mauve creme. This is another super creamy nice formula and just two coats. I don’t normally like mauve that much in nail polish but this is really nice I think.

Duri How To Pick A Winner
How To Pick A Winner

How To Pick A Winner is a greyish blue with slight purple creme. This is a really gorgeous shade. Not really a cornflower blue because it’s more grey. But I do see some purple in it. Great formula, just two coats.

Duri Steal The Spotlight
Steal The Spotlight

Steal The Spotlight is a bright orange with gold shimmer. HOT! Vivid, bold and bright, I love it. Again with the amazing formula and just two coats.

Duri The Big Score
The Big Score

The Big Score is a silvery/purple foil. It looks more like a dusty purple than silver but you do see silvery shimmer throughout. Nice even formula, just two coats.

Duri Keep Your Options Open
Keep Your Options Open

Keep Your Options Open is a super dark royal purple with super subtle shimmer. I had no idea this had shimmer until I started editing photos, that is how subtle it is. This is REALLY dark, but buttery and smooth in two coats.

Overall: I really like this collection! The formula is so nice, and everything I look forward to when applying their polish. The must haves for me are Celebrate The Sunset, How To Pick A Winner and Steal The Spotlight.

Availability: Duri.

Pricing: $5.00.

Now I wanna know! Have you tried any Duri polishes yet and which are your favs?

    Shame I can never find Duri where I live :(

    Steal the Spotlight looks great! I like the complexity of Keep Your Options Open, but this is a shade that I wouldn’t have the guts to wear on my fingers. Yup I’m that much of a wimp!

    Celebrate The Sunset, The Big Score, and Steal The Spotlight = YES

  • May 17, 2012

    I am immediately heading to their website to find How To Pick a Winner and any other pretties that might call my name. I’ve been really interested in this brand for a while but didn’t know where to buy them and then I forgot.

    Are these all available already?

    • May 17, 2012

      I believe so or if not, this month!

  • May 17, 2012

    Love them all!! Hope I’ll be able to reach them from where I live…
    I also would like to know how Celebrate The Sunset compares to OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender.

  • May 17, 2012

    Never heard of this brand. I like this collection, Im going to have to try!

    I only ever seem to hear about Duri from you but you’re right, they have some pretty fantastic shades! I’m really drawn to Lazy Days, How To Pick A Winner and The Big Score. Steal The Spotlight is really pretty too.

  • May 17, 2012

    These really look great! How to Pick a Winner and Steal The Spotlight are very tempting. And the price is great too!

    Keep Your Options Open is Da Bomb!!! But, actually, I think all over them are gorgeous. I wish there was a store around here that I could get these.

    If you are not wearing a top coat on these, and I don’t think you are, the shine on these polishes is over the top. Love!!!

    UM…YES, PLEASE! I haven’t tried Duri, but may need to! Celebrate the Sunset is my top pick. Lazy Days, for a mauve, is quite intriguing, as is How to Pick a Winner. I’m not quite as into the last three, but they still look great!

  • May 17, 2012

    Love Lazy Days and Steal the Spotlight; went to the website to order, and shipping is $12.90! :o( No thank you. What a disappointment!

  • May 17, 2012

    Now, that is just perfect!where can we find these product?

    • May 17, 2012

      It says on the post. :)

  • May 21, 2012

    I’m surprised at how much I like Steal the Spotlight and the Big Score, both a bit unusual for me. I like Lazy Days but I don’t think it’s “me”.

    You are one of the few bloggers who posts Duri swatches, please don’t ever stop. Duri has an incredible formula. The best, really.

    The mauve one is mine! Love mauve. Looks horrid on me, I just can’t stop myself from buying mauve.
