Yay aren’t you glad I am finally posting some new nail swatches? 🙂
Thanks again for sticking around while I took some time off!
Today I’ve got the second half of Duri’s Paparazzi collection, this time for spring (the other part of this Paparazzi collection was for summer).
These colors are bright, vivid and very “spring-ish”, though I didn’t like them quite as much as the summer collection.
These are (almost) all what I would classify as shimmery metallics and the application was pretty great. I believe most were just two coats. A couple had very minor streaking, but not that bad.
Drama Queen is a pale, lemon yellow color with gold shimmer.Yay another yellow that looks good on me whoo hoo! For a yellow this applied surprisingly well, only very slight streaking, and I think that was more due to the metallic finish rather than the color. This was two coats.
Addicted To Fame is a bright orange/gold with yellow shimmer. Uh yeah, I like the concept of this color and loved it in the bottle, but this kind of orange and me don’t play nicely. It would look amazing on darker skin tones though. This was two coats and applied perfectly.
Oscar Party is a grass green with yellow shimmer. Hmm I was a little disappointed in this one. I wanted the green to be a little darker and slightly more saturated. I like it, but I don’t love it. This was two coats.
I Don’t Kiss And Tell is a deep orange with yellow shimmer. Now this is an orange I can wear and really like. I think this is my favorite one of this collection, and I’m not a huge orange fan. This applied particularly well and was two coats.
Fashion Police is a shimmery cornflower blue. This was the only one without a metallic finish. I like it, but again like Oscar Party, I wanted this to be deeper and more saturated. This was three coats as it was more sheer than all the others, and you can still see VNL.
Limo Ride is a copper/burnt orange with silver shimmer. This one had minor streaking issues, but nothing huge. I like it, but don’t love it on me. This was two coats.
Overall I think this is a pretty good spring collection and pretty color appropriate also. The formula of Duri polishes are almost always really great and the cost isn’t too steep either at $5.00 each. They are having a special right now if you buy 3 colors you get the 4th one free. Both this and the summer Paparazzi collection are available now on their website here.
What do you guys think about this collection?
