Duri Nail Polish
Duri: Paparazzi, Celebrity Scandal, Bombshell

Duri’s Paparazzi Collection includes twelve shades for spring/summer: Drama Queen (gold), Oscar Party (green), Fashion Police (blue), Addicted to Fame (orange), I Don’t Kiss and Tell (red), Limo Ride (deep red), Bombshell (bright red), Divas Only (brown), Paparazzi (deep green), Gossip Exclusive (brown), Tabloid Rumors (dark taupe), and Celebrity Scandal (silver). Each Duri shade retails for $5.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.

I found the formula to be on the thinner side, but it didn’t seem to impact application or the intensity of the colors.  Paparazzi and Bombshell applied smoothly, though Paparazzi had some brush strokes coming through.  Celebrity Scandal has a very different finish/texture compared to the other two I tried, so it had a rougher finish, but a thick layer of top coat solved that.

  • Paparazzi is a deep emerald green with lighter green shimmer. This shade only needs two coats, but I went with three to see if I could eliminate some of the brush strokes lingering in the application.
  • Celebrity Scandal is a shimmered tin-foil color–it definitely reminds me of foil, but it has a slight shimmer to it. It’s not entirely smooth on the nail, and I found that by itself, it dried to a semi-matte finish. The shimmer/glitter applied pretty evenly, and I found three coats was the most optimum level for total coverage.
  • Bombshell is a ruby shimmered cherry red. I found that I needed three coats for this, just to make totally rich and opaque, but two coats came close to complete coverage.

P.S. — I’m totally amused that the three I tried look more like a Christmas set than part of a summer collection!

    these are such pretty colors but they seem to be so christmas-y!

  2. Are you not giving grades anymore?

    That silver color is AWESOME. It looks like you covered your nails in aluminum foil. But you’re right. It’s totally a Christmas collection.

    • There is a grade…? Sorry, I’m not sure what you mean – it says B+!

      These are only three of twelve shades, but together (and alone) they look like Christmas, but the collection definitely doesn’t look like that when taken as a whole!

    Um, can you say ESSIE? A private label deal, I’m willing to bet.

    I think the silver color would look fantab on tan toes!

  6. Celebrity Scandal reminds me of Zoya Trixie. It’s one of my favorites. And I love Paparazzi! Gorgeous green.

    I love these!! On the website, Divas Only and Oscar Party definitely look like duochromes, which I have been trying to find. And Celebrity Scandal is stunning! It seems the site has a Spring Special where you can but 3 get one free (so 4 polishes for only $15!) That is an incredible value. Thank you so much for this post!!
