Duri kindly sent me their fall collection a couple months ago (sorry guys). It took me a while to get this post together, but I think I owed it to this collection to take my time and do it justice, you know? It’s called Primal Instincts; I think they were on the same wavelength as some other brands with the nature inspired theme! This is a super fun fall line up of polishes, they went full jewel-toned as opposed to dusty and muted. It’s composed of all the primary and secondary colors with a fall twist. All the polishes in this collections were cremes, totally fine with me, and I found the formulas superb. The last Duri collection I swatched had amazing cremes too, they have clearly mastered the formula. None of them took more than two coats (yes, even the yellow!) to reach full opacity and some of them only needed one. You really cannot ask for more.
OPI My Italian is a Little Rusty, 2 coats plus top coat
It’s the most wonderful tiiiiiiiiiime of the year…. no, it’s not Christmas yet, but it is FALL!!!!! Although 2020 has been a steaming pile of poo, one of the bright spots has been all the incredible fall and Halloween polishes that have been released this year. Well, not from my wallet’s perspective. Money may not be able to buy happiness, but nail polish and happiness are pretty much the same thing, sooooooo… all the fall polishes, please! I’m hoping to share a few of my favorites with y’all before the other holiday season starts, but with my current schedule of posting every two weeks, we may not fit as many in as in the past. But I would rather go for quality and we are starting off Fall 2020 with a banger! It’s from OPI’s Milan collection, which was pretty much made for me: I ended up getting 11 of the 12 polishes (thank you polishpick.com, no way could I have done that paying full price). This beautiful burnt orange rusty dirt color, My Italian is a Little Rusty, is the first of those 11 polishes I have worn. You guys KNOW I go insane for oranges and while this is definitely brown and not orange, it’s the orangey-ist brown out there and I adore it. The name is definitely a 5/5 too, maybe not specific to Milan but perfect for the hue!
