NEW! Duri Cosmetics "The Power Of Pink" Collection For October/Breast Cancer Awareness (Nail Polish Pictures & Review)

Press Sample


Duri has a new collection of pink nail polishes  out to help raise funds & awareness for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Here is a snippet from their press release with more info:

"Duri Cosmetics is proud to introduce their newest and pinkest collection, The Power of the Pink, in time and recognition of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Ten percent of sales of the new collection on duri.com will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCFR).  
“Wearing the color pink has become the universal expression of support for breast cancer, and what better way to wear that support than with a collection of powerful pink nail polish hues,” says Duri Cosmetics Founder and Head Chemist Faina Ritz.  Duri’s The Power of the Pink is a collection of beautiful and inspiring pink hues for women to show off their support of family, friends and the 3 million U.S. women who have undergone treatment. Ritz continues, “If football players can garner national headlines by wearing pink socks in October, women raising their hands and displaying nails painted in a great pink hue can certainly garner greater and continued awareness.”
Although Breast Cancer Awareness is celebrated in October, it is important to maintain awareness year round. Duri plans on keeping the collection and donation program on site and available after its launch this October.
The Power of Pink Collection includes 4 pink-empowered hues: Pinky Promisea shimmery baby pink with a satin-shine finish; Pink Positive Thoughtsa medium pink with micro gold sparkles and high gloss finish; I Pink I Can a perfect salmon-pink shade with ultra high gloss; Pink Warrior - a zesty metallic-like hot pink shade loaded with tons of shimmer and sparkle with a high gloss finish."


Check out the colors here!

Press Sample

Hi friends! Yes, I know we are still *technically* in Summer right now, but I got all giddy inside when the new OPI Halloween collection landed at my door. First, I love Halloween. Second, this collection is Peanuts themed (as in, Charlie Brown!). I always love seeing the different collabs OPI does and this one is adorable! Check out Peanuts by OPI:


 Good Grief!-
 bright & sunny 'Charlie Brown' yellow :-) I'm wearing 2 layers here:

Who Are You Calling Bossy?!?-
 perfect black cream (2 layers shown):

To Be Or Not To Beagle
multi-colored & black confetti glitter in a clear base (shown here over both the previously shown colors):

Where's My Blanket???-
 pale orange, yellow, and black glitters in a clear base (shown over 'Who Are You Calling Bossy?!?'):

Here is "Where's My Blanket" on it's own on my thumb so you can see the black specs better!

This fun Halloween set launches (along with a mini set & nail decals) in the beginning of September! Will you be picking any of them up? I love that these aren't your typical, run-of-the-mill "black & orange" Halloween shades. Any 'Great Pumpkin' fan will love the theme behind them too!
