NOTD – Duri Night Before Christmas

By on December 24, 2008
in Duri, Holiday 2008, NOTD

Last Saturday we hosted an Un-Xmas Party, a party to celebrate with our friends without the pressure of decorations, gifts or any type of forced holiday cheer. We just wanted to have a good time with our favorite people. It was a blast of course and like any time my girlfriends come over, we eventually ended up in the polish room looking through my latest finds.

While digging through boxes one of the girls discovered a hidden gem that I had passed off at first glance, Duri Night Before Christmas. As you can see in the pic below it looks extremely glitter packed so I wrote it off as a Lippmann Superstar clone. Boy was I wrong. My friend asked to try on the color and with just one coat, it was glowing under the incandescent light. Right then and there, she proceeded to give herself a full mani and it looked stunning. For a girl that doesn’t like dark nail colors, she was mesmerized by Night Before Christmas so it seemed extremely apropos for my Christmas Eve NOTD.

Night Before Christmas has a berry base that becomes crimson with two coats. The shade is peppered with gold, bronze and red glitter that leaves a slight texture on the nails but it’s nothing that a coat of Seche Vite can’t fix. I showed it without top coat and as you can see, it doesn’t dry matte or rough like a lot of glitters tend to do.

Duri nail polishes retail for $5 and can be purchased directly through the Duri website. Right now they are offering a holiday promotion. Purchase their Holiday Special ($30) that includes Rejuvacote, Herbatherapy and Brush’n Go and you’ll receive 3 Free Polishes. The deal automatically comes with their most popular shades but you can request alternate colors in the comments section upon checkout.

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! What’s on your tips today?

    That looks like a pretty color. I’ve never heard of this brand before now. I might just have to hop on over to their website and check it out. Right now I’m sporting China Glaze Emerald Sparkle which I love. Its just so perfectly emerald and the glitter makes it the stunner it is. I normally don’t like most glitter polishes, but in Emerald Sparkle I adore it. Its just so gorgeous I can’t stop looking at it and neither could anyone else I was with tonight!

    Oh I LOVE that color on you. I, too am wearing China Glaze Emerald Sparkle. My BF specifically requested it for Christmas. He can’t stop looking at my nails, and neither can I! It’s such a distracting color, but in a great way. :) Merry Christmas!

    That shade is stunning on you! My xmas shade was China Glaze’s recent fall shade “Red Stallion”… I didn’t initially see it as a holiday color, but when I wore it this fall everyone said it reminded them of xmas, so here I am, wearing it during the holiays.
