Duri Cosmetics Nail Party

Follow me on Instagram! amberlehman

I could not have been more excited when Duri Cosmetics asked me to try out their new Spring nail polish colors.  Y'all might remember a couple years back when I decided I was gonna be a girl who always painted her nails.  (Well, I've kept it up like a champ.)  I am now on my second color of the Duri Spring 2013 collection, "The Showstopper", for the week and I am LOVING it.  All the colors are fabulous, and since I got a special preview, they aren't on the site to buy yet, but I will let you know when they are!  We all felt the polish was pretty durable, and my favorite thing is that they are really bright, and the color is not wussy.  I know that's a bad way to describe it.  But in other words, it doesn't take three coats!  They also have one of allure magazine's favorite nail strengtheners, Rejuvacote, which we all used as a base coat.  I'm going to keep using this on my weak nails to see if it helps strengthen them.

Hey, and might I also recommend getting all your girl friends together and having a nail painting party?  That's what I did, and it was SO fun.  I put together a little champagne bar.  Yep, CHAMPAGNE. BAR. Champagne + lots of mixers you could add, complete with a do-it-yourself menu.  Then we all tried the colors around my living room coffee table with snacks.  Bless his heart, Matt ran upstairs like his butt was on fire to get away from all the estrogen.  He said the last thing he wanted to be was Paul Rudd's character in "I Love You, Man."  Remember him?  Always wanting to hang out with Rashida Jones' friends and her friends were like, your husband needs to get some guy friends.  Yeah, so Matt watched sports and probably did other manly stuff upstairs like push-ups.

Snacks 'n' Polishes

See how much fun we're having?  You need to do it.

What's not to love when there's cheese involved?

The finished product!  Aren't those colors AMAZING!!  Something for everyone, I say.
