Duri - Kingdom of Shadows

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!  Happy Sunday! What a busy weekend this has turned out to be.  Hope you guys are getting more rest than I am.

Today I have a Duri polish to share with you.  I'm really loving this brand.  Kingdom of Shadows is difficult to describe.  The best description I could come up with was a deep berry jelly with lots of holographic shimmer.  On the nail, it looks almost black at times, but it's so complex and that's what I love so much about it.

The formula is pretty good.  The first coat was streaky.  You also need to be careful and wait for it to dry to avoid balding.  I used three coats, but could have probably gotten away with two if I was more careful with the application.  In the pics, I used no base or top coat.

This reminds me of the sky at night.  I'm not sure where the name Kingdom of Shadows comes from.  I would call it Midnight Sky.  Either way, I think it's a stunning polish.

What do you think of Kingdom of Shadows?  Your type of polish?

    1. I wonder if it's a dupe. Too bad I don't have the Orly to compare it to.

  14. I love that hidden specialness. I wish Duri was more readily available since they do produce some pretty cool colors.
