duri Systems

Press Sample

 It's hard to believe that I started this blog 4,271 days ago. That's almost 12 years! I do believe I'm one of the longest (semi) active nail blogs left in the United States. One of my favorites from the beginning was duri. I used their Rejuvacote Nail Growth System for years - sometimes as just a base coat, sometimes as the full nail growth system. Much has changed in twelve years and duri has expanded their line quite a bit!

What I used back in the 2010s is now been rebranded as Rejuvacote 1 ($14) but the process is still the same. Apply one coat to clean, prepped nails, you can add 2 coats of duri nail lacquer if wished, and then add a coat of Rejuvacote 1 as a top coat. Each day, add one more coat of Rejuvacote until you reach day 7. On that day, remove all your nail polish and start over with clean, prepped nails and repeat.

The in-house chemists at duri came out with Rejuvacote 2 ($14) for those who have sensitive nails, as this is formulated without DBP, toluene and formaldehyde. This is a great option for those who are coming off gels, acrylics and powder manicure. These products aren't BAD but the removal can be very damaging if done improperly, leading to sensitive nails.

I also have Miracote Quick Dry Through Top Coat ($10) here. You can use this with your Rejuvacote and it is vegan and does not contain DBP, toluene or formaldehyde. This gloss finish is fast drying and non-yellowing.

The Drop'n Go Polish Drying Drops ($10) are a new product to me. To use, apply your polish and top coat as normal, wait one minute, and then place one or two drops of Drop'n Go over your nail. I am going to be testing this one during my swatch fests as I like to always show my manicures with base and top coat.

Finally today I have the Herbatherapy Cuticle Treatment Drops ($10) which is a cuticle oil with green thyme stems, natural oils and herb extracts. If you're on TikTok, be sure to follow my friend Sigourney Nunez and her reminders to use cuticle oil daily. It truly is a hand saver, especially during all these hand washing and hand sanitizing times. The thyme reminds me of bread oil at restaurants so that was a fun scent memory.
