Why We Love Duri Nail Polish

Few things say ‘I’ve got my act together’ quite like perfectly manicured nails. We love, love, love nail polish and try to sport as many shades as possible. What we most certainly do not love, is chemical-laden colours that are created with cruelty. They’re no good for anyone, not our hands and nails and especially […]
