I got this in Megawatt Mauve. First, the color is not good with my skintone - a nude that's too warm, a dirty peach-beige (I thought 'mauve' is a cool, pink-based color?!?). The second problem for me was the smell, even after the np dried: a strong chemical odor, similar to Revlon's Colorstay np, which took more than 6 hours to go away despite multiple handwashings. I would only wear this on my toes, but definitely not in this color!

I bought "Constant Caribbean" and I really like the color and the quality of nail polish. I only did one coat and it was opaque enough (until i got in the sun and realized that a second coat would make them a little better). Hasn't chipped yet and I've been using my nails plenty!

Got this in Grapevine, and was pleasantly surprised by it. Not only is the color gorgeous but it stayed shiny and chip-free for 4 days. (I did use Orly Bonder basecoat, even though this polish supposedly has one built in). Anyway, this is a winner in my book.

Wow! I am writing this after applying it for the first time. I purchased toasted almond. This polish is amazing. The brush is small which I thought would make it difficult to apply but no, one coat simply seemed to melt into the shape of the nail - super smooth application and dried within a couple of minutes! I have just topped it up with a quick dry topcoat. I guess I will see how long it lasts! Even if only a few days.... the few minutes it takes to apply makes it worth it. Excellent buy.

I bought just two of these, Wine to Five and Peaches & Cream. They both stain my nails after I took the polish off. Peaches was very pretty on my hands, used a base coat (always!) and a top coat. Minor tip wear after 3 days but it turned color which was weird (to me) and took it off on the fourth day, not expecting the yellow tinge on all my nails! Ugh! Looked like I got a disease! Wine to Five is a gorgeous wine red and it gave me five days before it chipped, this stained so bad it took almost a week before the cherry color went away. Never buying these again. Sinful Colors here I come!

One coat! I repeat one coat! I have the coral silk and the mint. The coral was alot better than the mint but both were very easy to apply. Great formula its very smooth my nails dried very quickly compared to other brands and the color is just fantastic. It did chip within a day but I didn't use a clear coat over top. Another thing a really liked is it comes off easily I wasn't scrum bing my nail trying to remove the polish.

Edit II: My review for this went from a 5 to a 3 and now.. 1. Why? Because this polish stained my freaking nails. It looks like I took a seafoam highlighter and colored my nail with it. Pure garbage. Ugh!
Edit: Had to down my rating on this, it chips immediately after drying and it just looks weird. How this has a topcoat is beyond me, it's pretty opaque and matte for a nailpolish. Guess you get what you pay for. Crappy. Going to paint my toes and return.
Review for Mint Mojito
WOW. This is now my favorite nail lacquer. If only Cover Girl could do as well with their makeup. I never thought I would embrace the bold colors trend of spring 2013. Mostly I was into sapphire blue and coral shades, but I was super (still love them) into pastels before this, especially lavender and mint.
This turquoise shade looks so good with anything and everything, from black to orange to denim to patterns.
Aside from the color, the formula is wonderful. Of course gel nails are the standard of perfect nails now, but if you're on a budget I would recommend this over even Essie and OPI. This is the first lacquer I've been able to apply literally laying in bed. The trend of making the cap the same shape of the body is one I'm happy with. It's aesthetically pleasing and makes things easier. The formula is so smooth, perfectly fluid, not thick and prone to indentations nor so thin that you need to apply two coats. I want so many colors, and I hope more of them are introduced.

I got mine in vio-last and it is amazing!! The bottle is chanel shaped and is very opaque (you can get away with one coat). What i really like is that it has built in topcoat (not really sure how that works) and it is SUPER shiny, almost like you've got seche vite top coat/gel nails. I love shiny creme nails and i never had nail polish as shiny as this (i am a nail polish hoarder so obviously ive tried many brands).
It's also cheap from Priceline. I got mine for 6 bucks, and compared to revlon polishes theyre like 15 vs 6.
drying time is not satisfactory. im an impatient person and i like my nail polish very fast drying.

I'll never buy this again. I let it dry for 2 hours and it still wasn't dry. When I took it off, it stained my skin so bad. This stuff just sucks. Very bad.

I have this in Lasting Love. It's a nice clean, neutral, creamy red shade. It applied very opaque upon first coat, but I added a second coat for good measure. I applied my normal base and top coat and the polish still chipped within 2 days of wear. I don't dislike this range, but I found the colors to be ordinary and generic so I won't be going back for another. Also, didn't even come close to the claim that it lasts for 7 days without chipping.

I am a nail polish junkie and I am meticulous when it comes to doing them myself. I had been having gel polish manicures done a lot because they last so long but I wanted to save some time and money so I grabbed one of these to try out. I got Silver Linings, which is a very pale almost lavender grey. This polish is supposed to be good in one coat with a built in topcoat but I think polish always needs 2 coats and a top coat. I skipped my usual base coat and the first coat went on pretty opaque, especially for such a pale color. the second coat perfected it and then I used my standard Butter London top coat. Perfection! It lasted from Thursday to Wednesday with almost no tip wear. On Wenesday it sort of started self destructing and all chipping off but I consider that really good wear. I just bought 3 more!

WOW... this product was far better than I was expecting it to be! All of the colors I've tried so far (Mojito Mint, Lasting Love and Tickled Pink) have been extremely pigmented -- I only needed one coat, which really surprised me when it came to the light mint! It's not streaky or runny or chunky, and the polish dries and hardens very quickly (extra great for me, I usually always end of getting my polish mushed before it hardens, but not with this polish). The polish dried glossy and hard, it wasn't filmy like some cheaper "Pure Ice" nail polishes I've tried have been.
I adore this nail polish and I can't wait to try more colors. I hope they keep this around for a long time!

So far the polishes I've tried from this line are AWESOME. Super pigmented, one-coaters, no streaks, great wear. I've written individual reviews for the colors I've tried so far, but wanted to add a review here to show some overall love. ;) They do claim to not need a topcoat-but IMO if you want a super high shine, they do. I always use one so for me that's not a negative. The color range is a bit lacking right now, but I'm hoping with time they will expand it. I've found great deals on them at CVS and Kroger. These are great! Go get some!! :D

Had to write a review for this polish. I got the color Smokey Taupe and the polish has lasted 6 days with no chipping and close to no tip wear. It literally looks as if I have just applied it. The bottle is a nice classy square shape and the brush is good. Color applies evenly with two coats. I will definitely be looking into getting other colors. EDIT: Wore this again and am still impressed by the longevity of the polish. I applied on Sunday and it is now Friday and there is still no tip wear and most polishes by now have already started to show wear and need to be removed.

I love this polish! I like to paint my nails, but always hated dealing with touch ups. Most polishes are so thick I could feel them and wanted to bite my nails. I am a mommy and live on a farm. This polish lasts, hardest to chip. First color I got was reliable red, it is a pink red. Today I picked up lingering spice and golden opportunity. Can't wait to try them!

I have this polish in lav-endure. Really like the color but not the formula. It somehow manages to be streaky and gloppy at the same time. The square bottle cap is awkward to hold while painting.
edited to increase my rating because this color has now become my favorite - it's still streaky/gloppy during the first coat and acts up if I try to put a shiny top coat on it but it lasts longer than my other nail polishes and doesn't take as long to build up opacity. love it and i have bought other colors!

I cant even believe how good this Cover Girl Outlast Polish is. I got the new teal-ish color, which looks beautiful on but the color is not important here. What is important is that this stuff went on like a dream, glossy as can be, lasted a week and then I took it off because I was bored, not because it looked ragged. I hope they come out with a lot more colors because I'd be happy not to spend so much on OPI which to me seems inferior to this. But they have more color choices. (see above, I bore easily!). The top of the bottle did not bother me a bit. And the brush was really good.

I love these polishes. Picked them up in these shades:
"Peek a boo pink" - baby pink that is pretty sheer with purple/silver shimmer running through formula.
"Wine to five" - gorgeous deep red/berry color that looks so classy and gorgeous. This color would look good on any skintone! Looking at the bottle, color reminded me of revlon's super lustrous "black cherry" lipstick.
Formulas for these polishes are smooth and easy to work with. With a good top coat, I can get away with at least 5-7 days wear before it chips. I don't care for the big, square handle. For one of my polishes, you can't screw the cap back on straight so it looks crooked. Other than that, I would definitely repurchase "wine to five" and check out other shades!

Ok, I bought the "Vio-LAST" and loved the consistency. I am an art teacher, so I have my hands in everything, plus constantly washing them. I was so impressed with the staying quality and the color shine! I used a base coat but then read that I didn't have to! Wow! I have hundreds of nail polish brands from high to low end and love these. I went the next day to get a few more colors! How easy it was to remove as well! Not like a gel polish soak, just so easy came right off with acetone remover! Now I have a new color on and it is strong feeling and solid. Quite like a gel feeling. I love the colors, very unusual and fun. Good product, I will be using this a lot !!!!!!!

This is a pretty good lasting nail polish. I got a 5 day week without chipping. I bought the color Smokey Taupe but it looked a murky purple in the store lighting and does on as well. It seemed a bit thicker than other polishes. I got mine at Rite-Aide for $5.99 with a coupon that covered $5.49 which is the average price for most stores. The cap is awful though, the outer square shape actually came off from the screw cap underneath so I just tossed it.
I have since bought Forever Festive and this is a great long lasting deep red with very faint micro shimmer. Also bought Lingering Spice which is a warm red you'd find in nature and is a great choice if you'd like to try a red but don't want a primary color red. I have since bought the Vio-last which is great also. The only bad one I bought was the lightest peach shade went on streaky and dragged. Maybe it is how they formulate the lighter shades I don't know since most I bought were medium to dark.
