This is the BEST nail polish I have ever used, hands down!! It lasted five days and only two nails chipped. The other nails didn't even have tip wear and I'm talking about my hands...not my feet. Those are still going strong.
Other nail polishes, even the best of the best, chip or peel or have minor tip wear on the same day I paint my nails or the following day, no exaggerations.
The application is smooth but I apply two thin coats and let them dry at least two to five minutes in between.
I use Beauty Secrets base coat and Mineral Fusion top coat.

Cover Girl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Polish is a drugstore brand of polish that comes in a variety of shades, many of which are spot-on dupes to some of the higher-end polishes. I picked up three (Midnight Magic, Constant Caribbean, and Eternal Oceans) to start my Cover Girl collection and to see if the formula had improved since I last used this brand years ago. I love the new square bottles even though the cap is a little harder to grip. (However, I understand this comes off to reveal a round cap underneath). As to the formula, I had the same issue with all three polishes that I bought - sticky, gloopy, tip pulling, streaky mess. However, I was DETERMINED to make this work because I loved the color I started with (Midnight Magic.) I've found that the key to Cover Girl polish is thinner, thinner, and MORE THINNER!!! I added two droppers to each bottle, shook them up, and then they applied like butter!! The difference was amazing!! I still had streaking issues on the first coat but was able to achieve bottle color on all three polishes that I tried at three coats with no streaking after the first coat. Drying time was very quick at about four minutes between each coat. I had no chipping issues at five days with a top coat and Seche Vite. All in all, for a drugstore brand and some thinner, these are great polishes that I would definitely buy again.

Nice colours but chips faster than any other polish I own including uber-cheapies. It chips the same day I apply it, even with a top coat. It is WAY overpriced and not self-levelling so it is harder to apply. Would never buy again.

I've used this polish in 5 shades: Constant Carribean, Forever Festive, Pink Lady (Glosstini), Pina Colada (Glosstini), and Go Go Mango (I think that is the coral one I have). I love the first two shades -- go on easily in two coats with lots of shine - lovely, almost metallic colors. The Glosstini's I tried were streaky and I had to do 3 coats. Still, I love the color of Pink Lady on me. The Pina Colada and Mango were just wrong for my skin tone, I think.
I bought these because I don't have the time or patience to do bottom and/or top coats. So I can polish them quickly and yet they last a few days. (I'm very hard on my nails.) If I was willing to do a bottom/top coat then I would probably use another brand of nail polish with more interesting colors.
But, I like these and keep buying them. I think they dry to a nice finish. I seem to have better luck with the darker, bolder shades.

I wont buy this product again . I love cover girl make-up so I was happy to try this nail polish ( Cover girl outlast Stay Brilliant nail Gloss ) . I felt it was alittle over priced ( $4.89 ) but I was willing to give it a try . Well it started chipping in less than 24 hours , so it does not " outlast " . I even gave it a second chance , nope , again in less than 24 hours it was chipping .

I'm very dissapointed, this polish had great reviews however it didn't work for me. It started to chip the next day. I really wanted it to work. I buffed my nails before applying and applied two coats.

I spotted these in a sale bin for $3, &having heard good things about these, I picked up 300 vio-last (a cream violet) &140 pink-finity (a ballet pink).
I haven't had the chance to properly test them out yet but based on the swatches I tried in stores, they're pretty good ! With vio-last, you can get away with 1 coat no problem, no streaks (but I would still paint two coats anyways) while pink-finity is streaky &definitely needs two coats.
I'll update in a few days after I properly do my nails &see how long before they chip !

I love this product! The consistency is so nice and smooth, the sheen is very glossy even without a topcoat, and the pigmentation is great! I got this in crushed berries and forever fawn! Crushed berries is a great magenta with red notes with a lot of purple. And forever fawn is a fenomenal nude! I haven't noticed any staining of the nail. I do use a base and a top coat with this polish. I like the square packaging, it's easy to hold the bottle. But I don't like the brush handle because it is slightly annoying to use. But the brush is nice.
Overall, this polish is great! Very easy to work with and amazing pigmentation!

This nail polish is amazing! I got the "Peaches & Cream" and I absolutely love it! I didn't thought it was going to be so shiny, and I just love the result. Although it claim to not need a too coat, you should always use one to seal the polish. I really disagree with others about it staining the nails, bcuz it didn't stain mine (maybe it's the base coat they used) overall I do recommend this polish. Although the colors are limited, but it's formula and pigmentation is fabulous!

I was surprised by how easy this was to work with and that it did not budge once it was on. I use polish from all price ranges and brands. My nails are always polished. I was away and needed a cheap bottle for a few days and bought the mini sample for 3 dollars. Love it and may buy more. Very surprised by the quality. Love how pigmented it is. Bought it at Target. I usually wear Essie and china glaze brands the most for comparison.
