I haven't written a review on here in awhile, but decided I needed to for these nail polishes. So I am slowly building my collection up again, about 4 months ago I did a purge and had to chuck out most of my nail polishes b/c they were just so old. I get my nails done every 2 weeks (I wear acrylics) so what I have been doing is buying a bottle of nail polish, having the salon use it on my nails and then I have it in my collection. That way too I can carry it in my bag in case I have a chip or wanna touch up until my next appt.

Anyways, for awhile I had been using Essie and OPI...and sidenote, IDK what is going on w/Essie these days, but I just don't think it's that good. So when that Star Wars collection for Cover Girl came out I noticed a gorgeous red, so I bought it and had my nails done with it. The gal who does my nails commented that it seemed to be a really good formula; it went on evenly and was just so shiny and smooth looking after two coats. It wore really well, no touch ups needed throughout the two weeks. I thought it was just a fluke, but then another color caught my eye, a really pretty sparkly purple/magenta color and I had the exact same results with it. Lasted for over two weeks, the finish/color never got "old" looking and went on like a dream.

So today, I decided to really put this to the test. I picked up a very light nude/pink color. Again, it went on very nicely, NO streakiness. After two coats it was so even and shiny and it is just gorgeous.

So overall, I think these Outlast nail polishes are some hidden gems. The nice thing too is that they are usually around $5-6 and there are some really unique colors in the line. These are my favorites, by far!

These little polishes are pretty good for a drugstore polish. I have a baby pink shade #155 it's shiny and looks good after about 3 coats.This was actually a steal at $1.50 seen it at Big Lots and thought I'd try it.I've also tried the baby blue but prefer this color cause it seems thicker.I think this shade would look great on most or all skintones.It does chip after a few days but most polishes do.

I purchased 125 Peaches n cream and let me start off by mentioning it was a GORGEOUS color. A perfect cross between peachy and pink. It was nice and glossy but it took quite a while to dry. The container makes the brush application a little difficult. After a couple of months I had to toss it away because it suddenly got very clumpy and sticky. I wish this nail polish would have worked for me because the color was amazing.

I'm reviewing the color 'Non-Stop Stone', it's a grey/mauvish crème that in my opinion is almost exactly the same shade as Rimmel's Steel Grey:
Here is Steel Grey:

I looked up swatches for Non Stop Stone, but they all look too true grey, whereas I see a more lavender/mauve tinge in my bottle, like Steel Grey.
Excellent application! The consistency of this polish is very smooth and easy to apply. It also dried easily.
The price was great, I bought it for $1.50 at Big Lots.
Would definitely buy more from this line, I already have Forever Festive (a red shimmer) and Ever Reddy (a red crème) both of which are amazing and incredibly easy to wear and apply.

Didn't really like this nail polish. I picked up the colour "Give 'em the Greenlight" from a clearance bin for under $2. It was a nice enough colour, just didn't suit me. I found the bottle design more difficult to use because the handle is so chunky, the narrower ones found on most other brands are much better. The formula was so-so. It looked a little bit streaky, but with a couple of coats you could make it look decent. Honestly, it might have looked this way more due to the design of the brush than any fault of the formula. I just found it unusually awkward.
Also, I'm not usually bothered by scents like some people are, but a little while after applying, my nails still had a gross kind of smell to them when my hands were anywhere near my face. I took it off not long after, so I can't give any input into how long lasting it is.
I'm glad I tried it when it was on clearance, because regular price is almost $6, and there are lots of other polishes for less or equal price that I think are a lot better than this.

Pros: Dried quickly, lots of colours
Cons: Awkward brush, lingering smell, not worth the price

I'm reviewing the colour Blue Hawaiian.

This is a fairly middle of the road polish. A slightly grey-toned blue creme. My favourite aspect of the polish is the coverage. It's opaque in two coats, which I appreciate.

The dry time on this guy is on the longer side, remaining tacky to the touch for a little while after applying, so a quick-dry topcoat is recommended. The brush on this one, at least the bottle I have, is a tad on the stiff side, which leads to streaking if you're not careful. The colour itself is nice, but there's nothing about it that really makes it stand out, as I've seen similar colours from a huge variety of brands. Wear time is again, average. I start to see tipwear after 2 days, chipping after about 4.

This polish is wholly mediocre. It's not bad, and not fantastic. I'd buy from this line again if I found them on a really good sale, but wouldn't pay full retail price, especially since the colour selection isn't exactly unique.

Emerald Blaze is a beautiful green/bronze/purple. It's very shiny and you don't get any brush streaks. I never thought much of the Cover Girl brand (blushes and eye shadows were part of my early teen years) as a grown up make up line to take seriously. Now I know their nail polishes are wonderful. The Emerald Blaze color stood out on the drugstore shelf and the price was not bad just to try it out. My fave drugstore polish is Revlon Top Speed, for opacity and wear time, but I will definitely check out more Cover Girl polishes. Affordable and quality product. ***a great base for Emerald Blaze would be OPI's UhOh Roll Down The Window, for extra oomph.

I have the Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Tickled Pink, a very typical, almost generic, true pink shade. I liked that it was called nail "gloss" because although I'm no nail junkie per se, I do enjoy the salon and typically get acrylic enhancements (I know, so bad!) and I appreciate shiny, high-gloss nails. It's beautiful to me. So I gave this a go, mainly for pedi purposes. It worked just like a polish should, it's nothing of super high calibre and didn't change my life or make angels sing or anything. Just coated my toes in a opaque wash of pink in 2 coats, and I sealed it with a very inexpensive clear top coat (Broadway) and it looked fine! Not terrific, but fine. :) gets the bare minimum done at a bare minimum price. You (should) know what (and what NOT) to expect from CG. I would repurchase a different shade, but I don't replace or purchase polish very often at all.

I bought this on whim with my bestie when we were in New York at this store called Duane Reade. Gracie Gold wears red nail polish all the time and so I bought it cause she looks so great and put together all the time. I love it! The quality is muh better than I thought it would be. It does chip but what drugstore product nail polish does not?
