Polishes - COVERGIRL - Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/27/2015

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 …Read more

Jan/25/2013

I gave it an overall rating of 4 because the color is out of this world. However, I would not purchase it again because there are other metallics out there that wear better.

We're all familiar with the essie brush--short, thin. It works well for this formula on the first coat. I thought I might get away with just one coat, but I did two. On the 2nd coat I wished the brush were …

the world does not need another streaky sheer. alas, that's just what we get with "pale cashmere." gorgeous color, terrible application.
i have not tried any of the other colors, just this one. bah. i should have known. revlon sheers are as crappy as essie's when it comes to streakiness.
this lasts about 3 days on me, tops. noticeable tip wear after day 2. to be …

I went to the drugstore looking for Revlon's Midnight Haze (from what I could tell on a youtube video) and they didn't have it, but the new L'Oreal Project Runway display was out AND stocked. I have seen these at other stores, completely picked over & empty, so I was glad to see what all the colors actually are. Raven's Strength looked like a close enough match, a silvery …Read more

in my hunt for the perfect nude, i found this shade. still haven't found my hg nude, but this polish is PERFECT as a "my nails but better" color. actually on me it appears to have no color but it does lend a very clean tinge to my nails. it's "clear but better" because it has just enough color to enhance your natural nails. this is perfect if you are tired of wearing …Read more

i love the color of this polish. it's a warm brown that looks great with a tan. for some reason it reminds me of the '70s. i really don't care for this formula, tho. this is the only complete salon manicure polish i've used, and if they're all like this, bleah. i won't buy anymore of them. the first coat is a bit watery and the second coat is a bit too splotchy & …Read more

May/29/2011

in my search for "thee" hg sheer ivory color (some people say "nude") i decided to try this color, based on the praise of the brand as a whole. RUBBISH. i wish my sally's beauty supply would just stop selling the orly line altogether because of my hatred for this one color. (i do love their "rage" polish, however; it is magnificent.) powder puff could be …Read more

i would not buy this polish again, simply because the world is FILLED with crappy, streaky sheer nail polishes. there will always be another one to waste my money on. this is such a beautiful, pearly, shiny color, however. it's just like all other essie polishes, wears well, shiny, whatever...but because it's a sheer, the application is streaky and crap. you either have to have the …Read more
