Cover Girl Outlast Forever Festive
I've been doing some thinking lately about how I could improve my blog and FB page for all of you. I also thought about how I could possibly get noticed by some companies or indie makers to hopefully be able to review polish for them in the future. Not that I'm in this for free products, although that would be a nice bonus, this is the level of quality I'm striving for. This led me to think about what Id like to see in a review. So today I have for you my first ever full review of a nail polish.
Like many of you I've walked past the Cover Girl nail polish display at Target many many times. I always stop and look but never purchased.... until Forever Festive caught my eye. Who doesn't love a great red right?
Cover Girl states "Dare to go topless with our new nail polish formula that combines a base coat, high gloss color, and a chip-resistant top coat in one simple step." It also states on their website that you can get a full weeks wear from this polish. So I figured I'd test this theory. I have to add that I am harder on my hands than the average person. I spend my days at work opening cardboard boxes and reaching into small fittings bin. I'm lucky if I can get 2 days wear out of a normal polish before it chips.
Feeling brave I applied red nail polish without a base coat. (really hoping I don't regret that later.) I have to say that the application of this polish was a dream. It went on smooth and even without a single streak. The square cap is even comfortable to hold. I was a little worried about dry time since I didn't use a quick dry top coat but within 5 or 6 minutes my nails were dry and glossy. This picture was taken 10 minutes after application.
After 3 days I started to notice some slight tip wear and I do mean slight. The polish still had a nice shiny finish and so far has me impressed.
Finally, after 6 days I had some chipping start to happen. But hey 6 days on my nails is uber impressive! Since it was a semi-decent day out I took this picture outside so the color could be viewed in natural light. It gives you a truer representation of what the color really looks like.
I have to say that I will be adding more of these polishes to my collection as colors continue to catch my eye. I am so glad that I finally purchased this polish. Its such a great red color landing somewhere between fire engine red and vampy red. Now back to that fear of stained nails I had...
There was no reason for that fear at all! Zero staining!!!!! Removal was the easiest I've ever had. I used the "foil method" without the foil and with one swipe all the polish was gone.
Covergirl Outlast polishes can be found at Target, Walgreens, Wal-mart, and K-mart. I got mine for $5.44 but the price may be different in different areas. So what are your thought on Cover Girl outlast polish? Would you purchase one for yourself?
