Covergirl Outlast Nail Polish: Shades of Holiday (and a Little Art)

Covergirl Nail Holiday 2014

Covergirl Outlast has some shades I can make a little holiday art with! Yes friends, you heard that right! A little art – from me!

Often overlooked, this mass market brand of polish is very, very good. I mean it’s Covergirl, owned by P&G -- they pump a lot of dough into research and development so really, it’s no surprise the product is rock solid. Highly pigmented, with nice formulas, excellent level, and good brushes, the only drawback is the cap. It doesn’t pop off so you gotta polish with a square handle thingy – not my fave, but not such a hardship either. Wait! Sue tells me the caps do pop off! You gotta work 'em but they come off! Yay!!

CoverGirl Outlast Snow Storm Polish

Covergirl Outlast Give Em the Greenlight Polish

Covergirl Outlast Polish Forever Festive

So what have you just seen? Well, it’s Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss and it requires no top coat. Yep, you heard that right. Nothing I showed you there has topcoat and it’s all stupendously shiny and beautiful. You can get your hands on this stuff (and some of this stuff from Spring 2014) pretty much all over the place and prices will vary but it's $6 at and $2.99 at (select shades available). For all the Covergirl info you can handle, I invite you to visit

And just because I can, please enjoy this shot of one of my other favourite Covergirl Outlast shades.
