If there is something I look forward to and enjoy doing every week, it’s painting my nails. If you follow me on Instagram, I’m always sharing my nails and the fun things I do with them, it’s therapeutic. Sitting down, popping in a DVD (most of time it’s Ever After, Almost Famous or Moulin Rouge) and taking 30-40 minutes to relax and make my nails pretty. Whenever my nails are done, I feel like I can concur the world.
I love it when beauty brands make an effort to make the process (yes, there is a process ;)) of painting my nails easier, like a built-in topcoat into the nail polish. Painting your nails without a topcoat is a big no-no and if you want your color to look it’s best and not chip as fast, a topcoat is a must. It’s this reason, I’m a huge fan of COVERGIRL’s Outlast Stay Brilliant polishes. Not only are the colors great, but application is easy and there is no need for a topcoat. If you’re an avid nail polish collector, you know what I mean when I say application. Some brushes are too big, too small, grab too much polish or not enough polish, it’s a crazy cycle, but the brushes in the Outlast Stay Brilliant polishes are perfect. And of course, not needing a topcoat is my favorite part, I can lay down my base coat, put on a COVERGIRL polish, then on to nail art.
I tried 155 in Peek a boo pink, 175 Ever Reddy, 215 Smokey Taupe and 290 Constant Caribbean. If you look at the graphic above you can pretty much tell which is which. My favorite, was Constant Caribbean. I’m usually not a fan of blue hues as nail polish, but I stepped out of my box and went with this metallic option and it ended up being my favorite one.
