Mani Monday: Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant nail polishes

Today I've got 5 shades to show you from the new Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant* nail polish range (RRP $6.95). These polishes are meant to contain both a base coat and a top coat so you achieve perfectly glossy long lasting colour with one simple step. Overall I think the concept is great, especially for lazy people like me who hate the whole base/top coat process, but if you really want them to last a top coat is a must.

The colours left to right are:
  • Wine to Five - Deep wine creme. There was absolutely no staining when I swatched this shade which is great as colours like these are notorious for staining your nails if worn without a base coat. 
  • Ever Reddy - An orange based red creme. 
  • Tickled Pink - Beautiful bright fuchsia pink creme. Perfect spring shade. I'm wearing this shade right now and unfortunately after 2 days it's already chipped on the sides. 
  • Everbloom - Muted dusky pink creme. Loved it. I wore this one all of last week and only experienced minor chipping after about 4 days. 
  • Perma-pink - Pearl pale pink shade. I'm not a fan of pearl formulas as they end up very streaky on my nails. Though not as bad as some other pearls I've tried, I still experienced streakiness after 3 coats. 

Now for some swatches... The colours are in reverse order to the above and I'm wearing 2 coats without any base/top coats.

And I just had to show you this unedited/uncropped photo - my 10 month old son photobombing the shoot!

Have you tried these new nail polishes from Covergirl yet?

*PR Samples


  1. What a lovely collection of colours! I have tried "midnight Magic" and "Go-Go Mango". Midnight Magic is absolutely fantastic!

  2. I stumbled upon these for $2 at my local Big W recently so I picked up this gorgeous peach/orange colour. I absolutely love it and wish I bought more! It has lasted on my nails over 7 days before any chipping occurred which is impressive as I have very soft nails :-)

    1. $2 is a great price! I need to go to Big W see if they have any left as I wouldn't mind picking up some other colours. :)

  3. I haven't tried these polishes, but I definitely wanna pick up Everbloom! Thanks for the swatches love!

    1. Everbloom is so pretty, and it lasted quite well on my nails too :)

  4. I haven't tried them yet but there are some gorgeous colours that have caught my eye so it's only a matter of time for a nailiac like me!

  5. I haven't tried them, loved the muted pick shade
