Well well well…look who is joining the reindeer games! CoverGirl did a little something that surprised us all and launched some beautiful new polishes. I’m almost positive that they had nail polishes back in the 90’s but I’m not sure if I dreamt them up or if they actually existed. Either way, me thinks it was a good idea for them to get up on the obsession that many of us have with nail polish.
Good decision, CG.
The brand has a good 45 polishes that they’ve already launched and more will be making their ways to stores soon. I got my hands (haha, literally) on 4 of the polishes and wanted to show ‘em off for you.
Just a note: You can get these anywhere CoverGirl products are sold. I’ve been seeing them at CVS and Walgreens store locations for weeks now.
Frosted Forever is a pale pink cream that almost looks white and it took a whopping 4 coats to get an opaque finish. But that’s usually the case with polishes like this. It’s a beaut. I found it to be super shiny without a top coat.
Coy Coral – ohhhhh, it’s another coral. Coral polishes are actually growing on me and I really like the peachiness of this one.
Golden Opportunity is a subtle gold foil that has a silvery hue to it. Depending on how the light hits it, it shifts from cool to warm.
Wine Stain is a dark burgundy creme and man, I don’t wear burgundy polishes enough but I should because this one is just fabulous. It has a squishy consistency and shines beautifully without a top coat.
These are just 4 of the 44 polishes that CoverGirl has currently developed. If you spy the stand in stores, you’ll see that they have a ton of different finishes; cremes, glitters, foils, shimmers…and I’m lovin’ them all. They are priced right at $5.49 and since CoverGirl products regularly go on sale in drugstores, you can easily get them cheaper.
Performance-wise, I would say that these are pretty stellar. I didn’t have any problems with the wand or formula. I found that all 4 polishes tended to be on the thin side so while you can get away with 2 coats, I think you’ll achieve a much better finish applying 3 coats of polish. And I can’t forget the shine factor. CoverGirl says that these polishes don’t need a base or top coat and I agree. I didn’t feel the need to wear a top coat with any of these polishes because they’re just so shiny. I haven’t pushed their longevity yet but then again, it’s hard for me to wear any polish for more than 3 days.
But so far…I’m impressed! I can’t wait to scoop up more of these babies. Have you spotted these polishes in store yet?
