Cover Girl Glosstinis Nail Polish

Summer manicures  got more fun and easy with Cover Girl Glosstinis. These come in the brand's very good Outlast formula in 9 tropical inspired shades. The best part ? They are minis and very cute.

Each Glossini is just over 2 inches tall ( that's the new CG  shadow pot next to them) making them perfectly portable for painting poolside, beachside  or touching up on vacay as well as just taking up less space in the makeup bag.

If you haven't tried  Outlast , these are top coat, color and base coat in one and have a wear time of up to a week. I got good wear from my other ones , not quite a week  before some tip wear etc, but I am hard on my nails generally.  I love the idea of not needing  base and top coats ,  but  I still usually end up doing top coat on the 2nd day . I have noticed that Glosstinis have more shine than the previous ones I've used.

Shades shown are Pink Lady and Sangria.  Pink Lady is more sheer, Sangria less so, but 2 coats are needed with both.  I am looking forward to  a full mani with Sangria. It's a bright Summer ready shade.

Cover Girl Outlast Glosstinis are $2.99- 3.79 sugg. retail each, LE  and available now.

PS- Love the makeup bag ?   They are by NY based Pamela Barsky and she sells that one and more with fun pre- made sayings. You can see more here
