CoverGirl Constant Candy

**all items purchased by me

I'm so happy that today's finally Thursday!  But the day completely got away from me!  I lost a few hours somewhere along the way.  Oh, well.  This week has felt like it's been dragging along, probably because last week I only had to get work clothes for the Mister prepped for one day and this week it's been all 5.

Anyway...on to pretty part of today's post.  Huh, 2 CoverGirl posts in a not intentional.  This is actually the first CoverGirl polish that I've purchased since the line was reformulated and came out last year (I think it was last year...maybe the year before?).  I just picked this up from the clearance section of Ulta earlier this year in February.

This is 2 coats of CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant polish in 135 Constant Candy over Orly Bonder.  Please don't mind the various cuts on my fingers - Tomo got me good around the time this was on my nails.

The up close picture is rather unforgiving; the pictures down below are much closer to how this looked in real life.  I found the formula and brush easy to control and didn't need hardly any clean-up.  Constant Candy is on the sheer side of a soft baby pink, but I really like it.  This would be a good color for a traditional French manicure, but I like it under glitter polishes.  I had paired this with OPI Gaining Mole-Mentum but, unfortunately, the pictures didn't turn out well at all.  I'll have to recreate that combo soon.
This polish wore surprisingly well on me.  The lasting time before it chipped was comparable to how OPI/Nicole by OPI wears on me, which is 3-4 days before cracking/chipping/peeling.  I've actually had this on my nails a few times since purchasing this one.  It impressed me so much that now I'm checking out the line a bit more, especially if I spot a shade on clearance somewhere.

Do you have a favorite CoverGirl Outlast polish?
