I wasn't expecting much, but it turns out that CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Always Naked 200 ($4.99) is a pretty amazing nail polish!

More than anything, CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Always Naked seems like an improved version of Revlon ColorStay Long Wear Nail Enamel. It has a similar texture (a little goopy) and opacity level (high). Most importantly, it also has similar wear time -- I found that CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Always Naked lasts for over a week even without a top coat. After 7 days, it still wasn't really chipping, but instead showed signs of wear and tear such as loss of shine and minor denting.

Where CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Always Naked differs from Revlon ColorStay Nail Enamel is dry time. While Revlon ColorStay Nail Enamel takes seemingly forever to dry, CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss has a much more average dry time. The result is better-looking nails because I have fewer opportunities to smudge them while they're still wet!

As for the color, Always Naked isn't my ideal neutral shade but it has grown on me quite a bit. First of all, I thought I was getting something entirely different based on the picture on Drugstore.com, I was expecting a mid-tone khaki. Instead, CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Always Naked is a light, taupe-y nude cream. After my initial disappointment, I find myself really enjoying the color. Always Naked is a polished (heh) and professional shade that makes my hands look long and slender.

Bottom Line: I found the quality of CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Always Naked to be a wonderful surprise. The coverage and dry time are good, and the wear time is great. I hope that this product becomes a hit at the drugstore!
