Steal/Splurge: Longwear Nail Polish
This post is about so much more than saving money. It’s about the SINGLE GREATEST NAIL POLISH I’ve ever used. I won’t name names, but I’ve tried them all—up to the tippy top $27 bottle you see above. In fact, I’ve tried Covergirl’s Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss ($4) at least a dozen times—on hands, feet, and in various shades—to make absolutely certain I’m not imagining that one coat is all it takes. One! Uno! I can’t even say that about my beloved Butter London unless it’s a supersheer shade. But even the tomato Ever Reddy (above) that I’ll be wearing all summer goes on like a fully loaded gel polish in one fell swoop. And the built-in topcoat that every brand and their mother keeps boasting about? This one actually works AND stays shiny for days. I encourage you to experience the the shock and awe for yourself, stat.
