COVERGIRL Outlast Glosstinis for Summer 2013 Swatches & Review

As far as seasonal nail polish collections go, COVERGIRL has flipped the script with the launch of the COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstinis. Packaging their Summer 2013 color palette in a mini bottle is not only a space saver, it reduces waste.

I mean, let’s get real, outside of a handful of beloved shades, when was the last time you finished a full bottle of nail polish? I seriously can’t remember, which is what make the Glosstinis a stroke of genius.

I’ll be honest, when I first heard the term Glosstini, I envisioned a line of sheer jellies and my heart immediately sank. Don’t get me wrong, I love a jelly for layering but, in general, they aren’t flattering on my nails. I was pleasantly surprised, and relieved, to find that the Glosstinis are simply minis of the full coverage, high-gloss polishes I fell in love with months ago.

This type of candy-colored collection always brings back memories of the first Skittles manicure I showed you, using the Zoya Candy collection, or how we debated whether multi-colored manicures were trendy or tacky. Now, that wouldn’t even be a question. Oh how times have changed since I launched this site, over six years ago.

China Glaze Texture Nail Polish Swatches & Review

When I first heard that textured nail polish was going to be the big thing for 2013, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Given that so many DIYers had been experimenting with flocking powder, beads, sugar, embossing powder and just about anything you can find in a craft store, brands could have gone down a number of different roads.

I’m happy to see that rather than jump on the exact same bandwagon (e.g. crackle), the brands are differentiating themselves somewhat, offering varying takes on texture. The China Glaze Texture collection is one such example.

Of the textured polishes I’ve shown thus far, the majority have gone down the sparkly, glistening sand route. China Glaze’s take has the look of stucco with tiny irregularly shaped particles that remind me of NERDS candy.
