COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss, $4.99
"I'm a nail polish fanatic with around 300 bottles from every brand on the market, so you might say I'm an expert. I also hate chips, so I compulsively paint my own nails twice a week while watching TV. I immediately tried these new COVERGIRL lacquers when they launched last month and nearly died when I realized they last seven days with no chips, and without a topcoat! The quality definitely rivals the fancy, high-end brands. Naturally I stocked up on a handful of gorgeous colors, but Vio-Last is my favorite." - Joanna Douglas, Senior Fashion & Beauty Editor less
