Cover Girl Fuchsia Fatale + Award

I'm starting to think that Cover Girl polishes are very underrated. I know they are not a brand that even pops into your head when you think of drugstore nail polish. They don't release seasonal collections and they're not the easiest polishes to find. However, I've always had good experiences with their polishes and they sell for a reasonable price. They have a selection of standard colors, but they also have a few standout colors and amazing glittery top coats. I don't expect they'll ever be a brand we'll be reaching for, but it's a good brand of polish that I recommend. I think it retails around the same as Maybelline, but less than Revlon around the $3-$3.50 range.

Fuchsia Fatale
A few weeks ago I was looking for a the perfect plum/berry creme. I was at Target and couldn't find this shade at price I wanted to pay within other brands and then I spotted this one. This went on smoothly with 2-3 coats and held up nicely! I really like this type of shade. I think it would fit into any season as it's not too bright nor is it too dark. It's a great type of shade to have whether it be from Cover Girl, or another brand. :)
