NOTD: Covergirl XL Nail Gel-Whole Lotta Guava


A new polish from Covergirl came out recently. The XL Nail Gel line. There are a ton of great colors and I picked one up for $7.99 at Walgreens. I was surprised by the size of the bottle. It looks huge but I think thats just the way its shaped mostly. It is .44 oz’s so it does have more product than most of the polishes that I buy.

And the color is beautiful!



I used a base coat, two coats of Whole Lotta Guava, and a top coat. The brush is nice and just thick enough which I like. I hate a wimpy or thin polish brush ugh! I’d say the formula was really nice as well. Not super thick but the shade was opaque after one coat which is nice. I did two cause thats my normal routine. The polish dried really quickly and left a nice shiny finish. I did a top coat but I didn’t need to.


I love how its practically neon. Perfect for Summer:) If this test run goes well I’m going to have to get some of the other colors!

    Hmm interesting how these companies are calling what seems to be regular polish “gel.” What are your thoughts?

      Not sure what to make of that. I did enjoy the polish and it wore really well. Just like a regular nail polish. Not sure where “gel” comes in!

    This polish is excellent but Walmart carries only a handful of colors. The gel they refer to is longer lasting and it wears better than regular polish.
