Manicure Monday: Covergirl Buxom Blue

9:00 AM


Today I have another polish from one of my new favorite lines at the drugstore: Covergirl XL Nail Gel in Buxom Blue. I'm not even gonna lie, at this point you guys know I've been super impressed with the line and this gorgeous sky blue is no exception!


One thing that made me gravitate toward this shade was that it's almost like a darker pastel with zero minty tones. It's just like a clean, blue summer sky and would actually look adorable with some puffy cloud nail art. Let me tell ya, I'm holding on to these last summer days like what because as soon as it starts to get colder outside I know I'm going to miss it.


Here I applied a base of OPI Nail Envy, 2 coats of Buxom Blue, and Seche Vite top coat for that glossy gel-like shine. This combo seems to work really well for me, especially with the XL Nail Gel formula.


Overall, it's another high recommendation for me just like the yellow and lavender from the line I've already reviewed.

If you are interested, you can pick this up for around $7 at Target and drugstore.com.

Readers, have you tried the newer gel-finish polishes? What do you look for in a blue polish? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Like I said before, these nail posts on the Covergirl XL nail gel colors are making me seriously want to run to Target right now to try them! I love this blue! It reminds me of the clear blue waters by a tropical beach, or, like you said, blue skies.
    I think for blue polishes, it really depends on my mood and if I'm looking for something more pure and royal blue, or if I want something minty/pastelly to it or something in between. I also like dark navy blue colors for the fall time. If you have more of these polishes, keep the Manicure Mondays coming! It'll definitely help with deciding which ones to pick up haha =P.

    1. It's soooo nice! It doesn't last as long as if you get gel nails done (which I've found to thin out my nails in the past) but if you use 3 coats it gives it that awesome squishy look. :)
