When I read that Revlon is finally launching Colorstay Gel Envy nail polishes in Europe, I just had to do a happy dance. I had to wait YEARS to be finally able to go to store and buy this highly praised nail polish line.
Revlon Gel Envy polishes are known for good staying power, thicker (cream) formula and very good pigmentation. I can’t say that dry time was fast, but as I always use fast drying top coat, that is not really an issue for me. Last intel from Revlon Slovenia is that we’ll be getting Revlon Diamond top coat any moment now. As soon as I spot it, it will be mine.
Unfortunately they discontinued base coat so I’ll never have an opportunity to try out trio my USA friends had only praises for. Revlon decided to incorporate base coat into the colour nail polish, but that never works for me as I have huge issues with staining.
I received 3 shades to test and review: 440 Wild Card, 450 High Roller and 620 Roulette Rush. High Roller and Roulette Rush are one of those nail polishes that hide very tiny shimmer. Shimmer that gives depth to the manicure but is not really that visible. All three shades have very good coverage, are thicker in consistency but are not difficult to apply as the brush is thin and easy to manoeuvre. Thanks to its little bit plasticky/gelish formula I had good results with staying power.
In Slovenia we have only 8 shades currently available. My friends are cheering for lighter/nude shades, while I’m not that modest – I want ALL of them.
My Revlon wish list currently houses: HD lipsticks, Gel Envy top coat, BB creams look interesting, cult highlighters are back, and do we have cream blushes? See why my wallet hates Revlon?
Which of Revlon products is your favourite … like I don’t have mile long wish list already, but go ahead, make me squirm.
