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.

  1. Zanimivi. A pol si ti lakci neke sorte “predniki” te norije “gel-brez-lučke” (če praviš, da jih že leta čakaš)?
    Bo za preverit jih, valda. :)

    • Nope, tisti del se je nanašal na originalno Colorstay linijo s podlakom in nadlakom.
      Hecno je samo, ker so vse glavne značilnosti ostale enake, samo podlak so ukinili in naredili še bolj “plastično” formulo. Evropejci smo dobili šele reformulirane Gel Envy lake, ampak so tusi te že leto ali 2 stari.

  2. Wild card izgleda luškano :wub: Drugače sem pa samo vesela, da Revlon je pri nas :happy: Ker Lip Butterji so mi toptoptop – težka samodisciplina mi preprečuje, da bi imela vse odtenke :whistle:
    Xoxo, Nyx

  3. Čudoviti lakci in kot vedno, krasen opis. Vedno mi je v veselje prebrati tvoje recenzije lakcev, ker najdeš prave besede. Res so lepi! :w00t:

  4. Alelujaaaa:) kak pa hud lesk in barve…navdušena:) za jesen bi si vzela tegale temno vijola lakec:)

    • Sicer je čez nadlak, ampak imajo že sami po sebi res visok sijaj. Revlon se je s temi laki definitivno izkazal. :thumb:

  5. Jaz jih par že imam sem pa gledala tudi tega modrega ki me zelo mika. Ali kaj obarva nohte?

    Jaz večinoma za hitro sušenje uporabljam Seche Vite vendar sem opazila da se zelo veliko lakov skrči spodaj ko ga uporabim in potem se takoj pokažejo bele konice. Tako da moram sedaj na lov a kakšnim drugim hitro sušečim nadlakom (razmišljam o Deborah ki ga kar nekaj uporabnic zelo pohvali)-

    • Jaz preferiram Poshe. Meni je veliko boljši kor Seche + nima notri nobenega izmed večjih zlobcev. Krčenje je pa tudi veliko manj problematično.
      Včeraj sem kupila ArtDeco hitrosušeči nadlak … pa da vidimo.
      Meni jih ni, ker sem uporabljala podlak. Moji nohti so zelo porozni, tako da ni niti najmanjše opcije, da jih ne bi obarvalo. :sigh:
