Revlon’s Colorstay Gel Envy: Tip & Review

This is my first beauty post and I take the name of the nail polish color Beginner’s Luck as a good sign.  This is also my first product review and I’m excited to give you the full detail of my experience.

Revlon’s Colorstay Gel Envy is a 2 step process that claims to give salon-quality manicure that delivers shatter-proof strength, ding-resistant wear and diamond-like shine.

Step 1: is the Colorstay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel that comes in over 20 shades.  It provides the base coat and color in one easy time saving step.

Step 2: is the Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat which provides strength and shine.

I really wanted to love this product when I bought the color you see above with the diamond top coat but was very disappointed when the color started chipping away after 3 days.

However a friend of mine recently gave me a great tip on how to make my manicure last longer using this product.  She told me to keep reapplying the diamond top coat once a day after the initial application to make the color stay longer.

I followed her advice and reapplied the top coat for about 4 days in a row but then I forgot about it.  I usually reapplied in the evening when I was unwinding down for the night and the top coat dried pretty fast while I watched TV.

The final verdict… the color actually stayed put for about 7 days which is good enough for me since it lasted for the week.  I also used gloves when I washed dishes so that probably helped.

I would love to hear if anyone else has used to this product and their experience with it so please share in the comments.

Thank you for reading!
