4 Revlon Colors­tay Gel Envy™ long­wear in Queen of Hearts, £6.99

The brand’s hype: “Colors­tay Gel Envy™ Long­wear Nail Enamel. This pi­o­neer­ing nail col­lec­tion holds all the cards, pro­vid­ing bril­liant colour, gel-shine and long last­ing wear in an easy at-home 2-step sys­tem.”

This def­i­nitely starts off the shini­est of them all and it’s a good, clas­sic deep red shade. How­ever, the colour doesn’t go on very evenly all over, even af­ter two coats.

The gor­geous shine that set this nail var­nish apart has gone by day three mean­ing the shade packs less of a punch and although the chip­ping isn’t bad at all, it’s start­ing to fade at the cu­ti­cles.

By the fi­nal day there’s def­i­nitely a lot more chip­ping on the tips and around the cu­ti­cle area. The fad­ing of the colour is mak­ing it look tired, old and in des­per­ate need of another coat.

Ver­dict: Revlon do say that to get the full ef­fect you need to buy another prod­uct, the Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat, to ap­ply on top of this prod­uct which would make it stay glossy for longer, but on it’s own it’s fairly av­er­age.
