The Classic Red
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.
