When gel polish first hit the nail salons I was so excited. A manicure that lasted a week or more sounded amazing, well after trying several salons and types of gel polish I was always left a bit underwhelmed. The gel polish was significantly more money but the results were maybe 4 days of chip free wear versus the standard 2 to 3. I had all but given up until Jocelyn started raving about the new Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamel. The price was right and she said her at home mani would last a week or more! I was sold.
Yesterday I hit Target and grabbed a Colorstay Gel Envy Polish and Top Coat. Last night I buffed my nails, wiped them down with rubbing alcohol to remove any oils and layered two coats of the color polish on. The formula is a bit lighter and more watery than usual nail polish. But I like it, I found I was able to more precisely apply it and not make a mess of my nail beds like I do with standard polish. After letting the color dry for a bit I added the Diamond Top Coat and proceeded to fall fast asleep.
I was sure I would wake up with a mess of nails printed from the sheets and blankets and all smudged. But when I checked my nail enamel was perfect. No chipping, smudging of any kind. And better yet they looked fantastic. Polish usually lasts me one day before I chip the heck out of. I have been on my computer most of the day, washing dishes and doing laundry and they are still going strong. This formula definitely seems to hold tight and be stronger than most. Can’t wait to see how many days this polish lasts, I will update you and be trying more colors!
