Update: Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamel

CYMERA_20160505_141339

Well, for a girl that can’t seem to keep polish on for more than 3 days without it looking like I dragging my nails as I drove I am in love with Revlon’s Colorstay Gel Envy. I painted my nails last Thursday and I would say they made it to 6 days without any chips or wear. And 8 days  I need to change my polish as its starting to chip. But for an at home gel mani this is so affordable, easy to do and lasts longer than the gel manicures I’ve got in a salon. If you haven’t tried it yet go out and grab some your nails will look great all summer!

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!

New! Limited Edition Mother’s Day Dove Products

mom and me

Above is a pic of me and my mom probably about 1983.  I love Dove products and what better way to celebrate the natural wonder that is Mother’s then these super cute Mother’s Day products.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Dove has transformed its iconic Beauty Bar for the first time in nearly 60 years to celebrate the women in our lives. For a limited time, the words love, real, kind or care will be engraved into the Dove Beauty Bar so that you can honor a woman who has made an impact on your life. Additionally, Dove is launching limited edition packaging on select body wash, hair products and deodorant featuring inspirational quotes from real women.

We often underestimate the potential of our words to make a positive impression on the women in our lives. Dove invites women to exchange these words with a special woman in their life as an expression of the bond they share this May.
