I do love a rainbow of colour – and this little feast for the eyes gives you exactly that. With my picks of the new Revlon Gel Envy range. These are Revlon’s offering for the high-shine, gel-like nail products that most brands are dipping their toe in. Revlon are a brand I’ve always associated with seriously good nail products. One of my all-time favourite nail shades is Vixen by Revlon – a deep burgundy that’s a go-to if I don’t know what shade to go for. At one point I had three of these in the collection at one time… that’s how good a colour it is. But back to Revlon Gel Envy – these are part of the core ColorStay range and the shades promise a combination of colour and base coat. Then there’s the ColorStay Diamond Top Coat to add a gloss and staying power.
These five shades are my personal favourites from the range – I’m clearly having a bright colour moment! The red is ‘Roulette Rush’ a classic red. The blue is ‘Wild Card’, if you read this blog often then you will know I’m a sucker for a blue and this is one of the best. Seriously bright and just creamy blue gorgeousness. Then there’s the yellow – certainly not my usual shade of choice and I doubt I’d go as far as wearing it alone, but next to the other shades it’s a stunner. Plus it’s one of the best creamy and bright yellow shades I’ve seen – this one is called ‘Casino Lights’. Then we have two more ‘typical’ me shades – the lovely ‘Full House’ turquoise shade and ‘Winning Streak’ a lilac/purple. These two are the ones I wore for my hen weekend – Full House on the fingers and Winning Streak on my toes… which didn’t manage to bring me much of a winning streak in the Brighton arcades, but at least I had a good manicure!
Quality wise, I can’t fault these. They’re pigmented, two coats to perfect and super glossy (all shown without a top coat). Personally I’d still use my much loved Seche Vite top coat for quicker drying time as it’s my all time favourite.
