Tried heaps of nail polishes before and they all seem to chip on me instantly! Whereas with the revlon nail polishes I’ve tried 3 colours and all of them seem to last me a decent week which is crazy for me! Would 100% recommend over some other overrated nail polish brands!

I have a nail polish issue, I can’t get enough of them! (Toes not fingernails) But in the past I have been drawn in by Revlon and found them not as solid as other brands. All that has changed, these little bottles have a mighty punch, the colour still looks shiny and new after two weeks, without rub marks or chips. The brush it quite small which I’ve grown to appreciate as you can get better lines, and the handle is a better length - trivial things to some I’m sure, but important if you don’t have the steady hand of a calligraphist. It also comes off without staining or too much effort when you get the remover out - a big plus as no one needs to see the last colour peeking from underneath
As a professional beauty therapist I have used and tried many different nail varnish brands and types over the years. Revlon polishes have never disappointed me. I’m loving this new gel effect range, you get the gel look without the need to soak them off!! The colour range is great too!!
I “LOVE” these nail polishes, I’ve been buying them since they first came out on the market and will continue to do so. The colour selection is awesome, they go on beautifully and with two coats, along with a top coat, give a great, smooth, shiny finish. Like most nail polishes, you can get about half a bottle use out of them before they start going a bit thick and gluggy, but no different from any other of the more pricey brands I’ve tried.
Reasonably quick drying, and a fab finish, ticks all the boxes for me!!
Wow, the Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy is a goodie! I've tried a few different 'gel' nail polishes in the past and most of them do pretty well but chip after 3-4 days still. Not this baby! My nails lasted a full week at work (involving typing on a keyboard) without a single chip! So impressed. The formula goes on smoothly, dries VERY fast, and looks lovely on my nails. If Revlon were cruelty free this would be the perfect polish!
I purchased two shades (Beginners Luck and Queen of Hearts) from Farmer's as the "chip resistant" characteristic was quite appealing. Beginners Luck is a very pale pink, shimmery tone which is very subtly pretty, whilst Queen of Hearts is a very deep, eyecatching red.
I found application quite difficult and messy due to the unusually shaped, thin brush style - product dripped easily and it was difficult to apply to the confines of the nail in comparison to other brands such as Sally Hansen Miracle Gel. Application was actually more difficult with the Queen of Hearts Shade as it appeared much thinner and runnier than Beginners Luck and was far less opaque.
The gel finish is quite nice on the nail and true to description, however, in terms of longevity, I was quite disappointed as I started to see chips after two days.
Overall, if I was going for a gel finish I'd use Sally Hansen instead as application is far more straightforward with an equally good shade range.
Tips: The formula drips easily so best to be careful not to get too much on the brush. :)
I have been using this for the past 2 years! I live that it lasts longer than other polishes. However it does not last as long as gels as it claimed. I would definitely choose this over other products as it looks great and lasts longer!
I purchased these polishes with great expectations, finally a polish that will last as well as gels without the hassle of going to the salon and using a lamp. Unfortunately the polishes didn't deliver on that aspect. They last maybe two days before they start to chip and peel on my fingers. Although they can last for months on my toes (but so can most polishes). I love the colours and coverage. I know I can use this polish for a day/night out and not worry about it chipping within minutes but within a day or two it starts to.
These have been out for a while, and I can honestly say this is the only nail colour I now choose to purchase, however, there are a few points to ponder when choosing a new shade. I have noticed not all Revlon's Gel Envy colours are not created the same, there are shades that are really opaque, and not worth it at all, as far as colour payoff is concerned. (To me if I cannot get the desired effect within 2 coats, I don't want to use it anymore.) This is why it pays to test on a piece of sellotape, or on a naked nail. The brush itself is terrible, very uneven, and a steady hand is required to not leave drag marks on the nail when applying the colour, this takes a bit of getting used to, but they can be mastered!! I also find that the more glittery the colour, the harder it is to remove. A good polish remover is a must here! A base coat as well as the finishing top coat, are to me, essential. The base coat will prevent staining of the nail, if the colour is dark, and the top coat gives the most nicest shine, and completes the look. As far as longevity, I find it completely depends on what work your hands are doing, the chip factor doesn't usually creep in till the fourth or fifth day for me. After all this, i really do recommend these gel polishes, the colour payoff can be great when you have chosen the correct shade.
Tips: Choose 2 or more shades, and alternate on nails, don't forget the toes!! Testing these for the desired result is really important though, some can look better in the bottles than on the nail)
As a girl that doesn't like to do their nails often enough, when I first found this product I assumed that it was going to be very sturdy and last for a decent amount of time. I usually found that even after a day or so that my polish would chip and I would have to redo the nail. This became a tedious process and so I would often take the whole lot off and start again. It is possible I may not have been applying it correctly, but being nail polish and not gel polish I assume it is applied just like any other nail polish
