Revlon Gel Envy Review x

I'm a little bit late to the game with this one but I wanted to collect a good amount of colours before reviewing them for you guys. What I'm talking about today is the Revlon Gel Envy Nail Polishes. They cost £6.99 each (sometimes on 2 for £10) and are some of the best nail polishes I have tried.

I have 10 shades (out of 30) which is not all of the collection but is a fair amount to show you, if you want to check out the rest of the collection click here.

The 10 shades I have are 500 ace of spaces, 620 roulette rush, 410 up the ante, 440 wild card, 320 full house, 130 pocket aces, 110 lady luck, 640 jokers wild, 100 cardshark and 540 Check Mate. And First things first I think the packaging is really sleek and I love that all the names are kind of cards and game related as I think it makes the whole collection tie together nicely.

My personal favourites would be wild card, full house and pocket aces especially for summer. They work as a gel polish which when topped with the diamond top coat creates a super easy at home gel finish. I guess this is Revlon's rival product to the barry M jelly shine nail polishes but in my opinion they do a much better job. They last for ages especially on your toes and are really simple to achieve a gel look but obviously is much cheaper.

Here are the shades on my nails (Disclaimer I have short nails so its hard to paint them, so please don't judge on the job I've done, ok disclaimer over). This is them all done with 2 coats and a top coat. I have to say I am not a huge fan of Check Mate because I just don't think it suits my skin tone but all the others I am really impressed with and would definitely recommend checking them out. They are all opaque with 2 coats even the lighter shades and to be honest most are fine with just 1 coat making this such a hassle free way to get great nails.

So that's my review of the Revlon Gel Envy Nail Polishes if you want me to review anything specific let me know either below or via the social media icons on the right. 

Until Next Time
