Love how smooth it goes on and great the color looks. Glad I bought it. :)
This is legitimate!
I recently bought this and I'm amazed at how easily it glides on and how opaque it looks with just 2 coats. I don't like the permanency of real gel polish but love the smooth and shiny look.
This is even better than they say!
My nails have looked horrid since I took off my acrylics. Not only did they break easily, but nail polish would not stay more than a day.
Enter Gel Envy. Used with a primer and the accompanying top coat, it stays up to three weeks without chippin! It is everything I wanted.
Two caveats though: The color number is small and impossible to gather information on. This lead me to try on line sources, and unfortunately, I hated some of the colors. But the ones I love are Wow!
Pictured shimmering Gambling Heart after THREE weeks!
My fav polish
Revlon is my favorite gel polish. Love the brush. Stays on great. Call this my summer red. I have a lot of colors. Never been disappointed. Be sure
Love how fast it dries
Saw a Robin's nest witch made me do my nails this color. Thought I would give this line a try. So far love, dries fast , and has stayed on so far for three days .
The polish is a lovely Spring shade but it needs more than one coat to give it the depth it needs. Likely three coats.
Dries FAST!!! Great for busy women. :)
As a busy mom of 5 with my hands into everything, I can't ever get polish to stay on my soft, flexible nails for long. Also, I don't exactly have time to sit around not using my hands for long enough to let normal polish dry. So, I did some research, and since I have never bought a Revlon product I didn't LOVE, decided to try these gel polishes. I purchased Bet on Love (just shimmer), All or Nothing (opaque milky pink), and the topcoat. I'm very happy with my purchases! They go on smoothly and evenly, the wide rounded brush is AWESOME for easy coverage of the whole nail in smooth sweeps, and the polish actually did last me better than anything else I've tried. BUT, my favorite feature is how amazingly quickly it dries!!! Each coat dries in minutes, then the topcoat takes a wee bit longer, but overall, I can have a nice, durable, glossy manicure in about 30 minutes flat that doesn't ding, dent or chip. HALLELUJAH!!!
The ONLY downside I found is that I did notice (with All or Nothing) some wear around the edges of my nails after only about 48 hours and washing my hair, but it never got worse and was easy to patch. I'm sure it's because my nails bend so easily. It'll be interesting to see how a darker color wears.
I can't wait to try other colors – All On Red is next on my list. (attached is an image of All or Nothing x3 Coats)
Product Did Not Harden
Purchased Color 445 "Try Your Luck" The color is very nice but applicaton was inconsistent. If you don't have lots on the brush, you are just left with brush marks (lines with no polish on your nail). It never dries completely. The next day if you touch it, the shine disapears and you can dent it leaving a an empty spot.
I bought this product, opened it to find their is no brush! Annoying... so I can’t really review as I can’t use it... I was looking forward to using this as per the brilliant reviews.
Looks good less than 24 hours
I recently bought 610 heartbreaker. I’ve attempted using it twice and will never use again. Yesterday I painted my nails. I relaxed at home for the entire night. My polish is already chipping in less than 24 hours! The polish no longer has a smooth look either on all my nails.
Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel
When this product first came out I really liked it. Since I've purchase a second and third color. The colors now seem more transparent than the original first purchase. Even with two coats it streaks and does not last but a couple of days as apposed to the first purchase which lasted a week! Did Revlon change the formula in just a few months? Very disappointed......
THE BEST POLISH!!
Gel Envy is the beat polish I've ever used. Don't let the name "Gel" Envy fool you. No UV light required. You paint it on like any other polish, use their diamond top coat to seal it, it dries super fast, and it lasts at least twice as long as any other nail polish brand. Then it comes off with regular polish remover. Seriously obsessed with this stuff! Just wish there were more color options and more availability in stores. Not all stores carry it and those that do don't carry very many colors.
Super Long Wear
1 full week, no touch ups even after I did some gardening. The quality is very similar to professional shellac manicures!
Great for allergies!
I'm allergic to something that's in most nail polishes. When my hands get around my face, my eyes would burn and swell a bit. This does not happen with this polish, so happy! Add in the fact that it's hard wearing and comes in lots of colors, it's a win for me!
First I am going to say that I have natural nails and fortunately for me they are extremely hard. I started using Gel Envy about 3 years ago. I have to tell you that I am very impressed. The color goes on very evenly, and just glides on, no streaking. When I do my nails I put on two coats of the primer/polish. Let dry and then put on the top coat. If I do my nails on Monday for example, Wednesday I will put on another top coat and they last me an easy two weeks. I can honestly say that they do not chip at all. My nails will grow out first, requiring a new job. My only complaint would be that their are not enough colors. I think they have maybe 12 and all are on the dark side which is disappointing. I did recently try a competitors gel polish. The main reason is that they offer more pastel colors, (pink, blue) love love love their color choice, but two days in my nails were chipping. So I am disappointed but will probably use it again as I have the bottle. Revlon, please start making a line of pastel or light colors. Who wants to wear dark in the Summer. Ok, maybe the hot pink you have (which I do to) but give the consumer more choices.
Doesn’t harden looks terrible next day
My nails looked amazing when I painted them. SO shiny.. I used the very pale
Pink that looks like French manicure. But the polish immediately became the texture of white out and even though they dried for 10 hrs they had the texture of my sheets the next day. They are tacky and sticky and a totally different texture than when I first did them!
long lasting, amazing polish
love this polish, wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised when my polish lasted almost 2 weeks without chipping and then it just started to wear out. by far one of the best polishes I've tried and I have tried them all. no more shellac polish for me with the soaking time and damage to my nails. I got the cardshark color and can't wait to try others, I hope they are this good and not a fluke, cause I think this is too good to be true.
The color is very nice, however, after applying the polish it will move so much. Not to mention the application is hard, if you don't have a TON of polish on the applicator, there will be inconsistencies and visible brush marks. Its just so thick and goopy and hard to apply, also, after it 'dries' its not really even dry. You can touch it with your finger after an hour of drying and the fingerprint will be on it. After a day, you can dent it. Doing anything will ruin your nails and leave gross marks, and leave some spots empty and some spots clumpy because it moves too easily even when drying. I've never used a polish this bad before.
I absolutely LOVE gel envy! I've tried many brands of polish from cheap to salon expensive brands and gel envy is my favorite. Its everything revlon promised. I gave 4 stars cuz the ONLY downside is it does begin to clump before I finish a bottle. But other than that, I love it.
I love this nail polish . It glides on so smoothly and stays long as well . [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
