Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamel Wild Card Review

  • Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Longwear range comes in a sturdy cylindrical glass bottle with long black cap (similar to its Colorstay range which now is discontinued). The shade name is stickered on top of the cap.
  •  The brush is amazing and helps in hassle free application. The brush is long, flat and double-barrel with tapered corners which helps in mess-free application especially around edges and cuticles.
  • Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamel are very richly pigmented and gives full color in single swipe.
  • The consistency is creamy and slightly thick than usual nailpolish which makes it longer to dry.
  • The shade Wild Card is a gorgeous cobalt blue color. This is quite a vibrant and bright color which make the nails pop, and it is hard not to notice such a vivid color on someone. I myself saw this color on SA, after which I couldn’t resist buying it.
  • It has a glossy finish which starts to fade after 2-3 days.
  • This is not a quick drying nailpolish and takes quite a while to dry completely. Even after it has ‘set’ you can end up with fabric marks. I was able to put a dent in it with my nail even after 2 days (This could also be because my nailpolish is bit old now).
  • Coming to the Longwear claim, it stayed put for 2-3 days after which it started to chip, especially on my dominant hand.
  • It is quite pricey but the quantity is more and the formula is different from average nailpolish. Also, this is mostly on discount on some or the other e-commerce platform.
  • I have never had a proper gel manicure in a salon, but compared to any other drugstore faux-line of gel polish I have tried, these win hands down! These are highly glossy when freshly applied.
  • Being a vibrant and bright color, the shade Wild Card will suit fair to medium skin tones.
  • This is an unusual and super gorgeous shade of blue, and if you are a blue nailpolish fan like me, do check this one out. I am sure you too will end up buying it  😀

Sugar Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer Pro: Deep Down Diopside ~ Review & Swatch

 

Sugar cosmetics launched 6 metallic shades in its Tip Tac Toe Pro Nail polish collection last year and I have a couple of shades with me. In this post I am reviewing the shade ‘Deep Down Diopside‘, which I received in one of the Fab bags (HERE).

 

Price: Rs 299 for 10 ml

 

Sugar Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer Pro Deep Down Diopside Review

  • Sugar Tip Tac Toe nail lacquer come in cuboidal glass packaging with black cap.
  • The nailpolish bottle is housed in cardboard packaging with all necessary details on the sides. The shade name is written on a tiny sticker along the side of the cardboard packaging, so it is difficult to sort if you stash the polish along with its outer packing. (THIS nailpolish by Chambor has a cute cutout in its cardboard packaging for easy spotting).
  • The bottle cap being cuboidal in shape doesnot always sit in line with the bottle when you shut it tight. It will be tad loose if you try to keep the shape of bottle, and if you shut it tight the overall cuboidal shape is lost. THIS nailpolish by Sephora is perfect in this regard. The shade name is stickered at the bottom.
  • The brush is short and straight ended which makes the application messy around the curve of nail bed. I like U-shaped brush like in THIS nailpolish.
  • Tip Tac Toe Pro nail lacquer is amazingly pigmented and gives full coverage in one coat itself.
  • Like any metallic nail color, this nailpolish is bit streaky so you need to apply it carefully to avoid visible brush strokes.
  • Deep Down Diopside is a beautiful sea green color with hint of blue. Sugar describes it as emerald green, but this is not an emerald green color.  I have done a huge post on Emerald green when it was Pantone color of the year, check HERE.
  • This is a metallic shade with diffused shine, which looks attractive.
  • Tip Tac Toe nail lacquer Pro dries really fast. One of the fastest drying polishes I have tried (and I have tried many! :D). This makes it perfect for times when you want to apply in jiffy.
  • Lasts 4 days without chipping and with minor tip wear.
  • Shade Deep Down Diopside is very very similar to Nykaa Mirror Chrome nailpolish in shade Lunar Green River. I have both and a comparison pic is at the end of this post.
  • Tip Tac Toe nail polish have Nine-free formula: No parabens, formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, xylene, formaldehyde resin, acetone and ethyl tosylamide.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

See the similarity? Sugar Tip Tac Toe metallic nailpolish ‘Deep Down Diopside‘ is only  tad brighter than Nykaa Mirror Chrome nailpolish ‘Lunar Green River‘. I will do a separate post on full comparison between these two polishes.

 

Overall, Sugar Tip Tac Toe Nail lacquer Pro come in cuboidal glass bottle with cuboidal black cap. The cap does not always sit in line with the bottle when you shut it tight. The brush is short and straight which makes the application messy. The shade Deep Down Diopside is a gorgeous metallic sea green color with hints of blue. The pigmentation is insane and gives full opaque coverage in one coat itself. However,  being a metallic finish it tends to be streaky and needs to be applied carefully. It dries super quickly. I will definitely purchase more shades from the range.

Maybelline Superstay Gel Nail Color : Pink in the Park ~ Review & Swatch

 

 

Maybelline nailpolish has been my favorite since the launch of Superstay range (Kiko is another close fav brand). I have quite a few nailpolish from this range and I have already reviewed two shades: Uptown Blue (pastel blue color, right one in pic above) and Sunkissed (pastel peach color). The color range is quite good and they keep launching new color collection in this range like Ink collection, City Nudes, Summer bliss, Super impact collection etc. In this post I am reviewing a pastel baby pink color – Pink in the Park.

 

Price: Rs 350 for 10 ml

 

Maybelline Superstay Gel Nail Color Pink in the Park

  • Maybelline Superstay Gel nail polish comes in a flat, glass packaging with white cap. The shade name is stickered at top and the list of ingredients is at the back in peel off sticker.
  • Consistency of this nailpolish is creamy and pigmentation is top notch. It needs two coats for full color and dries to glossy finish.
  • These are fast drying nailpolish
  • The application brush of these nailpolish is my favorite of all. The flat, wide, U-curve brush makes the application breezy and less prone to error, especially around cuticles.
  • Pink in the Park is a bright baby pink color which looks beautiful on the nails. It is pale and vibrant at the same time. I love pastel nail colors and this one is perfect for summers.
  • The nail polish stays put for 5-6 days with minor tip wear. You can prolong the wear time by applying a top coat.
  • Even though this range is pricey compared to other nailpolish in the market, but the quality is so much better. You should own at least one to know the difference.
  • Pastel colors generally make the complexion look tad darker, specially for dusky beauties. So try the shades at counters first if it bothers you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, Maybelline Superstay Gel nail color in shade Pink in the Park is a beautiful pastel pink color which is perfect for spring/summer. The color is bright and pale at the same time. The formula is creamy and highly pigmented. The wide, U-shaped brush makes the application incredibly easy. These are long lasting nailpolish and will last for 5-6 days at least if you wear it with a top coat. The formula is top notch. I love pastel colors and I am definitely going to repurchase it.

Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel : Lady Luck ~ Review & Swatch

 

I have two range of Revlon nailpolish with me, one smaller packaging (THIS) and other Colorstay Gel Envy range which has been one of my favorite since it launched in 2014 (i think) and in this post I am reviewing a very beautiful shade- Lady Luck.

 

Price: Rs 460 for 11.7 ml

 

Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamel Review

Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy range is exactly similar in packaging to its Colorstay range (which now is discontinued). It comes in a sturdy cylindrical bottle with long black cap. The shade name is stickered on top of the cap. The brush is amazing, and contrary to brush of THIS nailpolish range, Colorstay range has an amazing double-barrel brush which is longflat with tapered corners. It helps in hassle free application, especially around edges and cuticles.

The pigmentation of these nailpolish is quite rich and gives full pigmentation in single swipe. The consistency is slightly thick than usual nailpolish which makes it longer to dry. Also, it is streaky in one coat so you need to apply 2 coats for a leveled finish.

The shade Lady Luck is a beautiful coral pink color which borders on being neonish. In the bottle it appears to have a golden sheen but on the nails it is hardly noticeable. This is a creamy nailpolish with glossy finish. It is quite difficult to photograph true coral color and the swatches below fail to capture it. This is a bright color which make the nails pop, making it perfect for summers.

Coming to the Longwear claim, it stayed put for 2-3 days after which I started to see slight tip wear, especially on my dominant hand. Proper chipping started after 5-6 days, which is okay. It is quite pricey but the quantity is more and the formula is different from average nailpolish.

I have never had a proper gel manicure in a salon, but compared to any other drugstore faux-line of gel polish I have tried, these win hands down!

Being a bright color, the shade Lady Luck will suit fair to medium skin tones. Dusky skin beauties may want to steer clear as it makes the skin color look a tad darker.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamel are richly pigmented, giving full coverage in single swipe. They get streaky in single swipe but levels off with another coat. The packaging is sturdy, cylindrical bottle with a long, tapered brush which is easy to work with. The shade Lady Luck is a beautiful coral pink color which is quite bright and borders on being neonish, making it perfect for summers. It stays put for 2-3 days after which tip wear sets in. Chipping starts after 5-6 days. This is a bit pricey nailpolish but the finish and consistency and quality is top notch. Being a bright color, Lady Luck shade will suit fair to medium skin tones.
