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.

Maybelline Express Finish Nail Enamel – Turquoise Lagoon: Review & Swatch

For one thing I don’t go by the “rules” of fashion linked with the weather…that brights are for spring/summer, dark colors are for winters. I wear any color any time depending on my mood (I am sure we all do). So the other day I was just checking out Maybelline counter when this pretty polish caught my attention. I asked the SA to swatch it on my nail and my feelings for Turquoise came all rushing back. Actually my favorite color keeps changing and this used to be my favorite color all my teen years. I had forgotten how pretty turquoise color is. Turquoise eyeliner looks equally amazing.

This color cheers my mood whenever I apply it. Very soothing and cool color. This color is the kind you would want to wear in spring/summer. It will brighten up any outfit.

Maybelline Express Finish nail polish in Turquoise lagoon is a true vibrant turquoise color. The consistency is opaque and takes 2 coats to build the color. The finish is creamy and glossy. The polish dries up to smoothest of texture on the nails. I mean you wont feel any ridges or bump. You would want to touch your nails all day. Whaat? Nobody does that?! Only I do it?!

The packaging looks chic and sturdy with the shade name written on top of the silver cap. The brush is decent and applies a fair amount in one go. The quantity is sufficient and will last a long time.

Formula is slightly on thicker side, so multiple application can turn streaky and gloopy. 2 coats is sufficient and gives true color. Also, brush strokes may show if you apply thin coat.

Staying power is good. It started to chip after 3-4 days- that too only slight tip wear.

Now coming to the 40 seconds claim, it does dry super fast. Full marks for that. This nailpolish will set before you finish up, adore your nails and close the bottle. Perfect for time crunch situations. I like such fast drying polishes.

Also, the best part for this nailpolish is its hassle-free removal. It takes absolutely no effort in removing this nailpolish. It gets removed with one single swipe of remover. Plus it doesn’t spread and dirty up the skin around nails while removing.

Price: Rs 210 

Quantity: 10 ml

This color is slightly difficult to photograph. It looks minty in sunlight but in reality it is a true bright turquoise color.
