Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $7.99

THE SKINNY: This power duo of polish and topcoat lasted longer than anything else I have tried -- ever!

Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy is a two-step process with a base coat/color and then top coat. It goes on (and comes off) like regular polish though, so don't be fooled by "gel" in the name.

But it stays on like a gel. It is super shiny and smooth like a gel. (I used "Beginner's Luck," a pale but shimmery nude.)

I can normally keep nail polish for a day before it starts to chip. This polish never chipped or wore down. (I removed it after a week because I could see where it was growing out.)

I was very skeptical about this polish and top coat before buying but it works so much better than I expected. Now I only wonder ... will the topcoat protect any nail polish this well? (I plan to try that experiment next and report back.)

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. And go get more!

CHECK IT OUT: See all 30 shades from Revlon and buy at grocery or drugstores everywhere.
