Shellac-Like Manicure at Home with Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy

There’s nothing more annoying than either paying to get your nails done or painting them at home and only days later the polish chipping.

I also don’t want to spend money on a at home uv gel nail kit. I don’t have the time or patience to spend forty-five minutes painting my nails and that thing called cancer.

A fried of mine told me to try the Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat.



OPI – My Vampire is Buff

OPI – Lincoln Park After Dark






It’s only day three of my manicure so I will need to report later on how long it lasted. So far the pros for me are:

Easy to use – One coat with no lights needed. I used the top coat over my OPI nail polish. I love that it’s still effective with the nail polishes you already own.

Good Value – I think I paid $5.99 for the bottle.

Effective – It creates a long wear, gel-like shine with a smooth finish.

The only con that I see as of right now, I did not cap my nails, which I am terrible at, so I can see the tip of my nails chipping first.

I also used the Up & Up Nail Polish Drying Spray to speed up the dry time.
