A few weeks ago I attended a nail masterclass with Jenny Longworth who is the UK Nail Ambassador for Revlon. It was a really great experience that taught me a lot about creating a better at-home manicure – something I’m extremely bad at – which was so helpful and I took away some great tips on application as well as creating the perfect canvas; it was truly enjoyable! It also gave me a chance to familiarise myself with the new Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamels.
This is a whopping launch of 30 new shades from Revlon, alongside a Diamond Top Coat to create a gel-like finish. Each polish has an in-built base coat, so you don’t have to faff about with layering various products and instead can apply two coats of the Gel Envy shade followed by the topcoat. The 30 shades cover a fantastic spectrum and contain some truly lovely colours such as bright cobalt blues, cheery corals and of course, lovely variants of pink that I jumped on immediately. During the masterclass we did our own manicures step-by-step and I went for the beautifully baby pink of Cardshark which you can see on my Instagram feed here – link.
I took away a few of my favourite shades to have a play with, so here are my five favourites, in the image above, starting from left we have Beginner’s Luck – a pearly, “oyster-shell” pink; the aforementioned Cardshark – a beautiful baby pink; Winning Strike – a true lavender; Hot Hand – a vivid, mid pink that’s gorgeous on toes and fingers and lastly Pocket Aces which is one of the loveliest coral shades I’ve seen; it’s a warm reddy coral with the tiniest hint of orange and it’s currently flattering my toes!
If I had to pick a favourite I’d go with Hot Hand as it’s a lovely pink, but I really recommend Pocket Aces too, which is apparently one of the most popular shades from the full range. The Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy range is available now at £6.99 each, and Boots currently have a 3for2 on here – link.
