A Manicure That Survives the Kitchen

I always strayed away from traditional nail polish on my hands because I always felt that it would start chipping almost immediately. For me, a manicure never lasted more than a day or two so I always gravitated towards acrylics and gel manicures all throughout my 20s. I love doing my nails myself when I have some downtime and I’ve been on the hunt for a polish that stays on and looks fresh for days. In comes Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy™ Longwear Nail Enamel and even better… Revlon’s incredible Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat™! This product is not only easy to apply with it’s wider brush, but also longwearing and shiny!


I put my nails through a little kitchen test. Back during Ramadan, I was cooking heartier meals and was trying to stay away from my usually frequent carryout orders. With all the peeling, hand-mixing, and washing, my nails normally wouldn’t stand a chance; with this polish my manicure not only stays on but it stays looking fresh! Salon-quality color and everyday-life-resistant wear is what I’ve been looking for, but it being an easy 2-step system that I can do at home makes it the perfect storm. I even found a new favorite color along the way!

I hardly ever wear anything but pale-pink on my nails but Wild Card, Revlon’s vibrant cobalt blue has become my summer staple. It’s always been my favorite color to wear, I should have known I’d love it on my nails too!

The quality of wear that I keep boasting is guaranteed! Revlon stands by their uber-easy application steps so I encourage you to take the challenge risk free. See Revlon.com for more details. Limit 1 per HH.

Step 1 is your color (which actually is a Base + Color in one!), just apply two coats waiting 5 minutes in-between. Lastly, you’ll apply the ColorStay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat™ delivering chip-resistant wear & multi faceted shine – this is Revlon’s toughest top coat yet and is the only one on the market with DiamondFlex Technology. I would recommend working quickly with these products, especially the top coat to get the smoothest application.


Before peeling & cooking above to a finished meal below, my nails look just as fresh and shiny! Revlon ColorStay™ Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat uses film smoothing technology keeping your nails strong with a diamond like shine.
