A good top coat is one of those beauty products that tends to be an unsung hero; they aren’t as glamorous as much a hyped highlight or eyeshadow palette but finding a good one is a little beauty blessing. I’m very much enjoying this Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat from Revlon so I though it deserved a quick post.
I was pleased to receive this top coat in my October Glossybox as I had almost run out of my previous bottle from Sally Hansen. There are so many top coats on the market to choose from and I’ve never loved one so much that it became a regular repurchase.
That said, I intend to buy another of this product when I run out. I like the double brush design; I can cover my entire nail with one swipe if I’m trying to be quick.
The finish this top coat creates is super glossy and long lasting. The formula is slightly thicker than most top coats I’ve tried but it doesn’t take any longer to dry. I’ve found that it helps keep my nails shiney and ‘just painted’ looking for a good 5-7 days, bearing in mind that I like my nails to look really glossy.
This photo shows my nails in serious need of in-fills (I have a layer of acrylic on top of my natural nails) and the top coat is doing any excellent job of distracting attention away from the shabbiness of my nails, with the cunning use of glossiness. This is very useful when I’ve been too unwell to get to the nail place regularly; let’s face it, that’s the case all the time these days.
So if you’re browsing the drugstore for your next top coat, I recommend giving this ago – what’s not to like about a top coat that’s glossy and keeps your nails look freshly ‘done’ for longer?
Wishing you good luck and happy days,
