New Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Line: Showtime!

Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Showtime

Hello everyone! As I've mentioned, I haven't been able to update as frequently as I prefer because of some real life issues. I should be getting back into the swing of things very soon, though! For now, here is a shade from the new Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Line I've seen popping up around drugstores. I believe this is going to replace the regular Colorstay line (now on clearance at CVS!). It's really too bad, because the Colorstay base coat is AMAZING. Oh well, such is life!

Anyway, as for the polish, Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Showtime is a purple shimmer packed with fuchsia and blue flakies. This shade, like all purples, is a bit hard to capture. I would say it leans a bit bluer than these pictures seem. The formula was a bit thick for me, it was plenty opaque but still took three fiddly coats just to make sure everything was even. I don't know if this is the "gel" quality or just this particular shade, supposedly these require no base coat, but I wasn't a fan. I don't care a lot about longevity of polish since I change it so often, and I'm not willing to put up with a crap application for it. I will put up with it if the color is pretty enough...and I think this one is!

I can't wait to get back to blogging regularly, I have some exciting stuff I've been waiting to post about!
