Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy in Checkmate

Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy in 540 “Checkmate”: Streaktastic

After falling in love with Revlon Colorsty Gel Envy in 500 “Ace of Spades” I am a bit disappointed in the latest shade I’ve tried, “Checkmate” – a pale, nudey-beige. This shade was totally streaky! I didn’t have that issue with Ace of Spades.

After 2 coats, Checkmate looked ok (not great), but as soon as I applied the clear top coat, it was like it removed some of the colour. It ended up being a bit of a streaktastic mess. I also decided that this pale nude shade doesn’t look the greatest on fair skin. Oh well!

I wonder if anyone else has found some inconsistency amongst the different shades with the Gel Envy polishes?

Thanks for stopping by ❤

    Eek. That sounds like a color I would otherwise like, too
