    Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Neutral Instant Manicure Gel Polish Collection:

    I'm not sure if I just got a dud product or what, but it was like the brush had clumps stuck to it. This made it incredibly difficult to get an even coat. About 30 minutes after I applied and cured it started to bubble up. I could press on my nail and little holes would let wet polish through. They looked perfect when I did them, but now they look like garbage. I can't wait to get home from work to remove this!

      Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Neutral Instant Manicure Gel Polish Collection:

      I bought this hoping it would cut down on my nail-painting time. I love gel polish but all the steps take forever. This one step polish seems like a shortcut, but literally chipped within 30 minutes of putting it on. The only thing I did within that timespan was take a shower. Don't waste your money- just buy the regular gel polish and spend the time doing it right once.

      • To use as regular gel poish, not one-step polish

      Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Neutral Instant Manicure Gel Polish Collection:

      I bought this to use the light less often. I thought since it was one-step it would be wonderful. I used two coats but could still see through. I still used the top coat and that evening it was already chipping. That is not the case with the regular gel polish.

          Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Neutral Instant Manicure Gel Polish Collection:

          I really wanted to love this nail polish and tried to give it the benefit of the doubt when it started chipping just a few days after application -- we hand wash our dishes and I got my first chip after a long sink session. But even after I reapplied, I got a chip just from showering. Maybe if you could keep your hands dry for two weeks, the polish would live up to it's expectations.

          I will say it's incredibly easy to apply and dries so freaking fast under that UV light, which is great for me because I can't go without smudging a regular, non-UV polish. And the color is gorgeous and exactly what I expected from the bottle. I just wish it didn't cost twice as much as a regular bottle. C'est la vie.

            You must apply this very thin. Just like they do in the salon, that's what makes it last. If it chipping or lifting right away, it's too thick. You can do one or two coats. The firt should be so thin it's semi-translucent. You can add a second similarly thin coat to make it a solid color. I love this polish because I don't have to use a base coat or a top coat. Nails are shiny and pretty. Even if a nail starts to chip before others, it's so easy to take off and only takes 45 seconds to cure that you can easily redo the nail right before you leave out the door.

              This product is so much worth it. It's a bit pricy than your typical nail polish but it lasts so much longer than the drugstore gel nail polishes.

                I've been using the RCM products for a few years now with great success. Decided to try the 5 Minute Ready line. I bought 6 great colors. After one day, had several chipped nails. Chipped nails drive me crazy so I had to repaint. I wasn't looking forward to wrapping and stripping polish off my nails so soon, but I didn't have to. It actually peeled right off. I was able to return the polishes to the store for minimal credit, but it was better than nothing. Don't buy this product, you will be disappointed.

                  I got this polish and was so excited. I put it on, it looked great and went to bed. I woke up and my hands were literally throbbing. I went to work and finally had to take the polish off. Under all of my nails are bruises! Awful, awful experience. I would not be surprised if my thumb nail didn't fall off it is that badly bruised. Never again will I use any red carpet products.
