DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

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

I bought a few of these Instant Manicure Gel polishes as a faster alternative to the regular gel polish I usually use from Red Carpet. I have been giving myself at home Red Carpet gel manicures for over a year. This was my first time trying the Instant Manicure Gel polish. I had a TERRIBLE experience. After curing the polish, I felt a terrible sharp pain in my nail beds and finger tips. After the pain did not subside the following day, I removed the polish only to find that my nail beds had been bruised!! It has been a week now and I still have terrible pain in my fingertips and nail beds. I will be returning all of these polishes and never using again. I can not believe this happened. Hoping the pain subsides soon.. terrible product.

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

I grabbed a couple of the red and pinked toned colors on clearance at my local Ulta store. I was skeptical but willing to give it a try since I wanted a faster alternative to the traditional 3-step gel application. I could not be happier.

About how I prep my nails: I always buff them, and use an alcohol wipe.

This particular formula requires NO basecoat. So I just painted on a thin layer and cured it with one turn under my LED light from Jamberry (probably like 30 seconds.) Applied the second coat, and repeated the one turn under my LED light. For the pink color I applied 3 coats but for the true red coat I only had to apply two.

I actually LOVE the smell that the cured polish has. It seems a little fruity.

I was able to go 10 days before a single nail chipped. I even worked with acrylic paints for a craft project halfway through this time and it did not effect the polish underneath.

The con here I would say is that you still have to soak them off with acetone or nail polish remover. But given that there are far less costs, the amount of time you soak is greatly reduced which is safer for your nail health.

The pink did leave a bit of a stain on my nail, but it was easily buffed off with a fine light buffing.

      I have always been attracted to black nail polish- this takes 2 coats and I love that you don't need a top or base. I do use a top shine because I like my nails super shiny, but you definitely don't need to. Love it!

        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.
