      Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Step 1: Prep Max Adhesion Sanitizer:

      I use this product all the time. I was a CND Shellac addict but my nail artist moved away. So I started doing my own nails at home. I bought the Red Carpet line to use at home. I liked the color options. The prep part was a total MUST HAVE. The gel adhesion was not as good without it. YOU have to remove your oils to get max adhesion. Alcohol is super drying to my surrounding nail/finger areas and this is so much better since it easy to concentrate on the nail itself. I also use this before applying Jamberry wraps. Works awesome! Wraps stay on longer and don't lift at all! Super happy with this product.

                    I love Red Carpet gel manicure. My nails never would grow without peeling, chipping or breaking, and now I have nails that people compliment me on. I have used these products for a year now, and will continue to use them. I even do manicures on my 2 daughters, and they love their nails too.

                            I bought the Red carpet LED gel manicure machine about a year ago and have since then bought about 12 colors, along with the structure base coat & Brilliance Top coat. I was excited to do my nails myself and save on 1 or 2 manicures/month. I have been disappointing with this brand. my Gel manicures normally would last up to 3 weeks when I git them done at the salon but with my red carpet machine, it lasts no longer than about 5-6 days before it starts peeling on the corners of my nails. I bought this Prep Max Adhesion sanitizer thinking that it would help the polish stay on longer but it did not help at all. The only thing it did was make my nails super dry. Because all it is really is pure rubbing alcohol. If you are going to buy this product, you might as well go to the drugstore and purchase a 2$ huge bottle of rubbing alcohol.

                              Applying Prep Max keeps my nail polish on much better. It lasts days longer.
