Very happy so far

Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Step 2: Structure Base Coat Gel:

I am relatively new to the gel mani world but so far had good success with RCM products. I use both this base coat and their top coat and have no complaints. The only other product I have tried so far is Sensationail base/top coat which I found harder to apply than RCM ones. Sensaionail product is two in one, so it is a better value, however it was much thinner in consistency and kept overflowing all over my cuticles, no matter how little I tried to apply. As a result I spent more time on clean ups. RCM coats are very thick and easier to control during application. With proper application manicure lasts good two coats, mind you I don't even buff my bare nail nor use extensive "strippers" such as their "erase" product. I simply wash my hands, make sure they are completely dry, then wipe the nails with acetone and proceed to applications.

So I do recommend both their base and top coats.

    Have used nearly every brand if no chip products from OPI to Gelish and Red Carpet is by far our favorite. Ease of application, wear and excellent color options make it the only brand we use.

        I have been using the Red Carpet Manicure gel polish for over 3 years now and I've gotten many friends and family members hooked as well. The polish is easy to use and stays on at least a week, longer if you don't pick at your nails (which unfortunately I do a lot). I love it and will never go back to regular polish.

              I use only the structure and the light, to have long & strong, natural looking nails. Takes some practice to get them even. Saves a ton of money vs going to a salon - and I don't really care about the nail art - Classic and natural is my style.

                Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Step 2: Structure Base Coat Gel:

                The item itself may work well with the same brand of polish, but it does NOT mix well with the other UV gels I have and stayed sticky on my nails, even after multiple uses of the light. It also causes a layer to form between the color and itself and the color peels off quickly. Really annoying and then almost impossible to get off.
