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

    It works well. I have only had gel nail polish at home so I don't know how thick this base is suppose to be like. It is thick but it does add thickness to my nails which makes them more durable. I am a nail biter when I do not have gel polish on. So this has helped me grow out my nails

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

    Once I tried red carpet gel products I stopped using all other nail polish on my fingers! I don't use it on my toes though. Too much work. For a manicure its long lasting and my nails are strong. I finally can grow long nails

              It's just as good as Gelish and other popular gel polishes for half the price. I use it with an led lamp for gel polishes at home and get great results.
