      I have been using the Red Carpet gel manicure products for a year now and I love it! I usually take it off after 10-14 days! It grows out before it chips off! I generally get about a week, tops, out of a salon gel manicure! I am hooked!!

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

          After using other gel polishes and having a problem with them lifting, this base coat is a nice change. Easy to use, a little thicker than others, but as the name states, it builds a nice foundation. On day 6 after lots of cooking and dishes and there is no chip or damage at all.

              this is a nice base coat. I have never had an issue with peeling or not drying properly.
              Someone whos never used gel products might find it tricky, but that would be true with any gel product (in my experience)
              if you are looking for a good gel base coat at a reasonable price, I'd give this one a try

              An essential part of Red Carpet Gel Nails. I have been using the entire Red Carpet system for about one and a half years and won't let my nails go without! It protects against breakage, always looks shiny, coverage is excellent. No risk of fungus like artificial nails. No wearing off the color on tips. It's takes a little practice to apply all the steps but it is worth it! Great money-saver with looks comparable to salon nails!
