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

      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.

        I actually use this product with my Jamberry nail wraps. It makes the nailbeds perfect for the wraps the stick. I use prep, then Orly Bonder and my Jamberries stay in place for over two weeks.

            This product I use with my gel polish regime. It gives me the satisfaction that my nails won't get any kind of fungus. I've been using this product for over a year.

                Not needed - alcohol is just as good

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

                Reviewers are right in that proper prep is needed for a long lasting mani. You just don't need this product. You get exactly the same results with 90+% isopropyl alcohol. Save your money for nice polish.
