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

"Structure" is the base coat for this UV line of Nail Lacquer. It is very thick and viscous compared to other more expensive brands. It is a little difficult to control to get a smooth finish because of the jelly consistency. You get what you pay for with this base coat, and unfortunately you can't skip this step.

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

    I've been using the Red Carpet Manicure system for about a year now. I have only recently had to buy a new bottle of "Structure." The bottle lasts forever! Great system I general. My manicures last nearly 2 weeks, flawlessly, every time. If I didn't have to wash dishes my hand I bet my manicures would last even longer!

      This is the best gel base coat I have used! Lasts two weeks easy! I love to apply fake French tips and apply this over it for that acrylic DIY at home! Nobody can believe I do my nails myself and it is soooo easy!

        This product is fabulous. This is my second bottle so far and since I tried RCM gel polish back in the fall of 2012...I will never use regular nail polish again! I have brittle nails that always break so I can never grown them out but this product keeps my nails strong and helps grow them out :) If you are thinking about buying the RCM gel products...DO IT .... You won't be disappointed.

          Product drips down onto bottle and gets pretty sticky. It's messy but doesn't interfere with application

                You have to learn to get it on even and in not too heavy a layer as it will leave a "ridge" at the side of the nail. It doesn't stay on as long as I would like. Everything peels off too easily, but LOVE the products.

                    I absolutely recommend this product!
                    I have now become a "pro" on doing my applications!
                    It did take me until my 3rd appliction to achieve perfection!
                    I have been asked by a number of people if I get my nails done professionally!
                    What I love the most is once you purchase the kit the manicures are so much less than going to a shop!

                      I have problem nails with splitting and flaking. With the Red Carpet system I can have nice looking longer nails without having to go to a salon for acrylic nails. It is a great money saver and they look as nice.
