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

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!

        Big mess

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

            I was trying to give myself a pedicure but ended up with a big mess. The basecoat hardened on the brush by the time I finished with my first foot.I tried to use it on my second foot anyway and ended up with big globs on my toenails which hardened immediately. Needless to say, this was not the look I was going for. When I went to return the product, the sales person said that she uses it all the time and I probably got a bad batch.

                  This is a great product with a fair price. It's not cheap, but neither is the quality. I feel like it is a great bang for your buck. Plus with Ulta points, and coupons in the mail and email you can save even more!

                      Yes, it takes more than an hour from start to finish for my full manicure (which includes removal of old polish). Yes, it takes awhile but, once completed, I'm good for about three weeks! Also, I am a value/bargain shopper, so having my own gel kit saves me each and every time I do it myself.

                          This base coat works really well and holds tight to the nail -- no chipping or peeling until 2 weeks.
                          However, I used this at my kitchen table where there was sunlight shining in and the sun started hardening the polish as I was painting it onto my nails! Before I even put my fingers under the UV light to cure it, the polish brush had hardened. I love this, but I will never use it with my blinds open again!

                              I really like the ease of application with the brush. This gel base coat works better than the Sally's name brand I was using, and it was a little less expensive.

                                Bought this because I liked a color from this gel nail line. However, I found it gloppy and difficult to control or form a smooth, uniform coat with. I returned it.
