      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!

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

          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.

          Don't use in sunlight!

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

              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.

                        Had my gel polish on for 2 weeks and it still hadn't chipped. Had to take it off though because my nails were growing out and started getting a gap at the bottom .

                                  I love this line of products. Very easy to use and VERY economical. Love the fact I can change my color at 10 pm without having to go to the salon. Lasts several weeks.

                                  I love this product including all red carpet manicure nail polishes. This base coat works extremely well and leaves me with a perfect manicure that last around 2 weeks. My only con to this polish is that the bottle tends to become clumpy after 3-4 uses and I end up throwing it away.
