            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.

                  Not clear instructions that this is not regular nail polish. Waste of money.

                    "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.

                      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.
