      Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 Starter Kit:

      This kit is amazing! I have been doing my own nails for a while with regular nail polish, but I'm kind of hard on my nails and they would start chipping within 2-3 days. I am a perfectionist and can't have one chipped nail, so I'd have to take all the polish off. I was doing my nails at least twice a week. I did some research on gel manicure kits and decided on this one. It had good reviews, and they have a lot of polish color options. I splurged on the "pro" light versus the portable one because it had better reviews, and it takes less time to cure the polish. I would definitely suggest getting the pro light. Anyway, I used this kit for the first time 10 days ago, and my nails have not chipped once! They look great. Also, the cuticle oil that comes with this smells amazing. I will admit that there are a lot of steps in the process, but I think they're necessary for a good, long-lasting manicure. It really doesn't take long though, especially since you don't have to wait between steps (and especially using the pro light). I didn't think to time myself until halfway through the process, but I'm going to guess that it took me 30-45 minutes to do - I know it was less than an hour. One thing I have learned from my first application is the importance of thin coats, especially by the cuticle. I was a little heavy-handed on the top coat, and I had to file the polish down a little by my cuticles so there wasn't a ledge as my nails grew out. I am so excited by this kit, and I keep telling everyone I know about it. It's my best purchase in a while. I can't wait to use it again!

      Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 Starter Kit:

      I researched many different at home gel manicure kits before buying the Red Carpet Starter 45 Kit. I looked at cost, buyer reviews and availability. I have been incredibly happy with this product! It was on sale at Ulta plus I used my $3.50 off (every little bit helps). The directions are easy to follow and the first time I used it my polish stayed on beautifully for over 12 days before I started peeling it off. You must make sure you seal the end of your nails and keep it off your cuticle for the best results. I took my time and did a really nice job. The one draw back is that it does take some time to apply nicely. I think I will get quicker the more I use it. Overall, I am in love with this kit!

                I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to get the same look I get at the salon and was wasting my money. My first attempt was a bit rocky but on my second try I learned that thin coats are the secret to a great manicure. I couldn't be happier.

                  I really like this kit but they need to list all the other things you will need that are not included. You don't know that until you open it & read the directions.

                      I love the red carpet manicure brand so much! Its easy to learn how to apply and its like riding a bike, you never seem to forget how to do it! Salon nails are so expensive and I will never go to a salon to get my nails done again. With this kit you get gorgeous nails that look professional. Just remember not to rush or you wont get the nails you're expecting.

                        I've always had issues with regular nail lacquer. I'll clean my nails, file them, smooth them, apply the base coat, color, top coat. I've tried just about every brand, but it's all the same. It chips/peels off within 24 hours after I spend 2 or more hours doing my nails. I had heard that gel manicures can last 2+ weeks, but I was always hesitant to pay the money, just to have it look bad the next day. Well, I'd seen this kit on Ulta.com in the past. I'd considered buying it probably a dozen times before I finally had some extra money and took the plunge. I'm so glad I did. Not only did this take less time than the average manicure, but it has lasted at least twice as long for me. It's only been about 48 hours, but I don't have a single chip in my nails, and it hasn't started peeling off! I know that's a pretty small amount of time, but I swear it has to be some sort of record for me. I don't usually write reviews on things, but I'm so happy I found this kit. It is a lot of steps, but it's not that much more work than using regular nail polish and the drying time is 10x shorter.

                          I usually pay to get gel nails done so it lasts longer, I can only get regular polish to last a little over a week. I would say this whole routine takes me about 1-1/2 hours, but it's totally worth it! I am still getting the hang of perfecting my polishing skills, but this has been so well worth the money! I am telling ALL my friends about it when they compliment me on my nails :)

                              Loved this product! Easy to use and I like how easy the polish peeled off after a week and a half, making it easy to change colors. I have also been doing my moms nails with it and she loves it too.
