    Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 Starter Kit:

    I've been getting gel manicures for 5 years now. Before that it was acrylic nails. So it's safe to say I've had a lot of experience. It's hard to find great nail people when you move a lot. And I love not having to do my nails all the time. Who has time for that?

    I was hesitant to start doing my own gel nails, but I'm so glad I took the plunge!! I literally suck at doing my own nails....like a 3 year old could do better than me with regular nail polish. But this is the easiest and most effect gel system around. The directions were so easy to follow and even with my first time, they look better than going to a salon!! I'm so hard on my nails too, and after a week, they look as good as the night I did them. I can't wait to buy more colors and keep doing them myself. I also like that I can do this on my toes, so I'll be trying that in the future! Definit buy, ladies!!

          I am so happy I purchased this product. I was spending $80 every 2 weeks for myself and my daughter's no chip manicure. This item paid for itself immediately. I do not find the polish difficult to apply at all. You just have to have patience. It takes me a little more than hour to remove the old and reapply the new. My nails look beautifully, salon done and the shellac lasts about 10 days (I keep my hands in water a lot). I totally recommend this to anyone who wants to save some money by cutting out salon visits. Best money I have spent!

            Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 Starter Kit:

            I am LOVING this set! I've tried many gel forumlas in the past and I have to say, this is my favorite! The system is easy to use and effective. My longest manicure has lasted just about three weeks. I work retail and I'm a serial hand washer. The polish stays shiny and fresh regardless of how long you've been wearing it. The kit is a great value! I will say however, it does take quite a bit of practice to perfect the craft. If you get ANY over the line of your nail/sides of your nails it can lead to loosening the all over manicure. I recommend using toothpicks to ensure the polish doesn't ooze over the sides. Less is more! Don't hesitate to try this kit! You won't be disappointed!

                  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!

                  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.
