    Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 Starter Kit:

    I wanted salon results without investing the time and the expense and to be able to "get a mani or mani-pedi" at precisely the time it suits me. I don't like my feet worked on, I just want my toenails neatened up and painted. I don't like to get them done often, but I like to be able to change colors for an occasion if I need to, without paying for that whole service. I have only used this system for what seems a short time and already I have saved several hundred dollars over what I would have spent at the salon. Some other brands of polish last a little longer but take longer to get off. It seems that the brands that don't last quite as long are easy to get off with a soak and I'm fine with that. If you like the idea of that salon done look but you don't necessarily feel like getting your toes and fingers done there is pampering....then this is certainly a system for you. Once you get the hang of it (and it doesn't take much...you will figure out your own way that works) you will be absolutely tickled with it!

    Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 Starter Kit:

    I would go to a salon and pay about $35 dollars for Gel manicure. This product pays off just after 2 uses. I can't use regular polish because my nails are weak and break easily even when my nails are trimmed really short. I can go for 3 weeks with gel and not have to worry about chipping and breaking.
    2 things I don't like about Gel Polish. 1. Takes longer to remove. 2. Some gel polish (not this brand particular) like the pink ones always fade into an almost white color after just a couple days. I don't know why.

        I used the manicure set to save time and money on my nails. I usually just paint my nails with regular polish, but it always chips with in days or smudges with in an hour. I had to return the first kit I bought because the lamp didn't work. I almost bought a whole different set but decided to give this kit another try. When I went in the store to return the kit and I asked the customer service clerk if she could verify the light worked and it did. I took it home, all the instructions are easy to follow but very tiny to read. After the first hand was done I was very pleased with the coverage and the steps. The next day I was canning all day and washing a lot of dishes and dealing with knives. The manicure stood up to all different elements. It also took half the time of the salon. The next day I did my toes, again, very easy.

          Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 Starter Kit:

          I loved this system and was hooked on it, used it for 14 months and started to notice my nails were changing. When removing polish the correct way, my nails were starting to peel the outer layer and I would "protect" them again by using the gel system again because they were so soft and the gel system added "strength".....or so I thought. I have now eliminated this system and am desperately trying to get my nails to be healthy again, they are ruined. They bend, spilt, peel. I will accept doing my nails with regular polish and touching up polish if need be. I followed all directions to the "T" -- the look was always fantastic but the end result is horrible.

          Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 Starter Kit:

          The nail polish and hardening effect of the product is great. My nails are very weak, break easily and peel. This nail polish stays on much like acrylic salon nails. However, the nail lamp was faulty from the beginning. This is an expensive part of the kit to replace. I was only able to use it twice and now it won't work at all. My friend has had the same experience with it working intermittently, but hers hasn't failed altogether. This nail product is great,but the lamps is the problem. I recommend the nail products if you have a lamp that works.

              I have been doing my nails since grade school. I went to cosmetology school in the nineties, and used to do acrylics on my friends and family.(I personally never cared for the feel)
              I love this product. Read instructions, watch videos, and read blogs or pinterest for tips though.
              My suggestions
              1. Don't expect perfection the first time. Everything improves with practice.
              2. Personally I found doing 4 nails start to finish and then 4 nails... easiest I didn't have to worry about smudges etc.
              3. The red is gorgeous but buy a lighter more forgiving color to start with until you get the hang of it. Red is not an easy forgiving color.
              4. Try not to get on skin but if you miss some and it gets cured you can trim it with cuticle nippers.

                  I am in love and will never return to regular polish. Personally, I hate painting my nails with regular polish because it looks nice for a day and is chipped as soon as I do the dishes. I was tired of my nails never looking nice, so I decided to invest in this product. Boy, I am not sorry! First of all, it definitely takes patience because there are multiple steps that must be followed. If you do not follow all the steps or cut corners then you will be disappointed. Use THIN coats. It takes me about 1 hour or a little less to soak off my old polish and replace it, but it will easily last 2 weeks! This is perfect for me. It may not be worth it if you will want to change your color often. Be mindful that this polish takes a little patience to remove as well. Overall it is worth every dime and I am so happy I don't have to go to a salon to have it done! and my nails grew!!

                    I love this product. I am a RN and have to wash my hands constantly, so regular nail polish would be chipped off within a day usually, plus I don't have the patience to wait for regular nail polish to dry with out messing it up, so this product is great. I love the fact that is is immediately dry and lasts 7-10 days, depending on growth. It doesn't chip, and always looks great. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone. I also like that is uses LED light instead of UV light.
