    Comments about Red Carpet Manicure French Manicure Kit:

    I love red carpet! !! This french manicure is excellent and will always be the one I buy. It does not chip and has stayed on nicely being in the pool so much this summer. I did not use the stickers because i always do my tips with a brush and acetone and free hand the smile line so i cannot speak for stickers only the colors. The White Is Opaque Enough For My Liking And The Pink Shade Is A We Some But Have Not Used The Cream Color yet.You will not go wrong with anything red carpet and especially the French manicure kit

        Comments about Red Carpet Manicure French Manicure Kit:

        The pink and peach color are as good as any other gel colors I've used. The white is a true white. However I find it hard to apply. You do need some good practice. Even so, it might still not come out as nice as professionally done. The decorative decal came with the set is very nice. Sticks well, last a long time.

          Comments about Red Carpet Manicure French Manicure Kit:

          the stickers that are supposed to be the guides for painting the white lines aren't all that great. They don't stick well to the nail which resulted in smeared white lines under the stickers that I didn't see until after it had dried and I took the stickers off. The pink and peach colors are basically tinted clears but the white is truly white. I will try it again without using the stickers, just being careful, and maybe it will turn out better.

            To all of those who say they can't use this then they must not be doing it right. I steady my hand and free style the white tips and use the product exactly as described and it works PERFECTLY every time. Thank you Red Carpet Nails for creating your gel nails. I love doing these at home for a fraction of the cost and I get them done right every time.

              I am so pleased with the GEL Polish. I have been putting GEL on my nails myself (not in a salon) for almost 10 years now. The GEL polish is much thinner than the traditional GEL and is much faster drying. The shine is fabulous!

              Best Uses

                Comments about Red Carpet Manicure French Manicure Kit:

                I have done 3 french manicures using this kit, with the guides. I had more bleeding the first time because I applied the white too thickly each coat (I used two coats). The second time I had slightly less bleeding. I was able to scrape the bleeds off somewhat using the flat side of an orangewood stick after curing the white completely. The third attempt I nearly eliminated the bleeding by applying super thin coats (just two minor bleeds in the whole manicure), unfortunately even after three coats of white I still don't think it turned out opaque enough. I use the nude-ish color over the white, just one coat, and it basically eliminates the ridge of the white tip that another reviewer mentioned. I am considering buying a different brand of guides that may work better to eliminate bleeds and also buying another brand of white gel polish that may be more opaque, if I can find one. To be honest I paint the white significantly thicker than the actual white of my nails to accomodate growth and also because I keep my nails pretty short and the manicure lasts me for 2 weeks most of the time, if I only put the white polish over the whites of the nails then the three thin coats of white would be fine, its just the area of the nail that is not white under the manicure that the white is not opaque enough for. I still prefer this over a $50 gel french at the salon! I have been using RCM for about 18 months now and would highly recommend it to anyone. One tip - I use the pro light and I have learned to always do two cycles to cure the top/last coat, if I don't it seems like the edges of some nails do not get fully cured and are dull after I wipe at the end with Purify.

                  Would not cure. Tried both LED & a 36W UV. A complete waste of money.
