      Works, but takes a long time to cure

      Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Portable LED Light:

      I bought this item in February and it cost about $12.50 (I have no idea why it is double the price right now). It says that it is made in the US, but on the box, only the "design package" is made in the US. The light itself is made in China. However, I only bought this light and used it with different gel polishes (Christina gel top and base coat with IBD gel polish). It takes 2 minutes to cure the base and top coat and I used about 3 minutes to cure the color just to be safe!
      It is a good starter gel curing lamp, but it definitely took me an hour to cure all the coats the polish needed to darken the color.

      Works, but longer drying time

      Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Portable LED Light:

      I bought 3 of these to give away as gifts when they were on sale, because the starter kits can be a bit pricey. This item is coupon friendly too. I gave 1 away already to a co-worker and she loves it! She said it works great and the only thing she said was strange is the way you have to hold it to dry your nails. She has not had any problems with drying her nails, though I noticed the box says it takes 1-3 mins to cure each coat. This is longer than other lights. If you can afford the pricier light or the starter kits, then I would suggest going that route since it would be quicker. This light does work well she said so I wanted to write a review in case you are on the fence about trying it out.

        This is a great product for the money. It's very easy to use. I love the automatic shut off. My only con is the long drying time.

        Considering how cheap this light was I didn't expect a lot out of it, but it does work really well (I actually just purchased another one, I like it so much). I have done my nails a few times now and the polish seems to last and the process goes fairly quick and easy.

        Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Portable LED Light:

        Was really excited when I bought this, but I was not aware of the proper procedures nessasary in order for the nail gel to work properly. I just used basic clear coat, and a tan gel polish, and it looked lovely and all, but it didn't dry properly, and fuzz from my sweater stuck to it. :( It then peeled right off the next day like nothing.

        It was a little awkward to use at first, (I would recommend holding it in your palm with your four fingers underneath the light.) considering that the example picture of the woman laying her fingers down on the pad did not work. (maybe I just have short midget fingers.)

        Great product, just wish the check out girls would have inquired me about the necessary products before I walked out of the store. Feel like it would have worked a lot better if I had the right products.

        Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Portable LED Light:

        This light is so much better than the old one. Before, I could always see the tip of my nail and no matter what I did, it wasn't quite as good as the salon. After my first use with this light and the same polishes and techniques, it turned out even better! I love this light and I love Red Carpet Manicure!!
