    Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Step 2: Structure Base Coat Gel:

    I use only the structure and the light, to have long & strong, natural looking nails. Takes some practice to get them even. Saves a ton of money vs going to a salon - and I don't really care about the nail art - Classic and natural is my style.

      Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Step 2: Structure Base Coat Gel:

      The item itself may work well with the same brand of polish, but it does NOT mix well with the other UV gels I have and stayed sticky on my nails, even after multiple uses of the light. It also causes a layer to form between the color and itself and the color peels off quickly. Really annoying and then almost impossible to get off.

            Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Step 2: Structure Base Coat Gel:

            It works well. I have only had gel nail polish at home so I don't know how thick this base is suppose to be like. It is thick but it does add thickness to my nails which makes them more durable. I am a nail biter when I do not have gel polish on. So this has helped me grow out my nails

            Once I tried red carpet gel products I stopped using all other nail polish on my fingers! I don't use it on my toes though. Too much work. For a manicure its long lasting and my nails are strong. I finally can grow long nails
