          Chipped after the first day! It was definitely easy to apply..... But not worth it. Very disappointed.

          Love this product! It's not the most long lasting but it definitely lasts longer than nail polish! The fact that it's a one-step product so I don't have to apply a base coat and a top coat saves me SO much time and makes it my go-to gel and so worth it even if it's not the longest lasting!

          Although colors are true to its color they chip of so easily. They last about 2 days before starting to chip off.

              Absolutely the worst nail polish I've ever tried! There were tiny dots that appeared when applying. After 30 minutes of air drying I could literally wipe off the polish with a paper towel - it was that wet! Save yourself the headache and don't buy this product!

                This goes on nicely and two coats wear for about 5 or 6 days before chipping. Its pricey too.

                Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Neutral Instant Manicure Gel Polish Collection:

                I bought a few of these Instant Manicure Gel polishes as a faster alternative to the regular gel polish I usually use from Red Carpet. I have been giving myself at home Red Carpet gel manicures for over a year. This was my first time trying the Instant Manicure Gel polish. I had a TERRIBLE experience. After curing the polish, I felt a terrible sharp pain in my nail beds and finger tips. After the pain did not subside the following day, I removed the polish only to find that my nail beds had been bruised!! It has been a week now and I still have terrible pain in my fingertips and nail beds. I will be returning all of these polishes and never using again. I can not believe this happened. Hoping the pain subsides soon.. terrible product.

                Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Neutral Instant Manicure Gel Polish Collection:

                I grabbed a couple of the red and pinked toned colors on clearance at my local Ulta store. I was skeptical but willing to give it a try since I wanted a faster alternative to the traditional 3-step gel application. I could not be happier.

                About how I prep my nails: I always buff them, and use an alcohol wipe.

                This particular formula requires NO basecoat. So I just painted on a thin layer and cured it with one turn under my LED light from Jamberry (probably like 30 seconds.) Applied the second coat, and repeated the one turn under my LED light. For the pink color I applied 3 coats but for the true red coat I only had to apply two.

                I actually LOVE the smell that the cured polish has. It seems a little fruity.

                I was able to go 10 days before a single nail chipped. I even worked with acrylic paints for a craft project halfway through this time and it did not effect the polish underneath.

                The con here I would say is that you still have to soak them off with acetone or nail polish remover. But given that there are far less costs, the amount of time you soak is greatly reduced which is safer for your nail health.

                The pink did leave a bit of a stain on my nail, but it was easily buffed off with a fine light buffing.
