      Best top coat!

      Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Step 2: Brilliance Seal & Shine Top Coat:

      It's the only one I used. Came from another store brand and that one tends to not last nor does it provide the shine and that "thick" look like Red Carpet does. Using this makes my gel manicures last a very long time.

        Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Step 2: Brilliance Seal & Shine Top Coat:

        The applicator brush on this polish is nice and thick. The formula goes on pretty smoothly, although a LOT tends to drip even if you've removed excess. The downside is that this chips SO quickly. I couldn't find my go-to Sensationail base/top coat, so I went with this one instead. I have been doing gel nails for about 5 years now, and have never had chipping problems in the first two or three weeks, but with this top coat, I had chips on all fingers within three days. So disappointing! I would return if I didn't feel guilty doing so after using it haha. Will definitely not buy this brand of top coat again.

            Very happy so far

            Comments about Red Carpet Manicure Step 2: Brilliance Seal & Shine Top Coat:

            I am relatively new to the gel mani world but so far had good success with RCM products. I use both their base coat and this top coat and have no complaints. The only other product I have tried so far is Sensationail base/top coat which I found harder to apply than RCM ones. Sensaionail product is two in one, so it is a better value, however it was much thinner in consistency and kept overflowing all over my cuticles, no matter how little I tried to apply. As a result I spent more time on clean ups. RCM coats are very thick and easier to control during application. With proper application manicure lasts good two weeks, mind you I don't even buff my bare nail nor use extensive "strippers" such as their "erase" product. I simply wash my hands, make sure they are completely dry, then wipe the nails with acetone and proceed to applications. So I do recommend both their base and top coats.

              I have tried other top coats and have not had it work as well ir last as long. This is my favorite top coat for gel nails.
