Most Helpful Positive Review Best buy
Have used nearly every brand if no chip products from OPI to Gelish and Red Carpet is by far our favorite. Ease of application, wear and excellent color options make it the only brand we use.
Most Helpful Critical Review Tricky to work with
"Structure" is the base coat for this UV line of Nail Lacquer. It is very thick and viscous compared to other more expensive brands. It is a little difficult to control to get a smooth finish because of the jelly consistency. You get what you pay for with this base coat, and unfortunately you can't skip this step.

I've been using the Red carpet manicure system for 3 years now and it's great. I've found that applying three thin layers of base coat helps give me a hard nail. My nails are super thin and bendy. The extra layers of gel help with strength durability. I recommend it to everyone. User error is easy. You must follow all directions/ procedures.

I love the Red Carpet manicure system, and it's impossible to use without this step.
By far THE BEST base coat for gel polish...hands down!
KL from Fargo, ND
Red Carpet is by far the best brand for gel polish nails. It lasts a long time and never chips. It is the only brand that I use.
Love my Red Carpet products!
Lunchlady from Arlington WA
I really love the Red Carpet products. The Structure [base coat} works great. My daughter uses hers as a top coat as well.
It gets the job done
Nancy from El paso, TX
It is a good replacement for the OPI i used to use. It is less product for the same price but both have similar ingredients and work pretty similar as well
A must-have for prolonging manicures
PhatMeow from Rockford, IL
The Sally Hansen gels just weren't cutting it. My manicures would only last a couple of days. I used this base coat and still no chipping 5 days later.
Have been using Red Carpet Gel nails for about 5 years.

Have been doing my own gel nails, I find it easy and saves lots of money by nothaving to go to a salon.
SA from Georgia
During application the polish kept shriveling up, wrinkling, peeling and pulling away from my cuticles, hard to explain but it was the weirdest thing. I couldn't figure out why it was doing it. I thought maybe it was the base coat and sure enough when I applied the polish without it, it applied perfectly. There's something terribly off with this formula that really messes with the polish. Returned this product
Best Gel nail polish to do at home yourself!
Debbie from Geneva, IL
Love everything about it. Only have hard time putting color on the tip of the nail as my nails are short!
Great buy. Buy one and get 50% off your next bottle.
BrandyRose from Del Mar, CA
Structure is like a base coat. Easy to apply. Little bit of an odor - not bad.
I will repurchase

Wish the bottle was bigger
BrittneyJo from Kansas City, MO
I purchased the base coat because I use the Red Carpet color polish and top coat. It all works well together
I've been using this product for years!
Auntie from St. George, UT
This is a base coat to a several step gel polish process. It's important to use the coordinating products to get the best result.
Fantastic base for gel manicures
Anne from Ashburn, VA
I used to use a lot of normal polish, but I found it chipping off so easily that I got sick of putting new stuff on every other day. I decided to get into gel and bought this as a base coat. I found this one to be very smooth going on and dried very easily with my gel lamp. I would definitely buy this product again.

Reasonably good results, but didnt last long enough.
Karen from Millersville, md.
Fairly happy at first, but basically one nail peeled a bit, the rest seem to be pretty good after 6 days, I am surprised! May just need practice. I much prefer doing myself if it will stay on for 2 weeks. Will try again!
Very happy so far

I am relatively new to the gel mani world but so far had good success with RCM products. I use both this base coat and their 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 coats, 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.
Basecoat for shellac.

I like this basecoat in comparison to "sensational" brand, from another store.
