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

    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.

          I purchased the base coat because I use the Red Carpet color polish and top coat. It all works well together

            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.

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

            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.
