Red Carpet Manicure Gel Starter Kit

Recently I was faced with a life changing dilemma.  Friends and followers of this blog will probably have guessed by now that I absolutely love my nail polish and like to change my colours to suit my mood/wardrobe.  Before Christmas I started a new job, one that I really love but the problem was my nail polish addiction and blog began to get very neglected.
I decided that drastic measures needed to be taken in order to resume a normal yin/yang balance in my tiny universe 😉 …..and this is it ….the Red Carpet Manicure Gel Starter Kit!

recm0068f_1_mNow, I have to be honest here and admit that I didn’t really expect this kit to be any good but I really needed some nail colour that would face the challenge of drying extremely fast and being almost bullet proof.

The Red Carpet Gel Kit provides everything you need to do your own professional gel manicure at home at a fraction of the price.  I followed the instuctions to the letter and was happily surprised with the result.  This is my nails three days after my first attempt with the kit.  This colour is called “Red Carpet Reddy”.

2013-01-008The thing that impresses me the most about this system (apart from the ease of application) is the amazing glossy shine of the polish.  There is a slight wear to the tips of my nails but to be frank I have really tested this beyond the limits of any polish out there and I’m surprised there’s anything left worth taking a photo of on my nails lol.

In conclusion, I have found the answer to my dilemma.  I love this kit and would recommend it to all – just make sure you read the instructions carefully before applying.   Also, don’t over do the buffing and make sure you apply cuticle oil regularly and you should have no problems.

My new dilemma?  What colours to buy next! 😀

  1. I bought the kit too and I think it’s great. It won’t tempt me away completely from ‘proper’ polish but I am impressed with the finish and longevity of it.

    You may have seen that the RCM polishes are quite pricey but a friend bought me a bottle of CCO UV polish from Ebay for Christmas and I applied it in the exact same way RCM and tomorrow, it’ll have been on a week. I have got a little bit of wear on the tips but it still looks good. Plus the bottles are £4 on ebay and there are a lot more choices too.

    What I like too is that I can practice stamping over the top of them. If it doesn’t work out, I can remove with non acetone remover and the original base colour remains unscathed. I don’t know how many times I’ve lost a whole mani because I cocked up the stamping!

    Enjoy 🙂
