Red Carpet Manicure “Draped In Rubies”

“Draped In Rubies” is one of the newest colours from Red Carpet Manicure:

2013-02-012This is a gorgeous deep red with lots of sparkle.  As always, with Red Carpet Manicure gel polishes, the finish is amazingly glossy and extremely durable.  I’m not usually a fan of red polish which makes me very hard to please and “Draped In Rubies” does just that.  I really love this shade, it’s just perfect.   The light here has been terrible as it’s been overcast and raining all day, so it was difficult to capture the true beauty of this colour.  I hope I have done it justice.

The thing I love most about Red Carpet Manicure gel polishes is that I can get straight on with the rest of my day of cooking and washing up etc and still have stunning nails at the same time.

I would definitely recommend this colour to anyone who uses gel polishes.  It has a sparkle and depth that would rival any polish on the market today 😀


Red Carpet Manicure “Camera Shy” & “White Hot”

Red Carpet Manicure sell some really good value kits including one for doing French Manicures.  The kit includes three RCM polishes.  Here I’ve used “Camera Shy” and “White Hot”.

2013-01-026I’ve added some gems and a decal.  I love the softness of this look but I thought it would be a good idea to add OPI “Pirouette my whistle”.

2013-01-027This looks amazing in real life.  Unfortunately, it took me ages to capture this on camera as the light is so bad here today.  I think it was worth all the effort though.

This is such a change from my usual bold, bright nail polishes but I really like it.  I think it would be just perfect for a wedding or everyday if you didn’t add the gems.

Red Carpet Manicure “Midnight Affair”

I was so impressed with my Red Carpet Manicure Gel starter kit that I just had to try another colour.

This is “Midnight Affair”

2013-01-017This photo was taken two days after application.

I’ve been looking for a perfect deep, dark blue for ages.  The problem with normal polishes of this colour is that they tend to stain your nails/fingers terribly when you try to remove them – this does not happen with gel polishes

I really am a convert to gel polishes now thanks to Red Carpet Manicure.  I can’t believe how easy they are to apply and remove.  My first attempt with the kit lasted 10 days before I simply got bored of the colour.  I intend to try a top coat over “Midnight Affair” in a few days so I shouldn’t get bored as quickly 😀

Here’s Midnight Affair with Nails Inc “Burlington Arcade” over the top.

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! 😀
