I love this kit so much I bought a spare for myself and another for my mum!
I have the pro-kit .. The lamp cures each layer of gel in 45secs whereas the travel lamp takes 2mins ..which will greatly increase the time spent doing your mani. I have over 50'colours now as I've been using this for over 2yrs.. The range of colours is awesome ! When done correctly ( can be fiddly get the layers thin so take your time .. Thinner the better ! ) don't forget to 'cap' the tip of the nails with each coat and it lasts and lasts . Very high shine salon finish and really helps my nails grow. Can also use with regular polish as long as you let the polish dry before adding gel top coat . Also you can paint normal polish in top of your manicure and remove it with normal polish leaving the gel intact . Absolutely recommend this! Saves hundreds on salon gel manis and easy to remove !
I love my red carpet manicure set!!! It's amazing. It was expensive but it's worth every penny!!! The colours they have are amazing it comes wth one gel polish and all the top base and cuticle oil you need as well as the prep items, you have to supply orange sticks, files, and wipes- my manicure is tough and stays on for weeks- I am extemely hard on my nails and gel colour is all that works and lasts- I even use this with regular nail polish and a gel over coat wth the lamp to make any color in my extensive collection work for me.
I received this as a Christmas present and I absolutely LOOOOOVE it! I only wish the bottle of Purify and Erase were in a larger size! The kit itself was rather pricey at my local Target, but I found it on amain . com for about half the price, so score! :) I really love my new obsession to gel polish! It's absolutely wonderful, and very long lasting! Although it claims 14 day wear I have only ever had a mani last for 10 days.... my Mom on the other hand, I do her's every other Saturday and she works in the medical field so she's pretty tough on her hands! I think it is a great kit for those that just want to dip into the gel polish world to see if they like it and then maybe once you get the hang of it, you can upgrade to something more professional!
Bought a Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Nail Kit for my oldest daughter - I am forever stealing it from her bathroom to do my nails! (Between the two of us I think we now have about 25 get colors.) I love the system and my nails stay perfect and unchipped for at least two weeks every time I do them. I found it took me a little while to get used to removing the Gel when I want to re-do them but after a few tries I have gotten much faster at the process. The Gel Nail Polishes are not cheap but they do have a nice selection of colors and nail art decorations available.
I got a kit that included a travel LED light, and a free colour of my choice on clearance so I figured it was a great opportunity to try it out. I didn't buy it with the intention of wearing it for colour, rather as a way to make it easier to grow my nails longer as I am very hard on my hands, so I chose a shade that matched the color of my nails/skin.. It is very easy to do, and the instructions are very clear. It really does last two weeks, I have even had it last well into three weeks. As a base for regular polish, I have found that painting my polish over my gel manicure, my polish is very smooth and has lasted the two weeks as well. I have been using this for over a month now, and have noticed hardly any lifting at the cuticle. I highly recommend this product!
I LOVE THIS!!!! Was so happy that I came across this in stores!! Had been wanting to try a gel color system for a while but was nervous. Gel nail color is a combination of gel nails and polish, it does not add lenght but the polish has an amazing shine and durability to it, they claim it can last weeks! I Came across this kit at Lawton's while I was shopping and based on Price (about $100) and the amount of colors that are available ( close to 60) I decided to give it a try!!
I am so glad I did, the product was easy to use and came with good instructions, anyone who paints their own nails at home can use this system and the results are amazing! The color is bright my nails have such a shiny smooth finish!! Normally nail polish (even high end) usually only last a couple of days for me, I have had this on now for 4 days and it looks the same as it did when I put it on!!! Also becasue it is gel nail color and is cured under an led lamp ( that came with the kit) is adds a protective layer to the nail to keep it from breaking and peeling ( this is a huge problem for me) my nails feel amazing!! The only 2 downsides are that although almost everything you need for the application comes in the kit it was missing a file, a buffer and orange sticks, not a huge deal and they do sell an essentials package for like $5.00 that has those items in it, but if i had not known I needed them and just picked up the kit I would not have been able to use it until I went back to the store. Also the nail polish that is included in the kit is a bright red, it is nice just not a color I would normally pick to wear, so it would be nice if there was another option. One other thing is they have 2 kits avail the pro kit and another one that includes a travel lamp, what you do not see on the packag is that the travel kit is uv and the pro is led, that means that layers cure with the pro kit in about 45 seconds but may take up to 2 min with the travel kit!! That time may not seem lke much but when you are doing 4-5 layers per hand it adds up, so I reccomend paying the aprox $20 extra to get the pro kit!! The polishes are very affordably priced, so it will not take me to long to get a good collection of colors going :) I HIGHLY reccomend this for anyone and everyone!!!
