Red Carpet Manicure | Red Carpet Reddy


I finally purchased my own at home LED gel kit. The Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 Train Case is the one I chose, and within it, came the Red Carpet Manicure Red Carpet Reddy. On its own, the polish  retails for $9.99 and can be found at Ulta, ulta.com, and redcarpetmanicure.com.

Red Carpet Reddy is a gorgeous cherry red creme color. It leans more towards blue red, which I find to be my "perfect" red. The first coat was somewhat sheer, the second coat still wasn't fully opaque, so I added a third coat. Finally, I topped it off with the Red Carpet Ready Brilliance Seal and Shine Top Coat. As you can tell, there is so much shine! That is one thing I love about gel polish.

So far I have had it on for a week and have not experienced any chipping whatsoever. However, I do want to take the polish off as I can't stand having red on my nails for too long! I would much prefer a pink or a dark color, so I will experiment then.

Since this is my first at home gel mani, it was a little messy as I was not use to the formula and the process. But I think that after a few more times, I will get the hang of it and have a perfect manicure.

Update: I've had this manicure for two weeks now and they have still held up! I've been in the pool, used my hands quite often, and all I see is nail growth and thats about it. They could probably stay on for much longer, but I don't want to see nail growth on top of my nails! I definitely think these gel polishes are high quality.

  6. I love the top coat that you used in addition to your red nail polish, it's giving me so much life (or should that be shine?) right now. There's something very chic and glam about red nails.
