I wasn't sure if this would be worth the money I was spending. I can say that it IS. I was paying $30, each time I got a gel nail polish manicure at the salon. I am wearing the Ready for the Red Carpet color now and it has been on for two weeks. It is as shiny as the day I put it on. I get compliments from all my friends and co-workers. I have told many people about this product!

I am a bartender and need a nail polish that lasts. I prefer getting a no-chip manicure at the salon but they're too expensive to maintain. Therefore, I decided to invest in this kit in hopes of doing my own nails at home. They turned out beautiful and looked great, but as soon as I started my shift that night, three of my nails immediately chipped after making a few drinks. I was bummed, especially since I spent a good hour and a half solid making sure I painted them to perfection. I am totally bummed and feel like I wasted my money.

          I haven't broken a nail in three months since using this. My work requires frequent hand washing. My nails always used to chip and split. Not my polish--my nails. Since using this, I haven't broken a single nail. And the color lasts 2 weeks. The only reason it doesn't it doesn't last longer than 2 weeks is because the nail grows away from the cuticle. The tips remain chip free for the full two weeks. Follow the instructions and use as thin a coat as possible.

            I've alway had problems with thin, peeling nails and have never been able to polish them for any length of time. If I applied polish, the polish would chip and take a layer of nail with it.
            Not with Red Carpet! The polish stays on and my nails are actually no longer a mess. This provides protection against peeling and does not chip.
            Yes, there are multiple steps, but there are with any manicure. The LED light cures the product quickly and I can go to bed or dig in the garden, clean house or play with the dogs! It stays as it was shiny and beautiful as when first applied.
            This is my first expience with having to remove polish because it has grown out two weeks later!

                I bought this when they had a 50% off coupon code, and I would say it's well worth it, even full price.
                The light is way better than the one that comes in the similar kit at other places.

                The directions are straightforward and the light really works well. That said, it can be tricky to get the coats thin enough and not get the gel polish all over the sides of your fingers next to the nail.

                This kit is perfect for people who have never used gel polish, as it has clear instructions and ALL The pieces, including the light are included here, so it really is a one stop kit. I would recommend picking up some other gel polish colors since red is what comes with this, but other than that, this kit is awesome!

                    This is the best nail product I own. The red color that comes with this kit is exactly the same color of a red solo cup. I'm not a red polish type but this red rocks and I always get compliments on it. It lasts for at least two weeks, if not more, but I always remove because my nails get so long and strong during this time that the space between my cuticle and the polish becomes annoying. I'm sure it would last well into three weeks if I let it go. I type on a daily basis and do all kinds of other things that usually damage my nails, but with this gel on, my nails are like steel! I love it! There is only one down side to this kit - always use the structure and top coat with RCM polishes. I've tried other "LED" polishes and they just don't last as long as the RCM polishes.

                    This kit literally paid for itself in 1.5 uses. So easy to apply and it seem to last longer than the salon versions. My first application lasted 3 weeks and 2 days. No chipping whatsoever. I was afraid i wouldn't be able to get the polish off, but mine came off easily where the polish forms like an edge with new nail growth, i had no problem peeling off the polish without using any solution.
                    I've tried 3 colors so far.. Lot's of compliments.. And I am very happy!

                        This is super easy to use. It doesn't take long at all to do your nails. Take my advice and read the instructions before you try to start out on your own. I didn't clean my nails the first time and they peeled right off. After I cleaned them and did everything over again I haven't had any problems. I get more compliments on my nails now that ever. I truly love this product!!!! I give it an A+++

                            I hesitated to try an at home gel manicure kit because I didn't think that it could be as good as a salon manicure. I'm glad I tried this one, because it is great. The polish cures quickly and stays shiny, and lasts for over a week.

                                I'm not great at doing my nails. My left hand is always pretty, and my right is usually pretty messed up.
                                I haven't had that issue once with this kit. Mostly, I think it's because the polish is thicker.
                                At any rate. I paint my nails in about the same amount of time it took to use just regular air-dry polish. It lasts for quite a while. I get chipps around my dry cuticles before I get any signs of wear around the tips!
                                I've used regular nail polish between layers of base and top coat. Works just fine. Have also used other LED polishes, also, works just fine.
                                I <3 this product! I'm obsessed with it. My nails always look freshly done, even a week or two after. I usually take the polish off because I want a color change more than because it needs fixing!
                                You use a clean up liquid (a few seconds), paint on a primer (a few seconds), put on a base coat and LED it (under 2 minutes total for paint and light), add a color (under 3 or 4 minutes total for paint and light), put on a top coat (Under 2 minutes total for paint and light), and use the clean up liquid again (a few seconds). When you've done that... your nails are shiny as all get out... AND DRY! No waiting around for them to set or anything! That was a biggie for me, right away!
                                And here's another biggie... Gel is strong. I have super weak nails, and now, they are all long and pretty. I had regular clear polish on for a few days (had loaned the LED to a friend to try out), and three broke at the end of that period because they weren't protected with my Gel. I put the gel back on when I could, and poof, they are all strong and not breaking!
