1. Gel Manicure

Let us count the ways this manicure advancement has simplified life: long-lasting color (10 days to two weeks), instantly dry tips, and loads of shine. Doing an at-home gel manicure is just like doing a regular one—except you’re curing the color onto your nails with an LED light. That LED is an investment. You’ll need to buy a gel-mani starter kit, like the Red Carpet Manicure Starter Kit.

At $75 on redcarpetmanicure.com, but stay with us here: It’s a onetime purchase, after which you can simply replenish the polishes.

Step 1: Prep your nails: Remove old polish, file tips, push back cuticles, and trim hanging skin with a nipper.

Step 2: On each nail, paint on a layer of the gel base coat that comes with the kit.

Step 3: Place four fingers of one hand (index to pinkie) under the lamp for about two minutes (times vary by lamp); repeat with the thumb for the same amount of time.

Step 4: Repeat with two layers of the gel color and one of the clear gel topcoat that comes with the kit, curing nails for the time instructed between each coat of polish.

One of the Red Carpet Questions
Q: Can I fill my Red Carpet Manicure application once it starts to grow out?

A: Yes, you can fill your manicure. All you need to do is take a buffer and remove the shine of the nails. Using the Purify and a lint free wipe cleanse every nail to remove filings and debris. Then repeat all of the steps of a regular application. Remember to cover the entire nail not just the re-growth.
