Hi beautiful! I recently attended the QVC 2013 beauty bash and although I was too much in a rush to take pictures to share with you all, I did discover a new fascination/obsession/lust/can’t-live’without product that I am in absolute love with. I’ve never had my nails done at a salon, I’ve had it done at events but the world of acrylic/gel nails was on I hadn’t tapped in to and to be honest I was rather afraid to venture in to. I just thought they would be harmful to my strong healthy nails and I was more than competent enough to paint my own nails perfectly fine. Well today’s product completely solves that problem for me and let’s me discover gorgeous long lasting shiny nails from home.
I introduce you to my gorgeous red nails and the Red Carpet Manicure brand. Red Carpet Manicure, it is basically a at home gel manicure set and makes the process of getting gel nails of extremely good quality really easy.
The Red Carpet Manicure works really simply, literally 2 base coats, colour and top coat and after letting the UV light cure after each coat in 45 seconds you are left with dry, shiny nails that don’t chip and last for weeks. I promise you it really does last as I myself was rather sceptical especially being a newcomer. I had these red nails done on the 23rd of January. I have took these pictures late evening on the 6th of February they were looking pretty impressive. I can’t wait to paint my toes with this gel system, I hate repainting them after they chip and this looks like it will solve my problems for a long while.
I was lucky enough to have my nails painted by the beautiful Katy Rose, however I was able to paint my thumbnail myself just to get an idea how easy it is to apply. And I can report back and let you all know it is super super easy, just the same as painting normal nails. Really makes the idea of spending £30+ on getting it done in salons rather ridiculous. The nails last for absolute ages, the glossiness and shine last forever and as long as you let the UV cure the polish properly it remains chip free!
(You can see I didn’t let my little pinkie finger cure properly under the light – my fault!)
Now where can you get hold of this kit and polishes I hear you ask. Well, a really easy place actually that has lots of reviews on it so you can see what other people are saying about the brand and their thoughts on the home system. QVC! I love QVC as you guys are probably realising especially because I can read lots of reviews, and of course return if I don’t like what I receive Red Carpet Manicure have some amazing 5 star reviews on QVC already and currently they have this amazing set (amazing value) for sale :

You also receive a choice of 3 polishes, a French manicure set or a pretty purple pink set, I personally would go for the French manicure set because I hate how quickly I manage to ruin French manicures especially as they take much more effort than painting normal nails. The price also is so appealing because if you paid that much at a salon you’ll probably only get gel nails applied 3 times whereas here you can get it applied over and over and over again. You get the idea.
I hope you enjoyed this post, it’s quite nice how the blogging world has helped me discover new brands and I hope I’m helping you to as well. I definitely will be purchasing this little kit because I love all things pampering and I think this will be amazing for when girls come over to my house, we can have a little salon up and running from my bedroom! I’ve got every thing else covered, just needed nails and I’ve got that option too now. I will definitely be doing a post on Seche Vite for you too, I’ve had a few requests on that already from you all and I’ll try find more information on that.
