Red Carpet Manicure Brilliance Top Coat
In the Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Pro Kit was Red Carpet Reddy, a red creme. I wanted another colour from RCM that is a staple colour I knew I'd get a lot of use out of, a mint green.
This one wasn't as easy to apply as Red Carpet Reddy, it wasn't as opaque and quite watery. I really should have done three very thin layers to build up the colour but instead tried to do two thicker coats. I only wore Parisian Chic for a week as I wanted to change to the red for Christmas but my manicure was still in perfect condition when I took it off.
I'm so glad I bought the RMC set as it's been great to not have to worry about my nails chipping and having to paint them every other night. It's expensive but if you can find it on offer like I did then I'd really recommend it. Next up is trying to sandwich an ordinary polish between the gel layers and see how long it lasts.
