QVC Today's Special Value (TSV): Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Kit with LED Lamp!

I've been looking at these kits for some time, wondering if they're actually as good as a salon gel manicure?! Has anybody used them? If so, what do you think?

I like the idea of quick 'curing' time, meaning I am not flapping my hands around and blowing my nails for hours (which lets face it, is tedious and looks weird), and actually think I'd be more likely to give some nail art a go because of this (I hate spending ages creating a masterpiece (ish) on my nails, only to then go and ruin it by knocking/smudging it etc)! On that note, does anybody know of any product that makes polish dry super quickly, that isn't Seche Vite, since I did not have a good experience with this stuff?!

Anyway, I noticed that today on QVC they have a Red Carpet Manicure set* as their TSV, which in this case means the set is this price (£74.97 plus £6.95 postage) and with the 3 easy payments (you pay £24.99 per month for 3 months, until the full amount is paid, postage and packaging cost is paid in first upfront payment) for one day only - until midnight tonight, actually.

If you've had your eye on one of these kits, this actually seems like a really good offer. I'm liking the look of both colour options too. Anybody going to go for it? x

  1. I have one of these with different colours, I've had since Christmas and I love it. I have since bought more colours (I buy Gelish from ebay from an American seller called beautyzone2007) to use with the system and it works great, also worth getting the gelish from America as it works out around £10 per bottle which is cheaper than the red carpet ones for a larger size. Would def recommend getting this, if you can paint your own nails you will be able to do this!

    1. This is fab to hear, thank you so much for your reply - very helpful indeed. I am not a total expert with painting my own nails, but I have heard that gel is easier, since it only 'dries' when you cure it, which means mistakes are easier to rectify. Would you say this is the case? x
