Here at Red Carpet Manicure, we want our customers to be completely satisfied with their Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish and so we’ve put together some gel application and removal tips which will help you get the best result from your gel manicure and ensure that it is long lasting.




Red Carpet Manicure Application And Removal Tips

A step by step will be provided within the Starter Kits, however there are a few extra points to bear in mind when applying your gel polish:

  • Wipe over your nails thoroughly with Purify to ensure you remove any natural polish or creams that may encourage lifting of the gel polish.
  • When applying base colour and top coat, make sure you leave a tiny gap between the nail and the cuticle, and between the nail and the side walls to prevent flooding, or the gel will lift.
  • Make sure to give your gel nails a good wipe at the end with Purify to remove the sticky residue – if the nails squeak when you wipe them, you will know all the residue has been removed.

Removing your gels in the correct way is extremely important as you want to ensure your nails aren’t damaged in the process. Here are some of our top tips for removal:


  • Make sure to break the seal gently by using the RCM Buffer Block to lightly buff the colour off the nail first.
  • Be sure to saturate the removal wrap with Erase and wrap around the nail for 10 – 15 minutes – don’t leave it any longer as the Erase will evaporate and the gel will dry again
  • Gently push off any remaining colour with the Orange Wood stick – if the colour has dried, repeat the Erase step again. DO NOT pull or buff it off as this will damage your nails.

Day To Day

  • Use Cute-icle’s Friend cuticle oil morning and night to keep your nails healthy
  • If your gel polish is starting to look dull, just do a quick wipe over with Purify and this will brighten them back up.
