Preview tomorrow’s Red Carpet Nails TSV


Red Carpet Nails TSVThere's a new trend that's hitting the nail bars by storm – gel nails! It's a new type of manicure which lasts longer and gives your nails added shine.

But what's special about tomorrow's TSV is that we're bringing you this professional salon technology into your own home!

 How does it work?
Just like a traditional nail polish, you paint Red Carpet Manicure onto your nails with a brush, and then just like a gel, each layer is ‘cured’ to dry under an LED lamp, in as little as 30 seconds. The result is a high shine, long-lasting finish that is instantly dry, so once you’ve applied your polish, you can get on with your day.

What’s the difference between this and a standard polish?

Put simply, it's time. By using the LED light, it takes less than no time to dry your nails so no having to wait around patiently while they dry and then accidentally smudging them because they aren't completely dry yet – we've all done it!

Applying Red Carpet Manicure polishSecondly your manicure will last longer than a standard polish so no touching up or re-applying before the week is done!

Tell us more about tomorrow's TSV…

The great thing about tomorrow's TSV is that you don't have to pop into a salon and pay to get your gel manicure done every time. This kit gives you the products and tools to treat yourself to a professional-looking manicure or pedicure from your sofa!

Why does the Red Carpet Manicure system use an LED light?

The LED light is the newest technology available. It cures each stage of your Red Carpet Manicure quickly and as it is a ‘cool’ light, there's very minimal heat output. An LED light will also last far longer than a UV light, with no need to change the bulbs. 

Can I use Red Carpet Manicure if I have acrylic nails?

Yes, you can! However, we would advise that you first buff the surface of the artificial nail to remove any shine. This will aid adhesion of the products to ensure long-lasting results.

How should I care for my nails if I’m using Red Carpet Manicure?

Using Red Carpet Manicure technologyThere is virtually no maintenance required to enjoy the beautiful, high gloss finish that Red Carpet Manicure offers. We do however recommend that you apply the Cuticle Oil (included in this kit) on a daily basis. This will help keep your nails strong and healthy – and it's a great thing to do even when you're not wearing Red Carpet Manicure.

Is Red Carpet Manicure easy to remove?

Yes, each kit comes with complete step-by-step instructions on how to remove the polish, and includes a bottle of Erase Gel Nail Polish Remover.

You run a buffer over the nail polish surface to break the seal on the top coat, soak a cotton pad in the Remover, place it on the nail and wrap the finger tip in foil to speed removal time. After 10-15 minutes, remove the foil and gently push off any remaining colour with an orange stick. Finish by massaging Revitalise Nourishing Cuticle Oil into each cuticle and nail.

    I have been using RCM for a couple of months now & it is excellent but use an LED lamp that i already own & it does take a bit longer to cure,It does have amazing staying power but can be easily removed when you want to change it.
    Will be interesting to see how QVC pricing will compare against RCM’s own website.

    I think you’ll find gel nails have been around for a while, I used to have them done in the 90’s. Coloured gel polish IS new tho

    This system is brilliant!
    I’ve always had trouble getting a standard manicure to last longer than 2 days, with this I get over 10 days and the only reason I change then is because I want to try new colours!
    I’m trilled that it is coming to QVC although a bit gutted that I’ve already got the kit but hopefully they will also have polish kits too!
    Can’t wait for midnight!

    I recently purchased this kit directly from RCM. I am in LOVE! It is easy, quick and no worries about chips, smudges or flaking. Excellent range of colours and so versatile. As a busy mum and wife, this system is perfect to treat myself in the evening without worrying about trying to get to a salon. I had 2 weeks out of my first attempt and only changed it as I received a new colour. Im sure it would have lasted a lot longer. People comment on how nice they look!

    I’ve been having OPI gel manicures for a few months now. It is truly amazing and I am always pleased to see that my natural nails still look good when gel is removed. I’ve been paying 20 pounds for removal and re-coat which I think is quite a reasonable amount compared to what some salons charge. I am going to seriously consider the kit as it will be much more convenient to be able to do it myself.
