Review: Red Carpet Manicure Gel Nail Varnishes in Garnet, An Evening to Remember, Put a Slipper On It and A Matter of Prince-iple

RCMmarch1

On my recent visit to Sally’s I got four gel nail varnishes from Red Carpet Manicure. I’ve recently started to grow my gel varnishes collection as I’ve been using it more so I went for some that I didn’t think I had anything like or like ones I had in a normal nail varnish but wanted a gel version. Later in the post I have done a dupe for each of the three I have similar colours to but the one is definitely unique in my nail varnish collection.

Two of the gel varnishes are in the permanent range, as far as I know, being An Evening to Remember (516) and Garnet (276) from the more sparkly collection based on precious stones and these cost around £10 – £12 I think. The two from the Cinderella collection seem to be sold out pretty much everywhere but they were in the reductions area. They did have stickers saying they were £7.87 but when we got to the till it was ££2.86 so I doubt there are any left but if there are in one near you then they’re worth getting. The two I chose were A Matter of Prince-iple (293) and Put a Slipper On It (289) though I do wish I’d bought a few more.

I can’t link to any of them because I can’t seem to get the Sally’s website to work for me, maybe it’s my browser but it keeps saying there’s an error, this is the link for the website in general though so you can go and see what they have online if you search Red Carpet Manicure. Both Asos and Marks and Spencer also sell RCM things though so they might be a good place to look and compare prices for individual colours.

Review: Elegant Touch Lux Gel varnishes and a Red Carpet Manicure Cinderella gel varnish

I recently bought a couple of the Elegant Touch Lux Gel gel nail varnishes, one in ‘hero’ and another in ‘sweet dreams’, both are fairly neutral colours but on the pink side of neutral so they’re suitable for interviews and times when I don’t want such bright nails. I posted about these in my recent Asos post but now I’ve tried them I thought I’d do a review. I also got one of the Red Carpet Manicure Cinderella nail varnishes in ‘put a slipper on it’ which I love so there will be a small review at the end for that one too.

I chose these colours as I like to have a couple of neutral colours to wear, especially when they’re long lasting like gels, as if I plan on wearing a lot of different colours over the time the nail varnish is on I like something that goes with them all and this is an easy way of doing that.

I wasn’t planning on making an order and I managed to keep it small but something I wanted to get mum for Mother’s Day is sold out everywhere else and so I thought it was a good chance to try this other company. I haven’t seen these Elegant Touch gel varnishes anywhere before, even on Asos, where I made this order, until a week or so ago when I searched on there so I don’t know if they’re new or if they’re just new on there. I will do a proper review when I’ve tried them but this is a sort of first impressions just looking at them.
