Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

Megan said, on Sep 8th, 2012 1:12 am regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

Shelly said, on Aug 19th, 2012 3:43 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Jill said, on Aug 8th, 2012 5:47 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Steph said, on Jul 3rd, 2012 4:14 pm regarding Wet n Wild Flash Dry Nail Colors
Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

prinzy said, on Jul 3rd, 2012 3:47 pm regarding Wet n Wild Flash Dry Nail Colors
I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

thanks :)

Steph said, on Jun 13th, 2012 2:04 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on amazon.com.

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

Debra said, on May 26th, 2012 4:59 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
