Red Carpet Ready: At home Gel nail kit

Red Carpet Ready: At home Gel nail kit by What Laura did Next
It's the party season, and we all want to look our best - from our hair to our makeup, we want to get it right without having to spend a pretty penny on it all.

For me, getting my nails done is one of the little luxuries I sometimes treat myself to. But, it can get expensive. There's a few at home gel nail kits out in the shops now, and a little dubious about them, I decided to try one out.

The Red Carpet Ready Instant Gel Manicure kit has everything you need to get started. The kit contains a Pro LED light, buffing block, erase remover, Orangewood Sticks, removal wraps and a bottle of one step gel polish. Its easy to set up and use and is even small enough to store away.

The polish dries in around 35 seconds underneath the LED light, and has the same look and finish as your nails would have if you visited the salon. The only downside for me was that the polish chipped and peeled off very quickly - I am pretty heavy handed but, when I've had gel nail polish at a salon, it has lasted up to two weeks without chipping.

So, a handy kit to have at home but for me, it didn't last as long as a salon gel maicure. Maybe it's the way I'm doing it?

I was sent this by the team at Louella Belle, but my opinions are as real as my nails.
