Glitzy Prom Nails to Last Through the Night & Beyond!

Red Carpet Manicure Gems & Jewels
I've recently raved about my experience with Red Carpet's at-home gel manicure Pro Kit, but I wanted to actually show you how I combine long-lasting nail polish with the popular nail art trend in a picture tutorial. Inspired by the Red Carpet Manicure Gems & Jewels Kit, I thought I would put a simple, but elegant looking design perfect for prom. Given everything that comes in this kit, this basic design is just the tip of the iceberg, but I wanted to do something that illustrated the basic gel manicure steps while also showing that you can easily get a more intricate design with minimal time and effort. Bonus: everyone wants a fun night like prom to last as long as possible. Now you can take a little glitz from the night with you because this is guaranteed to last a week or more! Read on to see the tutorial...
