RCM Launches Six Limited Edition LED Gel Polish Shades For Summer


Red Carpet Manicure, the trusted nail care brand, announced today the launch of “Sweet Indulgence,” a six shade limited edition collection of LED nail gel polishes for summer. The line is available now at redcarpetmanicure.com and will roll out in June at ULTA Beauty Stores and Ulta.com.

The pastel palette draws inspiration directly from top designer fashion week shows. The soft shades offer consumers the chance to let their nails spring to life with a range of warm hues like peach and lavender to trace elements of pink and sea foam tones.

The “Sweet Indulgence” collection includes the following polishes:

– “Ravishing Raspberry” – Rich Pink Crème

– “Peach Chiffon” – Peach Crème

– “Pineapple Premiere” – Sunny Yellow Crème

– “Kiwi-Lime Affair” – Lime Crème

– “Sorbet Soiree” – Rich Turquoise Blue Crème

– “Wild Berry Diva” – Pink/Purple Crème

“After coming off of a successful red carpet award season where celebrities chose Red Carpet Manicure shades of ‘Only in Hollywood’ and ‘Dripping in Luxury,’ it’s time to transition into summer with new on-trend colors,” says Barry Shields, Managing Partner of Red Carpet Manicure. “Our brand embraces change and after a very long winter, we know that consumers are definitely ready to lighten up.”

As a way of creating an eye-catching look, Celebrity Manicurist Christina Aviles has already tested out the “Sweet Indulgence” collection and recommends color blocking. To achieve this on-trend design, she suggests using bold shades like “Ravishing Raspberry,” “Kiwi-Lime Affair,” and “Sorbet Soiree.” Consumers can also apply shades like “Pineapple Premiere,” “Peach Chiffon,” and “Wild Berry Diva” to create a marbleized design.
