Nail Dryers & UV/LED Lamps
Using a nail dryer and UV or LED lamps can help to speed up the drying process and prevent your newly decorated nails from becoming damaged, smeared or smudged. Nail dryers can be an excellent way to avoid accidents when waiting for your nails to dry and can help to speed up your beauty routine. If you are using gel nail products, UV or Led lamp are required to cure the gel.
Here on eBay you can find a wide range of nail dryers, UV and LED lamps from leading brands such as Mylee and CND in new, used and refurbished condition.
UV lamps use ultraviolet light to cure gel nail polish. They are suitable for most types of gel polish and certain lamps have a timer feature so you can ensure your nails dry correctly. Generally, UV lamps are more affordable than the LED counterparts, however, they do use much more energy and the bulbs will need to replaced more frequently.
LED lamps cure gel polish faster than UV lamps, however, LED lamps only cure LED specific gel polish brands such as shellac and OPI. They also use less power than standard UV lamps but tend to be slightly more expensive. Certain lamps have a motion sensor meaning the timer and lamp will only work once you place your fingers or toes under the lamp.
When designing nail art, you may consider warm or cool air fans to help to dry your nails quickly and safely. Air fans are usually much cheaper than nail lamps, but they can't be used to cure gel nail polish.
Depending on which brand of nail polish you prefer such as CND, Blue Sky or MelodySusie, you can find the manufacturer's specified nail lamp which can ensure the perfect curing and nail finish.
