HYBRID NAIL CURING LAMP – Which One To Choose? LED OR UV?
HYBRID NAIL CURING LAMP – Which One To Choose? LED OR UV?

Curing, the final stage of the nail design process, is actually the icing on the cake – the last element for the final effect. In case of insufficient power or type of light, we can significantly extend the time and even make it impossible to envision our designs for a unique nail. That’s why choosing the right hybrid nail curing lamp is a priority.

UV lamp – a classic solution that you should know more about

UV lamps, which are still the most popular devices of this type, cure gel and hybrid nail polishes, but not always with equal results. Theoretically, we can buy a 9W lamp for as little as PLN 29, but is it worth taking the risk? Exactly. After all, a manicure that ripples and comes off quickly is a nightmare that has put many customers off home experiments with hybrid nail polishes. A professional nail design performed in a salon is on a completely different level – to ensure that even heavily pigmented colours and all effects cure without any problems, we need to invest in a 36W device. Professional UV nail lamps offer a broad spectrum of light, so they cure both gel (also coloured ones!) and hybrid nail polishes. The only downside is that the curing process takes longer.

LED lamp – is it really revolutionary?

Since these type of lamps appeared on the market, they have immediately gained a huge group of supporters. Unfortunately, not every lamp is equally good, so as with a UV lamp we should first of all avoid devices with less power to make sure that our nail design is completely cured, and the effects last longer. A bridge shaped curing lamp does not disperse light evenly, hence it provides a poorer effect on the sides and ends of nails. Therefore, LED lamps should have a power rating of at least 36W, but preferably 48W. The biggest advantage of LED lamps is the reduction of working time by at least 50%. Many manufacturers boast that a professional hybrid nail curing lamp guarantees 100% curing in just a few seconds, but you need to know that this does not apply to all products. For gel nail polishes, the product must contain a large number of photo initiators in order to cure in an LED light.
