In nail school, I was taught how to apply gel polish and I wanted to share with you my review of this new product on the market. I got mine from Sally's Beauty Supply and it was around $60 which is an excellent price for a lamp since the professional ones can run up to $500. It comes in a little box as shown below.
The lamp itself has a compact design which makes it much easier to travel with than with other professional brands that I've used. It's also not as heavy. Artistic Color Design makes one with a fairly compact design but that one is a little heavy to me. This Finger Paints lamp feels flimsy at times when you're moving it around but it is much more lightweight. As long as you don't intend on moving it around like crazy at a salon, it is a good household lamp.
When the LED is turned on, it emits a warm feeling on your nails/hands but it doesn't produce this intense sensation like the Artistic Design one. The Artistic Design lamp has much stronger bulbs which can be very painful if your nail tech does not know how to apply gel properly but I haven't experienced any burning with this lamp. If there is any sensation at all, it is temporary and not a big deal.
