This is an LED nail lamp that can be used with any LED-curable gel polish. I tested this for about a week and was able to cure all of polishes that I tried with no problems. I know a week doesn’t seem like a long time to most of you, but I did about 20 gel polish swatches in that short period of time! I didn’t ever feel any heat spikes while using this lamp. Some lamps cure very quickly and you can actually feel the heat on your nails – this usually happens with clear coats and/or when the polish is applied too thick. I also tested it with dark colors and had no issues.
The three colors that I used in the video demo are:
The lamp has 4 timer buttons that are easily accessible on top, and can be set for 30, 60, or 90 seconds, or for 30 minutes. The curing time depends on the brand of polish that you use. Always check the bottle or manufacturer website for the recommended curing time for the specific polish that you are using.
The lamp does not have a sensor that detects your hand when you it goes in the lamp, so you just press a timer button to turn it on and then it will automatically turn off after the time is up. It’s large enough to fit all five fingers at once. I personally think it’s just slightly too big for my own travel use, but it’s very light-weight and is portable so you could travel with it if you desire. On the inside of the lamp, there are lights on the top and the sides are reflective.
I found the cord to be a little on the short side and had to use an extension cord, but that’s not a deal breaker for me. I don’t have an outlet near my nail station so I normally use extension cords anyway. I believe the power adapter can be used in Europe with the proper converter.
And finally, the price point is great at just $46! It’s very reasonably priced compared to many of the pro brands, and it works very well. I recommend the MelodySusie LED lamp for anyone that is doing, or wants to do gel manicures at home.
