What nail polish can you use with UV lamp?

It is well known that UV or LED nail lamps can be used to catalyze nails. However, not all nail polishes are suitable. So which nail polishes are they suitable for? Today, the nail supply expert Maryton will give you answers. Just keep reading!

UV nail lamps cure all gel polish brands, but LED nail lamps only cure specific LED gel polish brands. Therefore, with any purchase of a UV manicure lamp you can’t go wrong, because it works with all gel polishes. And they are also less expensive.

As a matter of fact, gel nail polish is hardened by ultraviolet wavelengths activating photoinitiators in the gel. Because UV lamps work by emitting wider UV wavelengths, the gel polish takes longer to cure.

In comparison, LED nail lamps use a narrow UV wavelength. Specific photoinitiators in the gel polish are activated faster to make the gel cure, so you need to purchase compatible LED gel polish. As long as the polish is labeled to work in both LED and UV lamps, the user should be fine.

Hoping that this article has pleased you and will give you ideas! In addition, I also advise you to invest in some professional manicure kits to care for your nails!
