A few important parameters for choosing a LED UV nail lamp
1) UV lamp or LED lamp?
Why is the light so important? Because the nail polish used for nail art mainly has two materials: gel and acrylic resin, and the gel of which needs to be cured by UV light reaction, in the encounter with ultraviolet light will react, can become hard and accelerate the solidification, the current nail lamp on the market in addition to “UV lamp“, “LED lamp”, and “UV LED lamp”, considering that there may be some formulas of nail gel does not apply to the LED lamp, so in the recommendation of everyone Buy UV LED lamp.
Here science under the basics, ordinary UV lamp wavelength of 365 mm, belonging to the UVA and LED lights using a light-emitting diode, belonging to the visible light, the same as ordinary lighting light, no harm to human skin and eyes, about the two sources of light in the safety, quick-drying efficiency, comfort, energy-saving, convenience, etc. to do a comparison, see the following table.
Nail lamp power 5w, 8w this small machine, basically too thick glue is not dry, generally speaking, the greater the power, the faster the light glue dry, you can also refer to the number of beads, such as 48 beads than 32 beads of higher efficiency.
3) Illumination time
No matter what kind of light source you choose nail lamp, you have to control the lighting time if you want your hand not to be black, if you are doing nail art at home, according to the base glue, color glue, sealer, no wash sealer, corresponding to the UV light / LED light time is different.
- Base glue: UV 120 seconds, LED 60 seconds
- Color glue: UV60sec, LED30sec
- Sealer: UV120sec, LED60sec
- No-wash sealer: UV180sec, LED90 seconds
These parameters are the most critical in deciding a nail lamp, a good nail lamp in addition to meeting the above conditions, in the details of doing is also very careful of the user’s feelings, mainly in the following areas.
- The bottom plate can be removed: because many fairies also want to do a manicure to the foot, so the bottom can be removed nail lamp, easy to put the foot in
- Button: everyone is at home for their own use, the button is best at the bottom or in front, easy to control not
- Leakage: Some nail machines are leaky at the back, you may accidentally put the color glue behind the machine, so wasted.
But then again, the nail lamp for a long time will certainly lead to skin melanin surfacing, it is recommended not to do nails repeatedly within 15 days, it is best to wait for a skin cycle of 28 days before doing, if you really can not help it, then do a good job of protective measures!
- Apply sunscreen to your hands, preferably with a SPA+++ rating or higher
- Wear special gloves with UV protection, preferably UPF50+
- Reduce the time of nail lamp use, turn off when nail polish is solidified
If you look at the above after these still will not choose, then in accordance with 48W, LED / UV dual light source, with removable chassis this standard to choose, of course, you can also refer to the brand products I recommend to you later.
