Does anyone know if UV Nail drying lamps can be used to dry normal nail polish, or if it is just for Shellac polish? Any recomendations for a decent low price lamp please?

dont know about the lamps but saw on tv last week a woman fill a sink up with very cold water and put her fingers in for a minute and out came dry smudge free nails.. she used normal nail polish..
Nail Drying Lamps are just another gimmick,when my wife paints my nails i wiggle them around for 40 secounds and thay dry,uv lamps on fleabay cheap and will do the job,but realy blow and wiggle thats what i do.

Bowl of water with a couple of ice cubes does the trick.

I use the cold setting on my hair dryer for my toes.

Is shellac easy to put on?

Yes, it is ok to put on. I just wondered if I invested in a lamp it would do for both Shellac (for which you need a uv lamp) and normal polish. Would save a fortune getting it done at the salon. The cold water and cold setting on hairdryer won't work for shellac

Thanks for your reply, I just took my acrylics off today after wearing them for years and I wanted to try Shellac. Have you heard of or tried Blue Sky shellac? they have it really cheap on Ebay.

As far as UV light goes I think you could use it on normal polish because at the salon I went to for my nails everyone whether they had acrylics or their natural nails dried them on the UV light.

Ok, thanks. I think I will invest in a lamp. I don't know anything about Blue Sky(or any of the other makes on ebay, but would be really interested to know if anyone else has tried it.
