There nail art it is more and more fashionable lately.
I threw myself at headfirst in this world last year and I immediately discovered the existence of nail ovens also called LED or UV lamps.
Is one easy to use tool and in the following video you can find some useful tips and the principle of operation, great if you are a beginner and you are asking the usual ritual questions.
As often happens, I immediately became passionate about the subject and decided to inform myself as much as possible to write an article.
Obviously I will also reveal to you what my favorite oven is.
These tools were initially reserved for nail care and beauty professionals, while in recent years they have become more and more common use, quietly employed in home environment as simple and immediate to use.
Today the passion for nail art is practically diffused to oil stain and even my most suspicious friends seem to have finally « surrendered » to this fashion and begin to opt for home-made do-it-yourself with my great joy since I finally have loyal allies in my ongoing experiments 🙂

But no more talk and let’s start with the guide! Click here to scroll directly to REVIEWS OF THE BEST LAMPS.
What is the nailer for?
It’s a small oven you use ultra violet or LED rays depending on the technology used.
The bulbs inside allow thedrying in seconds of semi-permanent gels or enamels designed specifically for nail art.
So watch out! Not good for normal glazes.
It hurts? Is it carcinogenic?
Many wonder if the led nail lamp actually hurts.
Since the use of UV burners has spread on a global scale, some doubts have begun to arise as to whether these were safe for the health of those undergoing treatment.
There is one study of a very important American medical university that has put the question of whether or not these tanning lamps actually emit harmful radiation on the skin.
The conclusion reached is that ovens with a very high voltage are potentially more risky for health than low voltage ones.
Other studies have found instead the completely harmless nail ovens as their very low UV emission is comparable to that used in the dental field for teeth whitening.
According to these scholars, there should therefore be no danger of using these devices.
It is always advisable to equip yourself with common sense and conscientiously use the nail ovens always opting for the highest quality products.
It is essential to always buy products certified by the European Union and instead avoid the Chinese market which, as far as the potentially more advantageous appearance is concerned, often reserves pitfalls.
Especially when we find ourselves dealing with objects that we will use directly on our body, we cannot in any way exempt ourselves from thinking about possible negative effects resulting from the use of instruments not properly tested on human skin.
So I invite you as always to pay a lot of attention.
LED or UV lamp?
First of all it needs to be clarified which are the substantial differences between the LEV and UV lamps.
The semi-permanent LED enamel lamps exploit the polymerization by means of LED bulbs, which are semiconductor luminous devices.
First of all, because of the use of this technology, they are faster than UV.
THE LED they have very low consumption and allow a much longer duration, they also emit a type of cold light, which is an advantage not just.
Cold light is in fact much safer for the health of one’s hands than hot, because it avoids any burns.
Semi-permanent UV enamel lamps emit ultraviolet radiation instead.
The UV they consume much more electricity and unlike LEDs they emit a kind of warm light on the skin, and can reach temperatures that are potentially harmful to the skin of our hands.
Moreover, UV technology is a little more dated and devices made in this way tend to be more fragile than constitution.
The substantial advantage over LED technology is the fact that they are universal, can be used with any type of product.
The traditional UV lamp bulbs must be replaced after a certain number of uses.
It is easy to understand when it is time to replace the bulbs of the UV lamps, it is sufficient to verify if on these are present or not some blackened areas, if so they will have to be changed as soon as possible.

- 【Automatic Sensor】 This nail lamp can be started automatically by infrared induction if you put your hand into the machine without pressing the time adjustment button. The maximum working time is 120 seconds and the fastest drying time is 5 seconds.
There are products towards which a relationship of affection is established, almost love at first sight, and for me this is undoubtedly the case of the Abody Auto-sensing, a nail lamp that has given me great satisfaction and excellent results worthy of a beauty center.
It is indeed a really interesting oven, we find ourselves in front of a resistant object destined to last over time.
You can set the timer to 15, 30 or 60 seconds, and you can set the function for which the device turns on when we go to rest your hand inside, a really nice and innovative choice.
The design is almost futuristic, so it won’t look bad in the most modern rooms, it has the ability to effectively dry all the fingers of the hand without the need for further review.
You can select the intensity by choosing 48W or 24W by long pressing the on and off button.
The power is interesting and the operation is LED, and as we all know LEDs naturally tend to last longer than UV bulbs.
It is very large and also allows you to make excellent pedicures without any effort.
The power supply is very powerful.
Dry nail art enamels very quickly without any problem or hesitation.

Another very interesting lamp that undoubtedly deserves to finish inside this guide is the 48 Watt USpicy, UV and LED.
The lamp in question is made with extremely light materials and even the dimensions are reduced, perfect for those who therefore intend to move it often from one place to another, perhaps during a vacation why not.
Equipped with a timer with 3 options, depending on your needs for curing the nail polish or gel.
The design is extremely attractive, in fact the shapes are seductive, it is a product designed for pleasure and not to go unnoticed on the table of make-up or manicure.
It is very round, all glossy and black, it immediately catches the attention and makes us understand its intentions without however being intrusive.

Very easy to clean since the lower part disengages from the upper part whenever we wish, in order to always guarantee maximum hygiene, and every new use will be like the first time.
One of the peculiarities of this lamp that immediately catch the eye and make it clear that we are dealing with a top class instrument is the presence of many LED lamps in the upper part of the oven.
On the walls of this there are then mounted mirrors that allow the light to be reflected and therefore to reach the entire surface of the nail in a uniform manner, thus ensuring a result almost equal to the professional one.
The value for money, even in this case, is very interesting, in fact there are not many products, not only in the field of manicure, but in general among the instruments dedicated to female beauty, which guarantee such quality at such a negligible cost.
The weight is very low, this may be synonymous with poor quality for some, because semi-professional appliances are expected to be heavy, as if to witness their bulk and importance with bulk, but we know by now in this historical period in which everything is thinning out and in which nano-technologies triumph that maximum performance does not always correspond to maximum bulk, indeed. It is often the opposite.

8. Halicer, great for travel
This Halicer has a very nice design, in fact it uses red LED lights designed specifically to not damage the skin and even less our sight, revealing itself very pleasant to use.
I allow to dry both the nail gel and the semi-permanent nail polish leaving us the possibility to choose the times that we believe best between the preset timer settings at 30, 60 or 90 seconds.
The lamp will turn on automatically as if by magic when we insert our hand inside, and obviously it will turn off when we remove it.
The base of the oven can be cleaned very easily since it comes off in a flash because it is magnetized, so it will be child’s play to bring the lamp back to its initial state.
Online users tend to be very satisfied with this product.
It is certainly an excellent product for those who are impatient and do not like to wait with their hands suspended in the air for the enamel to dry, with the risk of it being ruined.
This is why lamps come in handy.
In the Halicer the lights have been installed in a very intelligent way so as to guarantee an almost professional result, there will be no need to go to our trusted nail artist for a quick intervention, we could do it directly at home and avoid continuous visits to the centers aesthetic to have our nails in order day after day.
I will always be grateful for life for marketing such small ovens at such an affordable price.
The lights are also arranged not to be touched with the fingers, since they are positioned very high compared to where the hand will be placed.
Obviously it is an excellent device also for pedicure, being very capacious, even for those who do not have a Cinderella foot …
Despite being large, this oven remains small and very practical to move, so it is a great travel companion to pack for a manicure even on vacation!
It is certain that in recent years the importance of the work of the beautician has increasingly focused on nails to the point of creating the figure of the nail artist.
A couple of decades the nails were cured and painted, of course, but not with the attention that lends itself now. A small but fundamental detail for seduction has become over time a real aesthetic weapon to stand out and proclaim its personality to the world.
The great nail art artists know how to make real masterpieces on nails, making them original and even artistic.
Nail art was born in Asia, during the Bronze Age with the practice of henna, a dye derived from the dust of some leaves.
In the rich Babylon, black nails were stained to distinguish one’s social position.
But it was in Egypt that the decoration of the nails began to be exalted, in fact in this society the color distinguished the social classes, plus the red used was in fact more intense meant that the woman in question belonged to a high rank, up to that real.
In the Middle Ages, on the other hand, for religious reasons, this practice gradually diminished.
In the Renaissance, on the other hand, he returned to vogue given the return to aesthetics and vivid colors.
In the twentieth century there was then the popular explosion in the whole way of the manicure with more and more original solutions and more and more innovative colors, up to the day today, with the introduction also of the false nails and those reconstructed.
Nowadays we see instead the presence of gels, semi-permanent glazes and the famous and adorable nail piercings, which I personally love to madness.
I hope the guide on the best nailer has been helpful to help you untangle yourself in this complicated jungle that sees day after day the introduction of always different devices, so it’s not at all easy to understand what can really do to the case own.
I wish you a good day, my friends and I greet you, referring you to the next article!
from your Antonella.
