UV and LED lamps are devices for polymerization (drying) coating. Ordinary varnishes dry in the air, while the polymerization of gel polishes, pastes and other polymers require ultraviolet rays. Drying lamps launch the polymerization process: due to photocathicists, which are part of persistent coatings, gel polishes (pastes, actress, Polygels etc.) dry and become solid. UV lamps (fluorescent) belong to the first generation of lamps for dried persistent coatings for manicure, and LED lamps (LED)-to the second. Both are very popular gadgets for manicure.

The modern assortment of lamps for drying nails mainly consists of UV and LED prints. They are powerful enough to create nail art of any complexity, but at the same time, gadgets still remain safe even for home use, if you take all precautions.

Most people who believe in this myth believe that when they come to the manicure master, they subject their hands and nails to powerful “irradiation” when they dry the coating in the UV- or LED apparatus. Moreover, the master says that it is better not to look at the radiated light, and many devices even have a special protective screen, which drops down during the procedure to protect the client’s eyes from “harmful” light.

The wavelength of ultraviolet rays is in the range from 350 to 400 nanometers, and in the second case – from 375 to 410 nanometers.
