How Gelish LED Lamps Work
The recent advent of gel nail polish technology is actually quite dependent upon chemistry and technology. While the chemistry part is primarily related to the chemical interaction of the Gelish Foundation Gel, Gelish gel nail polish and Gelish Gel Nail Top It Off Sealer, the in-between steps in the application of each is dependent upon "curing" with UV nail lamps or LED lamps, like Gelish LED lamps.
LED Lamps work through an interaction between the photo-initiators in the LED lamp and the chemical makeup of gel nail polish that is receptive to that spectrum of photo-initiation. This, of course, begs the question: will LED lamps work with all gel nail polish. In short, the answer is no.
Different gel nail polish brands use different chemical makeups that affect the curing process. Gelish gel nail polish, for example, uses a chemical makeup that is best designed to work with Gelish LED lamps as opposed to general UV nail lamps. The reason is because LED lamps cure nails much faster than UV nail lamps, averaging 10-30 seconds for curing as opposed to 60-120 seconds for UV nail lamps.
