Nail polish is a fancy thing every woman longs to wear. It adds color to the otherwise dull nails. Wearing a different color everyday brightens up the outlook. Matching them with the dress is awesome. But there’s a problem that we have to deal with. Our hands are the most used parts of the body. Especially for a woman who has to spend time in the kitchen. Nails colors chip and wear off after a few days. Hardened nail polish has solved that problem.  Nail polish should dry pretty fast. No one wants to spend time phoo-phooing their nails in a bid to get the colors to dry faster. Nor does sitting in front of a table fan helps. Imagine sitting in front of a fan with your hands in the air when dressing up for a party. Just before walking out or dressing is the best time to wear the polish as that way there will be no chips and they will still be shiny but we can’t be sitting when we need to get dressed. Even in spas and salons, the customers want to get things done quickly.

For the working professionals this is still a problem. We want to be dressed immaculately but we want solutions that reduce our time in front of the dressing table. Some women want to do things themselves at home.

Using gel nails require some other methods of drying since they won’t dry themselves. Someone very enthusiastic may even own about 100 bottles or so of polish. That implies she uses a color that goes with her attire and changes it when needed. If these colors are gel based, then they need to be cured. A LED or UV lamp is the best solution for all of the above problems.

Buying a nail polish UV lamp is no more a task. Just go online and you will come across many stores selling them.

Gel nails never dry in the air.
