Nail art has become increasingly popular recently, with hundreds of thousands of people participating in the trend. The popularity has also increased demand for LED nail lamps and other equipment for applying polish and powders to fingernails. But why are these lamps so popular? And how do they work? Here is a comprehensive guide on everything you need to know about this wondrous technology.
A LED nail lamp works based on light.
A LED nail lamp works based on light. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are semiconductors that produce light when electricity passes through them. This technology has been around since 1959, and it’s only in recent years that they’ve become more efficient and widely available to consumers.
LEDs can be found in everything from lights to alarm clocks to TVs and computers. Still, they’re beneficial for nail lamps due to their high intensity compared with other bulbs used in similar products.
It uses light with a wavelength of around 400 nm.
This is also the wavelength that cures gel nails and UV nail lamps and effectively removes stains from acrylics.
400 nm light works well because this type of light penetrates deeply into the nail layers, which allows it to do its job better than other types of light.
An LED light then emits this.
LEDs are semiconductors made of a material that emits light when an electric current passes through the crystals. The wavelength of the light emitted by LEDs is 400 nm to 700 nm, visible to humans and therefore has a colour. In addition, LEDs have many other advantages compared to traditional lamps: they are energy-saving, last much longer and have a low heat emission.
These lights have a long lifespan.
As far as how long the lamps will last, it depends on how often you use them. If you do your nails everyday or every other day, they’ll last for about 20 years. If you use them once a month and only at that frequency, they’ll likely last even longer—possibly 25-30 years.
The main reason why LED nail lamps have such long lifespans is because of their low power consumption. Unlike traditional bulbs, which typically consume around 100 watts per hour of usage time, LED lights only consume about half that number (about 50 watts). This means that compared to other types of lighting options like incandescent and halogen bulbs, LEDs are much more efficient in energy consumption over time (due to lower wattage).
Cure under this UV light for about 30 seconds.
Once you’ve applied the base coat and cured it under the lamp, it’s time to apply your nail colour. The gel nails are cured for about 30 seconds to harden them. This keeps them from becoming brittle or chipping easily, so you can enjoy them for as long as possible!
LED lamps can cure your gel nails faster than any other type of lamp.
When compared to other types of lamps, LED lamps are more efficient. They use 10-20% less energy than traditional UV nail lights and can cure your gel nails faster with the same amount of light. The high-intensity lamp heads used in LED lamps have a longer lifespan than traditional UV nail lights and will outlive their competitors by a long shot – sometimes up to 15 years! A single dose lasts for over 1000 applications, making them more cost-effective in the long run.
Hopefully, this article has helped you understand how the technology behind LED nail lamps works. The main takeaway is that LED bulbs can cure your gel nails faster than any other type of lamp.
