Advantages dries nails more quickly
Disadvantages isnt that much quicker if you want them well dried and hard
|Value for Money|
I rarely wear anything other than clear nail varnish on my finger nails and I will admit to disliking the relaxation in the uniform policy of many hospitals which allows nurses to wear coloured nail varnish; personally I like to look at the cleanliness of peoples hands and in particular their nails
As I don’t paint my fingernails often I make extra effort in keeping their appearance as neat and tidy in other ways. I only wear nail polish on my finger nails when im going out somewhere special, but on the other had I always paint my toe nails and at the moment they are blue.
Giani UV Nail Light
This Giani ultra-violet nail light and dryer does look fairly stylish; it has a very smooth design with no angles anywhere. Its rounded case is silver plastic and its trim and button is lilac. Its very light weight and portable- it runs on 4 AA batteries so can be used any where. It isn't that robust and could become scruffy easily if treated roughly
I have found that using this does shorten the drying time considerably but more importantly in my opinion leaves the nail varnish harder than it would be if left to dry naturally. I find this very useful as, like a lot of infrequent nail varnish users, I chip my fingernails very easily. It’s also useful for the toes as they have a rougher time all round. I suppose it cuts the touch dry time by at least half and the solid dry depends on how long you leave them under.Many different companies make these UV dryers and there probably isn’t much to choose between them. A cheap one is fine for me with my infrequent use but regular nail polish users may want something more sophisticated like the one my sister has which has various settings and is large enough to get both hands into.
It comes with an instruction leaflet which is quite basic but there isn’t a lot to tell you other than how to turn it on and replace the batteries. It does give you some hints about nail varnish application and promoting healthy nails but this is short and not particularly useful but the unit was only £13 new and cost nothing for me so I don’t have a lot of moans.There is a 2 year warranty but this unit has worked for over that now and if it does stop working it’s hardly expensive to replace as these type of dryers are now pretty common.
