Uv light or led light
#1
Could some please explain the difference between the two, and can you use either or for you gels ? Is there different curing time for different gels ? Can you over cure?

For gels to cure under a LED lamp they must have been formulated to do so. If it is not LED cureable, then it must be cured in a UV lamp. Besides the chemical difference, the difference that you will like the most is the cure time on LED gels - far shorter than UV cured times. I did read somewhere that yes it's possible to over cure, but I really don't recall what the specifics were.. LED curable can be cured in a UV lamp but not the other way around. Always follow the manufacturers recommendations for cure times and while I know many do it, try to avoid mixing product lines so you get the best results.
