CND Shellac with LED lamp
#1
Hi, has anyone tried Shellac with an LED lamp other than the new CND LED lamp? Prior to the new CND LED lamp, Shellac was only able to be cured under the CND UV lamp.

Now that CND launched "their" LED lamp, Shellac can be cured under "their" LED lamp.

Please let me know if you tried Shellac with another brand LED lamp. What was the results?

Thanks,

Marisol

Two of my co workers use the gelish 18g to cure Shellac all the time. I don't know if it is hit or miss with them ,but ,I certainly don't trust it...

Supposedly cnd didnt change the shellac formula to work with an led lamp but rather created an led lamp that would work with shellac so technically cnd shellac will still only cure on their lamp. It's hard to really tell if it's cured properly with other lamps because gel polish hardens with being as little as 50% cured so although by looking at it, it seems perfect, it could still be very well not cured and could be exposing your clients to ingrdients that could create an allergy towards gel polishes. It's definitely something to think about!

On the Shellac? Is that the led lamp that has the 45 sec cure time? Thanks.

LED gel polishes that are formulated for 36w LED lamp will not fully cure in the new cnd lamp. It is explained very clearly in previous posts. I would suggest to protect your work and professionalism to understanding the technology you are using and not to just adopt other people bad habits. We should not be passing on incorrect information . Thank you to those who offered up proper research

Thank you for the information. I forgot I posted this about 2 years ago. I was curious about the use of CND with other lamps. As I do not use one gel line exclusively. I like to try different products to see what works best for me. Not all gel lines offer all the colors I like or the consistency I prefer. There needs to be a universal lamp. It is not very cost effective to buy a lamp for every gel line.
