Not worth the money, too low power, not long lived
on October 18, 2011
I purchased this lamp to do gel nails at home and save money but it's been nothing but an aggrevation. The second time I used it the bulb flickered and died. I figured I had a dud so I returned it. I brought the new one home, slipped in brand new batteries and finished one hand successfully. Then I jinxed myself, I turned it off for a bit. When I returned to do my other hand it didn't work. After flicking the switch a couple times it began trying to work again. I figured out that the switch was bad in addition to the bulb. To get it to come on and stay on I had to apply and hold pressure on the switch then the light would half come on. A black band appeared on the light and it was alot dimmer. It never again put out enough light to work properly. I paid $25 for this light, for $50 I am going to get an LED UV light and save myself the aggrevasion of this little light. Oh by the way if you are stuck with one hand done and have a black light in the house it will work just fine in curing the nails.
