The person for whom I purchased this item for really loves it especially when she is doing the gel nails. She sets the timer and the timer is activated by the customers fingers, Thus all the customer has to do is move their fingers and the timer resets..Since it is her own light she does not have to search for a "curing light" when she needs one. Also there is no light bulb to replace.
love this machine. I cannot say enough about it! it does the job EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I don't really see the need to set it for 45 seconds because l use it on 30 all the time and it dries them perfectly. I will say that the metal prongs you pull out to raise it up so ur feet can fit under it-- came off the first day. they won't stay on. so I have to prop it up on books now for my toes.
This thing payed for itself after 3 gel manicures. Can't go wrong with DIY rather than paying salon prices. What used to cost me $35 plus tip in the salon now costs me NOTHING!! Great investment if you love getting manicures but have crippling student loans, etc. like myself.
