1. Follow Shellac's instruction on how to prep nails and use products-go to their website. I shape my nails and cuticles, then use scrub fresh to clean and dehydrate.
2. SHAKE the UV base coat for two minutes and paint both hands! I didn't shake well the the first time and the base coat and nail color came out too thick.
3. I put nails under light to cure for 30 seconds. Nails will feel tacky (not dry) and this is normal. Has to do with oxygenation with curing.
4. Shake color -paint one coat of color on both hands and put under light for two minutes-nails will feel tacky. This is normal.
5. Shake color-paint second coat of color on both hands and put under light for two minutes-nails will feel tacky. This is normal.
6. Shake top coat-paint top coat on nails-place under dryer for two minutes. Use 99% alcohol to remove tacky layer on top coat. I used 70% alcohol pads and this worked fine! A tiny bit of nail color streak came off on alcohol pad but I continued on removing tacky layer. When I was finished, nails were perfectly cured. Polish has been on for 10 days and still look brand new. If nails lose their shine due to lotion...-wife off with alcohol pad and they look brand new.
7. When ready to take off-either soak off with 100%acetone on cotton balls with aluminum foil or soak fingers in acetone. I wouldn't bother with the CND pad removers.
Bottom line-this lamp works great for Shellac nails-no need to buy $200 plus one. You will read so many mixed reviews about why you shouldn't be doing it yourself and using anything but the CND dryer, but this is what worked for me.
The only think that I don't like about this machine is the size, it is larger than others, other than that,I like it.
7/28/16- Just a quick update about this Thermal Spa UV Lamp. I wanted to use it today to do my right thumb, as I had broken the nail just a little, wanted to mend it, I had put on the base coat, turned on the light, only two lights came on, so I decide to check to make sure the lights were secure,which they were, no luck, did not turn on, so I decided to take off the back, take out the lights (I back was a little hard to get off, of course I broke a nail by doing such) any way, took all the lights out,put them back in, to no avail, the lights did not work. I'm returning this and going with an LED instead, as I hear they cut down the curing time and less harmful.
UPDATE! 7 months later.
Axxium is too hard to take off so I've started using CND Shellac. FANTASTIC, but don't let them snow you that you need the "official" CND light. I use this bad boy and get two weeks of perfect wear out of my Shellac. Love this light. Also the OPI light is $200+ and you can only do 4 fingers at a time and thumb seperately. lame. LOVE THIS LIGHT
There have been many mishaps in the beginning, but I realize they had nothing to do with the lamp itself. In the beginning, learning to do gel on myself had a learning curve--ie if I put on the layers too thick, the gel will wrinkle under the light; if I don't wash my hands before putting on gel, then they don't adhere well because there is oil on the nails; I have to be pretty quick about putting on the polish because the polish will shrink away from the edges and cuticles if I take too long, etc etc.
But the lamp itself, no prob. The only thing I worry about is the UV light exposure. So I put on the fingerless gloves to protect my hands. I should put on sunblock too but I find it to be too messy and it's hard to not get it on my nails.
