Hey geeks! I need a new 36w UV lamp and I'm thinking of purchasing the CND one for the 5 finger cure, I just wanted to know if there are any more 5 finger cure lamps out there for comparison as I'm struggling in my search! I don't use Shellac so don't necessarily need the CND lamp.

I have had several lamps but think my CND 5 finger cure is much superior...would not use anything else and I think it is reasonably priced for the quality....:hug:

Have to agree with that. I heart my CND lamp and it's superior quality is well worth the price!

Thanks for all your replies, I had a feeling the CND one would come out on top ;)

I don't do Shellac but I have 2 CND UV lamps.
They look good and are good quality, but the best bit is the 4 timer settings! I have 1 set for 10 seconds to flash cure, 1 at 60 seconds and one at 120 seconds for my Gelish, and the other at 180 seconds for the Gel topcoat I sometimes use on my L&P. I can change these settings to anything I want at any time!
Makes everything so much easier just clicking 1 button.
Also I can check on the life of my bulbs with the CND lamp and know the bulbs will be good for 100 hours.

Cheap UV lamps only ever have 2 settings 60 seconds and 120 seconds and they cannot be changed. You also have no way of knowing when to change your bulbs.

I have 3 lamps - Bio Sculpture lamp that I bought when I did my course, Nail Harmony LED lamp and CND 5 finger lamp.

Bio lamp when switched on is on all the time - a real waste of bulb life. NH Led lamp is a good lamp, but I tend to use it only for when I am gelishing my own nails as it saves me time. I had problems with it when doing toenails, for some reason my big toe (and one client I used it on)would not cure properly, must be the positioning of the foot but I couldn't work it out and didn't trust it anymore on clients so went back to using UV lamp.

Which brings us to the CND Lamp! I love it, I love the 4 timers they are really useful, it looks good, really no negatives at all. I also think its very good value. Actually I do have a negative - its a real pain to open when you first get it - took me ages!! When you realise you need to be a bit "tough" with it its fine!!

Hi Pipsqueak, Do you use your CND lamp to cure Bio Sculpture gel too? I have both ranges -Shellac and Bio gel and have 2 different lamps. Using the same lamp for both would make life easier if the CND one cures Bio gel??
