Hi all,

Can you please give me your words of wisdom regarding what desk light you use please. I am worried that if I buy a desk light that uses an LED bulb which most of them do these days, that it will start curing the gel as I am still applying it?

Would love to know your experiences.

Thanks

Nail Harmony sell desk lamps. Very reasonably priced. I'm waiting for my slimline lamp to die so that I can get one. They look fabulous, have a choice of lighting and you can charge your mobile (or your clients) on it too

The nail harmony ones are brilliant. Really reasonably priced too and the fact they charge your phone is a bonus :) x

Hi, just to let you know this lamp is brilliant. Really bright white light, and very slim design so doesn't take up to much space. Price is far better than most other daylight lamps I looked at so I can highly recommend. Xx
