Are they still selling the UV lamp? I thought it had been discontinued.

I’ve only used the LED lamp, so can’t comment on the UV, but it does what is should and more quickly than the UV.

Definitely the LED lamp- I have used both the LED lamp cures shellac quicker which makes a difference with finishing times and the UV lamp you have to replace the bulbs- you don’t have to worry about this with the LED.
The LED look nicer too and easier to clean.

I have both but prefer the LED. Always buy the latest design available that way you keep up with trends. Not sure they will discontinue the bulbs any time soon but you never know, with LED you don’t have that problem! The LED lamp is like a Rolls Royce when comparing to the UV version.
