CND LED Lamp

In the nail industry, LED lamps have been around for quite some time however with other brands that I feel raced to bring get out I have watched them either be recalled all put a hold on the sale of them whilst glitches what ironed out.  That is one of the many things that I like in a company like CND, they have the resources to rush products through and get it to market early on but rather than doing that they prefer to hold back and perfect it before it's released for the professional to purchase.

Today's post is all about the new CND LED lamp.   I have filmed a full demonstration of this lamp, to watch it click here or it shall be linked at the end of this post.

The first thing you need to know is that the LED Lamp will work with all existing Shellac and Brisa products, it was designed specifically for this.

Of course the biggest plus side to having an LED lamp is that it cures products a lot faster.   This is particularly beneficial for nail art where the client may need to cure their hands a few times during the design.

Five beams of light come down from the umbrella section of the lamp with a further two on either side of it to cure thumbs evenly.  CND Shellac is cured in five pulses which last ten seconds and the colour coat and top coat times are halved, taking just 60 seconds each.

I did make a few notes to tell you from The Event:

  • Clients with longer nails you just need to move their hand back a little further and that it is a pedicure friendly.
  • Bio and optical testing means it's safe for eyes. 
  • Jan Arnold also mentioned to be careful when cleaning the lamp the umbrella where the light comes from with the mirrors.  Do not scratch it or use acetone on it as this will effect the cure.

Comparing the new LED lamp to the old CND UV lamp you can see a massive difference in size.  It's a lot more compact and overall less bulky.

The bulbs should last 10k hours so in theory technology should have evolved before lamp needs to be replaced.  It is 36 watts of energy too.

I love that you can see right the way through the lamp to the other side, it's extremely modern.  The colour of the light is also pretty and a bit futuristic.

I have to say, although you will need to contact your local supplier for prices, I am absolutely blown away with the price of it, considering it's CND branded as well as the technology that it has.

I actually can't believe how small it is as well, even down to the power cord being neatly plugged in underneath as opposed to the UV lamp where as it stuck out of the back meaning the space required was even more.

Lastly is the speed it actually comes on at, its immediate which you will see in the video.  It's also a lot more quieter then the UV Lamp.  I hope you enjoy watching the video!
