Can I Use UV Light To Dry Regular Nail Polish?

Written by Tara

Also, can regular polish be cured under my UV lamp? Only gel polish can be cured under a UV lamp. Regular polish dries on its own, while gel polish requires a lamp and won’t cure unless it’s sat under the lamp.

The UV light being emitted by the UV lamps does nothing to dry nail polish, but the heat from the light unit itself will assist in drying nail polish. A more effective nail polish dryer would be a heat light with a small fan or some apparatus that has heating capabilities as well as a fan to circulate the air.
