    This is the nail lamp I currently own. It's not big enough for 2 hands at the same time, which imo is the only downside (very compact). It's a beast so far as curing stuff though!

    Still going strong with the gels. Every 2-3 weeks just cutting my nails (I like to keep them short, just a bit over the finger), apply the gel and not having to worry.
    My top favorite gels are from Born Pretty. I don't like Modelones anymore, they chip fast. This is what i use now https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005...3d03433aqIp7v8 they are dirt cheap, i literally ordered 10 bottles and still using it 1 year later )) Maybe because i keep my nails short and don't consume much.
    I use base coat and top coat from a local brand, it's more expensive but i feel my nails last longer thanks to that. It's higher quality and it worth because it's the first that goes in contact with the nail.

    I can come with a new answer, now that i got some experience. Apparently, it's your gel polish. You might use something that is not a good quality. I have been trying some brands and some do really burn when you put it under the lamp. Yes, it should heat a little, but it shouldn't burn that bad, unless it's a low quality.

    To avoid getting lumpy nails, try to use thin layers and spread it well. Being gel, it doesn't dry and you can take your time spreading the gel evenly on your nail, as patient as you can and as long as you like. Just try to not overload the brush, always have liiiitle gel on it and eventually add extra, than trying to remove the excess from the nail.

    Does anybody know what to ask for in the shop if you want poly gel? Do you just say poly gel or is it called something else professionally?

    I get mine off amazon or Makartt's site. They make the best polygel by far.
    Haven't tried dip nails. One of my friends has a few times and hers never holds up well. might just be the brand used though, idk.
