Can UV nail dryers dry polish without a UV top coat?

Answer

UV nail dryers are more commonly referred to as UV nail lights. 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. A nail dryer that does not use UV light would be more economical than using a UV light unit to dry the nail polish.

How Do I Learn Nail Art If No One Is Available to Teach Me?

I am an apprentice in a natural nail salon. Sometimes I get requests for nail art. I would love to learn how to do different nail designs, but I am a beginner. I live in Virginia and there are never nail seminars or lectures or even hands-on classes here. Do you have any suggestions on learning nail art designs when there is no one in my area to teach it? Watching videos is good but sometimes you just need hands-on.
