Nail Drill Update

One the most frequently asked questions I get it is what nail drill do I use. I picked up this nail drill from Amazon and have been using it for 2 months now. Here I’ll share a little update on this nail drill and how I’m liking it so far.

Other Products mentioned:
Medium grit Safety Bit
Nail Dust Collector

This nail drill has been working great so far. I like it more than the portable nail drill I was using mainly because it is much quieter and it doesn’t vibrate as much. I also love that it is fairly small so it doesn’t take up much space on my desk.

This Nail drill arrived from Amazon well packaged.

I love the feel of the hand piece. It is made of metal and has a weighted feel but not too heavy.

The Best UV LED Nail Lamp? SUN UV/LED 48 Watt Nail Lamp Review 1 year Update

My Favorite LED Nail Lamp – 1 year Update. I get questions all the time about nail lamp recommendations. I want to do an update on my favorite nail lamp, the SUN UV/LED 48 watt nail lamp. I’ve had this lamp for a little over a year and it has been working great.

Sun UV/LED 48 Watt Nail Lamp

It has some great features. There’s a 10, 30, 60, and 99 second timer. This nail lamp has a low heat option which comes in handy for limiting heat spikes in builder gel applications. I also love that it cures both UV and LED gels.

Nail Lamp Features

My favorite feature is the sensors that automatically power the nail lamp on when you place your hand inside.
