Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

If you’re looking for a less expensive solution to salon gel manicures, buying a gel curing lamp and doing your manicures at home might be the way to go. The key to gel or shellac manicures is making sure they are cured under the right type of lamp for curing your brand of polish. Some lamps will work with any brand and some only work with certain brands. Look for wide openings to avoid dings in your polish, and easy-to-use timer settings so you aren’t guessing about cure times. Our top picks have long-lasting bulbs, comfortable hand rests, and heat ventilation. UV exposure can be a concern, so a good habit is to apply sunscreen to the backs of your hands before using the lamp.
