Herein, can you use any LED light for gel nails?
Pretty much any brand of gel polish can be used with another brand of gel polish. Today, most gel polish brands will cure in LED or UV lamps, but not all of them do. CND Shellac is supposed to only cure in a UV lamp, but some people can get it to cure in an LED lamp.
Why are my gel nails tacky?
After curing, your nails will feel tacky to the touch. Don't worry, they are dry, it's just that the gel polish has a tacky (also called inhibition) layer when it's done curing. Use a lint free wipe with 91% alcohol to wipe off the tacky layer on top of the gel polish.
