While a gel nail dryer is specifically designed to cure or dry gel nail polish, it can also be used to dry regular nail polish. However, it may not be as effective as it is for curing gel polish.
Regular nail polish is formulated to dry through a process of evaporation, while gel polish is formulated to cure through exposure to UV or LED light. Gel nail dryers emit UV or LED light, which can help speed up the drying process of regular nail polish, but it may not dry the polish completely.
If you do choose to use a gel nail dryer to dry regular nail polish, it’s important to be cautious and avoid overexposure to the UV or LED light, as this can be harmful to your skin. Additionally, make sure to use a high-quality top coat to help seal and protect your polish from smudging or chipping.
Overall, while a gel nail dryer can be used to dry regular nail polish, it may not be the most effective method for drying regular polish. Using a quick-drying top coat and allowing ample time for the polish to dry naturally may be a better option.
