To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was pleased that this was compatible with the different brands of gel polish that I had bought. I put the setting on 60 seconds per coat without the booster option, and it cured perfectly. I have no knowledge of other brands as I started recently doing home manicures-- so I would say this is an excellent value for money. There is also ample room in the unit to dry your entire hand or toes at the same time without worry of the light not hitting each nail evenly so this is a time saver, too.
I bought this for at-home mani padi (I got a set of gel polish), and it works just fine. I apply thin layers of gel polish? And leave it under the light for 120 seconds each layer (I didn't try less time, tbh) I still don't know how to use the slower/stronger options. Sp far, it does what it's supposed to do and I highly recommend.
