Honest reviews


Not great

Not only the dryer is not very effective, instead of the ordered brand new item, I received somebody else’s return with the scratches on the unit and visible signs of being somewhat used. Items is being returned, I will not order it again.

Broken on arrival

I was very excited to receive this Epica nail dryer. I had recently purchased some LCN polish seal and tried it under a lite bulb and it didn’t work so I decided to buy a UV nail dryer. I looked at several and decided on this one because it had a fan, the controls are on the front and was large enough for both hands. When it arrived it was well packed and came with the bulbs already installed. I plugged it in and it appeared to come on but the uv bulbs would not work. The fan would come on but not the bulbs, they did not appear broken. I unplugged the unit and plugged it back in and turned it on again this time nothing worked. The unit also didn’t come with any user instructions it just had instructions on how to apply nail polish. I though that was very strange. Don’t waste you time ordering this item. I am going to order another brand nail dryer, hopefully it will work.

Awesome – controls in the front a must have if you are doing your own nails

it has an annoying beep sound when the timer is up though! Worked well with CND shellac. Controls in the front was great.

Nail dryer

Awesome!!!! This can be a dryer by itself or you can use it with the light. It also has various time settings. Great, great, great!

Geraldine Lynchburg, VA

This Is Awesome!!

This UV/Dryer works awesomely. It is very streamlined and easy to use. It cures UVs very evenly and you can use the dryer/UV up to 7 minutes!!! I wish I had 2!! lightweight, not bulky at all Highly Recommend for personal or salon use.

Works like a charm

Great buy! I use this when I do my shellac nails and the two hand UV light and dryer works really good. I can use this nail dryer without the UV light for my non-shellac nail color.

Cindy Gibson, LA

Its a very good product

It works great if after a while ur nails are sticky at the end just put alcohol on ur nails and put them in again

Two Thumbs Up

This is such an amazing, beautiful double wide nail dryer. It’s 54 watts, has an off switch in the back, but a front panel. There is a light and air dryer, and you can set it as high as 7 minutes, although I don’t know why you would do that. It comes with a warranty paper and a booklet, and an extra bulb. I’ve used it for IBD gel polish, and it’s worked perfectly. I know I can use harder non-soak off gel, and other types of UV nail items. I’ve yet to do toes, but I’m confident that it will work.

Save yourself some money, find a different UV Lamp!!!

The constant beeping is annoying, it doesn’t stay on until I shut it off, the light bulbs are expensive as hell to replace ($20 a bulb and it takes 6, yes 6) and it’s HUGE!!!

Haley Loving, TX

One word – Awesome..

We have tried other models and makes but this by far exceeded our expectations. We love it and will surely recommend to all our friends.

Juana Una, SC


Love this dryer…works great and can with a replacement bulb. I would recommend to others. All settings work as advertised.

Amelia Radford, VA


This thing sucked! Used a total of two times and then the light wouldn’t come on anymore after that. Cheaply made piece of garbage very disappointed

Best nail drier for gels or regular polish

I did my research when looking for a nail curer and dryer and am so happy I got this one. It is so versatile, i use the fan in it to dry my regular polish, and use the uv with the fan to feel my hands cool while i cure my gel polish. It has a timmer in it was starts at 2 min and goes all the way up to seven min. I’ve never experienced any problems with it and have owned it for about 6 months now. It came with extra bulbs but i havent needed to use them yet.

Margo Whitmer, WV

I am in LOVE with this dryer!

I use the Shellac system and this dryer is awesome! It’s larger than the standard dryer. You can fit both feet and both hands in at once. It is easy to use and they even included a warranty and an extra bulb. This shipped super fast and was sent packaged very nicely and securely. Highly recommend this and the seller!!! A++++

Love my double wide Epica curing lamp and dryer

I chose the Epica double wide UV curing nail dryer because it is wide enough for both hands, it is 54 watts compared to most of the other lesser wattages and the great price. It came with and extra bulb and fuse. It works like the professional curing dryers they use at salons you get the same results. It’s a dryer too and the flow of air is much stronger than my regular air nail dryer. Now the only thing I stop in the nail salon for is waxing my brows. I have saved money and the item has already paid for itself. Loving my Double Wide.

Elaine Cooks, MI

It works

This is nice for gel nails. I misread and thought it was LED, it’s not. It works fairly well but needs some extra drying then some of the other brands I’ve tried. The timer and fan is very nice. Quite bulky if you don’t have much room.

Olga Council, ID

Used it for the first time

Ok so I’ve only used this once but it did a fantastic job curing my gel polish. I am very happy and hope it continues to work so well.
