User instructions

  1. Attach the plug of the adapter to the Nail Dryer and then plug the adapter into the wall socket.
  2. Select a timer. The timer has a 10s/30s/60s and 99s function. The 99s function is a low heat mode. The lamp will start at low power (low heat) and slowly get warmer.
  3. You can also put your hand directly into the lamp. This will activate the infrared sensor and you will see the time counting down from 120 seconds to 0. You can now decide how long you want to dry your nails.
  4. If you choose a fixed timer time, you can then put your hand in the lamp. The timer will stop automatically.
  5. If you use the timer, it will also stop when you take your hand out of the dryer.
  6. The 99s timer function has a low-heat mode. When you choose this, the wattage will slowly increase. This prevents heat peaks that can occur with builder gels.

Do not use the lamp for more than 600s (10 minutes) at a time.

A longer use may shorten the life span of the lamp.

NEVER look into the UV light directly.

Excessive exposure to UV light can age and damage the skin, increase the risk of melanoma and damage the eyes.
