A Complete Guide to OPI’s STAR LIGHT Gel Lamp
OPI’s STAR LIGHT can do so much to improve your manis and your business. In addition to its sturdy drop-resistant structure* that withstands all your oops moments, our new LED light has a lot of bells and whistles that will up your nail game.
Here’s how to use it and what you should know.
How to Use STAR LIGHT
First, plug the adaptor cord into the back of your lamp, then plug it into an outlet. Flip the power switch ON–the time automatically sets to 30 seconds, so be sure to select your desired time using the 5, 30, 60, and 90 sec. buttons below the screen. Hate the beeping noise? No problem. Press and hold the “3s” button to shift between tone and silent mode. Watch the video for more.
How to Make STAR LIGHT Pedi Friendly
Easy. Simply remove the hand plate and pull out the adjustable feet for a comfortable pedicure.
How to Use the Hand Plate
What we love about the hand plate is that it’s simple to use. The flat plate guides the hand to proper placement for precision curing. When a hand is inserted, feel for the 5-finger stopper guide which features 4 grooves for fingers and a pad for clear thumb placement. Unlike our older lamps, we designed the finger stoppers to blend in with the plate’s flat surface to ensure your client is comfortable.
How to Clean STAR LIGHT
One major bonus is its grey finish. This won’t show dust, dirt, or imperfections like white or black designs, but when you need to clean it, here’s how: between services, remove the hand plate, wash, and allow it to dry. Follow that up by spraying the plate with EPA-registered cleaning solution on both sides, then wipe it down. When the lamp is unplugged and cool, wipe down the interior and exterior with a disinfectant cloth or cleaning solution, making sure you avoid the LED diodes.
If you get gel polish on the lamp, no sweat. STAR LIGHT is acetone resistant thanks to its OPI Resist Polymer exterior, so either clean gel off with N.A.S. 99, or if it’s cured, use lacquer remover.
We added a steel handle for easy transportation to and from stations or jobs. Rubber feet allow for stability (no more sliding around!), and we created a wide opening and spacious interior for a variety of hand sizes.
*Resistant to functional damage after accidental drops.
