I think they are all both. There may be some old LeChat out there that may only be UV cure. Of course, Shellac is only UV cure. Should/would say on the bottle though.

Shellac, later this year, is coming out with their own LED lamp to cure with their polishes but it is unsure if other LED lamps would cure that polish.

There's also another one which retails in Sally's in the UK - I don't know if the American stores would carry it, I haven't seen it mentioned by anyone else?

ASP (All Season Professional) Signature range - LED cure

Retails at £24.98 per bottle for base/top and colours and can be purchased by consumers (unlike the Gelish which they will only sell to professionals). There are probably about 40 colours, they're very nice but a bit expensive for me!

What is the difference between the unacceptable and acceptable ones?

The unacceptable ones are ones that people have reported problems with, mostly with removal or with strong chemical smells, over the course of the exchanges. They are, for the most part, cheap knock off brands. A couple, like Gelac, are brands that have had problems drying up.

This is a list that was arrived at by general consensus for purposes of the swap. There are people that use the "no" brands and don't have an issue with knock-offs. You can search the brand names (or ask about) over on the Other SOG thread.

Yes, that is important. These were agreed upon based on our collective experiences, but lots of people use the no brands.

ahh I see, im trying to find ones that I don't have to spend $15+ per bottle but that still work good.
IBD Just Gel/EZ Flow TruGel - $8.25 at BeautyWest. SuperNails ProGel - at Ulta but only $7.95 at BeautyWest.

LeChat is an excellent brand. It costs $15.95 but you get the gel polish and the rnp for that.
