Customer Experience: I am sure everyone at some point has ordered from Amazon, and I am no exception.
As most professionals do, I have a Prime account to get things sent to me quickly. Amazon is great at handling product or shipping issues. I haven’t had a bad experience yet from any of their vendors. Once you pay for shipping a couple times and still have to wait weeks to get your order, you’ll pay for Prime also. Or, you’ll do like I used to do and forgot you ordered it, then bought it somewhere else, then get it in the mail and make lots of swear combos once you realize what you did.
Product Performance: As I have said before, I am on the lookout for products that can be utilized on many different levels, rather than just one or two like a typical beauty blog. It’s all well and good if something is inexpensive and looks nice, but if it’s hard to use or came at the cost of many different business ethical codes I operate by being violated, forget it. Plus, while I am buying all of these products on my own dime and paying all the bills of running a blog, I have to be picky before picking something up to test out.
I usually have hesitations about buying Chinese products. They’re made poorly, they break easily, they usually lack common sense in manufacturing. Their directions for assembly are a dyslexic’s nightmare. They’re attractive with price and marketing promises, but it usually evens things out with how meh the product actually is. This lamp though seems to be a delightful exception.
This lamp so far is just what I needed for nail work, without the typical $150 price tag that comes with having lamp extension arms come down so low over a client’s hands. I was looking at them at a beauty show just this past May and was dumbfounded as to why they were so expensive. Not even a magnifier or anything for $150? Laaame.
As you look into by bottom drawer, you can see the skinny, folded up arm with the base right next to it. This is perfect for my custom desk, which doubles as a piece of decorative furniture. I’ll post another page about my desk and how you can make one too, since most manicure tables are junk and don’t hold much.
The arm folds up to about the width of a 1 1/2 inch binder, so it could even fit in my shallow drawer.
I like how I can adjust the brightness, that I can adjust the warmth and coolness of the light to suit my nail art work, how the light shoots straight down to the table, and how light it is while steady on it’s base. I’m particularly fond of that I can store it in my desk so it won’t ‘vanish’ or ‘be borrowed’ when I am not at work. I can also use this lamp while watching videos of techniques without having a glare on it, which was a problem with my old lamp.
For people with OCD, the smudges the plastic gets from fingerprints can be annoying, but they’re easy to wipe off. It’s the same type of smudge you get when you touch your phone plate…and reminds me why I should wear gloves more often 🙂 The joints could get really dusty if you file a lot, but if you cover the base with some plastic wrap it should shield it enough while still being able to use the control panel. It takes a light touch to operate the control panel.
If you have a lamp that you’ve used that is made in the USA, can extend it’s arm really low, has cool toned and very bright light under $50, please let me know in the comments, or message me. I would love to find more products to post as solutions for beauty professionals.
