To replace dead UV light bulbs in a nail dryer you will need a blacklight type bulb. Nail dryers take one of two types of bulbs which are either PLS or PLL type.

The two types of blacklight bulbs can be identified by how many pins your lamp has. Please see the chart below for a further explanation of which bulb is which.
