Primers are only used on the natural nails and serve one primary purpose (acid based or not) - to prepare the nail bed for acrylics or gels and to bond the acrylic or gel to the nail plate. They act like double sided sticky tape by making the nail plate more compatible with certain liquids. (Acrylics always require a primer)
Acid-based primers dissolve molecules of residual oils from the natural nail. These microscopic traces are not removed during normal scrubbing procedures and may lead to service breakdown. It also disinfects and dehydrates the nail.
Methacrylic acid has a chemical structure that bonds better with the keratin in the nail and makes it more receptive to bonding with the acrylic enhancement product.
Nail Primers must be used with caution as some are very corrosive to skin. Nail primers, like most professional nail products, should never touch the skin; this can cause painful burns and scars.
If you have an acrylic customer that lifts even with primer, Bonder should be applied prior to primer.
The Primer liquid crystalises when cold, to prevent this please keep in a warm place.
