Primer Strength Comparison


Acid Primers:

- Acid primers, have the ultimate strong bond and should not be used under gel polish or applied directly to the nail tip unless directed by the manufacturer.

- Acid primers are typically used for enhancing adhesion with traditional acrylic and hard gel systems.


UV Primers:

- UV primers offer a superior bond due to their photochemical reaction and association with UV curing gels.

- They provide maximum strength and longevity to gel nail enhancements.

- When properly applied, UV primers create a secure and durable bond that can withstand daily activities


Non-Acid Primers:

- Non-acid primers can provide a stable and durable bond for most nail enhancement applications.

- They offer sufficient strength and longevity to meet the needs of clients with regular nail care routines.

- Non-acid primers maintain adhesion without the use of harsh chemicals, making them suitable for a wider range of clients.
