Natural Nail Prep

  1. Spray your and your client’s hands with Purify and gently massage. Push back the cuticle and gently remove the shine with a Endurance 180/180 Grit Buffer. Using a Nail Wipe saturated with Nailpure Plus, press and rub into the natural nails.
  2. Apply Essential Bond to the natural nail. Remove the brush from the bottle and wipe along the edge of the bottle, then brush onto two natural nails. Re-dip the brush and repeat the process until the nails are coated. Allow to dry for one minute. They will not appear chalky white.
  3. If your client has had prior nail enhancements and has experienced lifting problems, it is recommended to first apply Essential Bond Enhancer to the natural nail after the use of Nailpure Plus, then continue with the next step.
  4. Apply an even layer of Essential Base Coat,  this thin layer will ensure that proper bonding and adhesion will occur for the subsequent layers. Cure in Dual Cure Lamp, LED for 30 seconds or UV for 2 minutes.


Q: Essential Bond doesn’t have the odour of traditional nail primers; is it still going to work well?
A: Yes. Essential Bond is extremely effective in aiding with product adhesion to the natural nail. It is odourless because it is 100% acid-free.

Q: Why do I need a primer?
A: Natural nail primers are frequently used to promote enhancement adhesion. NSI manufactures two types of primers. Acid-based are the original primers and generally contain 30 – 100% methacrylic acid. They need to be used sparingly. Methacrylic acid has a strong odour and can be highly corrosive. It should never be allowed to touch the skin. Superbond is acid-based. Acid-free primers like Essential Bond do not contain any acid components. They need to be used liberally. These types of primers are very low in odour and are not corrosive.
