Q: Essential Bond doesn’t have the odor 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 odorless because it is 100% acid free.

Q: Why do I need 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 odor 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 odor and are not corrosive.
