Ensure a good bond on even the trickiest of nails and create lasting manicures with the range of nail primers from NSI Nails Australia.

Choose from the original formula and acid-free nail primers online

NSI Nails Australia offers a selection of traditional acid-based and acid-free nail primers that work lightning fast to prepare the nail plate for nail extensions. Suitable for both gel and acrylics, our nail primers work by dehydrating the nail’s surface, removing natural oils that can be a barrier to a good bond. Especially if a client has a curved or a tricky nail shape, a nail primer will help you achieve a lasting adhesive connection, preventing nail lifting, chipping and cracking.

The low odour formula is pleasant to use, and many of our nail primer products contain nourishing vitamins. The result is a fast-working product you can always rely on to give your nails the staying power they need.

What is a nail primer?

Under regular nail polish, a base coat is usually sufficient to prep the nail for a manicure. However, unlike base coats that contain plasticisers and are designed to provide a flexible base for nail polish, nail primers remove oil from the nail’s surface and provide a thin, sticky layer of adhesive. This helps both acrylic and gel nail extensions bond to the nail plate.

What can I use instead of nail primer?

While a clear base coat can be used under regular nail polish, you really can’t miss out on the nail primer step for gel polish or acrylic nails. Nail primer will also help prevent regular nail polish from chipping and cracking while also stopping nails from lifting.

What type of nail primers does NSI Nails Australia sell?

We offer both traditional acid-based bonding nail primers and acid-free primers to give you a choice, depending on your preference for superior bonding or a more gentle formula.
