Not what I expected
I have been into doing my own gel/gelish nails for several months now...My nails are naturally not strong, they are flimsy, bendy and rip and tear easily....I reserched IBD bonder and asked the sallys associate about it, and she recommended that I use it over a primer....Needless to say, It does nothing to keep my gel on....I have better luck not using anything other than OPI Bond Aid and then doing my gel manicure...The price for this is outrageous!!! And the product is not good quality...at least not for me...It did nothing to help keep my gel on....

The other so called pro must not be using gels, or doesn't know how. This stuff is gold if you are using IBD gels.

Exactly what I needed!
My nails would lift after 4-5 days using only a primer. I read that I should use a bonder along with a primer and was surprised to find that it actually did the trick. Now my nails last 2-3 weeks without lifting. I am not sure of the price comparison, but it is worth the money I save on not using so much of my other materials redoing my nails each week!

In order for this product to work you have to use a ridiculously tiny amount and let it cure for at least 3 times as long as the directions indicate. I've had much, much better results with just skipping this product all together. Ordinary acrylic primer does a better job.
