Gelish Pro Bond is an acid-free product that helps with the adhesion of gel polish and is used to prepare nails for the application of Gelish polish and acrylics.
Gelish is a gel nail polish that is to be applied like regular polish but must be cured using a UV lamp. Gelish lasts much longer than your regular manicure; approximately 3 weeks without chipping or peeling. Dry time is instant, making the application process quick and easy.
See basic application instructions below or view detailed instructions here.

I was doing gel nails at home for quite awhile but could never figure out why my gel polish kept lifting and peeling, sometimes as soon as the next day. I tried many prepping methods and even purchased a new LED/UV lamp to see if it made a difference but with no avail. Never bother to get primer cause I don't even recall if they often used it at nail salons. I eventually switched over to regular polish but the drying time takes waaaayyyy too long and I always end up with dents. After many frustrating nail results I finally caved and got the Gelish ProBond and Foundation. So far it's been over a week and a half and my gel nail has not budged at all. I'm honestly so frickin happy that I finally found sometimes that works and not have to constantly have to redo my nails every other day.
I am using this primer with gelish base and top coat. The manicure lasted 2 weeks already, and going. I switched the system from Shellac because it wasn't staying even a week on my nails. Very pleased with the results of gelish.
This works so great to bond the gel to the nail, I don't get peeling gel when I use this!
That is the secret for a non peeling manicure. The base and top coat was peeling after 2 days of home manicuring (with lamp) Now it stays for sure one week, I will get the answer next week for 2 weeks.
