What to replace the nail primer with?

It is highly recommended if you want improved adhesion and increased durability for your nail polish, gel or acrylic. But, the use of a nail primer isn’t mandatory. Today, the nail supply expert Maryton will introduce you to several alternatives to nail primer.

If you don’t have a nail primer or if you prefer to avoid its use, here are some possible alternatives:

  • Use a nail file to create a rougher surface and help nail polish, gel or acrylic stick.
  • Thoroughly clean and degrease the nail before applying the base coat. This way you improve the adhesion and prolong the life of your nail polish, gel or acrylic.
  • Apply a coat of light colored nail polish before applying the main color. To help prevent stains on the natural nail.

But it should be noted that these alternatives may not give the same results as a nail primer. It is therefore best to use them only if you have no other option. In addition, I also advise you to invest in some professional manicure kits to care for your nails!
