- OPI Bond-aid Ph Balancing Agent 1oz
Does What is Suppose to
Bondaid is for Acrylic and gel nails. I is to ph balance the nail so product adheres. I have used this for years for acrylics and now gels and does exactly what is suppose to do.
My new best friend
Ladies/FriendsThis is best thing since SPANX. I decided to learn how to apply gel nails myself and order gel polish and a gel lamp. The lamp was defective, so now I had to send it back which means a delay in this project. But I tried this OPI Bond Aid since hearing about it on the internet with just regular nail polish. Well this is now the 5th day and there is no chipping or peeling. I did also apply Sally Hansen Mega Shine and this also helps (apply the following day manicure). I even washied dishes and still it looks good. If you are one of those people who have reactions to acetone and so can’t have acrylic or gel nails applied. This product will help. PS make sure you pick a superior nail polish or nail lacquer, that also helps. I will still wait for the lamp to do gel nails, but at least I have options if I don’t want to do gel nails. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. If you are a DIY person, then take the plunge. Best wishes.
Definitely a Must
Use this before applying your base coat to make sure that your nails are super clean and ready to absorb the base coat. This is almost as crucial as the Base coat to making sure your Gel nails don’t peel off.
I use this product on my husband before I apply gel polish. This really makes the gel polish great and his gel polish stays on for more than 2 weeks. I do not use this product as I am allergic to acrylic and cannot use this product. But if I was not allergic I would use this product in a minute.
This really helps clean your nails prior to painting them with the gelish nail polish. I have forgotten to use this before and my color comes of much sooner.
Not for me
I don’t know what all the ranting and raving is over this product. Didn’t think much of it. Gave it to a friend who is really into gel nails.
Not much of a difference.
It’s okay, I didn’t see much of a difference as far as chipping or my nail polish staying on longer. I will continue to use it but will not purchase another one.
Im impressed this stuff is worth the money. Keeps regular & gel polish on better. Tried Gelish & I prefer this brand plus its a big bottle.
It works great for my OPI Gel color it helps it adhere longer without some nasty smell! and its OPI the best there is!!
Great product but then again it’s OPI and they take pride in putting out great products that nail technicians can use and recommend as well as a person that doesn’t professionally do nails. I’m a fan of the product.
I use this before I apply my base coat for my OPI Gelcolor and it seems to be working great to help my base coat adhere to my natural nail. I also use this before regular nail polish and it helps my regular polish last longer as well.
Good amount of product
Not as good as Nailene’s primer or Sensationail’s, but it is much more accessible and does the job well. You get a fairly large bottle as well and it is not easily knocked over like the skinny Nailene bottles are.
NOT MUCH TO SAY EXCEPT THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO BOND THE POLISH TO YOUR NAILS MAKES IT LAST TWICE AS LONG
Works a little too well
Bond Aid is one of those "industry secrets" that differentiate a home "did it yourself" manicure from salon-quality results. This is suitable as a dehydrator on your natural nail bed before applying gel manicure base. Use sparingly: if you coat the entire nail the gel polish will be more difficult to soak off than if you left the edges uncoated (at your next salon gel mani appointment, watch how nail techs apply this very carefully to the base/center only of your nails).
