Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
I use this product all the time. I was a CND Shellac addict but my nail artist moved away. So I started doing my own nails at home. I bought the Red Carpet line to use at home. I liked the color options. The prep part was a total MUST HAVE. The gel adhesion was not as good without it. YOU have to remove your oils to get max adhesion. Alcohol is super drying to my surrounding nail/finger areas and this is so much better since it easy to concentrate on the nail itself. I also use this before applying Jamberry wraps. Works awesome! Wraps stay on longer and don't lift at all! Super happy with this product.
Reviewers are right in that proper prep is needed for a long lasting mani. You just don't need this product. You get exactly the same results with 90+% isopropyl alcohol. Save your money for nice polish.

I use this for my toes. File your nails and shape and apply before your regular polish. It makes even the cheapest nail polish have a shiny gel like finish especially after clear shine top coat. Helps polish stay on longer.

I've been doing self-gel polish mains for approximately 4 years. I'll never go back to regular polish. I do a job that's hard on my nails and this was a great investment. I get at least 2 weeks out of the polish.

For those will HEMA allergies this does not have that Ingredient. Their other primer does this one does not. Its perfect amd does the job. I will repurchase. Its small but its good for me.

I use this prep before the base coat when I powder dip my nails. I can tell the difference in a few days if I used the adhesion prep base. The dip lasts much longer, as opposed to peeling off after a few days without the prep base.

pro tip- maybe get this in the store. the bottle was completely empty when i got my shipment and this had leaked all over everything. it wasn't even broken, just came unscrewed.

Mary C from Bowling Green, KY
Love this, it took me a while to figure out that the best way to keep your gels on the nail more than a couple days is to prep them properly. I use this and it works!

So, I always use this product, but the last 3 bottles have been half empty, as in NOT FULL. Wasting my money, and I don't like that. I don't know if it's an Ulta thing or not, but when I buy this at the Beauty Supply store, it is never like that. I do not recommend this product for that reason.

It really works

This product is good and makes my manicure last longer.

I am pretty sure the brand of gel I am using is the culprit for peeling off the entire nail, but not sure if this even helped.... will have to attempt with different gel brand! Pretty sure prep/primers are the same!

Buff nail a little before applying for optimal results.

This product is just what I needed to make sure my at home gel manicure lasts longer than a few days.

The lid doesn't screw on completely and it leaks. Make sure you store upright
DMac from CA
great to prep the nails
Jean from Ohio
I am a Surgical Assistant so even nail gel only is good for a kuttle iver a week. Chips are a problem and I cannot have them on my nails at work. I used the Prep Max Adhesion Sanitizer for the first time 10 days ago, and I have NO chips so far!
