So I was doing a clients nail last night and I realised I didn't use primer!!
I haven't mentioned it but now I'm panicking.
Are they going to lift/drop off??

I bought a trial kit of it as I'm testing it out - usually use NSI but want a change and I completely forgot about primer.
I really hope this is true!

I did my Cnd foundation training almost 7 years ago. We were taught using radical and had the need to use primer drummed into us. Since then, I've often read there's no need for primer, although I'm not sure if this is more for retention users or not?

Anyway, I can't say I ever noticed much difference either way regarding using/not using it. I wouldn't fret too much, if I were you.

The "+" in Retention+ means that primer has already been added to it, so there is no "need" to use primer if using Retention+, but you can if you want/need to. Definitely need to use primer with Radical and Moxie. Neither have primer already added.

Sorry, but I just need to correct this, there is no primer within the Retention+ monomer it just doesn't need to be used with it.
I know when it was launched that was what was thought, but it definitely isn't the case.

Thanks, Izzidoll, how about radical? I was taught to use primer with it and then read later on, within salongeek, that it wasn't actually needed. Can't say I noticed much difference with or without, just a bit of an insurance policy against lifting?

It was always taught to use CND acid free primer with Radical monomer, but as you say it was more of an Insurance policy to help new techs, as you got more proficient and confident in your prep and application primer really became superfluous.
