What is the difference between N³ Organic Gel + Primer and other nail products?
N³ is a revolutionary new hybrid polycarbonate product that contains absolutely no acids or monomers, it is bonded to the nail with a protein based bonding system which connects the protein molecules in the actual nail to the protein molecules in the product. Other products use an acid to corrode the nail bed to create a place for the product to adhere. EEEK! We know, it’s as bad as it sounds. N³ is weightless, durable, and lasts several weeks longer than acid. You have touch sensation and it grows with the nail instead of against it.
How is N³ organic?
N³ is contains an organic derivative of corn and is made from protein molecules and carbon atoms, which does not contain any acids or any other corrosive materials.
Why does N³ heat up during the curing process?
When the product is met by the ultra violet light, it solidifies almost immediately. During this process, the molecules are racing quickly in order to turn from a liquid form to a solid form, which creates friction on the nail bed and friction equals heat. Don’t worry, it’s not harmful, but it can sting if you don’t follow directions well. You just have to keep putting your hands/feet in and out of the UV light machine quickly, and once it’s solid, there is no sting. Ladies, we all know the saying: No pain, no gain!
Ouch! So it hurts?
Once again, if you’re not very good at following directions, it can sting. Does it hurt? Let’s just say the sting you’d feel is less painful than a Brazilian wax.
What are the health benefits to N³ products vs. other products?
Other products that use acids or monomers (such as acrylic), eat holes in the nail bed to create a place for the product to adhere. That’s right, acrylic products need to damage the nail so that it can stick. These holes that are created in the nail bed are cavities, which allow the product to get inside your bloodstream and cause multiple health problems. Yuck! The acids are corrosives and can be dangerous to both the client’s health, and the nail technician’s (hence why techs always wear masks). Once again, N³ does not use acids, therefore, it does not create a point of entry for any chemicals to get into your bloodstream. Even better, it’s actually healthy for your nails because it will seal, protect and allow your nails to grow without doing any damage.
You don’t wear a mask? So, it doesn’t stink?
You got it! N³ Gel and Primer is completely odorless and safe. The nail cleanse however is not; it does have a mild odor similar to nail polish remover, however it is an organic derivative of corn.
I’m allergic to acrylic nails. Can I still wear N³ nails?
Yes! N³ is completely hypo-allergenic and has no adverse reactions to date.
If my nails are damaged by acrylic products and I change to N³ Get + Primer, will I have to wear N³ forever?
Nope! N³ will actually help your nails heal and will promote healthy growth after about one to three fills. You’re not locked into the product and you can always take it off to wear your own natural nails.
This sounds new and interesting. Can I see how the process works?
I’m glad you asked! Here’s a video of a full set 🙂
