OPI Nail Polish
With so many OPI Nail Polishes to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start. Along with their core colour range, OPI releases limited edition colours in celebration of various designers, themes, and seasons. Colours come in different formulas: Nail Lacquer, GelColor, Powder Perfection, and Infinite Shine. Each has its own benefits that appeal to different customers.Formulas
Nail Lacquer is the most standard formula in wide use for OPI nail polish, lasting two weeks or less. It has the widest colour range and includes OPI Glitter Nail Polish. GelColor has the benefit of wearing for longer on nails and being much more chip-resistant than typical nail polish. This formula works best in the hands of a professional, as it involves tools and precision that a manicurist would have. Another formula available to nail technicians is the Powder Perfection. It has the same 2-3 week staying power of GelColor, but it adds strength to the nails in the form of powder acrylic. Infinite Shine is longer lasting than OPI Nail Lacquer, but individuals are able to apply and remove this nail polish without the aid of nail techs. It also has the luster of the GelColor nail polish.Essentials
Nail Lacquer is longer lasting, with a translucent base coat and top coat. This three-layer system makes colour stronger and more chip resistant. However, you can apply Nail Lacquer alone, if desired. Similarly, Infinite Shine has a three part system, with the nail colour as the second step. The base and top coat are necessary to retain the lasting quality and shine. Both Powder Perfection and GelColor require professional tools, such as a LED light to cure the colour.Colours
OPI has a wide selection of colours in each of their ranges, such as OPI pink nail polish and OPI red nail polish. Every colour of the rainbow appears in their collection. Not only that, but different finishes are available in many shades. These polishes give off flat matte, glossy, glittery, and holographic finishes.On Trend
OPI stays on trend on by releasing colour polish collections that reflect what is happening now. This can include colours that are popular in fashion and colours that reflect a current theme in our lives. They have collaborated with notable designers to create collections, and have released colours reflective of a popular movie.
