The most-asked-for brand in the industry! With a superior range of shades and the hottest special effects and textures, OPI is the go-to brand for nail fashion. From elegant classics to eye-popping brights, OPI has your color! Formaldehyde-free.
Follow these steps for a mani that lasts:
  • Start by applying OPI Base Coat or Treatment on clean, dry nails with cuticles pushed back.
  • For a perfect polish, apply one stroke of nail lacquer down the center of the nail, followed by one stroke along each side of the nail.
  • Smooth the surface of the nail with a final stroke of the brush. Then, apply a second coat of nail lacquer, pulling color over the tips of the nails.
  • Shine, seal, and protect with one coat of OPI Top Coat, pulling it over the tips of the nails to seal in color.
  • For a mani that's dry to the touch in minutes, apply 2 drops of OPI DripDry Lacquer Drying Drops to each nail.

            With a proper manicure, my nails look great for five days. No peeling or chipping is what I look for in a good nail polish. OPI does this for me.

                    Had to apply 2 coats because I like the color to be a tad darker. The nail polish went on so smoothly and didn't crack after a day like others, beautiful color, it's my absolute favorite and I get so many compliments on my nails! Nail polish also lasts forever

                        Is OPI a 5 free polish? I'm Looking for more natural polishes to use.

                        • Staff Expert

                          A:

                          OPI is a 3-free brand (no formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene). Although some OPI nail lacquer shades are indeed 5-free (no formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor, formaldehyde resin), not all of their nail lacquer shades are, so OPI does not claim to be a 5-free brand.

                          Originally, Pompeii Purple was created for the 2004 Greek Isles Collection by OPI; this shade is now part of OPI Classic Collection.

                          We suggest shades The Thrill of Brazil, Dutch Tulips, Color So Hot It Berns, Red My Fortune Cookie, and/or Big Apple Red. All feature a cream finish without shimmer.
