Founded in 1981, OPI first established its roots in the professional nail industry, taking the brand to consumers with the launch of 30 groundbreaking Nail Lacquer shades in 1989. With its famous bottle, incredible colors, high-quality product and unique names, OPI revolutionized the nail care industry. In fact, some of these original shades – Alpine Snow, OPI Red, Malaga Wine – became so iconic, they are still sold today! For more than 25 years, OPI has offered users a ‘message in a bottle,’ creating a worldwide Culture of Color embracing color as a powerful tool for self-expression.

At Home Manicure, Professional Result
Step 1: Prep your nails! Remove existing nail lacquer then trim and shape nails by filing in one direction only to prevent breakage! Apply cuticle oil, push back cuticles and remove hangnails. Finally, cleanse to remove oil.
Step 2: Apply base coat to prime the nail surface, increase lacquer adhesion and prevent discoloration.
Step 3: Apply two coats of Nail Lacquer, using three strokes for each coat. Apply the first down the middle and then one on each side for complete coverage.
Step 4: Apply top coat over the nail. Don’t forget to cap the nail’s free edge to keep color from chipping!
Our OPI Top Coats are clear and perfect for this type of manicure or pedicure. One of my favorites is our Plumping Top coat making your nail bed appear larger.
