Official Stockist of OPI
In the world of professional nail care, OPI is clearly the industry leader. However, OPI got its start in a surprising way. In 1981, what is now OPI started out as a small dental supply company. As the use of acrylics in the dental industry started to come into its own, OPI switched gears and developed an acrylic system for faux nails. The company marketed its new product to nail salons and soon realised that acrylic products were a phenomenal hit with clients.
In 1989, OPI expanded its product line to nail lacquers, gels, and other products. Fashionable colours with unforgettable names such as Pen & Pink, A Grape Fit, and Act Your Beige make OPI stand out amongst the competition. The brand's nail colours are available in many fashion-inspired shades to match any outfit or mood.
OPI is committed to providing nail professionals and their clients with high-quality products and services while staying on the leading edge of innovation and industry safety. A division of Coty, OPI is known for bringing the highest-quality formulas to market. The company's global presence now reaches to over 100 countries.
OPI signature colour-rich nail lacquers and nail gels are easy to apply, fast-drying, long-lasting, and chip-resistant. Additionally, the brand is proud to offer a full line of professional-quality nail care items such as nail treatments, finishing products, grooming tools, mani/pedi products, and acrylics.
OPI’s commitment to social responsibility reaches out on a corporate level. The company has participated in many fundraising activities to increase awareness for numerous charities, such as the Leukemia Research Foundation, the American Red Cross, and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Beyond polishes and nail treatments, you can find body care products, pedicure supplies, manicure scrubs, and moisture-rich lotions. There is something for everyone at OPI.
To keep its products as safe as possible for both professionals and their clients, OPI reformulated its nail lacquers in 2007 and eliminated dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, and toluene. OPI polishes also feature a patented brush to make application precise and easy. With its wide range of products, it is easy to see why consumers worldwide adore OPI.

When you apply your beautiful OPI colour, you want to do everything you can to keep it shiny and chip-free. To prepare your nails and ensure long-lasting wear, follow these simple steps:
Start with clean, dry nails to provide the best foundation for subsequent coats.
Apply OPI Base Coat on clean, dry nails. A base coat prolongs your colour and protects polish pigments from staining your nails.
Choose your favourite OPI polish from the wide variety of colours, textures, and finishes available.
Apply one stroke down the centre of your nail and then one on either side. Add one final stroke over the entire nail.
Allow the first coat to dry.
Apply a second coat in the same stroke pattern as the first coat. To ensure that your polish application looks as professional as possible, apply colour over the tip of your nail.
Allow the second coat to dry thoroughly.
Finally, add spectacular shine and a protective finish to your nails with one coat of OPI Top Coat. Follow the same stroke pattern as the previous colour coats, adding a touch of Top Coat over the tip of your nails to seal the colour and help prevent chips.
If you find yourself pushed for time, add a few drops of OPI Drip Dry to each nail. This effective product dries your nails instantly, so you can be out the door quickly!
For best results, take your time with your nail colour application. Let each coat dry thoroughly before adding the next coat, and enjoy your beautiful OPI nails!
