Complete the 3-step system for optimal results  

You can reassure your clients that you’re using the no1 global salon brand*, and that our products are safe when used according to our guidelines by qualified professionals.  

OPI’s colour systems perform best when used as part of the 3 step system – base coat, colour, top coat. For OPI GelColor, the product formulation has been designed to be perfectly calibrated under the light settings of the OPI Gel Lamp. Following the manufacturer’s guidelines and using the full system also ensures that you’re covered by your liability insurance.

Why is it important to use the OPI lamp to complete your mani-pedi?   

It’s extremely important that the lamp used to cure your gel polish matches the brand you are using. Gel that isn’t cured all the way through can leave clients open to potential skin irritations or allergies. The OPI GelColor product formulation has been designed to be best cured under the light settings of an OPI Lamp so for best results ensure you use the full system.  

Safety First  

You can be reassured that the safety of all OPI products is our top priority. All our products undergo a rigorous quality and safety testing protocol - we meet or even exceed all applicable legislative and regulatory requirements related to product safety. This is also true for GelColor, which is safe to use when used as directed by a qualified professional, following manufacturer’s instructions and using the full system.
