Nail lacquer is typically more durable than traditional nail polish formulas and is usually slightly thicker, which allows it to be more chip resistant. In general, nail lacquers are solvent-based coatings that contain pigment and are applied to nails using a brush. Nail lacquers do not require curing in a lamp to dry.
What are Gel Nails? OPI’s gel nail polish is officially called “GelColor Soak-off Gel Lacquer” and in short, a gel manicure is a coat of colored gel that looks deceptively similar to nail polish. It’s a thin brush-on formula, designed for high performance and a glossier finish than regular nail polish.
OPI can always be counted on for high-quality nail polish from the drugstore. The brand has a few white shades we love, including Alpine Snow (a crisp, opaque white), Funny Bunny (a soft white), and My Vampire is Buff (a subtle off-white).
With high-quality formulas, fashionable nail polish colors and iconic names, OPI’s highly pigmented nail polishes are extra rich, long-lasting and chip-resistant, lasting up to seven days. Each nail polish features OPI’s exclusive ProWide brush for flawless application.
