Is OPI nail lacquer the same as nail polish?

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.
