OPI Application & Removal Instructions

OPI GelColor

A 100% gel formula allowing up to 14+ days of wear without chipping, peeling or losing its shine. Conveniently cures in both LED and UV lamps.

Application:

Step 1: Meticulous Nail Prep - ensuring to push the cuticle from the nail plate and remove all surface contaminants with a cleanser.
Step 2: GelColor by OPI Base Coat Application - ensure to shake the bottle to mix and remove excess product from the brush before application. Apply the base coat to the nail plate and ensure to cap the free edge. Cure for 10 sec/LED light or 1 min/UV light.
Step 3: GelColor by OPI Colour Application - ensure to shake bottle vigorously and remove excess product from the brush by wiping it on the bottle's neck. Apply one very thin coat of colour to the nail plate and ensure to cap the free edge. Cure for 30 sec/LED light or 2 min/UV lamp. Repeat step 3 for a second coat.
Step 4: GelColor by OPI Top Coat Application - ensure to shake the bottle to mix and remove excess product from the brush. Apply one very thin coat of top to the nail plate and ensure to cap the free edge. Cure for 30 sec/LED light or 2 min/UV lamp. Remove the tacky/sticky inhibition layer with a lint-free pad soaked with 99% isopropyl alcohol or nail cleanser.
Step 5: Rehydrate - ensure you rehydrate the nail plate and cuticles with a cuticle oil and repeat this twice daily to maintain and promote longer wear.

Removal:

Step 1: Saturate the cotton pad of a remover wrap or foil with an acetone-based remover.
Step 2: Place the pad over the gel and wrap finger. Wait 10-15 mins.
Step 3: Securely grip the finger and apply slight pressure to the fingernail. Using a twisting motion pull the wrap/foil off the finger.
Step 4: Gently push off the remaining gel with an orangewood stick being careful not to scrap the surface layers of the natural nail plate. Remove any product residue with a lint-free pad soaked with remover. If the gel does not come off easily then repeat steps 1-3.
