OPI is queen of the crop when it comes to nail polish, and for good reason. The first OPI polish collection launched in 1989, a 30 shade assortment that became a fast favorite among professional nail artists and at-home beauty aficionados. Today, the brand continues to reign supreme, producing over 55 million bottles of polish every single year. There are always hundreds of OPI nail colors available, meaning you can achieve any look, mood, or style you’re going for, any time and every time.
Our love for OPI nail lacquer goes beyond just an appreciate for the brand’s longstanding history and shining reputation. Time after time, OPI has embraced creativity and brought new ideas, technologies, and standards to the beauty industry, setting the bar just a little bit higher for everyone else.
Right now, we’re especially digging two of OPI’s most recent collections: Infinite Shine and the new spring/summer 2018 Lisbon collection. Both encapsulate OPI’s commitment to not just quality polish but going bigger and bolder than the competition. And we can’t get enough of it. Here are three big reasons why we love them (and why you should too!).
1. Powerful, long-lasting wear. OPI gel polishes are designed to last. The OPI Infinite Shine collection is a professional three-step lacquer system that makes it as easy to apply a long-wear polish in your home as it is to get it done at a salon. The polishes in the OPI Infinite Shine collection (there are more than 150 of them) last for up to 11 days and don’t require light to cure. Just apply the primer, paint on the color of your choice, and cover it up with the glossy top coat. And voila! Almost two weeks of chip-free, ultra-shiny polish.
2. Shades on shades on shades. We’ve mentioned it already, but you really can’t talk about why OPI is so great without stressing just how many colorful polish options they have. A lot of polish companies skimp on their color options or make certain polishes available only in one formula. But OPI knows that people who love beauty also love options, and they make their many shades available in a variety of styles. The Lisbon Collection alone, which features 12 stunning hues, is available in Infinite Shine, gel, and regular nail lacquer.
3. Global inspirations. OPI’s new spring/summer 2018 Lisbon Collection is inspired by the capital of Portugal, also called the city of seven hills. It’s not just the shade names that are inspired by the city, but the shades themselves (and their associated hashtags), which are based on Lisbon’s food, art, fashion, and general vibrancy. Lisbon is known for its charm and eclectic street style, and OPI perfectly captures these nuances in their collection. It’s part of the brand’s more general dedication to not just taking inspiration from around the world, but truly celebrating the beauty and culture of unique locales.
