OPI Gelcolor – The Two Week Manicure

I am biased about OPI products.  I started using them when I was in cosmetology school becoming a nail technician.  The rich polish colors, the way Avoplex cuticle oil kept my hangnails away.  Those slick, modern ads in Nail Pro Magazine.   I loved their marketing and the quality of every product I tried.  That adoration continues and grows as the company offers new, innovative products today.

Last week I decided to try their latest offering Gelcolor.  My great experience with Axxium nails last summer led me back to Orchid Nails in Silver Spring, MD.  The staff is professional and the salon is hygienic.  They have reasonable prices and  Sunday hours.  They did my Axxium nails last summer and so thought I would see how the Gelcolor compares.

Color: Pink Flamenco – which I also got on my toes.  Looking forward to keeping this beautiful, bold color for two weeks or so.

Getting the Manicure: The application was faster.  It goes on like polish so my nail tech – Tina was able to work quickly.  She gave me two base coats and two color coats.  It’s thin and smooth.  Barely any flaws.

Here’s a pic from Day One, Week One:

I’ll post an update later this week to let you know how the nails are wearing.
