Welcome to OPI

OPI History

A family-owned company committed to the highest quality products and to our customers’ well-being, OPI has long been a leader in the community and within the Professional Beauty Industry. Quite simply, we are dedicated to excellence.

OPI was founded in 1981 by President & CEO George Schaeffer, who immigrated to the U.S. as a child from post-World War II Eastern Europe. OPI continues to be family-owned, with Schaeffer at the helm, and has grown to become the world leader in professional nail care.
With this position comes responsibility, and OPI has always been committed to providing our customers with the finest quality in products and services.

From its inception, OPI broke through nail industry barriers. Schaeffer was one of the first in the nail industry to focus on and limit sales of product to and through beauty professionals only, and who realized the importance of education in both the sale and use of the product. From the very beginning, OPI has shown its commitment to quality by putting batch numbers, instructions and ingredients on all of the products it sells. OPI has a dedicated team of scientists who ensure product quality and safety, and bring the latest technology and advances to its product offerings.
OPI also takes a lead within the Professional Beauty Industry in raising the standards by which the industry operates. OPI is active in numerous industry associations whose aim is to ensure that consumer safety is always preserved, through products and services which are developed to meet and exceed safety standards. The company works closely with federal, state, local, and international agencies and scientists for the same purpose.

In addition to its commitment to customer service and safety, OPI is committed to the safety of its own employees. Work-safety seminars are held at the company’s headquarters several times each year, and employees are urged to make safety a priority.

Probably more than any other professional nail care product it produces, OPI is renowned globally for its Nail Lacquers – a brilliant, chip-resistant, professional formula available in over 200 fashion-forward colors. With clever names that customers look forward to with each new Collection, OPI Nail Lacquers are beloved around the world, and trusted by professionals. Neither OPI Nail Lacquers nor any other OPI product or service is subject to animal testing.

Schaeffer is well-known for his philanthropy and his dedication to giving something back to the community. The Schaeffer Family Foundation, established by Schaeffer and his family, has donated millions of dollars to multiple charities, with an emphasis on those which support health-related causes and children’s education.

In addition to helping those in need across the U.S. and around the world (most recently, a matching-funds donation of over $350,000 to the American Red Cross to help with recovery after Hurricane Katrina), the Foundation donates to the most local of causes, including a community health clinic in North Hollywood for those without health insurance. The Schaeffer Family Foundation also awards OPI employees’ children with computers.

OPI continues to be unrelenting in the fight against diversion of Professional Beauty products, spending millions of dollars in an effort to protect consumers from unwittingly purchasing tainted, unsafe product, and to help the Professional Beauty Industry maintain its high standards of quality. 

OPI’s reputation is built on its commitment to quality, safety, innovation and excellence – a commitment it honors with every product, every day.

My Experience with OPI:
Oh yes if you are in having affair with nail paint than you guys must have to need to keep OPI in your goody bag. OPI is not the matter of love it’s the really matter of quality when you try to use it you may feel that you are really using a worth buying products.

OPI Dynamic Duo (Special Edition)
Let me discuss first about their Dynamic Duo it’s a combination of Nail lacquer and lip gloss.  The Nail lacquer name is “Meep-Meep-Meep” (3M means 3Meep actually ;) it’s very bright maroon color having hint of glitter which make this more glamorous.  I am loving this color just because the bright colors are INN in this summer. The texture is very smooth and creamy only one coat is enough to fulfill your fashion crave J I love its brush as its quite wider, only two strokes are enough to paint your nail easily. 

Its coordinating with one lip Gloss;  its containing double applicator, one side is having a brush and the other one is sponge.  So this is best for those who are particular about applicator, whatever you want you have two options either to use brush side or the sponge one, choice is yours.  I have no issue so both are fine with me J Texture is thick and color is quite natural easily make your lips shimmery and glossy.  Its easy to carry in your goody bag.  I just found one flaw on it that the wands are very small, but I think this is best for college girls.  Yes one more thing when you open it try to open this gloss from one side not from both side otherwise the gloss will not allow you to enter both wands in the gloss bottle, as gloss will come out  :O quite strange but I faced it

OPI Correct & Clean up
(Refillable Corrector Pen)
The easy way to clean Nail Lacquer off cuticles for great-looking nails!  Includes pen plus one replacement tip.

·         *  Dab along cuticles to remove traces of Nail Lacquer.
·        *    Wipe tip on Tissue to clean. Refill pen by pulling tip out and refill through tip hole with an OPI Polish remover.

This is the best product for those who are not expert for applying nail polish you don’t worry just apply the nail paint and this lovely magical product may hide your all flaws and cleanup your nails 

Blue Shatter by OPI
This is the most amazing innovation in nail paint.  If you are again nail paint lover and you don’t have much time to dress your nails with amazing nail art you just need to pick any Shatter color for best result you just apply any base coat and apply Shatter by OPI on it and now you are ready to ROCK the party.   If you want to make your nail color more vibrant and stay more on your nail than you need to apply OPI TOP coat. It gives shines and life to your color.  <3
