OPI Nail Lacquer
Have you ever wondered what nail lacquer is and how it differs from regular nail polish? While the two products are very similar, nail lacquer is made with a special formula that applies differently. OPI Nail Lacquer is the original formula you already know and love -- this tried-and-true system combines high quality and fashion-forward shades with witty and iconic names making it one of the ultimate DIY nail systems.
What is the difference between nail lacquer and nail polish?
Technically speaking, all modern nail “polish” is a form of lacquer, and the term "nail polish" is a misnomer and a holdover from the days when nail coloring had to be rubbed onto the nail with abrasives—thus “polishing” as well as tinting the nail. 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.
If you’re looking to try nail lacquer for yourself, OPI Nail Lacquer is a fast-drying formula that provides up to 7 days of wear. Explore OPI’s extensive collection of nail lacquers and nail polishes to find the perfect shades for your moods.
