New from OPI – Pure Lacquer Nail Apps (Review w/ Photos)

It took no time at all for me to decide that OPI’s new Pure Lacquer Nail Apps are AWESOME. The precut nail strips made of 100% real nail lacquer – “providing a high-gloss finish, long-lasting wear and zero dry time.”

They are truly very easy to apply, allowing anyone to create impressively professional looking nail art at home, in just a few minutes. According to OPI,

For best results, this product should not be finished with top coat. Simply remove with an acetone polish remover like OPI Expert Touch Lacquer Remover before trying a new design.


Each pack contains 16 strips of various sizes, allowing you to match the precut strips to each nail. I prefer to sport nail art only on my ring fingers (just a personal preference), so one pack will go a long way for me.

The affordable price, ease of application, and flawless results make the OPI nail apps a true winner in my book.

OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps are available at, ULTA Beauty, and various professional salons for the suggested retail price of $11.95.

    How long will this application last? Is it as durable as the Gel product?

      So, if you do it at home, it will probably last as long as any DIY manicure, or maybe a bit longer (if applied according to the directions). But, if you get it done at a salon, and they top it with the GelColor by OPI top coat, and it’s cured with a UV/LED light, it should last as long as a gel mani should last (around 14 days).

      OPI notes that if you are doing it at home, it is best to NOT use a top coat.

      I’ve been very pleased with the product so far – especially compared against other brands I’ve tried (which were VERY difficult to apply, with far from flawless results). The OPI nail apps are definitely worth trying!
