I find OPI polish excellent, many clients say their manicure lasts a week, and much longer for a pedicure. OPI axxium gel lacquer will last up to 3 weeks on most and months on the toes.

I have used OPI in the past which is good, but I currently use Bio Sculpture polishes and gels, they have a great range of standard colours and release new colours for each new season.

Definatly agree with the opi users. It lasts so much longer than any other polishes Iv used. Application is important though. Always use a top and base coat and apply thin layers rather than thicker ones.

CND Shellac,is by far the best,it is a 14 day power polish manicure,no chipping or drying time as it cures under a uv lamp and lasts 14 days,and removal takes only 10 minutes.perfect manicure.

SpaRitual Vegan Nail Lacquer, it doesn't contain formaldehyde, toluene (an additive added to the gasoline in race cars) , or DBP's. It's long lasting and has beautiful colors. My clients love it.

I use OPI Lacqure as they have a great brush and a very good range of colour and Axxium Gel for hands and feet.

Opi & Revlon are good classic nail polishes, but it is correct application that helps the varnish look good and last longer. Make sure a base coat is applied under the colour followed by a good top coat which should be topped up very 3 / 4 days.

If we talk classic nail polish (not gel polish) then I love Kinetics Nails. It is little known, but it lasts very well and is very easy to apply. The consistency of this nail polish will allow you to create even coverage with just one coat. Unlike some very well-known brands it is colour-stable and will not change the shade as it dries of fade with a time.

Hello There,

I find its a combination of things that will give a lacquer good coverage & staying power - mainly preparation & maintenance - (wearing gloves when doing house work, applying top coat every 2/3 days etc)... !

I use OPI, China Glaze & Essie & rate them in that order, however thats not to say their the best, their the most popular known & I think when providing nail services, your product needs to reflect your professional needs & current trends.

OPI - Good coverage, nice wide brush makes applying polish easier on wide nails, however can be tricky on shorter nails. Can need up to 3 coats, but wide brush cuts down the applying time. Also dries quickly. Why this brand beats China Glaze is on the nail treatments, nothing beats the Nail Envy range!

China Glaze - Good coverage, good brush size, dries well, cost effective, however lacks on the nail treatments side.

Essie - Poor coverage, you really need to use their base coat otherwise you'll need 2/3 coats dependent on the natural nail color your painting! Also, brush is on the small side so you need to load your brush & take time spreading - overall, can be time consuming when compared to the others!

Food for thought I hope.x
