Love it! Better than the Salon!

published

I was a bit hesitant at first, but bought the gel kit on sale at Priceline and was blown away by the quality and how easy it was. I followed the steps and no joke my nails lasted over 3 weeks. The quality of the gel is amazing, Ive had gel at the salon and I can say Opallac is just as good of not better. And less harsh on the nails too. I love my kit, cant live without it. I must say though, it can take a few times to get the application perfect.

Good product but will no longer shop with Opallac

published

Opallac deliver their online orders with Fastway. Fastway are incompetent and did not safely deliver parcels. I contacted Opallac with details of my order being missing and they are unwilling to help saying "it's out of our hands". Unfortunately the customer service experience was terrible, I am out of pocket $100, and will no longer shop Opallac.

Excellent Quality... Love it!

published

Opallac has honestly exceeded all my expectations. The quality of the polish is amazing and there is absolutely no difference between the home gel pack and going to the salon. I love my kit, I love the colours and most of all I love that I have saved so much money from expensive salon shellac :) I MUST say practice makes perfect, but there is no turning back. 10/10 from me.

Black paint from bottle flakes into polish

published

At first I loved Opallac. The polish is pretty good quality and lasts a while. However after spending heaps of money (I have pretty much every shade in the Opallac range), I noticed that the black paint around the neck of the bottle flakes into the bottle and leaves black flecks all over your nails! This is disappointing because once it flakes into the polish, it can't be taken out and the polish looks terrible! My bottles are all almost full because the paint flaked soon after buying. Definitely not buying Opallac anymore, at least not until they change their bottles to something other than painted glass!

Great product - saves me so much money!

Love this product

published

I love opallac gel polish
Bought the starter kit and as long as you follow the instructions and apply thin coats it lasts for at least a week, I work in a kitchen constantly doing dishes and it had no effect on my nails! Amazing product and the customer service is excellent too

Really bad product

published

This product is very poor. It begins to peel on the sides after a day and then the rest peels away within the next few days. It is almost rubbery, not hard and shiny like you would get with gel polish at a nail salon.

Poor customer service and product not that good

published

Gel powder lasted a week and half then started chipping.
Also customer service was disgusting and I will NEVER shop again with them. I've been chasing up a product that I didn't receive for over 5 weeks now and still don't have it.

Nailed it

published

I love this brand and the colours are really exciting! I hope they add many more, especially shimmers/glitters or the colour change. I'd also love to see a bigger range of nudes, im quickly building an impressive set with only a few more of the polishes to buy. When i consider how much i was spending on an infill every few weeks just to see what i can achieve at home, im happy to pay the price of the polishes (especially when they do great sales so often!)


I love this product!

published

I've been using
Opallac for about six months and just love it! Not only is it gorgeous polish, it lasts right up until I want a change or my nails grow too long. This means 3-4 weeks. I've never had it chip or peel off. I always clean my nails with the 2 in 1 before applying the base coat to make sure there's no oil. My nails are still strong and healthy and I've not had any yellowing of my natural nails. I recommend people to watch the videos on the website before beginning, which would give a top result and there'd be no need for negative reviews. It's not the product but the users' lack of preparation and understanding that causes problems. I'd recommend Opallac to all - 100%.

Absolutely love it!!

published

My daughter gave me an Opellac kit for mothers day and I love it! Stays on 3 to 4 weeks and I am a mum of 3 kids with my hands constantly in and out of water. Trick is to make sure you cover the tips of nails with clear top coat opallac to completely seal & make it last longer. This prevents water from getting under the colour & lifting. Opallac comes off easy & less damage to my nails than previous salon manicures. Gorgeous colours too. Definitely recommend to everyone. Thank you!

Absolutley love it.

published

I brought the kit and it came with 3 nail colours (which I love) and a top and base coat. the first go wasn't too good but learnt from my mistakes, which I will share with you. Don't apply to thick a coat. like the instructions say just a thin coat, so I found the nail polish all pooled in my cuticles. Second attempt was great and they look salon perfect. So no hesitation to recommend giving it a go and for the cost of the kit and polishes was a bargain

Lasted 2 weeks, loved it

published

I would recommend to anyone using this, DONT skim over the instructions, I did that the first time and it didn't turn out as good. Then when I followed the instruction step by step it worked a treat, it was shiny, colour pigment was fantastic and it actually lasted 2 weeks + for me. I would say its just as good as a salon shellac. Highly recommend it.

Using Nail Gel Correctly

published

Sticky mess

published

The base coat wouldn't cure after 5mins under the lamp and I had to buy the remover to remove the sticky mess, the colour coat was perfect and dried in about a 3mins and the top coat was again a sticky mess but if you use the nail polish remover to take it off it's fine. I didn't buy the kit so $90 for the base, colour, top coat, remover and pads was the same price as having them done by a professional x3 times and that's without the cost of the lamp. Disappointed but maybe I expected too much from the product for the price.

You have to spend $60 just for the 3 polishes but the remover is a must if you don't want that sticky gunk all over you.


Easy long lasting

published

My go to for at home gel!

Love it, takes a couple of practise runs but that's because i was shocking at applying) Mine manages to last for 3 weeks, and their new colours are gorgeous!

P.s - to the woman who states it didn't dry, that's because you need to cure it with a lamp. It's a UV GEL polish. Which it clearly states.


Instant drying???

published

If you are going to advertise instant drying time then why 1 hour later when I check it and it comes off on my finger! I had to redo numerous times to do touch ups. Never again will I spend this amount of money on a new nail polish because it was a shade I liked and the boxed advertising appealed to me. From here on in I will be sticking to Quickin GO.

Can you use the Opallac drying machine with normal nail polish or does it only dry gel nail polish?

I just brought the red two tone nail polish. But it’s not two tone it either goes a dark maroon if fingers are cold or a bright red if they are hot ,just washing them changes the color. The only thing I did differently was I applied 3 coats any advice for me please , I did want to buy the pink /purple one but I’m not quite sure now.

Yes I think the nail polish responds to heat/cold and I love this. When my hands are warm the nail bed is one colour and the tips usually lighter. A bit like ombre. I have 4 different colours now.


Cheust

Cheustasked

I was wondering what this product does to your nails after it has been removed? My nails are always terribly brittle and thin after removing gel polish that's been done at a salon and it always takes weeks for them to recover. Has anyone experienced this using the Opallac gel polish?

If you remove it correctly by soaking it there's no reason it should damage your nails, maybe in the salons they just buffed away at the natural nail to much before application
