How do I use OPI Gelcolor polish?
The Gelcolor application process is very similar to the other soak off gel polishes... This is how you do it:
Step 1. Prepare the nail by using an orangewood stick to push the cuticles back for a clean application of gel
Step 2. Shape your nails to your style with a natural nail filer (150 grit or higher)
Step 3. Prepare the natural nail by gently removing the shine using a buffer... lightly buff it to rough up the nail beds
Step 4. Remove the oils and dust on your nail by using nail cleanser
OPI Gelcolor Application
Step 5. (Roll the gelcolor bottle in your hands to mix the contents) Apply a thin even layer of Gelcolor Base Coat onto your nail.
Step 6. Place your hand in an LED Lamp and cure for 10 seconds or UV Lamp and cure for 1 minute. The top coat will remain tacky/sticky, but this is normal of any soak off gel polish.
Step 7. (Roll the Gelcolor bottle in your hands to mix the contents) Apply a thin even layer of Gelcolor Color coat to your nail. Don't forget to cap the nail edges to create a seal. Make sure you remove any Gelcolor from the skin prior to curing.
Step 8. Place your hand in an LED Lamp and cure for 20 seconds or UV Lamp and cure for 2 minute.
Step 9. Apply a second coat of Gelcolor color to the nail.
Step 10. Place your hand in an LED Lamp and cure for 20 seconds or UV Lamp and cure for 2 minute.
Step 11. Apply a thin even layer of Gelcolor Top Coat onto your nail. The top coat creates a high shine while protecting the gel layers below it from damage. Don't froget to cap the nail edges to create a seal.
Step 12. Place your hand in an LED Lamp and cure for 20 seconds or UV Lamp and cure for 2 minute.
Step 13. Use a liberal amount of alcohol (99%) or gel cleanser with a lint free pad to remove the tacky/sticky residue from your nail.

Gosh, this is one gorgeous shade of nail polish. It is a bright hot pink with cool undertones and a cream ginish it is definitely a Barbie pink shade. It is very fun and girly and makes an excellent pedicure shade too. I think it would suit most skintones, and would look amazing on medium-tan tones in particular. It is so pretty and happy, I got a lot of compliments when I wore it. The formula is very good too, opaque in two coats. It applies easily, with no streaks or bald patches and dries quickly and to a shiny finish. It has good staying power, lasting around 4 days on the nails. I did some have mild tipwear by day 3, but it wasn't too noticeable and I am hard on my hands so I put that down to lifestyle rather than polish formula issues. As a pedicure it lasts for weeks. I would definitely recommend this polish for anyone who loves hot, Barbie pink shades. It's amazing for the summer!
Blue-based pink. It's got so much blue in it that it looks a little dirty on the edges. Maybe this color is really trying to capture the dirtiness of Pink Street. I regret buying this it looks really cute and peppy in the bottle, but in most lighting, I see a grey cast it's really hard to describe. In the sun, it's cute. Maybe it's just my skin tone?
Awesome shade! I really love this one. From OPI's Lisbon Collection for Spring 2018, No Turning Back From Pink Street is a vivid and super bright shade of hot pink/fuchsia with a creme finish. It's an eye-popping blue-toned pink, slightly darker than Essie's Mod Square and lighter than Revlon's Vegas Baby. This kind of pink is my favorite, so this is a welcome addition to my collection.Great OPI formula as well. Opaque in two coats and I got excellent wear out of this polish.Gorgeous polish overall and I'd definitely buy it again!
