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.
Two coats and I have a true white color. I love it!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this white! I was looking for a white that wasn’t chalk white and this was it. It’s like the perfect off-white, and it doesn’t have a streaky consistency. This has become one of faves!

Suzi Chases Portu-geese is an interesting shade of off-white creme polish from OPI's new Lisbon collection. Unfortunately this is the first one from this collection I didn't have a brilliant experience with. Firstly, the colour is quite pretty in the bottle, it looks to be off-white with a slight blue-ish cast. However, on my nails it simply looked to be a straight white creme. Now, this may be due to my skin tone and I believe that the blue cast may be more noticeable on cooler skintones. However, this was still disappointing to me. It is a nice white but it wasn't what I was expecting or hoping for. Secondly I had issues with the formula. My bottle's formula was quite thick and somewhat tricky to work with. It took a long time to dry between coats and was slow to self level. I needed two coats and a lot of patience to work with this polish. I believe that adding some thinner will help with the formula and application issues however, I don't believe that you should need to add thinner to a brand new bottle of $20AUD nail polish straight away upon opening it. As such, I do not rate this particular shade highly.
OPI Suzi Chases Portugeese is available in the following product types:
