This new multitasking, three-in-one hard gel system features the ideal viscosity to allow for building, overlaying and sculpting, while delivering strength, durability and brilliant high-shine.

The new Diamond Gel system is available in five iconic OPI shades, including Bubble Bath, Put it in Neutral and Funny Bunny, as well as a clear gel for creating transparent extensions, a base for nail art, or for encapsulating glitter or embellishments.

The mix of iconic shades make it possible to colour match to any skin tone or act as a base for any of the OPI Gel Color, Infinite Shine, Nail Lacquer, or Nature strong systems.

OPI Diamond Gel should be cured using an OPI Gel Lamp such as the Star Light. The OPI Star Light Gel Lamp provides uniform light output and mirrored interior for even curing across all five fingers and toes and was ergonomically designed and tested in collaboration with nail pros around the world.
