A free topcoat? Not sure that would be much good to me, full bottles of OPI polish are pretty hard to shift these days. Like I said before, the mini bottles are really easy to retail but so hard to get hold of. If OPI produced a pack containing one mini bottle of polish for every GelColor available, I would buy three packs immediately

Come on OPI, listen to your customers - no other gel polish company produce a matching polish range in a mini/affordable size. I can't sell an 11.50 polish as a "just in case" product and at the same time tell the client that their GelColor will last until their next appointment. But a 5 mini bottle will sell easily.

Since most of us have seen a real decline in polish sales since the advent of gel polish, surely OPI themselves have been hit hard by this, a full mini range would boost their sales to salons.

Come on OPI, more classic range GelColors and matching mini polish bottles.. pretty please.

I still retail a lot of polish but not for 11.50. But a complimentary top coat will increase sales!

Agree with above though, pretty please bring out minis to match gelcolor!!!!

I'm a GelColor user & lover too.

I think that matching mini polishes would be a great idea too, would sell much easier.

I have to say, I'm always disappointed with the new colour collections. They are always very similar to what is already out. I don't use Gelish but am loving the 'All about the glow' collection. I wish OPI would bring out some more 'daring' colours, some pastles and neons!

Anyone know yet which of the San Francisco collection will be made in GelColor? Also are there any new GelColors from the classics range on the horizon?

I don't know but I know there will only be 6 from the San Fran I have my hopes for the 6 but I reckon it may be near the end of the month or September maybe? I'm looking forward to them though for some of my older clients

So this is apparently the list of the GelColor that will be available from the San Francisco Collection:

A Piers to be Tan
Dining al Frisco
Peace, Love, and OPI
Keeping Suzy at Bay
I Knead Sour Dough

This is the mini bottle collection:

First Date at the Golden Gate
Muir Muir on the Wall
In the Cable Car-Pool Lane
Peace & Love & OPI



Peace & Love is a really lush colour.

Bit disappointed about all the blues in the gel collection but glad they have the tan colour, peace and love, and muir muir. I'm still waiting for my San Fran collection to be delivered so may change my mind when I swatch them!

Happy the lighter blue is going to be in gel, but there are so many darker blues why make another?? I wish they were doing haven't the foggiest and the shimmery pink.

Also think its stupid to not match the minis with the gelcolor.

Yeah I know what you mean. I'm still trying to get the euro centrale gelcolors if I'm honest. And the mini collection for that but they're all sold out now

Hi all,

I just saw a few reactions about the Gelcolor.

I bought the Skyfall Gelcolor collection, but it didn't Go very well in my salon...the customers liked the Germany collection better.
If someone is still interested in these colors please let me know via PM. They are almost as good as new....

Also I still have 2 minipacks with nailpolish from the euro collection That are for sale...please send me a PM if you're interested..
Please note: I'm living in the Netherlands, so most likely there Will be shipping costs.

And I'm also very curious which Gelcolors are coming out Soon!
