CND Shellac or OPI GelColor – Which is the Best?

CND Shellac vs OPI GelColor

CND Shellac and GelColor by OPI are one of the top selling 14-day wear nail lacquer brands on the market.

When it Started!

Shellac was the first and only non gel color system which was launched in September of 2010, that started the 14+ day nail color wearing trend!

GelColor launched a year later on October 2011 with a gel formula that gave similar wear and removal effect like Shellac.

How Long Does CND Shellac & OPI GelColor Last?

Both formulations last at least 14 days with proper application done by professionals (aka our technicians! 🙂 )

CND Shellac vs OPI GelColor Color Selections

When it comes to color selections, CND Shellac has just over 80+ of beautiful shades. While GelColor the later comer has well over 140+ of fashionable shades which gives them an edge lead when it comes to color selections.

CND Shellac vs OPI GelColor Curing Speed

When it comes to curing speed and how well it cured, that depend on which brand and which lamp. If you were using a LED lamp GelColor would have an edge over Shellac in speed and how well it cured the coating. But if it was in a UV lamp they both will cure at pretty much the same speed but Shellac would have an edge as it’s formula will cure better then GelColor’s formula.
