OPI announced its newest product, Repair Mode bond-building nail serum with Ulti-Plex Technology to restore natural nails to their optimal condition. The company's patented Ulti-Plex Technology biomimics the protein structure of the natural nail to repair nails. When used twice a day for six days, OPI says that nails are restored with 99% keratin repair. The serum’s active ingredients penetrate the nail to build new bonds and provide about 94% protection from damage to keratin protein. Repair Mode can also be worn under Nail Lacquer or GelColor with two coats.
“Nail damage happens through daily activities like washing our hands, cleaning, and showering, which break down keratin bonds. Treating nail damage is one of the biggest consumer needs with the lowest product satisfaction. Our goal was to revolutionize nail care for weak and damaged nails and to combat everyday damage, by developing a technology that could repair broken bonds from inside the nail. Similar to how Plex products have revolutionized hair care, Repair Mode is a breakthrough for the nail treatment category."
— Sarah Fairneny, vice president, OPI Research & Development
OPI’s Nail Envy Strengthener is also getting an upgrade with a new vegan formula and six new colors. With Tri-Flex Technology, polymer coats the nail surface creating a liquid shield that reinforces the nail with layer-building strength. According to OPI, Nail Envy provides advanced strengthening for 95% stronger nails in about one week. The formula also includes biotin, vitamins A, C, E, and calcium to nourish nails. Nail Envy strengthens and protects nails against breaking, chipping, peeling, and splitting.
Nail Envy Color includes a range of eight shades suitable for all skin tones. Six new colors and two existing shades, Alpine Snow (white) and Big Apple Red (red), and four new exclusive Nail Envy hues, with names that evoke strength, Powerful Pink (shimmer pink), Tough Luv (dark red), All Night Strong (dark blue), and Double Nude-y (neutral) join the existing two Nail Envy colors Pink to Envy (rose tint) and Bubble Bath (pink).
Together Repair Mode and Nail Envy complete the new OPI treatment range. Repair Mode and Nail Envy are 9-free, vegan formulas with no animal-derived ingredients or by-products, and both are clinically tested and developed by nail scientists. Repair Mode is recommended for damaged nails to help maintain nails in optimal condition. It should be applied twice daily, once in the morning and once at night for six days. Nail Envy is suggested for all nail types, including weak, thin, soft, and cracked nails. To use, apply once per day for six days, with two coats on nails for the first application and one coat on nails for the following five days. To maintain strength and protection, use Repair Mode first to repair nails and then apply Nail Envy.
