OPI Sets Guinness World Record for Longest Manicure Bar

By the end of the day, OPI had completed over 500 manicures.

Who doesn't love making history AND getting a free mani? This past weekend, OPI set a Guinness World Record for 'The World's Longest Manicure Bar.' The event was held in Santa Monica from 9am to 5pm, where all were invited to attend and receive a free OPI GelColor manicure to help OPI make history.

To achieve the goal, OPI created a 155 foot long manicure bar sprawled out along Santa Monica's famous 3rd Street Promenade shopping area, just steps from the beach. More than 50 nail technicians were seated along the bar giving event attendees GelColor manicures with OPI's newly launched innovation, ProHealth Top and Base Coat. The exclusive ProHealth Base and Top Coat technology provides healthier looking nails during wear and even after removal. When combined with iconic OPI GelColor, attendees received a flawless GelColor manicure that can be removed scrape-free in as little as seven minutes without the worry of damaging nails.
