What is it?
OPI Regular Formula Start-to-Finish - A base coat, top coat and natural nail strengthener in one high performance formula. Formaldehyde-free.
What makes it special?
  • One high performance product - 3 uses in one
  • Formaldehyde-free formula
Alcohol Denatured (SD Alcohol-40B), Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Heptane, Nitrocellulose, Tosylamide/Epoxy Resin, Isopropyl Alcohol, Polyvinyl Butyral, Triphenyl Phosphate, Trimethyl Pentanyl Diisobutyrate, Camphor, Benzophenone-1, Glyoxal, Hydrolyzed Whole Wheat Protein, CI 60725 (D&C Violet #2)

As a Base Coat:

Start-to-Finish can be applied before nail lacquer to prevent staining and to strengthen the natural nail. It also provides a smooth base for the application of OPI Nail Lacquer.


As a Top Coat:

Start-to-Finish is a quick drying top coat that produces a high gloss shine.


As a Nail Strengthener:

Start-to-Finish bonds nail protein fibers, a process which hardens nails and prevents moisture loss. The result - stronger, more flexible nails.


1. To apply, begin at the center of the nail, approximately 1/32" from the cuticle. Let the bristles fan out for maximum coverage. With one smooth stroke, brush out to the free edge.

2. Apply to each side of the initial brush stroke, overlapping slightly.

3. For maximum results, apply one coat every day.

Use as a base coat before polishing your natural nails; use as a top coat after you've finished polishing your nails or as a nail strengthener.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OPI start to finish This start from finish is very good. Not able to get my nails done I tried this. My nails were soft and peeled. They are really improving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for regular polish As always, OPI products are one of the best! No peeling or chipping.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me Using this alone as directed, it was thin, it peeled off after one day and my nails felt more brittle than they did before using it. I did not use it with color, only as directed alone. Not sure why it was so bad. I also bought fingerpaints "hard as steel" it also was pretty bad (way more inexpensive, but bad too) and peeled off. Maybe I will try them with nail color and see if it works better or maybe trying more than 2 coats at a time. Anyway, it didn't work as directed. I'm disapppointed this was about $14 wasted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this about a month ago and am quite disappointed with it. I find whenever I used it, whether as a base coat or top coat, my nails chip and almost instantly (definitely within 24hrs). I like the product as a strengthener however definitely would not recommend it as a base/top coat. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! Great product and has helped my nails grow. However, when the product gets older over the product thickens in the bottle and will end up forming bubbles if you use it. Therefore you've got to throw it out after 3-4 months use and start with a fresh bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great!!! I highly recommend this product. I had a manicure and this product was applied to my nails. If you follow the directions which are pretty simple, one coat a day for a week, remove and start again,it works great. My nails are longer, stronger, no splitting or cracking.

Ok so does it help with nail growth and hardiness? Cause you guys don’t seem to know how to read directions it says to reapply daily, it is not posed to last for two freaking days!!!

It does help with nail growth and hardiness.  My manicure last 2-3 weeks and I wash my hands quite a bit.  Great product!
