Who is Behind OPI?

Did you know OPI is a family-owned company? The fun names for the original OPI colors were created while sitting around the family kitchen table.

George Schaeffer, president and CEO of OPI, who immigrated to the U.S. as a child from post-World War II Eastern Europe, founded the company in 1981. His mission was to limit sales of the OPI product only to beauty professionals. OPI was the first nail color company to put batch numbers, instructions and ingredients on all of the OPI products.
