OPI Infinite Shine swatches, review (partial collection)

Friday, March 6, 2015

I have six of OPI's Infinite Shine Collection to share with you today.

OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System, offers the rich color, intense shine and lasting wear of gels – without the need for LED-light curing or soak-off removal. There are 30 shades (plus a primer base coat and gloss top coat) to choose from. These gel effect polishes utilize a three-step system to deliver a high-shine classic crème finish for nails that lasts up to 10 days.
Infinite Shine is applied via a three-step system; 
  • First, apply Infinite Shine Primer (Step 1) to prevent staining and increase lacquer durability. 
  • Next, paint two thin, even coats for richly-pigmented, vivid color. 
  • Finally, finish with Infinite Shine Gloss (Step 3), which features a state-of-the-art gel polymer formula that cures in natural light. Product can be removed easily remover; no soaking is required.
Let's take a look at six of the shades. These polishes applied well. The directions say to shake them well. However, I just gave them a good roll instead. I applied Infinite Shine Primer, the Infinite Shine Polish and then the Infinite Gloss. Make sure to wait a couple of minutes before you apply the top coat. On a couple of them I rushed it a bit and retained a bit of the polish color on the top coat brush. These polishes are a lot more glossy than they look in the photos. They really do have an amazing shine.

In Pursuit of Purple is a summery lilac shade. The formula is great. I applied two coats for this swatch.

Maintaining My Sand-ity is a sandy shade of nude. This definitely makes me think of the beach. I can almost feel the warmth of the sand now. I used three coats for this swatch.

No Stopping Me Now is a vibrant orange toned creme polish. I used two coats for this swatch. This color is amazing and is sure to add a pop of color to any ensemble.

Set in Stone is a gorgeous rich deep brown shade that is reminiscent of natural stone. The name on this one intrigues me as my personal saying is "Polish isn't set in stone... which just means we can change it more often." With this polish, you can keep your mani for up to 10 days. I used two coats for this swatch.

She Went On And On And On is a vibrant coral shade. This spirited polish will provide color and attitude. This is two coats.

Tanacious Spirit is a wonderful shade of... well tan. This nude shade is perfect for work or play. This is two coats with a top coat.

These polishes provided great coverage, although I did have to use three coats on a couple of them. One word of caution - if you want to use them for nail art a top coat will smear them.

There are 24 more shades, so you will definitely find a color to fit your mood and style.

Infinite Shine products feature a proprietary formula and each bottle includes OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System are available at professional salons, including Beauty Brands, beautybrands.com, Chatters, Dillard’s, Regis, ULTA and ulta.com for $12.50 ($14.95 CAN).
These polishes were sent to me for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Please note that computer monitors may display colors differently.


  1. Hi...In Pursuit of Purple looks beautiful. I'm curious why you rolled the bottles instead of shaking them? Thank you!

    1. In Pursuit of Purple is a gorgeous shade. I rolled them because when I shook them I got too many bubbles. If you shake them, just let them settle for a couple of minutes.


I may not always have time to respond to your comments. But I read each and every one of them.
