Hi guys!  Today I have some of OPI’s Infinite Shine polishes to show you!

“Introducing the next revolution in nail lacquer. Imagine color that requires no touch ups all week. Fall in love with intense, gel-like shine that lasts until you take it off. The Infinite Shine system is available now at professional salons.”   – OPI

I was intrigued by these and was very excited to try them.  Since I change my nails often to swatch different colors for the blog, I can’t wear gel or shellac and frankly, I HATE the removal process.  When I do wear polish for a while, if I’m on vacation or I don’t have time to change my polish for whatever reason during the week, I yearn for something that will last.  Every brand of regular polish I’ve tried lasts about 2 days on me.  3 days if I’m lucky and 1 if I’m not.  I really don’t notice the difference in staying power between brands (I think it just boils down to body chemistry.)  So the idea that a polish would last 7 – 10 days, and have the high shine of a gel manicure was exciting for me.  So much so that I needed to do a wear test and see if the claims were true.  Stay tuned until the end to see how the wear test went.

Withstand The Test Of Thyme” is a seafoam green creme.  2 coats.

Set In Stone” is a sophisticated taupe creme.  2 coats.

Raisin’ The Bar” is a gorgeously creamy oxblood creme.  In bright lights it actually looks more like a blue-toned red creme.  It was making me feel like I was crazy because the difference from bright and dim lighting is so drastic.  2 coats.

These all dry a touch darker than they are in the bottle with the exception of “Raisin’ The Bar”.  The formula was excellent!  Thicker than OPI’s usual formula but in a good way.  I actually prefer it to the original OPI formula (which I love so that’s saying a lot!)  It makes for controlling the polish a little easier.  I also love the variety of colors in the Infinite Shades line.  There is a total of 30 colors so far, so there is something for everyone.

So how about my wear test?  I wore “Withstand The Test of Thyme” over a 6 day period.  I used the primer and top coat that you are supposed to wear with it.  As far as I know, you probably won’t get the same results using a regular base and top coat.  During the 6 days I wore it, I was particularly hard on my nails and hands.  I washed dishes numerous times, I played with my nephew, I typed… A LOT, I made cupcakes, cleaned the entire house, did laundry and I even removed polish from a couple of my mom’s nails before remembering that it would probably mess up my wear test!  It was a busy week for me.  And after all that… this is how it looked after 6 days:

Only slight tip wear, a few small chips, the shine was a little bit dull but in person, you really couldn’t tell very much and obviously my nails were feeling neglected because I wasn’t moisturizing but not too shabby, amirite?!

OPI polishes can be purchased at professional salons including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, Ulta.com and Ulta as well as a lot of other retailers and online. Don’t forget to follow OPI on Facebook for all the OPI news!
