are delightful. Gorgeous reds, shimmery silvers, and for the first time since I can remember, a lovely Tiffany inspired blue…So great to see a joyful, rich, lighter color for the holiday.
Well, now it is available in Infinite Shine from OPI. Infinite Shine is a extended wear lacquer that has the high gloss finish similar to gel color but removes with regular polish remover. The best of both worlds!!!
The Holiday packaging is spot on as well. Here, you get the color as well as the base and top coats needed to get the longevity and shine from the color.
This color is called “I believe in Manicures” and it really is one of the prettiest holiday colors I have seen in a long time.
Available at authorized retailers and fine salons everywhere.
The new fall colors from OPI in their Infinite Shine collection are out in stores now.
These are the perfect colors to transition from summer to the cooler winter nights, no matter your skin tone.
From pretty nudes to refreshing pinks and berry colors as well as warm coffee and rich burgundies, this collection has it all for the fall season.
Infinite Shine is a hybrid gel like polish that you apply like regular nail polish and remove like regular polish. What’s the difference? The special base and top coats give these the wear-ability and super glossy shine of gel polish. The colors last up to 10 days and comes off like a dream.
So here are your colors!
My favorite of these six is #2, Glow the Extra Mile. It actually has tiny tiny flecks of pink in it. Now any one who knows me knows I am not a pink girl so it’s shocking that I like this one!
I am also very happy to see some sparkle and glitter in the Infinite Shine collection as most of them are lovely creams. But, hey, a girl needs a little sparkle now and then!
And my favorite in these six is, #9 Endless Purple Pursuit.
All of the colors have very good coverage on the first coat. As you can see.
One coat Infinite Shine!
Like I said, there is a shade in this collection for any one. Which is YOUR favorite?
Available at authorized distributors, and retail locations near you such as Macy’s & Ulta.
Happy Monday! Here is a quick and very pretty step by step for nail art using OPI’s Infinite Shine. I am showing you two different base colors but this would work with either quite nicely!
Step 1-apply Infinite Shine PRIME and allow to dry. Then two coats of your color of choice. Here is featured on the left, “It never Ends” and on the right is “Staying in Neutral”. Of note, please let the polish dry for a good two minutes in between coats.
Step 2-here, I alternated the colors in different shapes on each nail. Allow them to dry well before proceeding to the next step.
Step 3-using your favorite striping brush, and “Raisin’ the Bar” outline the color to form a nice thin border. Allow to dry well and apply Infinite Shine GLOSS.
Wait a good two minutes before you do anything. We are so used to having instantly cured gel nails that we have to remember to give your Infinite Shine a chance to cure all the way through.
Also, remember that Infinite Shine cures using ambient light. So make sure you are in well light area for speedy drying times.
Here is a pic of my nails using the lighter color as a base.
I received this amazing kit from Preen.Me in the mail yesterday. As part of the #PreenMeVIP program.
Well I couldn’t wait to start playing with the amazing color selection that came in it!
Well for some reason, I decided that since this is a gel like lacquer, maybe I would have better luck doing water marbling with it than I do with regular polish! (I find that the polish dries out too quick for me-I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but it is not something I excel at!!!)
Infinite Shine came with instructions that you use the Infinite Shine PRIMER, then 2 coats of LACQUER, (wait 2 minutes between color coats), and finish with GLOSS.
Since I was doing water marbling and it took a little while to add all the drops of alternating color to the water, I didn’t worry too much about waiting the two minutes.
I applied a thin coat of cuticle oil around my nail to aid in removal of the excess lacquer on my skin. (If you have ever water marbled, you know what I mean!)
I really like the way that this turned out! And I believe that my original thought was correct. Because it is not like regular lacquer, I had greater success in manipulating the Infinite Shine while it was in the water. I also found that it seemed to “suck right down” to the PRIMER base coat!
Cleaning up around the cuticles also seemed easier. I am not sure if it is because I put cuticle oil around or if the chemical make up of the product is just easier to clean.

Pictured here is before I added some finishing touches using Infinite Shine as a “art supply”. I added some dots to the areas that seemed like they could use a little something something!

Now, included in the instructions were specifics about using Infinite Shine on artificial enhancements like I wear. They state to use a 100/180 grit file, dust, cleanse and then proceed as directed for natural nails. I must have been in a rush (like usual!) and only used the 100 grit side because after I let the lacquer dry and applied the GLOSS top coat, it dried to a bit of a bumpy surface.

So I added a second one and it turned out fine. So, please remember if you are using Infinite Shine on acrylics, make sure you buff them with the 180 grit side before proceeding with the application.
