OPI Infinite Shine Swatches Pt 2

42 comments

Hiya guys, how's it going? Yay for the weekend. No idea what I'm going to be doing except for sleeping in a lot, which is always fun in my opinion. But for today I'll be showing you the remaining shades from the OPI Infinite collection sent to me by Preen.Me VIP program with OPI. If you missed out on last weeks review, be sure to check out part one here. With the shades, I'll also be talking briefly about the OPI Infinite Shine Primer base and the Gloss that are recommend for long-term use.


Through the month of April, Preen.Me has partnered up with OPI for the Infinite Shine Challenge. See all the beautiful entries submitted by artists on Instagram by using the hashtag 'InfiniteShine'. You can also find more information on the challenge and about the prizes by visiting Preen.Me on Instagram.

Running with the In-finite Crowd

Running with the In-finite Crowd is a bright pink creme polish. Standard bright pink, it didn't thrill me too much when it comes to the shade. What did blow me away, however, was the exquisite formula. Nice, even consistency that was neither too thick or too thin. Swatched here over the primer base are two thin coats and sealed with the Infinite Shine gloss topcoat.


Unequivocally Crimson

Unequivocally Crimson is a popping cherry red creme polish. As a huge fan of the color red, I definitely give this one my stamp of approval. It's gorgeous and luscious to wear on its own. Best part about it though, it stamps! Great formula and consistency, applied smoothly without any issues. Swatched here over the primer base are two thin coats and sealed with the Infinite Shine gloss topcoat.


We're in the Black

We're in the Black is the classic onyx black creme. There's not much to say about a straight black color, although no collection is complete without one. Most of the time we base our likability on the formula not brand because we use it so frequently. I'm happy to say the formula and consistency are fantastic all around and it applies very smoothly. I can definitely see this polish stamping and marbling well, but it's not something we'd probably want to do considering the price tag. Swatched here over the primer base are two thin coats and sealed with the Infinite Shine gloss topcoat.


Withstands the Test of Thyme

Withstands the Test of Thyme is an aqua green creme polish. Definitely the favorite among all the ones that were sent to me and my pick as must-have. If this doesn't scream Spring I don't know what does. I feel like there might be a few dupes out there, but I personally don't have a dupe for it in my collection. Formula and consistency were spot on just like the others in this half of the review. No issues applying and it's very opaque in a single layer. Swatched here over the primer base are two thin coats and sealed with the Infinite Shine gloss topcoat.


Never Give Up

Never Give Up is a chocolate brown creme polish. Personally, I'm not feeling the color too much although I will say it's different from the standard brown which is nice. I know you can see some streaking in the swatches, but this is not from the polish itself but rather the gloss topcoat from the Infinite line. Formula and consistency were identical to the majority of the colors in this half of my review. Swatched here over the primer base are two thin coats and sealed with the Infinite Shine gloss topcoat.


Now let's discuss the much talked about primer and gloss that are recommend for the long-term use of the infinite shine line by OPI. The Primer is intended to be used as a base coat for the gel-like polishes and also cleanses the nail for a smooth application. I found the formula to be a little too thin causing it to flood my cuticles. The Infinite Shine Gloss topcoat was definitely a big let down for me. If you don't use a thick amount of gloss it tends to cause noticeable streaking (you can mostly see this in my swatch of Never Give Up). In addition to this, the gloss does not deliver a long-lasting shine and I found my nails looking dull after a day of use. Definitely frustrating after getting such a nice looking mani from the creme shades in this line.

Overall though I'm a big fan of all the creme polishes in this half of the review. I didn't experience any concerning formula issues and had even found a lot of these to stamp extremely well. Yay for multi-tasking polishes. I'm not someone who wears polish normally any longer than two days so testing longevity was not possible. The only thing I can really comment on is that I did not experience chipping within those two days of wear. But tell me guys, have you had a chance to try out the OPI Infinite Shine line for yourself?

  11. I haven't tried Infinite Shine but I love CNDs similar line of gel-hybrids, Vinylux. I was hoping these where equally good but the top coat doesn't sound great. Great swatches!

  12. Beautiful swatches! At least you can top coat it with something else. OPI is too expensive here. It isn't even on my purchase radar
