OPI Infinite Shine Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Today I have a few Infinite Shine polishes from OPI to share with you. These are meant to be long wearing polishes worn in a 3 step system to prolong the manicure. The system starts with a base coat then you apply the color and top it off with their special top coat that cures with natural light. OPI has put out a bunch of core colors in the Infinite Shine line, they are also coming out with seasonal collections! The polishes in today's post are all from the core collection! Check out the swatches after the jump!

I don't have a wear test for these in this post but I did wear a couple of the shades for a week each. I got pretty good wear out of them, I did not experience any chipping and only minor tip wear during the week. The top coat does tend to dull though, which seems to be the norm for these types of systems. I also experienced the top coat dragging off the polish, even when I would wait for 5 or so minutes after applying the polish to apply the top coat.

Get Ryd-of-thym Blues is a dark navy blue creme. I like that this is a nice deep blue but not so deep that it looks black. The formula was good, it was a nice consistency and easy to apply with great opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Grapely Admired is a very pink toned purple creme. If this didn't have the would "Grapely" in the name I'd probably call it a pink but since OPI is calling it grape I guess it can be a pink toned purple instead haha *logic*

The formula was really nice, it was easy to apply and flowed nicely onto the nail. The opacity was also great, I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Maintaining My Sand-ity is a yellow toned beige creme. This is a little too yellow for my skin tone but I still like it and it will be good under glitter or as a base for nail art. I'm sure it will also look great on other people who aren't as pale and pink toned as I am. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and not streaky. The opacity was also really good which was a bit of a surprise, I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Pretty Pink Perseveres is a light pink creme. This is one of those nice pinks that makes us pale ladies look like we have a tan! The formula was ok, not my favorite and a bit tricky to work with. It went on streaky but did even out. I used 2 thin coats and 1 thicker coat for full opacity and to even it out. I used 3 coats for the photos below.

Set In Stone is a taupe-y brown creme. I always like shades like this, they are flattering on most people and are just easy to wear. The formula was good it was a nice consistency and had really great opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

OPI's Infinite Shine Collection is available now, these retail for $12.50 each (polish only, top and base coat are both separate)


  1. Beautiful shades!

  2. Not sure I'll be taking the plunge on these...if the wear really isn't stellar, I'll just stick with my regular cavalcade. I change my polish almost daily anyway!
