Product Review: OPI Infinite Shine

OPI Infinite Shine manicure in ‘Miami Beet’ Day 1

Guys, I’m so disappointed! I tried OPI’s Infinite Shine formula* and it did not have the staying power I was hoping for. It was so pretty on day 1 (see above). Now check out day 7 (below).

I had the nail lady use the three-step Infinite Shine system: special base coat, then the polish, then the special top coat. I don’t know what went wrong. I usually love OPI, and don’t have this much chipping, even with the regular formula. The only thing I can think of is the lady left my nails a little longer than usual, which couldn’t have helped.

Essie Gel Couture is still the longest-lasting polish I’ve ever tried. That’s why I had such high hopes for OPI. Sad trombone.

Have you tried OPI Infinite Shine and/or Essie Gel Couture? I’d be curious to hear your thoughts on them. Let’s talk nails in the comments!

This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!

    I hate it when a product promises it will last and it doesn’t. On a positive the note the shade looks amazing on you.

      I was bummed! It was shiny though, but chipped a lot. Annoying. Essie Gel Couture for the win. I may give this one more try though.
