OPI Infinite Shine Lacquer

OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System is a new line of gel shades which don’t need an LED light curing system or any soak-off removal to get them off.

They are applied using a three-step system: first, apply Infinite Shine Primer (Step 1) to prevent staining and increase lacquer durability. Next, select one of 30 shades (Step 2) and paint two thin, even coats for richly-pigmented, vivid color. Finally, finish with Infinite Shine Gloss (Step 3), which features a state-of-the-art gel polymer formula that cures in natural light. Then you can remove them using whatever nail polish remover you choose. They claim to last up to 10 days, which for me would be a miracle!


All my swatches were done using the 3-step method they recommend. I didn’t have any issues with the formula and they all covered with just two coats. Many of my brushes were screwy though, which was disappointing.

OPI Infinite Shine

I found these to be self-leveling and very pigmented. Using the three-step method they are super shiny and smooth looking. So I decided to give these a wear test which normally I don’t do because nothing lasts long on me. They claim to last up to 10 days. They lasted the typical 48 hours on me before showing wear. I wasn’t really surprised because that’s standard for me no matter the brand or method I use.

These are available now at salons, including Beauty Brands, beautybrands.com, Chatters, Dillard’s, Regis, ULTA and ulta.com for $12.50 each.

Are you going to try this line out and see how long it lasts on you?
