Gel nail polish is pretty popular these days, and maybe you’ll find it surprising, but I’ve never tried any of them! (Have you?)
Now, OPI has come out with their own version – OPI Infinite Shine, and what sets it apart from many others is that it doesn’t require an LED light to cure the polish, and you can just use regular nail-polish remover instead of having to ‘soak off’ the manicure when you’re ready to take it off.
Like a regular gel nail polish, it’s supposed to last for up to 10 days, and it comes in tons of different colours – 30!
When I went to the OPI Hawaii Collection Media Launch, PR was generous to provide me with the nail board of all 30 exciting OPI Infinite Shine shades, as well as the OPI Infinite Shine Primer, OPI Infinite Shine Gloss, and a colourful lacquer, OPI Infinite Shine No Stopping Me Now.
Check out this post to see everything closer, but especially the beautiful swatches. There are so many gorgeous colours, and my top picks are To the Finish Lime!, Withstands the Test of Thyme, and To Infinity & Blue-yond!

Infinite Shine is applied via 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. Product can be removed easily with Expert Touch Nail Lacquer Remover; no soaking is required.
Infinite Shine products feature a proprietary formula and each bottle includes OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System will be available November 3, 2014, at Professional Salons and spas across Canada for $14.95 CAN suggested retail for each nail lacquer.
