How much time does a woman spend painting her nails in a lifetime, weeks or even months? It must be an impressive lot of time for sure! So, is there a way to make it less and save your precious time?
The OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System promises to be the holy grail of nail polishes and have a solution. Besides an ultimate glossy effect, the press release promises this innovative nail polish stays for up to ten days.
Since OPI is the world leader in the professional nail care industry and provides high-quality products, the expectations are high. OPI Infinite Shine doesn’t need a lamp for drying and is easy to remove with nail polish remover. It's just like the nail studio has come to your home.
This is how the three steps of the application work:
1. Primer Infinite Shine: Base coat to protect your nails and for long-lasting stay.
2. Lacquer Infinite Shine: Available in 30 exciting colours. More will follow every season.
3. Gloss Infinite Shine: Top coat for super glossy gel-finish effect.
Is it really a miracle? My verdict:
I love the glossy effect OPI Infinite Shine has and the pigmentation is amazing. It looks more natural than a gel manicure while it's far more glossy than "normal" nail polishes. The available colour palette is very exciting and I am tempted to go for more colours. From the three colours I tested, the dark blue ("Get Ryd-Of-Thym Blues") is my favourite.
Three days after applying it the first chips appeared. Bad nail polishes usually just stay a day on my nails without chipping, so this makes it a very good polish even if the marketing promises didn't prove to be true. I tried the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel before – another gel system nail polish – and this one is far superior.
I can recommend OPI Infinite Shine, don't expect miracles, but a lot of shine on your nails for sure! Buy it at your local OPI reseller or find out where to get it in Switzerland here.
