I love OPI Nail Lacquers because of their coverage and brushes.
But I hate OPI Infinite Shine Polishes for being so terribly short-lasting, even though they have the same properties like the classic nail polishes from OPI.
I’d laid my eyes on them long ago, but for some reason I thought that I needed an UV Nail Lamp for them, which I didn’t own.
One day, I went to the store to buy another OPI Nail polish, but then I saw the Infinite Shine line on the shelf and simply fell in love with two of the colors. The seller talked me into buying the top coat and base coat as well.
That’s how it looks like:
The application process is quite simple: one coat of the primer, two coats of the nail polish and a coat on the top.
And then the nail polish is supposed to last up to 7-10 days. Or so the legend says.
In fact, it was one day.
It was the worst failure. Ever. I’ve never seen such awful nail polishes before.
Maybe I did something wrong, which made both colors last one day?
Nothing. I didn’t cook. I put on my gloves when I washed my dishes. I went to the shower, though, okay, I admit.
***Running With The In-Finite Crowd***I applied it at 8 p.m., the photo was made at 11am on the next day. The color is fabulous!
The nail polish chipped at the nail tips. Anyway, one must be careful with red or any other dark color, because any flaw is immediately visible on them.
And then I just removed Running With The In-Finite Crowd and applied the next one, ***Half Past Nude***
The color is amazing. Sometimes I just want my nails to be nude yet cute.
The photo was made at 11 a.m.
This one was taken nearly midday (after shower, coffee and makeup). It looks like you can only sleep wearing this nail polish, and nothing else.
As you can see, it simply chips and by the end of the day it was almost gone. I had to hide my hands.
Conclusion: Yeah, it’s glossy, but why is it so short-lasting? I tried to use both top and base coats and my favorite nail dryer but nothing worked. I tried to apply the nail polish alone, and the result was just the same.
What am I supposed to do with these products now?
Would I recommend it? Definitely not!
