OPI Infinite Shine Summer 2015 Nail Polish Collection

I have been having a lot of OPI swatch parties this year but this one was by far the most time-consuming: 12 shades of OPI Infinite Shine polishes for Summer 2015. Launched earlier this year, the three-step Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System is OPI's answer to gel effect manis with no light curing or soaking required. Step 1 is the Prime base coat, Step 2 is the Lacquer, and Step 3 is the high-sheen Gloss top coat.

Unfortunately I have not had time to pick up the Prime and Gloss so I cannot comment on the wear time of this new Infinite Shine system (sorry guys, major fail as a nail blogger!). At $18 CAD a bottle, which is a fairly significant price increase over regular OPI, I have read some mixed reviews on whether or not it's actually worth it. I personally change my polish so often that longevity is a non-issue for me, and besides, you can totally wear the Lacquer colours with your own base and top coats.

To that end, I figured I could at least share some swatches so those of you who are interested can get a sense of the shade range available in the Summer 2015 Collection. Overall, I'd say there is a good mix of mostly creams and two metallics.

  1. beautiful shades. The silver is so striking! I wish OPI was sold in drugstores here in the UK.

  2. You did so well with all these swatches!!
    I adore this collection, if I didn't own so many polishes already I would be rushing to pick it up for sure, the lovely balance between brights and toned down pastels and how the shades flatter lots of skintones too - they did an excellent job ^_^
