OPI Infinite Shine Summer 2015 Collection: Review and Swatches
For Summer 2015, OPI Infinite Shine ($18 CAD) has released twelve new beautiful shades inspired by the bright sunny days and soft romantic sunsets of summer. With a gel-like shine and no need for LED or UV curing, the Infinite Shine range is a three-step mani process that promises to last at least ten days. To see some swatches and individual reviews for these shades, click.......

You're Blushing Again:
This is a pretty nude beige with a hint of rose. The formulation is super rich and pigmented so I only needed to use two coats.
You're Blushing Again, two coats with no top coat.
Lavendurable:
A super soft lilac, Lavendurable is buttery and fairly pigmented but the polish isn't very self-leveling. I used three coats for the swatches below.
Lavendurable, three coats with no top coat.
Patience Pays Off:
A warm mauve gray, Patience Pays Off is another nice and pigmented polish. Again, the formulation is not very self-leveling so I used three coats even though two were opaque enough.
Patience Pays Off, three coats with no top coat.
S-ageless Beauty:
This is a very soft pastel pistachio green. Formulation-wise it's a bit sheer but not difficult to work with. I used three coats for the swatches below.

Bee Mine Forever:
A baby yellow, Bee Mine Forever (such a cute name) is surprisingly pigmented and buttery. I only needed two coats for a really nice and smooth coverage.

The Sun Never Sets:
Incredibly pigmented and creamy, The Sun Never Sets is a delicious soft orange cream. This is definitely one of my favorite shades from the bunch!

Follow Your Bliss:
This is a simple baby pink cream with a lovely formulation. The color is pigmented enough that I only needed two coats for the swatches below.

To Be Continued...:
This is a lovely baby blue cream. The formulation is a bit sheer but it's easy enough to work with. I used three coats for the swatches below.

Wild Blue Yonder:
A super bright medium blue, Wild Blue Yonder is wonderfully pigmented and smooth. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Purpletual Emotion:
A dark purple, this shade looks a lot warmer in the bottle but applies quite inky and cool. The formulation is creamy and pigmented, a simple two-coater.

Enter the Golden Era:
This is a pale golden frost. The color is quite pigmented with a nice creamy texture. There are some streaks but the finish is pretty nice.
Enter the Golden Era, two coats with no top coat.
Silver on Ice:
Last but not least is a silver chrome with a really nice and pigmented formulation. The finish is a tad streaky but it's still very reflective and shiny.
Silver on Ice, two coats with no top coat.
Overall:
This is an absolutely lovely collection! I'm loving the rich and pigmented formulation even for some of the soft pastels. My personal favorites are Silver on Ice (silver chrome), You're Blushing Again (soft rose beige), Wild Blue Yonder (bright blue cream), and The Sun Never Sets (soft orange).
