OPI Infinite Shine swatches

Hey lovelies! 
Today I have swatches of O.P.I Infinite Shine gel effects lacquer system. The 3-step system includes primer base coat, a lacquer, and gloss that cures like gel polish with no light required. They say it can last up to 10 days with out touch ups. 

I can't compare them to other gel polishes since I've never used them before. Also as a polish addict I don't wear polish for longer than 2-3 days.

I received this package from O.P.I as part of the #PreenMeVIP program.
I don't know how or why I was chosen to receive this package from O.P.I and but I'm very happy I was!

Here's a little collage of the swatches. There's 30 available shades and I was sent 10 shades and the primer base coat and gloss top coat.

The polish came in this cute little box.

My kit included 
Raisin' the bar
Unrepentantly red
Girl without limits
In pursuit of purple 
Endurance race to finish
You can count on it
Staying neutral
Strong coal-ition 
Brains & Bronze
To infinity and Blue-yond 

This is Brains & Bronze. Two easy coats no top coat. Look how shiny it is with out the gloss top coat! It's sort of a caramel color. 

This is Strong Coal-ition. Two easy coats no top coat. I love it!

This one is Staying Neutral. Again two easy coats no top coat. 

Next up is You can count on it. Two easy coats no top coat. Very pretty color and so shiny!

Here is In pursuit of purple. Two coats no top coat. Very pretty color, awesome application!

Raisin' the bar. Two coats no top coat. This one I had to be careful not to get it too close to the cuticule because it stains. I scrubbed with some whitening toothpaste and it worked a little. Beautiful color though.

This one is To infinity and blue-yond. Two coats plus the gloss top coat. I tried this one first and I wanted to do something fun. I wore it for three days no chips, or tip wear at all. That's pretty good. Like I said before I usually don't wear the same polish for more than a day or two.

This one is Girl with out limits. Two coats no top coat. Awesome formula. I feel like I have this pink somewhere in my pink polish drawer. 

Endurance race to finish. Again two coats no top coat. Love the color! I'm usually not drawn to oranges but I love this shade!

Last one is Unrepentaly Red. Once again two coats no top coat. Could've used one more coat since there's visible nail line. This one also stains the skin so I tried to be careful with it.

Overall I love the colors. Some are ones I wouldn't buy for myself so I'm glad I got a chance to try them. Formula is amazing as it usually is with O.P.I. I've never had problems with the ones I have. I'm a big O.P.I fan! These are great if you aren't able to change your polish often. 

Hope this was helpful. Have you tried gel polish? What do you think of it? Will you try O.P.I gel lacquer system? Any favorite colors? Leave your comments below.
