New Infinite Shines! Kind of... For Fall, OPI is bringing us 30 of their most classic, or iconic, I should say, shades in Infinite Shine form. Yup. You can now find a great selection of your faves in the longer-wearing gel-like formula. I've got ten of those shades swatched and ready to chat up. Interested? You know what to do....
Pssst... New to OPI Infinite Shine? I recommend checking out my initial review and wear test for all the info regarding the formula and base/top coat.
Funny Bunny is a semi-sheer, soft white with an almost crelly (cream + jelly) formula.I used two coats and have a hint of unevenness (which was barely visible in person) and visible nail line showing, so you may want to use three. The formula is pretty easy, and applies better than I expected for a milky sheer.
Bubble Bath is a semi-sheer nude-y pink. I know sheers aren't always popular, but Bubble Bath is such a great shade when you want a clean, perfected look in a hurry. Two coats gives the perfect amount of colour and shine for a modern feminine look. And, it's not streaky, at all!
Dulce de Leche is a soft, medium depth, creamy nude. I don't know how I had misses this shade before, but it might just be my new favourite nude. The colour is gorgeous with a pretty great formula to match as this is almost a one coater. I ended up needing two, but it's as easy going as one could want.
You Don't Know Jaques! is a brown based taupe cream with a hint of mauve. I had forgotten how great this shade was and can guarantee it will be a fall staple for me. It applies perfectly with two fuss-free coats.
Strawberry Margarita is a bold and bright pink cream with the slightest coral edge. It's super smooth and pigmented and was very close to only needing once coat. Two coats.
Cajun Shrimp is a bold coral and a shade I avoided just because of the name. It just doesn't sound right to me... Anyway, the formula is great and this beauty applies in two easy coats.
Big Apple Red is a classic, medium-depth red cream. It reads a bit deeper in person than in my photos, but still has some vibrancy. Another easy formula- actually, all of these shades apply really nicely. Two coats.
I'm Not Really a Waitress is quite possibly the most famous OPI red and brings a glowy deep red hue with a shimmer-pearl finish. It's gorgeous! It's another shade I can't believe I don't already own. The formula is perfect and another almost one coater. Two coats.
Malaga Wine is a deep plummy-burgundy. It photographed too brown, so I had to colour adjust a bit. Another saturated shade that is almost perfect with one coat. Two coats.
Lincoln Park After Dark is a blacked purple cream that is almost all black. It has the slightest tint of purple, but reads very close as black. Two coats.

I kind of love that OPI is giving new life to their classic shades, it's even better if you happen to love the Infinite Shine formula. It should be noted that you're not out of luck if your favourite OPI shade isn't in this batch of thirty because thirty more shades will be released in December as Infinite Shine shades. Personally, I'm holding out for Jade is the New Black and Lucky Lucky Lavender. Infinite Shine polish, primer (aka base coat), and gloss (aka top coat) retail for $12.50 USD/ $16.95 CAD. What do think? Need any of your favourite shades in this formula?
