Good morning, readers! I have swatches of the OPI Infinite Shine SoftShades Collection to share with you today. These released in Spring but soft colors can work all year, right? Perfect for wearing to work if you have strict dress codes, great for wedding manis, or if you just prefer a more natural nail look. Let’s take a look at the 6 colors that I believe aren’t limited edition and should now be part of their core Infinite Shine line. Not familiar with Infinite Shine? It’s a three-step process that is supposed to give you up to 10 days of shine and wear, without the hassle of curing with a lamp and removes like regular lacquer.

Before we begin, I want to link back to my original Infinite Shine Review and Wear TestPlease check those out for more info if you haven’t already. To summarize:

  • I didn’t have better wear with Infinite Shines than any other polishes, but that could be my nail chemistry and how hard I am on my nails.
  •  The top coat pulls color onto the brush so I know it would smear nail art if I tried to use it for that. If you are going to use this system as recommended, try nail art on one nail before all of your nails in case it does drag the art.
  • I was sent new primer and top coat bottles so those are what I used for this review. To me, the top coat seemed thinner than my previous experience so they could have reformulated it. However, thinner made for brush strokes visible in the top coat upon drying–which should be easy enough for you to see in the photos below.
  • These polishes were easy to apply, no too-thick formulas that I know some of you commented on while trying the first Infinite Shines.

OPI Go to Grayt Lengths
A chic, shimmering silvery gray.
I’m showing two coats below with the primer and top coat.
I really liked this color, it’s a gray creme but then the added silver shimmer gives it a cool effect versus if it was a crelly formula. Definitely like this one a lot!OPI Infinite Shine Go to Grayt Lengths 1 OPI Infinite Shine Go to Grayt Lengths 2 OPI Infinite Shine Go to Grayt Lengths macro

OPI Pearl of Wisdom
A lightly shimmering, mother-of-pearl shade.
I’m showing three coats below with the primer and top coat.
Even with three coats, I’m seeing some lighter patches in this one. However, the shimmer is really pretty and I’m so glad its not a frosty pearl effect like I expected by the description. This would also look pretty layered over a white base. Or even possibly another soft shade base.OPI Infinite Shine Pearl of Wisdom 1 OPI Infinite Shine Pearl of Wisdom 2 OPI Infinite Shine Pearl of Wisdom macro

OPI Non-Stop White
A solid, opaque white creme.
I’m showing three coats below with primer and top coat.
A nice, opaque white shade.OPI Infinite Shine Non-Stop White 1 OPI Infinite Shine Non-Stop White 2

OPI Beyond the Pale Pink
A scandalously nude, barely there pale pink.
I’m showing three coats below with primer and top coat.
This is a nice soft pale creme, as opposed to the stark white of Non-Stop White.OPI Infinite Shine Beyond the Pale Pink 1OPI Infinite Shine Beyond the Pale Pink 2

OPI The Beige of Reason
A sheer, rosy light beige.
I’m showing three coats below with primer and top coat.
This is a nice look if you want to go natural but don’t like the look of your bare nails. You could pair this with white tips for an easy french look.OPI Infinite Shine The Beige of Reason 1 OPI Infinite Shine The Beige of Reason 2

OPI Eternally Turquoise
A pale, green hued blue.
I’m showing three coats below with primer and top coat.
I had a few lighter patches at two coats so I did need the third. I’m quite happy with this color and am glad they threw it in with the softer shades. OPI Infinite Shine Eternally Turquoise 1 OPI Infinite Shine Eternally Turquoise 2
