OPI Infinite Shine Nail Lacquer question
Is this just a normal type polish or is this something that requires other steps, such as gel polishes?
And, this will be my last online nail-polish purchase!
I have found a few "no-name" polishes that I love on-line, but I think I’ll just stick to what I find in stores from now on.
I realized, after purchasing, that this was a 3-step polishing sysem type deal. I don’t actually care about how long it lasts, becauase I seem to get chips the next day, no matter what I use. But, I do care about how it applies, and this stuff was complete cr@ap! It streaked very badly and regardless of how many attempts I gave (which were many) I did not have any success. Like trying to polish my nails with White-Out. It was just BAD! BAD! BAD!
Regular Nail Polish. OPI is some of the best polish out there. I can get almost 2 weeks out of a polish but no regular polish is going to wear like a gel. And the thicker you apply it or the more coats you have, the more likely it is to chip.
I listened to my Nail Tech, I use gel on my fingers and regular polish on my toes. I do my own pedis…I only use OPI on my toes…I use thier base coat, two THIN coats of color, letting it dry between coats, and then a top coat. I do this when I have lots of time to make sure that I’m not rushed and don’t hurry drying time. And I can go two weeks between pedis.
But my hands take too much abuse…that’s why I use gel on my fingers. That last me almost a month…only because my nails grow out.
It’s supposed to be a longer-wearing regular polish. It doesn’t require UV or LED curing lights. That said, save your money. I bought it based on the good reviews I read on nail blogs. What a waste of money. It’s garbage. Chips faster than regular nail polish. I bought the base coat, top coat and 7 nail colors after reading all about it on nail blogs. Money down the toilet. I know how to paint my nails and I know how to use the product properly and I can tell you the product does not do what it says it will do and is not worth the money.
