NEW! OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Nail Polish System (Pictures & Review)

Press Sample


Hi friends!  I'm back today with a few shades from OPI's new Infinite Shine Gel Effects line!  Here's the 411, straight from the mouths of OPI (via their press release):

"OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System, offers the rich color, intense shine and lasting wear of gels – without the need for LED-light curing or soak-off removal. Available in 30 new shades (plus Primer base coat and Gloss top coat), Infinite Shine utilizes a three-step system to deliver a high-shine classic crème finish for nails that lasts up to 10 days.

Infinite Shine includes a full range of fashion-forward shades ranging from neutrals to bright reds, oranges and pinks to dark gray, blue and black hues: Pretty Pink Perseveres, From Here to Eternity, She Went On and On and On, Girl Without Limits, Running with the In-finite Crowd, Endurance Race to the Finish, No Stopping Me Now, Unrepentantly Red, Unequivocally Crimson, Relentless Ruby, In Pursuit of Purple, Grapely Admired, Can’t Be Beet!, Raisin’ the Bar, We’re in the Black, Get Ryd-of-thym Blues, Indignantly Indigo, To Infinity & Blue-yond, Withstands the Test of Thyme, To the Finish Lime!, Maintaining My Sand-ity, Tanacious Spirit, Brains & Bronze, Set in Stone, Never Give Up!, Strong Coal-ition, Steel Waters Run Deep, Staying Neutral, It Never Ends and You Can Count on It.


Infinite Shine is applied via a three-step system; first, apply Infinite Shine Primer (Step 1) to prevent staining and increase lacquer durability. Next, select one of 30 shades (Step 2) and paint two thin, even coats for richly-pigmented, vivid color. Finally, finish with Infinite Shine Gloss (Step 3), which features a state-of-the-art gel polymer formula that cures in natural light. Product can be removed easily with Expert Touch Nail Lacquer Remover; no soaking is required."


Here are the shades that I got to try. Each of them applied smoothly and with just 2 layers of polish each. Shown with the Infinite Shine Primer, Color, and Shine Gloss Top Coat:





I absolutely love the shine on these polishes!  I wore Set In Stone for 5 days and I had zero chips, and still a ton of shine.  I highly recommend checking these out.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Esqido Lashes~ Oh So Sweet Mink False Eyelashes (Review & Pictures)

Press Sample

Hi friends!  I have some beautiful lashes from Esqido to show you today!

How gorgeous is the box too!?
I've been hearing about mink lashes for awhile now, but had yet to try them. Now that I have---I'm hooked. ESQIDO mink lashes are handmade and incredibly soft. They truly feel like you have nothing on!  I am wearing the style "Oh So Sweet", which have a flowy, criss-crossed design:






These lashes will run you a bit more than the drugstore variety and it's for a great reason- with proper care, they can be worn up to 25 times! I cannot stress enough how comfortable these were to wear. I usually am very *aware* of the false lashes I wear (they itch, or are heavy and irritating), and I was able to completely forget that I even had these on. Needless to say, I highly recommend these!

Be sure to visit Esqido's website here, and check out their fascinating FAQ's page while you're there!

Have you tried Esqido lashes yet?  Which style is your fav?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Base color:
 Zoya Brittany

Stripes: 
Zoya Ziv (the best gold poish eva!)

Shine For Me
Silver & blue micro glitter with semi-opaque coverage (3 layers shown):
