The Infinite Shine formula was new to me, and I'm glad that I gave it a try! I've never had a manicure last as long, I still can't believe it!!

I tried 2 shades so far, Half Past Nude and Don't Provoke the Plum. Both had minimal tip wear on the sixth day after application and they began to chip after 13-14 days. Here's the proof!

Day 2 - Day 6 :

Day 2 : My manicure still looks the same as it did right after the application. I didn't photograph my nails between day 2 and 6 because there wasn't a major change.

Day 6 : The finish was less glossy and I noticed some minimal tip wear, but it wasn't very visible.

Day 8 - Day 10 :

Day 8 : The tip wear was more noticeable but it didn't bother me. I noticed tiny cracks on a few nails though. 

Day 10 : Still no chipping, but the cracks were more visible.

Day 2 - Day 14 :

Day 14 : Some nails had major tip wear and large cracks. I noticed the first chips on a few fingernails as well! At this point, the cracks and nail growth were too noticeable for me anyway so I decided to take it off.

For best results, you will need the Infinite Shine 1 Primer and the Infinite Shine 3 Gloss. You can probably wear the colors without them but I don't know if it will affect the staying power.

It's Pink P.M. is a peachy pink white with a creme finish. I'm currently wearing this color on my toenails and I love it, but it's not the best formula. It's quite a bit streaky even with 3 coats, so I highly suggest to try the matte top coat trick. Let's Be Friends! (Hello Kitty Collection) is less peachy. Stop it I'm Blushing! (Soft Shades 2016 Collection) is slightly darker.

Half Past Nude is a pinky nude with a creme finish. Oh my god, I love this color! This shade is a bit streaky so I recommend to apply 3 coats instead of 2. So worth it though!

Rose Against Time is a bubble gum pink with a creme finish. This one is streaky in two coats, but 3 coats did the trick! Suzi Nails New Orleans (New Orleans Collection) is slightly lighter.

Don't Provoke the Plum! is a plum with a creme finish. This plum is almost fully opaque with 2 coats, but it looks best with 3.

In Familiar Terra-tory is a terracotta orange with a creme finish. Perfect formula, the finish is very smooth and it was completely opaque in 2 coats.

Sunrise to Sunset is a light orange with a creme finish. This shade is a bit streaky with 2 coats but it looks great with 3 thin coats. Crawfishin' for a Compliment (New Orleans Collection) is almost identical, slightly more pink.

Reach for the Sky is a light blue grey with a creme finish. The consistency is perfect, opaque in two coats and very smooth. Love this one!

Olive for Green is an olive green with a creme finish. This shade is almost fully opaque in 2 coats but it's a bit streaky, so I prefer to apply 3 coats.
