OPI Infinite Shine Summer 2015 Swatches & Review, Part 1!

*Sent for review*

Summer's not over yet folks! It's supposed to be really hot here this week and I have the OPI Summer Infinite Shine collection for your viewing enjoyment! First up is a great true purple creme, OPI Purpletual Emotion. Purpletual Emotion is a very classic medium purple, not too dark, but not pale either, and it doesn't lean too blue, nor too red. It's just right in the middle and I think it will flatter almost everyone.

This is two easy coats. The formula was great and effortless to control. All swatches in this post were finished with one coat of OPI Infinite Shine Gloss top coat.

OPI Lavendurable is the palest lavender creme, almost white tinged with lavender. This is pale and soft enough to be work appropriate for some people. It's just a soft hint of lilac in a creamy cool white. 

This is three thin coats of Lavendurable. Despite it's paleness, it wasn't streaky and it was pretty easy to work with. You could probably do two regular coats, as it was pretty pigmented.

OPI Follow Your Bliss is a classic pink creme. I've actually been looking for a classy pink like this. It's a light pink, but not too pastel or washed out. Follow Your Bliss is also not a candy pink, it has more neutral tones to it. This is a great work option.

This is two easy coats. Follow Your Bliss is nicely pigmented and was great to work with.

OPI You're Blushing Again is a nude creme with blush pink undertones. If you're in the market for a  flattering neutral with hints of beige and pink, definitely check this one out.

This is three coats of You're Blushing Again. It was pretty easy to apply and covered well in three thin coats. I am not sure why I had some bubbling with this one. I didn't experience that with the other polishes in this collection, so maybe there was just a breeze when I applied this or something.

OPI Patience Pays Off is a pale milky white pink creme. It has some grey and putty tones. Like Lavendurable, it's so pale it's almost like a white creme with drops of pinkish nude added.

This is three thin coats. I found Patience Pays Off to be streaky, despite waiting in between coats. It was also thinner than the other polishes in the collection. It wanted to pool in my cuticles. The others all had that nice gel-like consistency, but Patience Pays Off was lacking in that department.

OPI Silver on Ice is a great bright silver shimmer. I am always a fan of silver shimmers and this is no exception! I like to use opaque silvers like this during the holiday season when I just need to slap something festive on quickly.

Silver on Ice could be a one-coater if you are careful. This is two coats. It is a bit brushstroke-y, although less so than these pictures make it appear. It was easy to apply.

Out of these six polishes, my two favorites are Silver on Ice and Follow Your Bliss. I really am growing to love the Infinite Shine formula, it's very easy to work with and the shine is just beautiful! I'll have the second half of the Infinite Shine Summer collection up soon!

The OPI Infinite Shine Summer shades are available now at Ulta, and professional salons.
