OPI Infinite Shine Review

OPI has entered the gel hybrid game with OPI Infinite Shine. A concept similar to CND VINYLUX, Sally Hansen Miracle Gel and Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy, it claims to deliver gel-like shine and 10-day wear with the ease of removal you get from regular nail polish.

OPI Fifty Shades of Grey

Flash back to Spring 2012. I’m listening to Jennifer Hutt on Sirius XM Stars as she spends an entire hour asking people to call in if they’ve read some book called Fifty Shades of Grey. Apparently all the mom’s in her Jersey suburb were reading the Twilight fan fiction and calling it “mommy porn.”

Regardless, come February, the X-rated phenomenon will come to the big screen and OPI has partnered with the film to bring us six inspired shades.

I’ve long been a fan of grey polish, even after it was bastardized into griege and griolet, and happily welcome new versions into my collection. So, even if I’m not jazzed about the movie, I’m all in on the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey collection.
