OPI Infinite Shine : CIA Color is Awesome

Press Sample

Hey there, happy weekend! On this first fall Saturday of the year I will be sharing another polish I received from OPI as part of the PreenMeVIP program! Its CIA Color Is Awesome today and its actually from the fall 2016 line. :) 

Here we have ONE coat of CIA Color Is Awesome which is a lovely dark teal! :) I am loving this color so so much. Its actually brand new and is from the Fall 2016 line. I was eyeing it this summer when it came out in the regular polish but it was just to early for fall colors then. Haha! Not now! :) I am also very impressed with the fact it only needed ONE coat! So happy about that! 

If you haven't seen the past so many posts here are the "Infinite Shine" details, since its not regular polish.

In the world of polish right now there are 3 types of polishes that you hear about. Regular polishgel polish and hybrid polish. Now you may be think hybrid polish? Whaaaattt? Well it's a real thing I promise. It's basically regular nail polish how ever they come more as a "system" with a specific base and top, and you use them all within the same company. Most companies advertise that the manicure will last with no chips up to 10-14 days. The day number depends on the brand. Now you may be wondering where do I find these hybrid polishes and how come I haven't seen them. The answer to that is you probably have seen them and you can find them everywhere! The reason you probably have realized it is that every brand seems to have a different name for them. China Glaze has Ever Glaze, Essie has Gel Couture, OPI is Infinite Shine and so on. They like to compare them to gels saying they last like gels. Now if you are like me and you don't care for gels these hybrids may be a good answer. They are supposed to be long lasting, and they are applied just like regular polish and removed like regular polish, you just have to follow that brands "system"! That in my opinion seems like a do able thing if you want a longer lasting mani and if it truly is long lasting!

Now I had more detailed are intentions for this beauty but something came up and I had to do my nails in a much smaller time span so I went simple. I decided to use my fave ILNP, Clockwork, as the accent because its been a while since I've used it. Plus weird and fun fact the first time I ever wore this polish was actually a year ago today! Maybe that's odd to know, but on memorable days I try to wear memorable polishes today was one of those days last year.

I went to a fun and different concert with my best friends and got to spend some time with some super nice people! :) Ahh, such good memories. Anyone else put polishes to memories!

Well thats it for today! :) I hope you have enjoyed these nails. :) Also I hope you have a WONDERFUL week! I have some new ideas that I think will start showing up soon!

Happy Painting!
