Hey Lovelies! I hope you're doing well :) Today I am happy to be sharing with you some of the New OPI Infinite Shine polishes! This is not a new collection...OPI has come out with some of their most popular polish shades with their new Infinite Shine formula! It works best as a system, which includes a primer, your color of choice and a glossy topcoat. So let's get into it! :D

**These polishes were sent to me for review by and OPI. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**

First shade is Funny Bunny, a beautiful white polish. If this were a 2 coat polish I would probably use it all of the time, unfortunately it's more of a 4 coat polish...I applied 3 thicker coats because I'm impatient enough when doing swatches that I didn't want to have to apply 4 coats :P

Since this was the first polish I swatched, I do have to admit that I was really impressed with the  Gloss Topcoat! It smoothed out any bumps/imperfections in the polish, and I really do think it's more glossy looking than my usual topcoat.

Bubble Bath is a beautiful baby pink polish. The shade is almost more of a nude pink, which I really like. The formula was a little sheer, so it took about 2-3 coats for full opacity.

Strawberry Margarita is one of those pink shades that you can never have enough of! This is my go-to pink polish, so I'm really excited to have this one! The formula was actually pretty impressive as well. It was mostly opaque with only 1 coat, but it did need 2 for a few sheer spots.

Big Apple Red is the perfect shade of red! The formula matched Strawberry Margarita, so it needed 2 coats for full opacity.

I'm Not Really a Waitress is SOO pretty in person! The shimmer in the polish is mesmerizing! And the formula was perfect, because I only used 1 coat for full opacity!

You Don't Know Jacques! is a beautiful color! I don't know how to explain it, other than it's like a nude/purple with maybe some grey undertones? I don't really know, but I do know that I love it! It was mostly opaque with 1 coat, but needed 2 for full opacity.

Russian Navy completely blew my breath away! Not kidding! If you don't have this polish you really should get it! It's a deep purple in some light, blue in other light and has pink and purple shimmer throughout that make it so eye catching! I actually did a double take when I first applied it :P And the thing that really makes this polish even more amazing is that it's completely opaque with 1 coat!

Lincoln Park After Dark is a beautiful deep was really hard to catch the true color of this one in photos because it just looks black. This polish needed 2 coats.

CIA=Color is Awesome is my personal favorite out of all of these polishes! This dark teal is so pretty! And it also only needed 1 coat!

So I have to admit that I really like these Infinite Shine polishes! The primer dries very quickly, the colors naturally have more shine than usual (in my own opinion) and the gloss topcoat works really well!

If you prefer the long lasting wear of Gel polishes, you will most likely love these, as they are meant  to last up to 10 days and you don't have to soak them off when you're ready for a new color.

Happy 3 day weekend Lovelies! Are you guys doing anything fun this weekend? Or just chilling out enjoying the quiet? I think my husband and I will be doing the later ;) But we also may go paddle boarding down on Lady Bird Lake...or even Lake Travis, I'm not sure, but I'm excited either way!

Today I have some STUNNING polishes to share with you from the Fall/Winter Collection by LVX. This Collection consists of 6 cream polishes (1 with some beautiful shimmer)...and I literally can't wait to show you, so let's just get into it already! :D

(Warning: This is a very picture heavy post, so Enjoy!)

**These polishes were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**

Up first we have Vanille, which is a beautiful buttery, cream color. The opacity was really great with this polish, it only needed 2 coats for full opacity.

I also wanted to switch it up a little and show you some stamping with only the colors in this Collection, so here I stamped Santal over Vanille with a plaid stamp from Born Pretty Store.

I love every polish in this Collection, but I have to say that Santal is my absolute favorite! The shimmer is so subtle, yet so mesmerizing and the shade of this beautiful mauve color is just fantastic! Full opacity with 2 coats.

Here I stamped Mink over the top using another stamp from Born Pretty Store.

Mink is literally the darkest a brown can get...which I like and I kind of don't like at the same time. The reason I don't like it is because in the bottle (and the 1st coat) the brown color is a noticeable, beautiful brown, but I think after the 2nd coat it looks more like a black if I could change anything about any of these polishes, it would only be this polish, by making it just a tad bit lighter so that it is noticeably different than a black polish.

Over Mink I stamped with Santal again, because that color really just pops over the dark brown.

How gorgeous is this shade of green!? This is Oasis, a rich, deep forest green. I am quite in love with this polish too ;) The application was extremely smooth and was fully opaque with 2 coats.

I stamped over Oasis using Vanille and another stamp from Born Pretty Store.

Brique is a totally fascinating shade of red to me. In the bottle it first looks like a more burgundy or maroon red (even on my toes it looks like a maroon red!), but the second I put it on my fingernails it looked more like a coral/red. Even though I used the exact same color on my toes, and did not apply it any different...they look like 2 completely separate polishes.

I stamped again with a stamp from Born Pretty Store using Mink over Brique.

And last up in the Collection is Ashe, a beautiful deep grey. The application mirrored all of the other polishes, it was smooth and completely opaque with 2 coats.

And just to make it really pop I added Brique over the top with a Born Pretty Store stamp and then added a matte topcoat.

So there it is! I hope you were able to make it all the way through this post :) I absolutely love this Collection! Especially since I'm really getting in the mood for Fall already ;) The application of LVX polishes never seems to change, which is wonderful because the application of all of their polishes is so smooth and lucious. Each of these polishes has amazing opacity! Which you can tell with the stamps :)

Get these polishes for yourself at and have a Wonderful Holiday weekend!
