Rated 3.75 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Shine & Long Wear
When used with the base coat & Infinite nail color (3 step ) you will have a long wear (at least 10 days) color with no chips or pealing. Make sure you let each stage dry and the last stage dry for at least 20 minutes. And start with clean dry nails with cuticles pushed back, do not cut or trim cuticles, this could lead to infection &/or rough hard cuticles.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not amazing
Well, okay. I bought this because I ran out of my old top coat and wanted to try something new. I wanted something glossy and shiny. So I put this on over top of an OPI polish, and already it was like pulling off some of the nail polish, and my nails were totally dry. On top of that, this top coat made my nails less shiny than they were before putting on the top coat, which seemed kind of odd. Then the polish seemed really thick and goopy, so it didn't even apply super evenly. I'm giving it 2 stars instead of 1 because I'm not sure how it will wear throughout the week. I'm usually someone who paints their nails every time it starts to chip, so we'll see.

This is an absolute NEED on top of the base coat if you are using the Infinite Shine line of nail polishes. Can not skip a step , or multiple coats , because the polish itself is So Thin , its almost impossible to get on without streaking. This seals it , and evens out the paint a bit. I bought 100s of them before even really mastering the art of not coming out looking like a 2 yr old painted your nails ; they might even look better. I am convinced that what the consumer buys , and what a nail salon gets ; are 2 different formulas , because I've watched my manicurist put it on since it was launched , and it was never so thin it streaks , and requires to be globbed on, or 5 coats of perfection for it to look great.. It may just need more practice, and a steadier hand than other polishes too; other than that , it does last longer , and less likely to chip over time , if you are patient enough to get it on right...

I use this product to finish off my manicured polished nails. This helps me keep nails polished longer
I will still use
Casey from Michigan
I bought steps 1 and 3 and several step 2's. I used it a few times now and loved it but the last application after step 3 turned out very dull. I had to check the step 2 to see if it was a different kind. I was thinking it was matte that is how dull it turned out. After reading the reviews I see I am not the only one. I will still continue to use but maybe put a different top coat over this step 3 and see what that does.

I tried this polish as an upgrade from my regular OPI polish but it did not hold up well. The wear was showing after a few days. the
Definite A Shine Top Coat
WhoCaresWhoIAm from SoCal
I've used this for over a year and while the bottle is not empty, it has thickened so much that I need to replace. I would repurchase as I think 12 months it is time, got my money worth. It dries fairly quickly to leave a nice shine. I wait until it is dry before applying cuticle oil. Do not touch it until it is completely dry. Since I reapply a strengthener after 5 days, so I remove polish. I do not really know how long this top coat would last since I remove it every 5 days, but it does last 4-5 days for me. I do apply a second coat of it on the 3rd day of my manicure.
Didn't last if you live a normal life

It didn't last. Sorry I bought it

Perfect finish to my colors
Polish turned thick and gooey
Allowisjes from Mansfield thx
I bought this 6mos ago and when I pulled it out recently, it was thick and gooey and wouldn't spread. It was like thick snot! I tried putting it in the fridge but it was still terrible! Idk what happened bc when I bought it, it was nice, thin and shiny. I won't buy again!
Very upset with my purchase. Manufacturer made a mistake.
Vick from Chicago,IL
I have bought and used OPI infinite shine base and top coat for many years. I purchased this new infinite shine 3 gloss topcoat 4 days ago and finally got a chance to use it.
I did everything correctly (as usual) and this made my nails/color dry extremely fast, and matte. After reading countless reviews, the manufacturer clearly made a mistake and this needs to be corrected! I don't know if they are intentionally trying to pull a fast one with switching the formula, but this is very disappointing. Hoping when I return to the store they have the "correct one"
Will definitely buy this product again!

Love this product!
Doesn't shine, not long lasting
Deal from Massachusetts
I applied this with an infinite shine polish and the base coast and my nails chipped and peeled within 48 hours of application. I work in healthcare and am constantly using hand sanitizer and washing my hands and this polish couldn't handle it. I also excited and more glossy finish for an "infinite shine" system but it was no better if not worse shine than any other polish.
Don't blow while drying
Nicampbell from Philadelphia
If you blow your nails to help them dry, the top coat dries matte. I'm not a fan of this line- there are much better topcoats out there.
Best Top Coat
CrazyNailLady from NC
Of course OPI is one of the best brands of nail polish, and this is no exception. I bought this on clearance a few years ago and I am just now getting to the end of the bottle. This stuff sticks! (If you're nail polish peels, it's most likely because there was residue or excess cuticle left on the nail bed btw.) It's VERY glossy, which is great. Applicator brush is great and the consistency is thick, but not too thick. Dries quickly but not so fast that it gets tacky during application process, which is a problem I've had with other brands before. 10/10 would recommend.
Typically a good product, just not today.
Ren from So Cal
Typically top coat is very glossy, however the bottle I purchased today had a matte-like consistency, I had to go back and check that I purchased the right one because it was very different to the previous bottles I had purchased before. Description did not match product.

Great Service, quick to ship and packaged well.
Lasted longer than any regular polish I have had
Busylilhoneybee from Central WA
I Gabe up regular manicures years ago as I could chip it before making it home from the shop! I did this myself, using the primer, nude, and top coat all in the infinite shine set and it lasted 3 days before I saw the first chip. Being a close to natural color I am excited to see if I can stand it until the 7-10 mark as I tend to take it off when it looks less than perfect.
TheTallOne from Southern California
I'm dealing with short, thin, damaged (from gel dips) nails like so many of us right now. This product had good reviews so I thought I'd give it a try. Well, I can say this is NOT for me. I used the Infinite Shine ProStay Primer, 2 coats of Infinite Shine color, and Infinite Shine ProStay Gloss. Once dried, I noticed all the ridges and "lumps" from damaged nails showed through. The Gloss top coat dried down to a semi-gloss finish which was disappointing. Also, it began chipping on day two.
Makes my polish peel quickly
Izleys from IL
My nail tech said a client of hers swears by this so I decided to give it a try. Not a fan. Makes my polish peel no matter what I do including using the top coat. Gave it away.
Crucial last step
Bea from Florida
This is the last part of the 3step system and is crucial for ensuring long lasting color. Prevents chipping & extends life of manicure. I've tried other product lines without success.
murbear from usa
this adds a great shine to opi polished nails. I don't do my nails without it.
Cbank from Missouri
Made my OPI nail polish dull. It made my nails matte. I also have an OPI matte top coat and this made my nails look just like it.
Love this stuff makes color last
Mar mar from Columbia
When I purchased this there was a promo to receive free item
The last 6 months any promo for items I purchased the free item has never been available
So that is disheartening
Good and shiny top coat
DeCe from Sterling Heights MI
I am a busy grandmother of 3 small boys... my nail polish takes a beating. This top coat has lasted longer than many others I have tried!
