Olive for Green | I don't typically gravitate towards greens, but this is definitely a newfound favourite. I love how it's a dark enough shade to not be too crazy like some of those bright limes out there, but not so dark that it looks black. This wouldn't seem like a very spring-y shade, but it is surprisingly wearable for those transition months.

Don't Provoke the Plum | I found a top favourite in this shade because it is so smooth, opaque and vibrant yet classic. I have been looking for a nice plum magenta, but most of the time they end up looking dull and flat after a day or two's wear. Combining the Infinite Shine formulation and this gorgeous berry shade gives the perfect spring polish.

Rose Against Time | This photograph doesn't do the nail polish justice. This shade is a warm-toned borderline neon creme pink. I really like this for summer and think it will look amazing on toes too. I do like that it's not super warm or super bright -- just right!

Reach for the Sky | OPI's coming out with a lot more pastel blues lately and I couldn't be happier. I am a total sucker for baby blues, powder blues, periwinkles blues... any blue! This one is unique in that it leans more on the grey side.

It's Pink P.M. | This is similar to many other Soft Shades collection chiffon pinks, but the Infinite Shine formulation can't be beat. Spring is wedding season, so this would definitely be an option to explore. This one's a very faint and white-based baby pink.

Sunrise to Sunset | Of the collection this one isn't one of my tops, but this one isn't bad! I like how it's a toucan, tangerine kind of orange. A bit on the yellow side and less forgiving on my skin, but it's cute for spring nonetheless!

In Familiar Terra-Tory | Although I'm not a fan of orange, I am a fan of corals. This is a beautiful reddy orange shade that is a little more muted than captured in this direct light. This is the perfect shade for a bit of brightness, but not unwearable. I love this one!

Half Past Nude | We've been seeing a lot of these nude cremes lately and I'm actually really enjoying them. In the past, I had a really hard time finding neutrals that would work with my red-based skin tone. Eventually I came across Essie's Topless and Barefoot, which is slightly peach toned and works really well for me. This one is similar with the added perk of having the Infinite Shine formula, so I am one happy girl.

Just for funsies... here's some nail art I did with In Familiar Terra-Tory and Don't Provoke the Plum!

So overall, you can tell that I'm a huge fan of this collection and am so excited that they're expanding the Infinite Shine line. I really enjoy the formulation and think it is very true to its claims. I also really love this collection because it's so unique from most other spring collections we see every year.
