When I painted all my nails with OPI Infinite Shine Non-Stop White, it reminded me of when my friends and I used to paint our nails with whiteout in high school…except OPI has a smoother and creamier formula than the stationery supply, of course!
I’ve been looking for a one-coat white nail polish for a very long time, even though I rarely wear a full manicure of just white.
While OPI Infinite Shine Non-Stop White isn’t fully opaque in a single coat, it has very good coverage, especially for this clean white.
With my nails looking like snow, this manicure resembles a fresh, new slate.
I feel like a white manicure looks very summery on other people, and sometimes it’s very chic. On my nails, though, I feel the strong urge to paint a design on top or layer it with glitter or dots.

OPI Infinite Shine Non-Stop White Review
Although OPI Infinite Shine Non-Stop White is well, obviously white, it’s crisp like snow yet not harsh like the inside of a medical lab with ceiling lights that are uncomfortably bright. This one still has a softness to it that’s almost like marshmallow. (Then again, maybe I was craving something sweet when I wore this!) 😉
The creamy finish is extraordinary because, it has been my experience that, a lot of white nail polishes tend to be chalky or show streaks. With this one, it was glossy and smooth!
Application & Formula
Sometimes with a white nail polish, you have to pull up your sleeves and really concentrate to get it to look okay. But with OPI Infinite Shine Non-Stop White, I was pleased that the formula was top-notch! It went on wonderfully, and surprisingly, I only needed two medium coats to get the coverage you see in my photos! (I’m used to struggling with three or more coats with whites to get the final result to look even.)
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
OPI Infinite Shine Non-Stop White was a snow-queen-dream to paint with, and it has one of the smoother formulas for a white that I’ve come across.
Although the price tag is hefty, if you’re looking for a white nail polish that you won’t have to fight with to use, this one is wonderful! (If you’re into nail art, you know that white is so versatile – it’s used in many designs. So, if nail design is something you do, it may be worth investing in this quality white lacquer.)
Would you pay more for a nail polish if it has a superior formulation? Do you have a Holy Grail white nail polish? How often do you use white nail polish (in nail art or as a full manicure)?
Can you use these polishes with other base and top coats?
Absolutely! I’ve used them with a different top coat, and it worked fine. As long as you find the right pairing that works with your nail chemistry, you can use it with the Infinite Shine colours.
Thanks for sharing this with us! I can’t wait to try it out since I now know that it can be used with other base and top coats. BTW, this color looks great on you! 🙂
Have fun experimenting! 🙂
This is a very awesome white. I’m still looking for that perfect white.

I’m also still waiting for a one-coat white that isn’t streaky at all. In the meantime, this is a pretty good one!
