    The principal difference is that one is grammatical, the other is not: finish does not take infinitival complements. – StoneyB Mar 20 '17 at 22:15

I guess that you are trying to understand the differences between gerund and infinitive after certain verbs. Unfortunately, after "finish" verb, we just have gerund only.

F.Y.I: we just have some verbs having both forms (gerund and infinitive) with different meaning, not all verbs having that "feature"
