♥ OPI 'Gargantuan Green Grape' ♥

 WHEW

This shade of green is something....else. It is a few more shades toward the yellow side in real life, and I am not even going to try and take photos outside. It looks a little more blue in all the photos of swatches and manicures that I have seen on the internet. There must be some magical & powerful yellow pigment in this polish to make it do this. My camera would not focus on this mani until I changed from a white back drop to a black one to get photos of this = weird! Or, I had another black object in the photo such as the top coat bottle or the OPI bottle.

Anyhoo This OPI polish 'Gargantuan Green Grape' is definitely bright and eye catching. I love bright pastel-ish colors that can be seen in dim dark lighting. I grabbed the wrong bottle of T.C. and applied it to my Thumb & Index finger so I got a few bubbles and gouges. Other than that this polish had no application issues and dried in a decent amount of time. It is a jelly-ish creme formula. I do not like the thick brush handle.... I like skinny-er brush handles, but I know with practice I will survive. 

This was 3 coats of GGG, and two coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat. All my photos are indoors under fluorescent lighting.

Awesome post, I have just recently bought the same shade but in the Matte version. Can't wait to try it out. =)

My best friend has this color and I remember it being really sloppy. I am not good at putting on polish though, so it could be just me, but this was worse than some. I love the name. And I love OPI.

Velvet said...

Deez! I love your pics...just gorgeous! I have seen this polish in the store, and keep debating on if I should by it. It's such an interesting color.

Girl, I have this one and love it! It's gorgeous. However, I could just not take a decent picture of it - but you just took a pile of decent pics! Very nicely done. Looks fantastic on you!

♥ GildedAngel - Thanks!, Its really, really bright.

♥ Angie - Thanks - it reminds me of some type of candy...hmmmmm....

♥ Redz2486 - Thanks! I have seen the matte version on other blogs and it is very pretty.

♥ Danica - Thanks! It was runny & I had to do 3 coats... I think that I may have needed four but I stopped at three. OPI does come up with interesting names.

♥ Katie - I think the strong yellow tone of this polish, coupled with the jelly-creme finish is really bizarre..... It lasted two days for me, then I had to take it off.

♥ Nihrida - Thanks! You hate OPI? .... I think they are overpriced here in Canada, they do have some cool colors though.

♥ Michèle - Thanks - It's a neat color, I think it will be great for summertime.

♥ Brooke - It is a neat green

♥ Velvet - It is an interesting color..... I do not think I have any object to compare it to.

♥ Nicole - I saw this on your blog and you got great outdoor photos with it. There is a pigment in this polish that makes it very difficult to photograph.... l just like fluorescent & neon polish's.

♥ Jaljen - Thanks - I think green look great on everyone as well....
