NOTD: OPI Gargantuan Green Grape


Gargantuan Green Grape...mmm, how the heck they came up with this name again???!!!

LOL Anyway, I picked this one up last week and it's such a gorgeous bright green. What's interesting about this color is that it sort of 'changes' depend on how you see it. The way it looks in the bottle, it's looking pretty pastel-y.

When I took a picture with artificial lighting, it came out pretty warm green.... and in real life it looks more like bright green.

I know, it's confusing but having said that I'm glad I picked this out. It's perfect for summer, and it's very bold & bright and gives you the "look at my nails" look. The only downside about this is that the first layer is very streaky, I almost freaked out because I really wanted to like this color. Fortunately the 2nd and 3rd coat did come out beautifully for an even application.

For these look I did 3 coats and this polish has a creme finish. I am including these two picture to show you that they could be captured differently, depends on the lighting. Those of you who wants to have a fun nails for summer time, or even spring....this green would be a fantastic choice.


(if you enlarge this picture above, you can see some small raindrops on my nails & fingers,
I didn't notice when I took the picture but they kinda make the shot look cool hehehe)
