OPI Gargantuan Green Grape




After yesterday’s disgusting turn (sorry if I offend your eyes), I wanted something that was clean, crisp and smooth so that is how I ended up picking today’s polish. I completely overslept today and now I’m feeling like I got run over by a truck. I am also going to have a hell of a time trying to fall asleep early tonight so that I can wake up at dawn to go to work. Holy shitballs this sucks. Oh well, such is life! Sooo…back to the polish. I’ve had OPI Gargantuan Green Grape for a while but I hadn’t used it, and I have no idea why because it’s such a cool color. To be honest, the first time I grabbed it, I was attracted by the name. Being a complete lit freak, I just kept thinking of Rabelais’ Gargantua novels which was a series I loved reading when I was taking some hardcore French lit classes. How could I not like them? Satire and scatological humor galore! Before I get too off track, let’s look at my swatches, shall we?

I’m sad to report that the formula is not as wonderful as the finished result because it is fairly thin. Because of this, it applies super streaky so I do want to warn you that you will need multiple coats to even this out. When I saw how thin the formula was, I decided to apply very thin coats to minimize any dragging and bald spots so I ended up with 4 thin coats. Despite this, I still very much like this color and I can see myself wearing this for Spring.

What do you think of this color? If you like the color, are you willing to deal with a sort of difficult formula? I wanted to mention that I really enjoyed all of your comments and thoughts on the Crinkled Chrome polish that I posted yesterday. At least I know I’m not alone in my hate for that polish. Ha! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and we’ll talk soon!
