OPI Gargantuan Green Grape

This morning I have a birthday polish I received from my charming Twinsie Cordia from Seriously Swatched.  I saw this polish swatched on Meredith's Polish and Charms and Anna's Going to the Showing and knew I had to have it.  On to the wish list it went and Cordia surprised me by sending it my way!

 While not a quintessential mint, Gargantuan Green Grape is a pastel pistachio green creme that pops off the skin.  While it looks a bit white in my swatch, I can assure you that the color is highly pigmented and bright.  There's something really refreshing about a pale green that isn't quite mint.

This is 3 coats of a typical OPI formula.


FYI, I actually wore this baby on my birthday, which only made me happier whenever I looked at my hands.  This color has quickly become one of my favorite OPIs of all time and I noticed that I gravitate towards GGG whenever I'm polish shopping only to realize when I look at the label, I already own it.  I guess that's a good thing but it's a bit of a letdown since I so easily amp myself up for a new beauty.  (I wonder if that happens to anyone else?)
