OPI: Gargantuan Green Grape

I had my mini swatching fest today, and this was the first one I did. OPI's Gargantuan Green Grape! :)

I had to cut my nails down because I honestly cannot stand when my nails get too long. When I was little I always thought I wanted long, beautiful nails. And I would pretend that I had long nails. Now I know I can only stand my nails to be sort of long for a few days and then I get to cutting them off or filing them down. Anyway, GGG is a really pretty light, pastel green. I definitely don't have another green like this in my collection, so I'm so glad I finally decided to purchase this! Like I said in my vlog yesterday, I had picked this up about a hundred times and never actually bought it. Why? I have no idea. I'm glad it was still available and didn't become a polish I always wished I had gotten. The formula on this is okay. The first coat is pretty streaky and it seems like you'll never get the polish to build. I think if you're very careful and generous with the amount of polish on your brush, you might be able to pull off two coats. I, however, am not so skilled and three coats was what I needed. I love it though! It's a fun, light, summery shade and I regret not buying it earlier in the summer. I could have worn it so many times already. Oh well!

So what do y'all think? Do any of y'all own this polish? How has everyone's Monday gone? Mine hasn't been too bad! It's so hot, though, it wears you out real quick. Let me know what's going on and what y'all think!

Thanks for reading! :)

Love this! I'm usually not a green person, but this is a great summer colour. Really compliments you.

Emily said...

I've never seen this color before. I think colors like this look 50x better on short nails, to be honest!

Kay said...

That looks like a perfect color for you! Gorgeous!

I don't own this one, but I do like it.

I like longer nails, but they can be a pain in the butt sometimes. I am constantly cleaning them, because they can be dirt and germ traps. My nails start to curl a bit when they get long, and I hate that. Also, I have a knack for breaking nails!

Deb- When my nails get long I start noticing every little thing that's wrong with them. And they ARE magnets for dirt and stuff. After a while I just can't handle that anymore, haha. But long nails are so pretty! :)
