OPI Gargantuan green grape

Gargantuan green grape is a pretty special polish, because it is actually available in two different colors. There’s one green version and one blue version of this polish. That’s kind of crazy, right?

I got the green version first, and it is a pretty light green polish. And when I saw that there was a blue version of this polish too I started looking for it. I took some time to find though. One day last summer I went to Kicks (a beauty store in Sweden) and of course I went by the OPI shelf. I was not specifically looking for this polish, but since I had been wanting it for some time I got really excited when I saw a light blue polish, and this time I got lucky and found just this one! I haven’t seen it in any store since I found mine.

Let’s look at some swatches and compare the two versions of this polish. As you can see they are both called “Gargantuan green grape – NL B44”.

This polish is quite sheer and a bit runny. I needed three coats to get full coverage. I’m not wearing any top coat in these pictures.

I have to say that formula vise these two polishes are pretty similar, as with the green version I needed three coats to get full coverage. No top coat in these pictures as well.

If I had to choose between the two colors I would pick the blue version of this polish. Just because light green polishes are much easier to find. I had to look really hard to find the blue one. And also because I think that we need more light blue/baby blue polishes! (Which we will get from OPI this spring, I’m so excited!)

Do you own this polish? If you do, which version of it do have?
