OPI Gargantuan Green Grape & PAMS AND KIN Concrete Jungle

Pin It Happy Saturday!  For the first time in 2 weeks I gave my self a full manicure bahahha. And these are the colors I used :]

I've been wanting to try a Pams & Kin polish for awhile now! Luckily, I won a bottle of Concrete Jungle in a Facebook giveaway! I also grabbed OPI Gargantuan Green Grape off Copious and it FINALLY came in the mail!

I was super excited to try both of these polishes! I couldn't wait to get them on my nails! Here's a few swatches for ya:

I'm a sucker for green, as you guys know! I was way excited to get my hands on a TRUE light green polish. I've seen a few swatches online that  made this look like a mint green or a light neon green and I don't feel like either fit this polish. This is a LIGHT GREEN creme polish. I was kind of disappointed in the application... I had a horrible balding problem with it, to the point it ended up with 4 coats per nail.

Then, I added Concrete Jungle as an accent nail:

I've passed on trying P&K polishes multiple times, mostly because there aren't swatches on their etsy shop haha. BUT NOW I have one, Concrete Jungle, and I'm SOOO happy I've been able to try one of their polishes! When I got these in the mail back to back, they screamed "COMBOOOO!!!" to me haha. Concrete Jungle is an awesome graphite/charcoal scattered holographic polish. Concrete Jungle was good to go in 2 coats, which I was happy about because for some reason I thought it would take 3. It was slightly thick but had a great smooth application.

I got OPI Gargantuan Green Grape from Copious. You can find out more about penny items via Copious, here. You can find Pams & Kin polishes, here. They have some pretty ones! They range from $10-12.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Great combo! I've read of a few people having problems with G3, but it's such an interesting color.

  2. It is! Worth working for! I wonder if a layer of white would help?
