Nicole by OPI Sounds Grape To Me

Sounds Grape To Me from Nicole by OPI doesn't seem too grape to me.  Granted, I think of grape as being something like China Glaze Grape Pop - purple and vibrant.  This is more of a brownish red to me.  This bottle had the old brush, not the pro-wide... I forgot how much I like OPI's Pro-Wide brush.

I used a base coat of OPI Natural Nail, 2 coats of polish and a top of OPI Top Coat.  The formula was nice and smooth.

See what I mean about this brownish red going on?  I don't see purple.  Am I alone in this one?

Shade picture shows how pretty this color is - even though I'm still not seeing purple in there.  I'm also still not totally sold on the bottle shape, despite the cool way it allows you to hold the bottle while painting your nails.

Finally indoors with the flash and more of that reddy brown.  Sorry Nicole, I'm not seeing purple at all and grapes to me are purple (or green!).  Still a really nice color though!  (To be fair, the press release says "A shimmering burgundy that up's for anything!")

Nicole by OPI is available beginning at ULTA, Meijer, Harmon, HEB, Sears, Wal-Mart and more for around $8 a bottle.  For more information, visit their websitefollow Nicole by OPI on Twitter or become a Facebook fan.

  1. It's not a grape jelly grape for sure. Maybe it is a wine grape? It is pretty, but seriously I wonder about the names sometimes!

  2. Models Own Beetlejuice 'Pinky Brown' is the perfect grape/brown duochrome, it's amazing!

  3. This looks SO freaking pretty on you!

  4. Maybe it's supposed to look like an actual reddish brown grape. The one with all the seeds.

  5. Okay, I'll totally go with the redding brown grapes with the nasty seeds (I hated those as a kid). :]
