A really pretty bronzey plum shade. I love this color.

I have been searching high and low for a medium purple color that is less red-toned than plum but not too cool-toned for my skin color (warm-toned NC30 with very golden undertones). I'm surprised that other people with warm skin tones find that this color doesn't agree with them. It's absolutely beautiful-- just what I was looking for. The quality is great and it's not too glittery, it just has a beautiful sheen.

*Le sigh* As much as I was excited about this color, it was just a letdown. Wear and application are great, per usual for OPI. I find that using a thin layer of top coat on top of base coat (before applying color) makes the polish go on a lot smoother and you have a lot more control w/ the pro-wide brush. The color is definitely grape, like a Concord grape, w/ v. slight bronzy-pink shimmer. I think this color would probably look marvelous on cool-complected ladies but on me (v. olive C40 complexion) it just looked like Dimetapp. I wouldn't have a problem w/ it being so cool-toned if it was a bit deeper in color but it's not even deep enough to fall under 'vampy'. It's just kind of an average midtone grape color. Can't say I would recommend this one for ppl w/ olive skin.

Catherine the Grape, from OPIs Russian collection, is a plum purple with gold shimmer (although Ive heard some describe the shimmer as bronze). Regardless, this is a rich, beautiful color that will be perfect for autumn.
The first coat was a bit streaky, but a second coat really makes it work.
The color is reminiscent of another OPI favorite of mine, Route Beer Float. However, Catherine the Grape is less "muddy" than RBF.
This color is darker, yet brighter if that makes any sense.
It is definitely a must-have for fall. A lovely respite from the black and navy hues that are likely to dominate the season.
