Look! Vibrant, High-Gloss Exterior Paint in the Mission

Whenever we think of high-gloss exteriors our mind pops to local foodie haven Bar Tartine, and its deep forest-green entrance (photo after the jump). We always thought dark colors looked so polished and chic in a high-gloss paint, but seeing this house at 18th and Guerrero (right across from the original Tartine, incidentally), we think the finish can look nice in a vibrant color, too...

Despite many who might call it too garish or bold, we're actually fond of the color and found it looked exceptionally cheerful with the sun shining down on a recent warm day. What's your opinion on using a high-gloss exterior paint?
