This controversial film is based on the trilogy series of the same name. I tried my best to read it, and a little ways into the first book, I could honestly say I was enjoying it. Then he gave her the contract, and I had to shut it down. It was too awkward to sit in bed and read those words. So, I won't be paying for the movie either.
What I would be happy paying for however is the OPI collection released for the movie premiere. This collection only contains 6 shades, and after organizing them in my stash, I realized I didn't have many greys, so it was the perfect addition!
I was really looking forward to the nail art for the collection. I'd seen Fleury Rose's ripped tights nail art and knew I needed to recreate it...with a few racy additions.
I added the sexy lip bite and suggestive chains in honor of the adult content Fifty Shades of Grey is all about. Everything was done freehand, as usual. All the colors used (except the black and white detailing) are from the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection, so let's see them on their own.
|OPI - Cement the Deal|
|OPI - Embrace the Gray|
|OPI - Dark Side of the Mood|
Dark Side of the Mood (2 coats) is a super dark cool grey crelly. Like Embrace the Gray, it's more creme than jelly, but its consistency is definitely not pure creme.
|OPI - My Silk Tie|
My Silk Tie (2 coats) is a pale silver foil. As you can see, it's a little bit streaky, as foils tend to be. I used it for the chains in the nail art.
|OPI - Shine For Me|
Shine For Me (2 coats) is another white-silver foil, but it's sprinkled with consistent blue glitter. It has a little texture to it before a top coat is added, similar to the Liquid Sands OPI offers.
|OPI - Romantically Involved|
Finally there's the non-grey of the collection, Romatically Involved (2 coats). This red is a darker cherry red creme, perfect after two coats. It was the inspiration for most of the nail art as you can probably tell.
The Fifty Shades of Grey Collection is available now wherever OPI is sold. I definitely recommend picking up the grey shades, as those don't make their way into many OPI collections.
As for the movie and book, I can't recommend it, but I am curious to see what you all think of them. Let me know in the comments below!
