OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection

I am probably one of the only English students who actually enjoyed E. L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy (I will be discussing why I enjoyed the Fifty Shades novels in a later blog post, so I won’t rant too much about that now), and once I knew a film was being made – and Jamie Dornan was going to play Christian Grey – I was super excited! Like any film with a lot of hype surrounding it, Fifty Shades of Grey seemed to be popping up everywhere. One of the things that caught my eye was the OPI and Fifty Shades of Grey nail polish collection.



Now, I know I’m a sucker for packaging, and this purchase was no exception. The box was, expectedly, varying shades of grey, with the gorgeous Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson on the left hand side. As well as the box, my attention was grasped by the teeny tiny nail polish bottles. Anything miniature I think is so cute, and I knew I had to have these mini OPI polishes.


I’ve never tried any OPI polishes so I didn’t know what to expect when trying these. But the colours looked gorgeous, so I wanted to give them a fair chance. In the collection, you get six different colours: one metallic grey, three glossy grey shades, a grey toned glitter, and a red. I love them all, but it was the grey shades that really appealed to me. The names are cleverly tied into the film, so props to the OPI for that. We have My Silk Tie (metallic silver), Dark Side of the Mood (dark grey), Romantically Involved (red), Embrace the Gray (mid-grey), Shine For Me (glitter) and Cement the Deal (lightest grey). For some reason, I’ve been searching for grey nail polish, but couldn’t find one shade I really liked. In this set, I got three grey shades, to suit whatever mood I am in. I think grey polish looks gorgeous on the nails, especially in the winter, and I’m hoping they’ll look just as nice with a bit of a tan (although let’s be honest, the only tan I get is from the bottle).





I’m not sure if this is readily available anymore, as the film has been out now for a little while, but I wanted to share these gorgeous polishes with you.
Until next time,
