Fifty Shades of Grey is a little bit like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. It's not for everyone, but you can't deny it's popularity, which is why O.P.I have teamed up to bring you this limited edition Fifty Shades of Grey nail polish collection. The shades are inspired by the book, and soon to be film - out 13th of February. For me, personally, I'm a huge lover. I've expressed why I love the book on a number of occasions, and it's nothing to do with the seedy sex scenes in the book. The book does have a story - which, some people seem to not agree with - if you look past the sexual activity you can see there's much more to it. What Christian has been through. Why he's like he his. It's a beautiful love story and I for one am looking forward to the film. The O.P.I collection is a beautiful selection of creamy greys; Chrome, glitter and a gorgeous red thrown in to the mix.
|Dark side of the mood isn't this dark in real life. Due to poor lighting I had no choice but to use flash which ended up being a little harsh on this particular shade.|
I found the formula to be a little hit and miss on some of the shades, with some being a little prone to streaks, especially the light greys. I found the shades needed to have 2 even 3 coats at times. It's not the most exciting collection ever due to the lack of colour involved - I personally love the shades. My Silk Tie and Shine for me are definitely my favourites. I chose to layer shine for me on top of the lighter greys to jazz it up a little.
I picked up the mini collection of six 3.75ml polishes for just over £15.00. You can get the bigger bottles for £11.95 each.
