Fifty Shades of Grey by OPI

You know the advertising rule where they say that you need to see something seven times in order to want to buy it? That rule applied to my introduction to Fifty Shades of Grey by author, EL James. I began hearing about the books everywhere! From friends, on Facebook and even people looking at the books in stores. I was at an airport waiting to catch a plane home and saw two different people near me reading the book. I thought to myself that I need to check it out and see what all the hype was about!

I devoured the books in a few short weeks and then made sure to tell a few close friends to read them as well! The movie is coming out soon too Universal Pictures and Focus Features’ film, Fifty Shades of Grey will arrive in theatres on Valentine’s Day weekend. I’m hoping to convince John to come with me to see the movie. He has no clue about the story line so he is in for a little bit of a surprise!

OPI has a treat in store for Fifty Shades of Grey fans with the launch of their six new limited-edition nail lacquers inspired by the movie. The Fifty Shades of Grey by OPI collection includes five different shades of gray (of course) and one rich red hue. Though I really love the red for its romantic, passionate feel, the gray shades are what caught my eye. They have glittery gray, matte gray, shiny grey and a dark charcoal. All are very beautiful and luxurious – just like the story of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Here’s a look at the collection:

  • My Silk Tie: This silky, gleaming silver has got me all tied up.
  • Romantically Involved: I’m in a deep relationship with this luscious crème red.
  • Dark Side of the Mood: This brooding, stormy charcoal is dangerously gorgeous.
  • Shine for Me: This shimmering silver with subtle blue sparkle really turns me on!
  • Cement the Deal: I’d sign anything to get my hands on this stony, cool gray.
  • Embrace the Gray: Let this chic, moody gray crème become one with you.

I’ve been sporting My Silk Tie this past week. I choose this colour because I loved the metallic sheen. It’s really pretty when it catches the light. Was Christian Grey’s tie this colour? I can’t remember from the books.


The collection will be available for a limited time only so don’t wait too long to pick up your favourite shades! The lacquers have an SRP of $11.50 each and can be purchased at professional salons and spas across the country.
