It’s a Friday before a holiday weekend so we can be kind of silly today, right? Several months ago I started hearing about Fifty Shades of Grey and eventually I decided I had to read it. Before I started reading the book I didn’t actually know what it was about so to say the least it was an interesting read.
But anyway, this isn’t a book review, this is a nail polish blog! I used the book as my inspiration for this manicure. I’ve been wearing so many neons and crazy colors recently I wanted something more muted but still not boring. I also wanted to give this mismatched manicure another try.
For my “50” shades of grey I used Essie Power Clutch, OPI Metallic 4 Life, China Glaze Pelican Gray and Concrete Catwalk. All the nail art I did was simple but using similar colors gave it a more cohesive look than my Charlotte Observer inspired manicure.
This was a fun manicure to do and fun to wear for a short period of time but I wasn’t completely enamored by this manicure. I was definitely more enamored by the book…..
Please let me know if you’ve read Fifty Shades of Grey so I don’t feel so crazy! It seems like it’s one of those books everyone is reading but no one will admit to it. But here I am, yet again, admitting something slightly embarrassing on this blog!
There is another swatch below the jump where you can actually see my thumb nail 🙂
