Good afternoon, everyone! I know I've been MIA for several months, but I'm back today to share the new 50 Shades of Grey collection from OPI. Let's get into the swatches!
My Silk Tie is a gorgeous silver shimmer. The formula and application on this is nice, but it is on the streaky side even when dry. The image below was 2 coats.
Dark Side of the Mood is a deep grey with blue undertones that dries to a subtle pearl shimmer. Like most of the shades in this collection, the first coat goes on a bit sheer, but becomes opaque after a second coat.
Romantically Involved is your basic, medium red creme; nothing too fancy here! I used the red here a as a random brush strokes for the mani below. Otherwise, this is opaque in two generous coats.
Embrace the Gray is a medium grey creme. This goes on very sheer, but is perfect in 2-3 coats depending on your application.
Shine For Me is a clear base packed with blue and silver glitter. This can either be used as a glitter topper or can be built until you reach opacity. This was two coats over Embrace the Gray. Again, opacity with vary depending on your application technique! ;)
Lastly, Cement the Deal. This is a light grey creme that I easily confused with Embrace the Gray! These 50 shades of grey will do that to ya! ;) This was 2 generous coats.
The collection is now available for a limited time only.
Nail lacquers will retail for $9.50 ($11.50 CAN) each at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Chatters, Dillard’s, Regis, ULTA and ulta.com.
