There has been a whole lot of excitement about the new collection from OPI that’s inspired by the book and movie Fifty Shades of Grey and ever since I first wrote about it at the beginning of November, it has remained one of the most clicked posts. Now, for your viewing pleasure, I have the Opi 50 Shades of Grey swatches for you, and it has to be said, they are seriously lovely.
Opi 50 Shades of Grey Swatches
So the collection comprises 5 grey shades and a red. There had to be a red in there because there couldn’t be a sexy nail polish collection without a red could there?
We have My Silk Tie, Romantically Involved, Dark Side of the Mood, Shine for Me, Cement the Deal and Embrace the Grey. I have always loved grey polishes – they are super chic – and I love them even more now!
My Silk Tie:
“This silky, gleaming silver has got me all tied up”. This is a really pretty silver but my least favourite as I don’t love the way metallic shades like these always streak unless you are a serious nail pro. As you know, I am not.
“I’m in a deep relationship with the luscious red creme”. I adore this shade – it is so rich and glossy and has a touch of brick in it to bring it down from pillar box red. Very classy.
Dark Side of the Mood:
“This brooding, stormy charcoal is dangerously gorgeous”. This is the favourite of the collection for me. I am obsessed with this super dark bluish grey. It’s so easy to apply and looks super luxurious.
Shine for Me:
“This shimmering blue with subtle blue sparkle really turns me on!”. This is even more stunning in real life. Love it.
Cement the Deal:
“I’d sign anything to get my hands on this stony cool gray”. This is another favourite for me – it bright, light and beautiful.
Embrace the Grey:
“Let this chic, moody gray creme become one with you”. Another cool. bluey grey but much deeper… and a beauty.
I am so impressed with these Opi 50 Shades of Grey swatches. I think this collection is going to be a real winner. I really had trouble deciding which one to keep on. I wanted to go with Dark Side of the Mood but Romantically Involved won because it’s Christmas!!
