NAIL POLISH | OPI 50 Shades of Grey Collection–Swatches, Review and Nail Art with “Romantically Involved”

I resisted reading the 50 Shades of Grey series until it got to the point where in order to have any sort of opinion about the books, I needed to read them myself. All I can say about the books is that I will never again subject my brain to the this adult Twilight fan fiction, BUT the nail polishes I did enjoy. There are 6 shades in the collection, most of which are well, GREY with the exception of deep creme red called “Romantically Involved”. Not one of my favourite names for a polish, but hey. The books always talk about Ana’s cheesy inner goddess so why not?

If you’re going to wear a shade like OPI’s Romantically Involved*, a set of metal handcuffs pairs quite nicely as the ultimate Valentine’s Day accessory.

In all seriousness though, this really is a wonderfully rich red that was opaque in 2 coats. Since this red is a bit darker, there is a definite air of sophistication when wearing it.

For 50 SoG nail art, lacy corseted nails seemed appropriate so using a black nail art striper and OPI – My Signature is DC I drew on some makeshift laciness and sealed in the design with top coat.
