"Dark Side of the Moon" is a "brooding, dark stormy charcoal" which was opaque in 2 easy coats. No complaints from me about this colour!

For nail art, I decided to make triangle and tie-shaped nail decals with "My Silk Tie", described as a "silky, gleaming silver" and was streaky on the first coat, but looks seamless enough upon second coat.

If you're wondering how to make your nail decals, just paint a roughly rectangular area of nail polish on to a sandwich baggie and once dry give it layer of top coat. Then, just cut out whatever shapes you want! Using an exacto knife, I cut out some triangles and two ties and then using tweezers, gently placed them on my nail.

For the ties, I hand-painted the hearts and stripes with a nail art brush "Dark Side of the Mood" and "Romantically Involved". I drew in some handcuffs and my manicure was complete!

Planning on seeing the premiere of "50 Shades of Grey" this Friday?
