Inspired by the new Fifty Shades Of Grey collection, I made a skittle manicure!

Index - My Silk Tie with a Romantically Involved dotticure. Middle is a gradient using Cement The Deal, Embrace The Gray and Dark Side Of The Mood. On My ring finger I used two coats of Shine For Me and on my pinky is Romantically Involved.

Honestly, this gives me a 50's vibe instead of a "Fifty Shades" vibe, lol! But I really like it, all the polishes work so well together.

OPI - Fifty Shades Of Grey collection swatches review

I am so excited to show you these swatches! Of the new OPI Fifty Shades Of Grey collection! Not that I'm a fan of the books, I read them because everyone was reading them and I wanted to know what they were talking about. But honestly, without giving away any serious spoliers, it just got a bit too sappy for me in the end, lol :p

But! OPI has made a pretty amazing nail polish collection inspired by the books and the up coming movie, so at least something great came out of it ;) I'm a huge fan of gray in general, and I love gray nail polish, but I have very few gray polishes, so I am very excited for this collection. The quality of all polishes is great as always, two coats were enough for full opacity for all, they dried quickly and shiny. These swatches are with two coats + top coat. 

You can see my video review here:


And then you can look at some more pictures below!

Like I said in the video, I don't have much to say about the two lightest grays, I just love them! And love how they are cool toned, makes them look so elegant.

A little darker than Cement The Deal, but still cool toned and gorgeous.

This is the darkest of the grays, and can you see in these close ups that it actually has a bit of shimmer in it? It's not just a dark gray creme polish, the shimmer makes it come alive on the nails. This is my favorite of the entire collection!

Don't you just love how dark gray is still edgy like black, just more sophisticated?

I know I called this a glitter polish, but I actually think I'd call it more of a silver polish filled with blue glitter. Anyway, it's amazing, opaque in just two coats and I have nothing like this in my collection.

This is my least favorite polish in the collection. In my opinion it's a pretty standard silver with lots of visible brush strokes. Not a fan... I've seen some people who love it though, so I guess it's just all about personal preference! But then again, isn't everything? ;)

I did these swatches without top coat to show you just how shiny these polishes are, isn't it gorgeous?

The thing about this one though, is that it looks much more red in the swatches than it does in real life. On my nails it actually looks almost like a dupe for OPI - Lost On Lombard. I did a comparison in the video, and as you can see they are pretty similar, only Romantically Involved is a little brighter. I still love it though, Lost On Lombard is one of my favorite red polishes, so I love this one as well :)

OPI - Embrace The Gray swatch nail art glitter gradient manicure nail art

I unfortunately didn't join in the previous PI challenge, it was in the middle of Christmas, and I was simply busy relaxing ;) This week's challenge though, I'm back! The theme today is "Safe and Sound" "the mani you do when you have to get it just right and don't want to take any chances - so basicly your comfort-zone man".

OPI - Embrace The Gray swatch nail art glitter gradient manicure nail art

My safe, go-to manicure, is a glitter gradient. It's easy, quick, and pretty much always turns out great! I used OPI - Embrace The Gray as my base and Picture Polish - Mardi Gras for the glitter gradient. I like how the colorful glitter just adds a little extra to the grey nail polish.

Elegant Grey Stamping

I was sent a couple of stamping plates from the Born Pretty Store to try out. The designs are really pretty, so I was excited to try them! I'll admit I was sceptical to the quality, they are quite cheap, but I was pleasantly surprised!

I used my big squishy stamper and not a special stamping polish. I used OPI - Dark Side Of The Mood, which is actually slightly transparent, so a more opaque polish, or a regular stamping polish would probably work even better.

I really LOVE this design! It's from the plate BP-17, which has three more beautiful designs. For my base I used OPI - Cement The Deal, stamped with OPI - Dark Side Of The Mood (like I said) and finished it with a matte top coat. Matte grey nails are just so gorgeous, it looks so elegant!

On a side note; yes, these two polishes are from the new Fifty Shades Of Grey collection, and swatches will be coming soon!

IsaDora - Holiday 2014 Mesmerizing collection swatches review

More IsaDora swatches! Yes, I am quite a fan of IsaDora polishes ;) Today I have their Holiday 2014 collection - Mesmerizing. It consists of three beautiful polishes. I'll admit that none of them really spoke to me in the bottle, but on the nail I am in love with every single one. You can see my swatch video below to hear my thoughts, and see more pictures in this post.

A gorgeous aubergine colored purple shimmer. It could remind you a little of Purple Prune from their fall collection, but Nuit is slightly more warm toned.

This must be the most gorgeous gold polish ever! It looks like a mix of gold, silver and bronze shimmer, mixed together it turns out the most beautiful gold shade.

This was my biggest surprise. It's a more pink leaning red that I would not have picked as a holiday color, but some how it just works! I love this as a holiday red, and wore it for an entire week.
