50 Shades of Grey Mani

I've heard about 50 Shades triology from fellow bloggers. I was really curious, so I thought I should give it a try... Wow, that book is a sure pageturner... I loved it! Eventhough I questioned it sometimes, I must admit, it was one hell of a book...

So, this mani is inspired from 50 Shades of Grey... :)

I used Essence Galactic Black, Flormar Supermatte M157, Rimmel Man Overboard and Rimmel Grey Matter respectively... On my thumb, I had China Glaze Liquid Leather, but you cannot see it in the pictures. Because, my thumb is always the first one to peel and break, so it never catches up its friends lenght-wise so I hide the naughty little fella from the universe... That's it. Enough said... :)

By the way, this is my first ombre mani, and I really liked it. I loved how the colors shifted from dark to light. And I'm thinking of making an ombre gradient... Any time soon... :)

Well, after using 2 coats of each color, I didn't stop and went through my stamping plate folder to see if I had any images that represented the novel... :) 

I found the champagne Ana and Christian drank on Cheeky CH9...
I found the zipper of Ana's dress on BM202... (Believe me, there were many zippers undone in the book, this is just one of them... )
I had to use the BM311 plate for the Love and the book page image...
And finally I used the little hearts from Cheeky CH9...

By the way, I stamped with Konad Special Nail Polish in Silver, which really frustrated me... :(

Wow, looking at the pictures, I think I shouldn't have stamped... The plain ombre version was much better... This looks like 50 shades of fail... Well, that's the moral of the story, anyway... :)



  1. I like the stamps and how they relate to the book. I really want to read it. It looks so good.

    1. Thank you... :) You should read it!!! :)
