Mr Grey Will See You Now

Dahlia Nails
Fifty Shades nails today in honour of the film's release. I was really intrigued by the lovely Rebecca's post over at Flails and Nails yesterday. It got me thinking about why I enjoy the books so much, especially when I have to agree that they are poorly written. I'm still not entirely sure. Before you start, no, it's not the sex (OK not just the sex)! I cannot deny that I am drawn to the elusive Mr Grey. What's not to like? He's rich, he's powerful, he's possessive, a little bit stalkerish, OK he likes hitting women who look like his mum which is a bit weird but he always makes sure you're 'taken care of' if you know what I mean! With all the press around the film I am quickly learning that not everyone has the same feelings for Christian but hey, each to their own I guess! Whatever your pleasure, here are my FSOG nails...

Reasons for the nails if you aren't familiar with the story:

Thumb - 'We Aim To Please' Said by Christian to Ana a few times during the book. The most famous/most used quote from the book is 'Laters baby' but it's one that I absolutely HATE, especially when I try to say it in an American accent. It just doesn't sit right with me. 

Index - Rope Heart With Christian being into BDSM this seemed fitting, especially as he visits Ana at her job in a hardware store to buy rope among other things.

Middle - Silver Silk Tie On the cover of the novel as well as being a running feature of the series. Christian uses his woven tie to bind Ana's hands during one of their sessions. 

Ring - Biting Lip Ana has a habit of biting her lip which drives Christian wild. One of my favourite lines from the book: 'I want to bite that lip'.

Little - Key The key to Christian's playroom. No it's not for his Xbox!

I used the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey collection to create this mani. I swatched them here for you in December and would highly recommend them even if you aren't a fan of the series as there are some great colours in there. 

Well I will be off to watch the film on Sunday with one of my gal pals. The reviews have been a bit negative so far but I'm just excited to watch Jamie Dornan for a couple of hours. Watched The Fall yesterday, all eleven episodes, and cannot wait to see his face a bit more! 

On a side note, I came across this article yesterday and it made me laugh so hard that I thought I would share with you all. It's from Marie Claire and be warned, it is not one to read in the office! 

What do you guys think about the FSOG phenomenon? If they aren't your thing, what about the shades from OPI?
