OPI Fifty Shades of Grey

Flash back to Spring 2012. I’m listening to Jennifer Hutt on Sirius XM Stars as she spends an entire hour asking people to call in if they’ve read some book called Fifty Shades of Grey. Apparently all the mom’s in her Jersey suburb were reading the Twilight fan fiction and calling it “mommy porn.”

Six months later everyone and their mother was talking about it so, of course, I gave in and read the first book. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that the writing is awful. AW-FUL! Regardless, come February, the X-rated phenomenon will come to the big screen and OPI has partnered with the film to bring us six inspired shades.

I’ve long been a fan of grey polish, even after it was bastardized into griege and griolet, and happily welcome new versions into my collection. So, even if I’m not jazzed about the movie, I’m all in on the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey collection.

NARS Holiday 2014

The first thing that caught my eye about the NARS Holiday 2014 collection nail polishes, was the packaging. The graphic print, that is an adaptation of architectural designer Chris Kabatsi’s design, feels like a futuristic snowflake. The juice inside is just as captivating. Three unique shades that range from warm and toasty to crisp and cool to sleek and icy. A true mix of everything winter and the holidays have to offer.
