OPI 50 Shades Of Grey collection - My Silk Tie

The most anticipated movie of this year probably is 50 Shades Of Grey, which is based on the best-selling novel by E.L. James. Have you read the book and are you going to see the movie? I myself have no desire to watch this story on the big screen. Honestly, I cannot quite understand why this book became such a best selling novel, but that is just my personal opinion. The movie will officially air on valentine's day and along with its release, there is a matching nail polish collection coming out from OPI. The 50 Shades Of Grey collection consists of five different grey hues with various finishes (there is creme, metallic, shimmer and glitter) and a classic red creme color.


My Silk Tie from the 50 Shades Of Grey collection is a classic silver foil polish. It is pigmented and covers with two coats. The formula is easy to work with, but this polish is prone to brush strokes. I tried to do my second coat with a light hand, but it seems I wasn't light-handed enough. I swatched this without top coat, as it dries pretty shiny on its own.


The OPI 50 Shades Of Grey collection will be available across German department stores and perfumeries throughout February. In addition to the full-size bottles, they also offer a mini set that contains all six colors from the collection.
Mister Grey will see you now!


  1. I was wanting to do a silver polish and then put some matte glitter sparingly over it. I looked around at my stash. I had two silver metallics, but didn't feel like going thru the motions of making my ridges smooth. I remembered this polish and I was going to the nail supply store so.... I was very happy with this as a base for doing matte glitter polishes. Not sure if I will use it on its own, though. I usually embellish metallics/foils with some glitter.

  2. Oh this polish surely works great as a base for nail art. It also isn't a bad polish. The formula is actually nice, but I do not like the brush strokes. But I will try to do some stamping with it :)

  3. I am not reading the books or watching the movie, but I would two or three polishes from this coleection because I am sucker of greys.

  4. The collection indeed has some nice greys. I especially like the deeper ones.
