This evening, I have the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection Press Release!
There are six nail polishes in the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection, which launches in January 2015. (I feel like all of them are good staples to have because you can easily combine them with other colours. There’s nothing too crazy.)
You’d probably expect that with a name like “Fifty Shades of Grey”, this collection would be all greys, but one is red.
I’ve never read the novel by E.L. James. Have you?
Truth be told, I have no desire to read it, either. (No offence to those who really love the book. We all have different tastes, and that’s just not the type of book that I’m drawn to.)
Actually, I usually gravitate toward books that make me laugh out loud because while there are plenty of hilarious writers out there, making someone laugh out loud just by your writing and not by clever verbal delivery or funny facial expressions is pretty challenging. It’s a talent that I really admire.
Recently, I picked up “Yes Please” by Amy Poehler, which I’m really excited to dive into. (You may remember that I posted a photo on Instagram and mentioned how I redeemed a bunch of my Shoppers Optimum Points, and one of the things I got was that book.)
I’ve read a few pages of Yes Please so far, and she already had me laughing so hard because the preface is so sarcastic! 🙂 (Any other Amy Poehler fans out there?)
But enough about what I’m currently reading! Let’s get on with the nail polish already, right? 😉
There are 6 shades in the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection:
- My Silk Tie
- Romantically Involved
- Dark Side of the Mood
- Shine for Me
- Cement the Deal
- Embrace the Gray
Below is the official press release sent to me by PR:
OPI to Release New Limited-Edition Nail Lacquers
Inspired by Universal Pictures and Focus Features’
Movie Fifty Shades of Grey
OPI announced today the launch of six new limited-edition nail lacquers inspired by Universal Pictures and Focus Features’ Fifty Shades of Grey, the hotly anticipated film adaptation of the worldwide bestselling book by E L James. Available in January 2015, the collection includes five gray nail lacquers in varying shades and textures, along with one rich red hue. Fifty Shades of Grey arrives in theaters on Valentine’s Day weekend of 2015.
“The Fifty Shades of Grey book series is one of the greatest publishing sensations of all time, with more than 100 million copies sold to date. Fans have fallen in love with the characters and are eager to see them translated onscreen,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador. “The collection captures the mood, feelings and emotions of this film with assorted hues of gray, ranging from glittering and gleaming silvers to cool gray crèmes to dark charcoal. The collection also features a rich crème red to represent passion.
“Color is so much more than something to admire. The colors we choose to wear represent our personalities, our moods, our feelings,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “The collection bottles the film’s passion, luxury and power in six beautiful nail lacquers ideal for expressing sensuality through beauty.”
