Not long ago, I posted the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection Press Release on here with plenty of information about each colour and the inspiration behind it all. (This collection launches in January 2015.)
Yesterday, I came home from work to find a box from PR with this collection!
I asked on my social media if you wanted to see the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection or the Essie Cashmere Matte Collection for 2015, since I received both on Wednesday.
At the time when I wrote this post, it looked like OPI was slightly dominating. (For those who voted to see the Essie collection, don’t worry! I’ll be featuring a Quick Look post on that soon because there was a lot of interest in it. Please stay tuned! The wait won’t be long.)
My pick just from the way the colours initially looked when I saw them in person for the first time? Shine for Me is the standout of this collection! It’s really sparkly and has blue particles that complement the grey. (I am looking forward to trying this one out and to seeing if its slight texture can be tamed with a top coat.)
Grey nail polish is sometimes challenging for me to sport, so this variety will help me narrow down the kinds that are more flattering on me. Should be interesting!
Haha, and in typical OPI fashion, there’s a red. It’s a great punch of colour in this collection, and you know that OPI has nailed the formula of red nail polishes! 😉
P.S. Whenever I see the name of this collection, the old song by fellow Torontonian, Amanda Marshall, “Shades of Gray” plays in my head. It was really popular on the radio when I was in high school, so it’s nostalgic for me! (And it has a great, strong message.)
