Embrace the Grey with This Geometric Necktie Patterned Nail Art

Monochrome geometric nail art by @chalkboardnails
Despite the fact that I haven't seen or read 50 Shades of Grey, I think we all know the basic gist of the story. OPI's 50 Shades collection includes a range of six shades - five greys and a red - and I used three of them to create this nail art look today. I chose a geometric pattern, one that you might find on a necktie, which fits with what I know about the story quite well, I think.

Nail polish used:
OPI Embrace the Grey
OPI Dark Side of the Mood
OPI My Silk Tie

I began by painting my nails with two coats of Embrace the Grey. It applied smoothly and evenly, like OPI cremes usually do!

I painted on a freehand square pattern using Dark Side of the Mood, and then added the silvery squares inside them with My Silk Tie.

What do you think - Christian-esque?

Ya know, even though I haven't seen the movie or read the books, I can get behind a good geometric pattern any day of the week! What about you - have you "Embraced the Grey"?


  1. Awesome nail art! So simple but gorgeous. I loved the OPI 50 shades collection (based on what I've seen on blogs), but haven't gotten any of them yet. I did read the books when they came, but I think they're so overrated I don't want to support them by going to see them on cinema (even though I actually do wanna see the films since I suspect they're a lot better than the books). :)

  2. Really nice patterned nail art!

  3. Totally looks like something Christian would wear ;)

  4. I LOVE this classy & cool design! I don't know the story either, but these gorgeous polishes make me want to go and watch :D

  5. Awesome! I just got the minis and haven't tried them yet. I love this idea!
