31 day nail polish challenge: day 24: Inspired by a book: Fifty Shades of Grey

Oh no, not another manicure inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey, you might say. But yes. Because I only just recently got on the Fifty Shades wave, and I’m kinda addicted now!

I got the books for christmas, but I had no desire to read them – I actually only kept them because I couldn’t exchange them. And I certainly had no intention to see the movie. I actually found it embarrassing to have the books on my shelf and I kept them in the back because I was afraid people would judge me for it. But as it turns out, I only felt that way because of what people had said about the books and the movie, because when I actually read the books, they were not at all as bad and embarrassing as people had said! They were actually pretty good!

Read my reviews of the books here, here and here.

A friend of mine came home from the cinema and told me that the movie was really great, so I surrendered and read the books – I really wanted to know what the fuss was about. And once I picked up the first one, I didn’t stop reading until I closed the third one. I read all three books in 4 days – crazy days. I even went to the cinema twice to see it – I had a free ticket, so why not use it to watch Jamie Dornan for 2 hours?

Anyways, I’m getting off topic. I know that many people has their take on nail art inspired by the books and movie, this is mine:

Sorry for the shakey picture – I didn’t realise until it was too late to take another.

I started by painting each nail a different shade of Grey (get it?). I actually considered leaving it like this, because I think the ombre-effect across your nails looks pretty cool, but I decided to take it further with some striping tape and a gradient with all 5 colours.

I like how it is a different colour that shines through the gradient on each nail.

    Wauw, det ser faktisk helt vildt fedt ud! Begynder efterhånden at overveje, om jeg skulle prøve at lege med noget af det der tape selv, for det er klart de looks du laver, som jeg synes bedst om (:

      Tak! 🙂 jeg gav noget i stil med 3 pund for 10 ruller på Amazon dengang 🙂
