50 Shades of ?????

Hello you can probably tell from the post title, I am reading the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy  :)  I am sure that you have heard "something" about the books, so I will not give any details!! My mani was inspired by the  book......but it is G rated!!
I started with a sponge gradient using the following ....
I liked it with a matte finish...
Please excuse the chipped tips, I wore this all day and did not wrap them  :(

I used a variety of plates for images that made me think of the book....chains, lips, money, pattern for fishnet or a tie, and the letter G.....
Here it is matte...

And now with a coat of SV....

I think I really like it matte.  If you haven't read the books, don't let the things you read on the net or hear on the tv discouarge you from reading it...It is not as graphic as it is made out to be....I really enjoyed it, and now on the 2nd one  :)
I hope everyone is having a great holiday, and anyone on FB, sorry that I haven't commented on your mani' is not working for me today:)  I will give it until tomorrow and may have to make a new FB account.  Has anyone else had this problem, I can't post or comment, but can read and look at everything else!!!!  Thanks for coming by!


  1. I've really been loving your sponging manis lately (: The imagery you choose is really cool and I like both versions. The matte one is really cool but the topcoated version sure does bring out the colour!

  2. I like it top coated because it emphasizes the stamp. I think I am the only one not reading the book but I only have enough time to either do nails and look and blogs or read and nails win out. I had problems once posting on Facebook but I figured it was related to my iPad or iPhone. It fixed itself within a day.

  3. Great mani! And those books....fabulous, simply fabulous!

  4. I devoured those books!! This is a great mani representing everything :)

  5. Ohh I love the 50 Shades trilogy, I was so sad when I finished them! Really fell for Christian in the end :-) Love the Mani, so sexy! :-)

  6. I love your mani!
