Slowly I am making my way through the OPI Fifty Shades of Grey collection. Looking at the collection as a whole it looks a little dull and boring which is why I’m having a hard time getting excited about it. That being said, both polishes I have used from this collection previously (Dark Side of the Mood and Romantically Involved) have surprised me once I got them on my nails. My Silk Tie is no exception.
OPI’s description of My Silk Tie is priceless:
This silky, gleaming silver has got me all tied up.
I see what you did there, OPI.
My Silk Tie is a soft metallic silver that has a glow. Honestly, in the bottle I didn’t think I was going to like this polish. I figured it’d be a less awesome version of OPI Push & Shove.But I have to give it to OPI. They managed to create a polish that really does look like silk tie material.
The formula is a bit thin; I needed 3 coats. And there are brush strokes but they are much less noticeable in person than they are in my swatches.
I really do quite like this polish. It’s a different take on silver polish and I love wearing silver polish. I even used My Silk Tie in my Georgia manicure when I went to the Belk Bowl!
The Fifty Shades of Grey collection can currently be found at Ulta. I picked up the mini set which include all 6 polishes from the collection. The mini set is also available at Ulta but is less expensive on Amazon.
