I think it may be weird that I can say this, everyone that I know personally has read the Fifty Shades of Grey book trilogy that was published back in May of 2011.

I know I’ve read it, and what I mean is that I read the whole trilogy in one (1) week!

In August 2011, I was at the airport in Phoenix coming from a pleasurable business trip and I was in a magazine/book store and saw that they had the first Fifty Shades of Grey book so I decided to go ahead and see what all the hype was about this series.

While I was waiting for my flight, I started reading it. I didn’t care who was around me that could see the book cover. Everyone was saying that this trilogy is soft porn for women. Who cares is all I can say!

While I was on the plane and in the air, I kept reading. Seriously, I’ve NEVER read anything that I couldn’t put down.

The guy next to me saw what I was reading and kept asking me questions about the book. I was trying to be nice for as long as I could until I had to ask a flight attendant if they had any ear plugs. I think he got the hint when I put them bad boys in.

Once I was done with the first book,  I went straight to Target to get the second one and the last book. I already knew that I was going to finish them. No reason to make a separate trip to get the third book.

Fast forward 3 years and finally they released the Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer! BUT we still have to wait until February 13, 2015! Say it aint so!!

I don’t think that I’ve ever in my life knew what I was going to be doing for Valentines Day even the week of. But I surely can tell you without a doubt, God willing, if I’m alive,  I know exactly what I’ll be doing for Valentines Day next year! That’s 6 months out! I know that I’m not the only woman in the world that’s thinking the same damn thing.

Once I saw the Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer aka teaser, it inspired me to do something fabulous with my nails! Being who I am, I turned to my favorite Zoya nail polishes and picked out the shades: Harley, Tao, London, and Carmen.

Zoya’s Harley, Tao, and London are all some type of Grey shade, so I wanted to do a ombre effect and use Zoya’s Carmen as my accent color.

I chose Carmen being that it’s a true red. Why red you ask??

I wanted the red to represent the infamous Christian Grey’s RED ROOM. HELLO!!

I also added a skeleton key nail art sticker to my accent nail to give it just a little more spice.

With the inspiration of Fifty Shades of Grey, this was created!
