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.

I’m obsessed!


A few months ago my boyfriend and I started watching the TV-series, Bones. I’ve never actually seen it before, I’ve always been a fan of NCIS (the original one) and I always thought Bones was a bad knock-off of that show. But my boyfriend has seen some episodes here and there throughout the years and told me it was good, so I had to try. We decided to start from the very beginning and really get to know the characters. Now we have just started season 7, and OH. My God I’m addicted! It is so good! It’s not the cases that appeal to me, except for a few, but the characters. There is one for every taste and you can identify with them at different times in your life. My favorite characters have changes as I’ve moved along in the series, but here in season 7 I must say that right now my favorites are Brennan, Hodgins and Booth.

We have waited since the beginning, we’ve seen Booth and Brennan fall in love and waited for the moment when they both realized and started dating. And then they know and don’t do anything about and we cry (yes, I’m that kind of viewer). Then they actually get together and then they just skip ahead 5 months??? What is that about?? I wanted to see how the other persons reacted to the news of their pregnancy etc. Was this what we were waiting for?? Now I’m up to the part where Christine is born and it has gotten a little better again, but the first 9 or 10 episodes of this season were a little tough to get through because the cases were not too exciting and, truthfully, I was mad. From now on neither my boyfriend knows what happens, so I’m excited to see how the story develops further on. What do you know, before realizing we will actually have caught up and will have to wait for new episodes to air. DREAD!

Have you seen it? What do you think of the series? NO SPOILERS, PLEASE 😉
