Valentine's Day Cupid Nail Art with OPI Fifty Shades of Grey

Valentine's Day Cupid Nail Art with OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Featuring O.P.I. Romantically Involved and My Silk Tie from the Fifty Shades of Grey collection.


Random irrelevant fact: I hate the Fifty Shades books. I would rather read about the chemical composition of earwax and bogies.
Despite this, I really like O.P.I.'s Fifty Shades of Grey collection. There are some greys, a beautiful red, a silver and a teal blue. I will swatch the whole lot for you shortly. More on the polishes I used below.

For the base colour, I used Romantically Involved, a warm red creme. It was decently pigmented, and I applied two coats as usual. For the stamping, I used My Silk Tie, a silvery shimmer. It was difficult to stamp with this polish because it is on the sheerer side and I kept missing bits of Cupid when I tried to pick up the image. For the stamping, I used the Cheeky Jumbo European Romance place.   My Silk Tie gives me brushstrokes on its own, and it cannot be stamped, so I am wondering what to do with this polish.
Within minutes of the base colour drying, this happened. Nice.
