Digital Dozen does Book Genres - Romance - 50 Shades of Grey

I'm glad this week is nearly over, it's been a bit of a challenge to come up with fresh ideas each day. Plus, because I'm disorganized and I'm only doing each mani each night, I'm feeling the pressure!

Today for the prompt, I've gone with the the romance genre.  Would you believe I've never read a romance novel in my entire life.  When trying to think what to paint for this genre, I started looking at romance novel covers.  They are all hilarious.  They have a half dressed Fabio with a woman in his clutches on the cover, you really should google it, it's quite funny. 

Instead of attempting something like that, I did something abstract and a little cold looking.  I was going for 50 Shades of Grey, but when I counted all the shades across a full set of 5 fingers, I only had 34 shades of grey. It doesn't have quite the same ring to it though, does it.


  1. I'm digging the look of these!! And, like them better than if you tried to paint Fabio - LOL.

  2. Lol! Sounds like it was some interesting researching eh! I love how many shades you got into the mani! I don't think I would get that many!

  3. I think 34 shades of Grey is super impressive. How did you make that happen?
