Yes, we know. The hotly anticipated 50 Shades of Grey movie, due out on Valentines' Day next year, is a big deal. The new trailer is there to remind us in case it's gone off our radar.

Make-up brands have also been doing their bit to keep our interest piqued. Now, joining the likes of Make Up For Ever's '50 shades' inspired makeup collection is OPI's new nail polish collection, also named after the movie.

The six new polishes will be sold as individual bottles or in a set of mini-bottles. Of course, the shades are mostly grey: five out of the six range from light, silvery greys to charcoal. One bottle of big, bold red injects a big punch of sexy and is probably a nod to that red room.

As with all OPI nail colours, these polishes each come with their own suitably twee names too – there's Dark Side of the Mood, Cement the Deal and Embrace the Gray, to name just three.

The collection will be released on 1 January 2015.
