8 black polishes to coat your nails in
Black nails are every beauty girls dream. They’ve reached the cult status of a cherry-red lip, and are perfectly acceptable to wear 365 days a year - just ask the current crop of cool girls.
But let’s talk specifics. Yes, there really is a black for everybody. And yes, there is more than one shade of black polish. Thank you, beauty gods!
If you’re worried black tips aren’t your ‘thing’, you’re probably just choosing the wrong shade of black. With winter approaching, now is the perfect time to get on board the noir nail train. Here, eight of the best dark polishes…
OPI Core Collection
Nobody does dark fingertips quite like OPI. Paint your nails in something like Black Onyx or Lincoln Park After Dark and send your it-girl status skyrocketing.
Take a walk on the dark side with Essie Darks in Licorice. Like the blue-black of octopus ink, it’s a little softer than a true black, but just as alluring.
Chi Chi Crackle Nail Polish
Hello, texture! Make things interesting and dress up your nails with Chi Chi Crackle Nail Polish.
Sea Siren Midnight Moves
The créme de la créme of black lacquers, Sea Siren Midnight Moves is seriously glossy and equally hard to resist. Don’t be afraid of the dark: coat your nails in this vegan-friendly polish.
OPI Nordic Collection
Inspired by the northern lights of Finland, the OPI Nordic Collection is a must for dark-tipped lovers. With names like Ice-Bergs and Fries, Viking in a Winter Vonderland, Skating on Thin Ice-Land, Suzi Has a Swede Tooth and Thank Glogg It's Friday!, how can you possibly say no?
Okay, fine. You caught me. The INTENSAE Nightclubbing polish isn’t technically black, but admit it: you’re glad I went there. So. Pretty.
Chi Chi Pearl Bead Manicure – Black Diamonds and Pearls
While I adore a glossy black mani (seriously, ask my nail technician), sometimes it’s nice to jazz it up a little. Enter, Chi Chi Pearl Bead Manicure in Black Diamonds. Just try to find a cooler nail look.
Rimmel Velvet Matte Nail Collection
Matte nails? Ah, yes please! Dare to be different with the Rimmel Velvet Matte Nail Collection in Midnight Kiss. So front row.
