I recently picked up some black nail polish to wear with bright-colored dresses. Surprisingly, I’ve never worn black nail polish. Dark purples that have been mistaken for black, yes, but never black. And I love it. Of course, black and I are very close, but still it’s very chic. People seem to either love it or hate it but it’s been around in a big way the past few years. I’m into it. And when the trend fades from the runway I will still hold a torch for the lovely, dark shade.
Black nail polish gets a bad rap for being too punk, too vampy, too goth, too whatever. Though I’m a big fan of the rock and roll style with black nails I don’t think that it’s as limited as people expect. Black nails can look classy and sophisticated. Make sure to keep your nails short and looking perfect, nothing will make you look like a teenager than black, chipped polish.
Yes, you can wear black nail polish in summer. Yes, it looks great with bright colors. Rejoice! If you’re tired of your regular black, try matte black instead.
