Fall beauty trend: Dark (not black) nails

Remember last fall’s run on Chanel’s Black Satin nail polish, which led to $200+ eBay prices and even the occasional theft?

While things probably won’t be quite as extreme this season, the dark nail is definitely back—this time with color. Instead of black, think inky purple (Blacker Laquer from Revlon’s Dark Pleasures line), navy blue (Russian Navy from OPI), deep burgundy (Material Girl from Essie), espresso (Hard Edged from Rimmel), and even deep aqua (Las Vegas from NYX).

To perfect the chic look (and to avoid scaring small children), keep nails short to medium in length. And keep your lacquer handy for touchups, as chips will be much more obvious than with lighter shades.

Pick up your fave shade and get in touch with your dark side!
