6 Black Nail Polishes That Will Feed Your Dark Soul This SeasonNovember 05, 2018
Black nail polish is that one beauty trend my mother always frowned at at while I was growing up — and much to her dismay, it’s always been one of my favorites. It wasn’t until I got older that I realized I loved the colorless chroma so much because it really made me feel like I was bringing out my inner edginess with confidence. If black polish also makes you feel a little cooler (and maybe a little more like a witch!), I rounded up six of my favorites that are must-trys, with various textures and pigmentation for the perfect black mani every time.
Our favorite OG classic, Essie Licorice is the ideal product for the black-polish beginner. It’s your classic satin-black pigment that looks just as good with one coat as two, and is really pretty when you finish it off with a clear gloss.
Black Holy by Floss Gloss is my favorite black polish to pair with a glitter — like a clear polish with thick gold or silver flecks. I guarantee once you try this, you’ll be hooked.
Jinsoon Absolute Black is another black lacquer crowd pleaser. This polish is extremely creamy and rich and offers tons of coverage.
If you’re looking for an everyday black polish, Butter London Union Jack Black will have you covered. This polish is lightweight but offers a nice amount of pigmentation.
Black on Black by Sinful Colors is the perfect black polish to pair with a matte topcoat. It’s incredibly powerful on it’s own, but one coat of a matte glaze makes your nails instantly double-take worthy.
My last go-to black polish is Lauren B. Beauty in Paparazzi. Not only is it non-toxic and vegan, it also captures that jet-black color so vibrantly you’ll want to use it over and over again.
