Haven’t we all been scandalized at the thought of black nail polish at some time in our lives or other? Once upon a time, black polish was purely reserved for goths and punks. Today almost every other girl can be seen sporting it on her nails. Black looks chic and can be paired with almost any outfit. It forms a fantastic base colour for nail art with black nail polish and almost all glitter nail polishes gets accentuated when worn on it. So if black has evaded your nail polish collection for some reason until now, here are some options for you to choose from:
1. Essie Licorice:
Licorice is a deep black colour in a creme finish. The polish is so glossy, it almost looks like you are wearing topcoat over it. This is a characteristic of most of Essie’s polishes. Be ready to shell out the moolah though.
2. Jordana Black:
This is my all time favourite black polish. And I mean it because I have finished up three bottles till date. The polish is intense black in colour in a creme finish so that you can almost get away wearing a single coat. The finish is very glossy. Requires two coats.
3. China Glaze Cosmic:
Black is the most preferred colour to pair glitter polishes with. But here is a combo of both together. Cosmic is a black polish with loads of fine silver holographic glitter. When you are short of time and want to dress up your nails for an occasion, this is the polish to reach out for. This could be a bit sheer so wear it over a regular black.
4. Essie Over The Top:
Here is a black polish with a difference. Over The Top is a metallic nail polish grey-black shade with some tiny silver shimmers in it. This polish is good if you want to wear black but want to avoid its stark look. Requires two coats.
5. OPI Metallic For Life:
Another black and glitter combo. Metallic for Life is a black polish with silver glitters in all sizes. I love how the polish is packed with glitters and anyway, black and silver form a winning combo. Requires two coats.
6. Orly Matte Vinyl:
If you want to add something extra to your regular black, matte is the way to go. Matte Vinyl is a polish in a pure matte finish. The matte finish gives a completely different look and would look fabulous if you add some glitter over it. Requires two coats.
7. Sephora By OPI Never Enough Shoes:
One of the most unique black polishes ever. Never Enough Shoes is a black polish with fine red, gold and copper fine glitters. I love how the glitter fires up the black. Perfect to wear for an evening out. Requires three coats.
8. OPI Black Satin:
Black Satin is a metallic black – grey polish. The finish truly looks like satin and is good for those afraid to wear regular black. Requires two coats.
9. China Glaze Liquid Leather:
If black is what you wear frequently and are quite particular about quality, No harm in investing in this one. Liquid Leather is just a black creme in a super glossy finish. Requires two coats.
10. NYX Frizzy Spots:
One of my favourite black nail polishes. Frizzy Spots is a sheer black with fine and chunky silver holographic glitters. The glitters are almost blinding in sunlight. The polish is totally sheer so wear it over a regular black.
