I'd love to wear black nail varnish, but how do I do it?
Black nail varnish is often associated with the Goth, rock and punk scenes, and has long been the bête noire of nail technicians. However, we weren't counting on the help of fashionistas who have made black varnish the latest must-have.
Whether during the day or evening, in town or on the red carpet, black nail varnish has become a permanent fixture in our colour scheme.
So, is black nail varnish for me?
Absolutely! Summer 2012 may well be the most colourful season yet with its fluorescent and pastel nail varnishes, but you can rock any look with some black varnish instead. It's dark, but by no means dreary, and will add a chic touch to any outfit.
The golden rules:
Black nail varnish needs to be carefully used. Although it is not a typically summery colour, black varnish will stand out just as much as a colourful shade and will always make an impact!
To get the perfect black nails, we suggest you follow these steps:
- You should wear black varnish on short, perfectly filed nails.
- Black nail varnish needs daily upkeep. Red varnish can cope with a little chip here and there, but black varnish can be ruined by just the tiniest blemish.
