Paint It Black: 14 Black Nail Polish Shades for Dark Days

Winter’s creeping closer, days are getting darker…and there’s no better time to match your nails to how you feel on the inside…I mean the weather. Totally the weather. Embrace your inner goth with short, dark nails.

Whether it’s glitter, matte, leather-effect, or straight up shine you seek, here are some great dark polishes to check out…pick your poison, I’ve found ’em all.

  • OPI Nail Lacquer in “Black Onyx” 1 of 9

    This is my favorite black polish around...for the main reason that I can do a quick one coat and it dries SO super quickly that I'm out the door in ten minutes. Beat that! (Available for $10.71)

  • Zoya PixieDust Nail Polish in “Dahlia” 2 of 9

    Sprinkle a little pixie dust everywhere you go this fall. This one comes in matte. ($9)

  • Essie – “Licorice” 3 of 9

    Classic creamy, high-shine black gloss. For the sophisticated punk in you... ($8)

  • Nails Inc. – “Leather Effect” in “Noho – black” 4 of 9

    What can I say?  Leather?  It's HOT. ($11)

  • Butter – Nail Lacquer in “Gobsmacked” 5 of 9

    Beautiful, sophisticated black glitter. Tres chic. ($15)

  • Sally Hansen “Fuzzy Coat” in “Tweedy” 6 of 9

    This fuzzy polish is so much fun. Reminds me of a tweed coat for the Fall! ($9)

  • Nails Inc. “Beaded Polish” in “Embankment Black” 7 of 9

    Beaded. Polish. Love. ($11)

  • NYX – Precious Pearls 8 of 9

    Black Nail Lacquer with Black Pearls. Pearly. ($11.65)

  • China Glaze – “Black Diamond” 9 of 9

    Another one of my faves, this black nail glaze has more of a subtle shimmer rather than over-the-top glitter, for a sophisticated yet edgy look. ($4)
