Dark Nails Decoded

Afraid of the dark? Get over it! Nail colors (especially dramatic, dark hues) isn't a long term commitment, so have fun with your manicures. This season that means slicking on a bold sophisticated lacquer!

Color of Choice:
Bordeaux by essie
$9
essie.com

The deep red hue worked on all skin tones- not too dramatic for fair skin, makes olive skin glow and has enough sheen to make the deepest complexion pop!

4 Tips to Nail the Chicest Manicure

I Keep Them Short
Long dark nails are a bit 'Rocky Horror Picture Show'. Trimming nails 1/4 inch past the fingertip makes strong hues like Bordeaux look sleek & modern- appropriate for every and any occasion.

II Be Well Rounded
Hard edges can look severe (and extremely easy to chip). Instead, file nails into an elegant almond shape or a "squoval".

III Take Your Time
Dark shades dry slowly, so to avoid smudges set at least 45 minutes to an hour aside for your mani-pedi.

IV Stay Smooth
Since these colors draw attention to your hands, keep those jagged cuticles in check with constant moisturizing.

I love bordeax. It's an old stand by for me. I've been wearing it for about 4 years.
