It’s set to be the nail trend of next season but we say why wait until then to start wearing it. Black, glossy and polished to within an inch of its life, we think this moody manicure could be the answer to the inevitable onset of summer nail fatigue (#nomorecoralplease!)
True, at this time of year we should we be embracing the slim chance we have to do full on summer-dressing, but there’s something quite exciting about fast-tracking to the season to come. Biker jackets, slouchy cashmere jumpers – sounds good doesn’t it? The same applies to looking down and seeing your post-holiday hands sporting a luxe, dramatic, black nail polish.
Worn on long (within reason please) perfectly manicured, lady like nails, you’ll find black quite the flattering colour. Most salons have a great selection of blacks in both regular and gel formulations, but after much testing, we’d advise you go for a gel polish to get the glossiest effect. CND Shellac Polish and Nails Inc Pro both have a great selection of sultry black shades which promise to look glossy, rather than gothy. Other tops tips include massaging cuticle oil onto your nails every-night to keep the skin soft and supple, black nails and flaking cuticles do not a good look make…Go glossy now
