I have a style dilemma. I know I said I was cured. But. Whatever.

I need to know before I blow $3.00. Black fingernails? Cool or not? Here's a picture from the web (that's not my hand, I swear!) to help you decide:


I am seeing reputable cosmetic brands selling various shades of black nailpolish and I have secretly always wanted to try this look. Seriously. Is it too trendy? Or just stupid on someone over the age of 14?

Please, I need advice from my loyal fanbase! (Haha, all four of you!) Tell me, yes or no?

If you want my honest opinion here it is. I love the look only if the polish looks impeccable. If it is chipped and rough looking then you might as well develope a drug and alcohol problem and starting hanging with Paris and Lindsey.
Smooches!

i agree with olivia. it is trendy right now, but what i appreciate that it is done classier this time around. so i would say do it for a day or two...maybe for a night out with a cute outfit.

I wouldn't do the black; I don't think it is the look you are going for. A dark red or maybe a chocolate that has some shimmer in it, which would look classic and trendy.

yes!!!
oh yes.
I have always wanted to have black nail polish but my skin tone is too dark for it to stand out so I settle for maroon or dark purple
But yes! go for it atleast for once. And if you hate it, atleast it's not a tatoo right?

To me, it's not pretty.

My nails are always black from just being a guy who likes working outside digging in the dirt, so take it from me- it ain't too pretty! I don't want a creepy, gothy wife!!!! Who is my cute pink girly-girl wife turning into? You aren't going to start collecting Hello Kitty stuff, listeing to Emo music and cutting yourself now, are you? Ha!
Love you!

I'm not crazy about black either, too goth. It can't be the least bit chipped. But it certainly wouldn't hurt to try it. It's easy enough to fix if you don't like it.

Thumbs down on black nail polish. Waaaaay too Beetlejuice.

Go for dark red or maroon, much classier.
