Dark nail polish is my favorite winter beauty trend. Do you have a favorite color? I’m looking for a new color to try.
Love the blog and glad you kept posting after your move. Laine
Ooh, favorite nail colors. So many to choose from…let me think…
My new favorite purple is this NARS hue. It’s ashy with a deep amethyst color. I also love my old standbys NARS Purple Rain and Tokaido Express. Yeah, I like purple.
My favorite shade of dark blue is still OPI Russian Navy. It has a shiny, not-too-black color that I adore. I also like Butter London’s Royal Navy.
Other choices that are great for fall/winter? Jin Soon Jasper is a fab deep burgundy. Fingerpaints charcoal polish is a great option if your into grey.
Need your polish to last longer? I love Deborah Lippmann’s Gel Lab base and topcoat. It helps keep my polish chip-free for at least 7-10 days, sometimes longer.
Gah! I LOVE all these dark colors, but being the palest person on the planet, every time I try them I look gothic.
From a fellow ghost – I found that burgundy (but not one that is too red) is actually pretty flattering for me. I tend to look better in colors that aren’t too close to black, but the darker hues are a nice contrast to my skin. It just has to be a very pigmented color as opposed to just really dark.

Revlon Vixen is the best!
Essie’s “Wicked” will always be my go-to winter polish.
very nice alternative to winter nailpolish!
These are great picks! I should try that blue–it sounds lovely.

LOVE Russian Navy. Just got in done in with gel polish at a salon for $18 (such a steal for 2+ weeks of perfect nails!)
Big fan of Jamberry’s Stormy Seas lacquer. Really pretty navy and great 5-free lacquer. I love it so much, I started selling Jamberry so I can get it with my discount. Not trying to sell anything, so i am not including my link 🙂
