Nails Black as Night

There was a time when I associated black nail polish only with Goth. While it still works for those people who have that particular style, it also works for someone more on the feminine and adventurous side. On my hands I think it looks quite classy and I've seen other ladies pull off the same manicure. This is my first true black nail polish. I had a sheer black glitter nail polish by Wet 'n' Wild when I was a teenager but that's about it. One of my favorite Youtubers, Miss Glamorazzi, said great things about Revlon Colorstay nail polish and I decided to try it. I found it at Target for just under five dollars. I've had this color on for a week and it has just begun to chip. The tips did slightly wear away a few days ago but nothing bad enough to make me want to remove the nail polish (one of my least favorite tasks!). Usually the day after I've done my nails they get all messed up at work but this polish has definitely held up! I'm really impressed and I'm already thinking of the next color I want to get. In case you're wondering, I added two coats to make it completely solid but no top coat! This month I discovered two amazing nail polish brands: butterLONDON and now Revlon Colorstay. I'm telling you ladies, get in on these!

Which are your favorite nail polish brands? I have yet to try China Glaze or Orly but I'm curious.

It is so funny how things change, I was the same way, but now I think I would enjoy black nails XD
I just recently tried China Glaze when I got a manicure and I loved it! Definitely a good brand. But I'm mostly a Chanel snob, and I like Rimmel London :)


Black nails are indeed classy! I love wearing super dark polish. My favorite brand is Essie, by far. Their polishes are so thick and stay on forever! Way better than OPI.

I've tried Revlon Colorstay and it worked pretty well for me too, but I haven't tried the black on yet. I'm just not quite there! But maybe soon I'll do some black nail polish. I find that wet & wild lasts a really long time on my nails, and almost every brand chips on me. Like you I find Butter London wears a long time as well, and the colors are gorgeous.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I really appreciate it!

I have never really worn black nail polish either. I used to associate it only with Goth as well, but when my sister and all the celebs starting wearing it I wanted to. Still, I haven't tried it though. I like the way it looks on your nails! And I need to try both of those nail polishes. I've been dying for some Butter London.
