I don’t often wear dark nail colors, but when I do, I tend to choose hues in rich burgundy or deep plum. Jewel tones are always in for fall, but lately I’m digging deep shades of blue—more midnight and dark navy blue, and not too black. I love how these blue shades pair well with neutral clothing such as grey, white and camel. Sure, plum, burgundy and charcoal are still great, but deep blue adds a little more edge and when you find the right color for your skin tone it looks chic and sophisticated. Of course, I like this color on short, not too round and not too square nails, so keep that in mind if you want to wear this for work or special events.
Here’s some of my picks (from left to right in the photo above):
1. Tenoverten in Commerce ($18) — A deep navy that looks nice on all skin tones.
2. L’Oreal in After Hours ($5.99) — Deep midnight blue that is edgy and dark, perfect for holiday party time.
3. Formula X in Wunderkind ($10.50) — A deep bluish grey with hints of shimmer.
4. Essie in Style Cartel ($8.50) — More of a deep cobalt, this blue adds some fun to hands.
