Top 3 Black Acrylic Nail Polishes For the Season – Revealed!

Associated with power, mystery and elegance, the color black is the strongest of all shades. Necessary for adding a rich depth and variation to the other colors, black is also believed to be an absence of color – what’s left when every hue has left the room. However, others value it in its own right, arguing that what is left after the absence of other colors, is darkness and not black. 

Whatever you believe, black invokes feelings of strength, imagination and seductiveness – think of that LBD hanging in your closet, and how you feel when you slip into (or out of) it.

With the power to boost self-confidence, and increasing the sense of possibilities to come, black is an excellent choice for a nail polish. Edgy and with hints of rebelliousness, I love black nails and here are my top three choices. 

 

1)  OPI Nail Polish – Black Onyx

What Makes it Great

This slick, sleek polish is uber chic, offering a door to the rich, deep mysteries at the heart of the universe. The light absorbing solidity of Black Onyx looks elegant, sophisticated and so, so cool. Worn matte or high gloss, OPI’s polish suits any occasion, day or night, and complements every outfit from casual to haute couture. I wore it everywhere for a full two weeks before the tiniest chip developed.

Where it Could be Improved

This polish definitely requires a base coat to prevent staining.

The Final Verdict

Chic, sophisticated and super cool, this black polish from OPI is, quite simply, awesome. You can thank me later!

2) ZOYA Nail Polish – Raven 

What Makes it Great

Bearing Zoya’s usual quality, Raven is an intense, satin black, with the subtlest shimmer of silver throughout. Echoing the vast depths of the Milky Way, you could fall into this star dusted nail finish, emerging only as a last resort. Raven is simply glorious as a matte polish, stunning with a high gloss top coat, and I was so pleased that its longevity matched its good looks as I drew close to the third week of my manicure. 

Where it Could be Improved

It’s a little gloopy straight out of the bottle but a couple of drops of remover and a gentle palm roll to disperse any trapped bubbles, and it was spot on.

Softly sparking, this superior black polish is the Little Black Dress of manicures!

3) Cirque Colors Nail Polish – Memento Mori

What Makes it Great

Named Best Black Polish by Simply Nailogical, this rich, opaque polish deserves its place in my top three. The vegan, cruelty free, non-toxic formula demonstrates that, as rebellious as this appears, there is, in fact, a caring, kindly black hidden underneath. Hard wearing, this polish lasted a good two weeks before developing the tiniest chip, and it was with regret that I removed it, but it will return!

Where it Could be Improved

As with many strong colored polishes, make sure you apply a base coat if you want to prevent any nail bed stains.
