Try Dark Nail Polish
What You Want
A sophisticated manicure that has an edge.
How to Get It
- Choose dark blue or gray with a touch of shimmer. While matte polish tends to look flat and dull after a day or two, shimmery formulations stay shinier longer. "Shimmer also makes a deep color softer and easier to pull off," says Skyy Hadley, owner of the As U Wish Nail Spa, in Hoboken, New Jersey.
- For a neat look, trim your nails short and file them flat on top with rounded edges. "An eighth of an inch over the tip of your fingertip provides enough space to show off the color," says Hadley.
- Apply a base coat, two layers of color, and a topcoat (or have a pro do it, since a tidy paint job is key to this look). Reapply a clear topcoat every two days to maintain the shine and prevent chipping. Dab over the tips to seal the edges.
