10 Magnificent Manicures That Are Black And Beautiful
No matter what the season, black nails are always a classic look. Because of the fact that black is a neutral color it pairs well with almost everything! It's such a versatile shade that it matches any and ever mood and occasion.
Here are a few such combinations with black that can make heads turn. Personally, I love pairing a matte black nail with gold accents. It's just such a stunning look! Black nails can be dressed up or worn plain - the possibilities are endless. Black is definitely a go-to shade, so here are 10 black manicures you'll want to wear this season.
#10 Solid Black Looks Stunning With A Matte Topcoat!
Starting off our countdown is something simple yet stunning. Normally when I think of a nice manicure, my mind immediately jumps to well-maintained, shiny nails. But even though I absolutely love that look, sometimes I just need something different. Something edgier. Darker.
On the complete other side of the spectrum is matte nail polish. Exactly what it sounds like, matte finish means a polish that's completely devoid of shine.Matte nails have been trendy for a few seasons now - ever since king of cool Alexander Wang sent matte nails down his Fall 2010 runway, the trend has been everywhere, including the runways at DKNY, L.A.M.B., and Catherine Malandrino. For these reasons solid black with a matte topcoat is the way to go.

The look combines an old classic with a new trend perfectly giving off a feel which is completely new. Try it yourself and watch your friends heads turn.
#7 White On Black Really Pops!
As seen before black nail polish can become a canvas for you to let you experiment. Using the same logic the color white provides a good contrast to black making anything white pop on a black background. In this example lovely designs have been made on the nails
Because of the black background the designs made in white are highlighted and draw attention to themselves. You can use this to your advantage and make your own unique design pop out. Get creative this is just the start.
#6 This is such a cool take on a dotticure!
No time for complex nail art but have burning desire to do something with your nails? Try this super easy 5-minute dotticure. No special skills or tools required! Though, if you have a dotting tool, that's awesome.
If not just use a toothpick or hair pin instead. Simple to make yet fascinating to look at.
#5 I love a good negative space mani.
One of this year's biggest runway trends was negative space nail art, which are manicures where your un-colored nail peeps through bold lacquers like cutouts in clothes. From complex cutouts to simple half moon-icures, the possibilities are endless to spruce up a basic paint job into strokes of genius.
Fall in love with this minimalist style just like we did. In such cases use less and show off way more. This is one style that your friends won't be able to forget.
#4 I love a good glitter fade!
These nails are SO simple and so much fun. The key is to get a really dense glitter polish. My favorite so far are these because they have great colors and they're super-packed with glitter.
Start with a black polish color. Let it dry really well. You can even put a thin topcoat over it if you want so it doesn't smudge when you add the glitter.
Using your dense glitter polish and a super-thin art brush, lay down a line of glitter polish at the tip of the nail. Using the thinnest art brush you can find, drag the glitter polish out carefully. You don't need to drag too much of the glitter because you want it to fade to almost nothing. Only go about half the length of the nail.After you've dragged it out, go back in and lay down one more line of glitter polish at the tip to make it look more dense.
#3 This is such a neat twist on the classic French mani.
My favorite variation on the look is the black French manicure, where the nail is painted matte black and the tip is glossy. The opposite looks cool too, but it's not as sophisticated, in my opinion, and that's what I love about this manicure. It's a sexy, sophisticated take on nail art, but not kitschy or girlie because it's, well, black.
The other thing I love about this look is just how easy it is to do: Paint on two coats of glossy black nail polish and let it dry.Take a matte topcoat and cover each nail with one coat, allowing it to dry fully. Then, with your black polish, paint a thin line across the tip of the nail.
You don't have to worry about being precise since the whole nail is black, and the matte polish tends to be thinner than regular nail polish, which makes for less accidental blobbing.
#2 These gold striping tape tips are lovely.
Let us introduce you to your new favorite beauty tool: nail striping tape. This ultra thin adhesive is basically to thank for the Bieber-esque explosion of nail art-it lets just about anyone achieve salon-quality precision with their at-home manicures. Case in point: striped nail art.
