If your mom never let you out of the house with the black nail polish you attempted to hide on your way to middle school every morning, there’s a recurring trend that’s sure to turn heads this season and fulfill all of your dark impulses.
For a glamorous biker chic look, try short dark nails with a glossy finish this winter.
The Lippman Collection features a series of short-drying and long-lasting nail colors. We recommend the fashionable Fade to Black, which showed up at the Zac Posen fall runway show, or the more subdued Pump Up the Jam, a deep, shimmery brownish purple.
Of course, it’s a tricky style to pull off since your nails will have to look virtually flawless underneath these gleaming dark tones. One chip and you’re faced with a do-over – unless, that is, you try Sula Paint & Peel Nail Polish. The polish has a fast-drying formula which makes touch-ups a breeze, and if you bore easily, they’ll peel right off. Try it in Midnight or Royal for a more bluesy adaptation of this rocker look.
