I wanted to do this today. I've seen it on others and I like it although not sure what I think about it on myself. I think my bf would hate it lol. Do you guys do it- what do you think when you see someone wearing this color- yay or nay?!

can look good, can look trashy. I think the key is keeping it as chip-free as possible and having slightly longer than nail bed length nails to carry it off.

its hard to maintain but if it's just for one night or you're happy redoing it then for sure I'd go for it

If you keep nails shortish and square it can work really well. Totally agree on keeping it chip free!

I love black nail polish. I keep my nails short and squared and well maintained which is why I can pull off black polish so well. But it can come across a little wicked and look trashy in some instances. I think you should try it out for a few days with a high gloss like top coat to show it off some more and if you dont like it then, dont wear it. I think many people can pull off black...its just portrayed by the attitude you have wearing it.

I wear it maybe 2-3 times a year, and not for very long, because it chips and looks tacky!

John hates black polish... But he's a-okay with LPAD on me... WTF! Anywho! I like it... If all else, I wear it on my toes. It can be a witch to get off though!

i'd say try it out. and if you don't want to wear black, get a dark purple like opi's midnight in moscow. that's what i wear... it's a really dark purple but looks black. so if someone's like, 'oh wow. black nailpolish!,' you can say, 'no, it's purple!' lol

I think black polish can be very beautiful and chick depending on the clothes you wear.

i think it depends on your style and overall attitude. if you have a dash of rocknroll in your veins, go for it

like the other said, just keep it chip free, and i cannot recommend you enough you use a base before or it will stain a bit your nails for a few days.

I love black nail polish. I usually wear a very dark brown that looks black on my fingers and toes.

I love black polish, I have it on right now actually. It has a little bit of a sparkle in it too. I agree that with black nails you have to have them short or it looks trashy.
