The time is nigh.
There's something about Labor Day weekend and the days to follow that make me yearn for a good dark polish. It's one of my favorite parts about the seasonal switch. For me, the first week of school meant a manicure with some glossy essie polish in "wicked" slicked on. Of course, there's some good newness for the upcoming seasons, which means I will be switching my polish every single opportunity I can get.
1. Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro Nail Color in After Midnight
This is a deep inky midnight blue—super sexy and glorious.
2. Lakur by Londontowni in Cheeky Noir
This is vegan nail polish and it's gluten free. But beyond that, it's got the most gorgeous gunmetal shimmer. You'll feel like a sleek rock-n-roll chick wearing it.
3. Smith & Cult Darjeeling Darling
This is the most elegant green nail polish I have ever seen. I am obsessed. You better believe it will be in my constant rotation. It's not Christmas tree green, and it's not Kelly green either. Plan and simple, it's sophisticated.
4. Chanel Vamp
The newly reformulation Chanel Vernis in Vamp is gracing my fingertips as I type, and I can say multiple things about it. There's not a chip in sight and I'm going on Day 4! That's a marathon for dark polish standards. It's just as sexy and chic as when Uma Thurman first wore it.
5. Essie Kimono-Over
This is a classic dark purple polish. It's sophisticated, but still cheeky.
