Here we go again, Chanel’s Black Satin nail polish is all the rage and has been sold out all over the place and many stores have waiting lists as well. Starting today, you will get another shot at getting your hands on a bottle or two as Chanel has shipped more for the masses. (Buy as much as you can and hawk it on eBay, a few months ago bottles were selling in the hundreds!) As a teenager from the 80’s this all seems very surreal to me. We wore black nail polish and our parents hated it. Once reserved for outcasts and punk rockers is now celeb couture…go figure.
At any rate, Chanel Black Stain is about status and there are alternatives if you’re taking your nails alt-chic.
Best bargain! NYX Nails Black 27 is only $2.69 at drugstore.com.
The Lippmann Collection’s Dark Side of the Moon is a deep, dark aubergine color that won’t make your nail bed look dirrrty.
Sephora #12 is black nail polish, one of 60 colors and only $4.00.
