Three-For-All: Dreamy Dark Nails

The dark nail trend has flourished and faded and flourished again ever since Chanel introduced their iconic Vamp shade in 1994. You can no longer buy the first favorite of vampy vixens and gothic-minded fashionistas (although Chanel's Madness shade, $19, comes pretty darn close), but the dark berry nail trend is again on an upswing, so there are plenty of deep, daring shades out there.

The Shining Star: Creative Nail Dessign's Baroque shade ($6) is a plummy polish the pros would pick. The deep boysenberry shade has a hint of pearly shimmer, so mistakes are less noticeable (read: you can do digit detail on the train and arrive at your final destination with a dry, flawless-looking manicure).

The Bargain Buy: E.L.F.'s polish in Dark Red only costs a buck, so when the trend inevitably goes the way of culottes and cutouts, you won't have to feel guilty about dropping a lot of dough. Take a trendy test drive with this matte polish, but be prepared to apply a couple coats to get the desired almost-black effect.

The Classic With a Twist: Essie is best known for their sweet, girly shades like baby pink Ballet Slipper and and peachy Dune Road, but that doesn't mean Essie doesn't have a dark side, too. Their merlot-hued Decadent Diva polish ($5) will go on perfectly and stay chip-free (credit the well-designed brush and salon-quality formula for that), so you can rock the trend 'til it goes out of style.
