Wearing a dark polish is a simple way to look classy and put together. The single, most important consideration in sporting a vampy shade at work is nail length. Nail length does a lot to influence the overall look of the polish. A dark polish on shorter nails looks effortlessly chic. I have a lot of dark polish favorites in my nail polish stash. I like them because under office lighting, it just looks like I have a dark polish on my nails. On certain angles however, the color offers a flash of shimmer or sparkles without going over the top.
The downside to wearing a dark color is that the slightest chip is easily visible. This is the reason why I highly encourage keeping polish remover wipes handy.
These pictures showcase my favorite dark polishes. The swatches were done on long and short nails for reference.
