Black Is Back and It's Badder Than Ever

Celebrities are always a season ahead of the game, so it's no wonder that we've seen some of the most gorgeous gals in young Hollywood gearing up for Autumn with black nail polish. Over the past few days, I've spotted your favorite and definitely one of my favorite Fall nail colors on Mischa Barton, Rihanna and Lauren Conrad.

I can't believe that even though it's smack in the middle of summertime, these ladies aren't afraid of crossing over to the dark side. Tell me: Are you just as excited as you were last year about the return of black nail polish?

i'm not a huge fan of dark polish - it's so hard to remove!

I love the dark polish trend but I'm not going to do it in the middle of summer. Just cause the fall makeup is coming out doesn't mean you have to wear it already.

I'm glad it's back but I think it's a bit fashion victim-y to be wearing it in the middle of summer. I'll totally be wearing it again in the fall, though.

I'm not into black but I'm loving dark nail polish! Right now I've got OPI Russian Navy on my tips and toes.

i think it was on fashionista, but i recently read that since dinah & ally lohan were both wearing black nail polish on their train wreck show--it's officially not cool anymore. guess the starlets didn't get the memo.

I only wear it if I was going to a bar or a club. It's too harsh for everyday.

I like navy, deep plum/burgundy and even coffee are cool for toes, but black has no depth, I can't get into it. I second Lincoln Park after dark

Never got into the darker colors for my nails because I always thought it doesn't look clean and polished... buuut I'm really considering a dark navy blue

I love dark polish on my toes. I cannot quite do black but will drag out my Lincoln Park After Dark. As for my hands, alas, I cannot go dark but use Spa Ritual's Up and Away, a neutral beige-pink.

I love dark nails but i'm still having fun with my bright summer colors.
i don't think it really left? i love black nails, or just dark nails in general. although i've strayed recently with bright almost-neon hot pink. i love light my sapphire by opi

i just got this sally hansen polish called "pat on the black" and it is a really really deep wine color, no mica, totally shiny and gorg.

I just can't wear straight black. I do better with a dark purple or dark blue like OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark.

I definitely think black is just a bit too dark for nails. Plus it always looks super dull; I bought a chanel dark blue polish though and that is gorgeous. Still very dark but shiny too.

Since I bought several bottles of navy/purple (Lincoln Park After Dark, etc)last season, I am pleased. I like to get more mileage out of my polishes. Plus, I just like how they look!

I have a shiny dark blue on my nails now! I would love to do black but I think it may be too dramatic for work. I prefer dark short nails over long french tip. Don't get me wrong, the acrylic nail looks great on almost every girl but for some reason I just can't seem to function properly with them! Short and Sweet will suit me just fine!

I always have a bottle of black in my nail polish arsenal - though for a long time I had to buy a couple of them around Halloween to stay stocked!! I'm wearing black polish right now and love all the dark colors available (blue, burgundy, blood reds) and also vintage red colors. But I've never been much of a trend-follower.

If you ask me, it never left. I flirted with green polish for about a week, and now I'm back in black.

everyone made fun of me when I wore black polish back in November :sad:

I've been waiting for the return of black nail polish! However, I think I'm going to slowly move into it and start off with a deep plum.

I don't get into black polish but I do love a few dark ones.."Full Metal Jacket" by NARS is gorgeous, dark, gunmetal grey..and any really deep shimmery blues are also pretty to me. I think Chanel makes one, I had always meant to try it out. I wish I could get TOMA polishes here, they last for ages. :P But no dice, sadly.

I still can't get over Blue Satin! I like black too though.
