    I only wear it on my feet, black fingernails are like the dead.

    i wear it...but not black, i wear OPI's lincon park after dark which is a very deep plum but can look almost black.

    IMO, it is only ok to wear dark nails in a professional setting if:

    1. you have very short, well manicured nails

    2. there must be no chips in the polish.

    I love the look but I couldn't do it. Dark colors don't fit my fashion or my personality. I generally stick with various pinks (from HOT pink to pale pink) and french manicured nails.

    Plus I think the people I work with would have a coniption (sp?) over it.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    I wear it because it goes with my personal style and it makes my fingers look more slender. I also like really really dark red, it's really sophisticated.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    My hands are too small/stubby/childlike to carry off black nail polish.

    OPI has a dark blue (russian blue/navy?) that I would love to try.

    I picked up a fresh bottle of cherry red, black, and a warm pink to go on my new short nails... I left the bag in my car and the cherry red exploded all over the inside of my "plastic rehab bag" I opened the car door and I was hit with a wall of nail salon smell to the infinite power.

    I have worn it in the past, still do occasionally, I prefer different shades of red most of the time now. Black polish looks better on short nails to me.

    I don't think you'll get any bad reactions, it's pretty common now to wear dark polish.

    I did mine black last night. They're perfectly done, cute and short; I love it!

    I like me some black, but at the moment I have garish pink NYC nail colour on (inspired by the other nail thread!) It's cheered me up somewhat.

    Russian Navy was a favorite of mine this winter. i always wear black (or equaly as dark colors) on my fingers and toes and have for the last 2 or 3 years.... but the one sucky part of my new job is that i can't wear colored nail polish. it has to be "natural pinks" or clear or nothing. it blows hardcore because i feel so weird seeing my toes empty. i may just keep painting my toes black and wear closed shoes to work. i just feel less tough with pink fingers. haha
    I'm a hard act to follow because when I'm done, I take the microphone with me.
