For dark polish, I am currently obsessed with OPI’s Here Today…Aragon Tomorrow from the España line. It’s is a deep deep forresty emerald green and totally fun for the fall!” -Lisa, These Lips Are Made For Glossin’

nars+chinatown+nail+polish Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Best Light and Dark Nail Polishes

“My favorite light polish is the mix of Essie Marshmallow and Ballet Slippers (Marshmallow goes on first). It’s the famed combo that all the editors wore in The Devil Wears Prada (the book), and I have yet to find a light polish that makes my nails look as lit from within. My favorite dark is NARS Chinatown. It’s a much deeper maroon than the bold Mr.-Big-red-wall-red you’d expect from the name.” -Amber, Beauty Blogging Junkie

“I love Essie Ballet Slippers for a pretty, sophisticated look! I just purchased my first dark polish in about 15 years today and I love it. It’s Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Cinna-Snap. It reminds me of a glass of super dark merlot.” -Sarah, Hair Thursday

Sephora+by+OPI+212 Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Best Light and Dark Nail Polishes

For my dark color, lately I’ve found myself going with another Sephora by OPI shade Brunette on the Internet. It’s a really rich, dark burgundy brown-red. Totally vampy.” -Carla, Product Girl

 Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Best Light and Dark Nail Polishes

“For light I love Essie’s Adore-a-Ball or Revlon’s #910 Barely Peach. They hold up very well if you cook a lot. For dark, I am still in love with OPI’s Eiffel for this Color from their Fall 2009 Parisian color collection.” -Julia, All About The Pretty

mac+Nocturnelle Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Best Light and Dark Nail Polishes

“Light: Essie is Waltz the perfect white nail polish, it has no pink undertones what so ever. The pigment is not too thick so it doesn’t look like you have a white-out on. The classic white. Dark: MAC in Nocturnelle is the perfect pure black shade. You can’t get more black than this one. The classic black.” -Marta, Talking Makeup

essie+mademoiselle Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Best Light and Dark Nail Polishes

“Favorite dark: CND Nail Noir – I almost cried during FW when I found out it’s going away. I came home and bought 6 bottles online. LOVE this color. Favorite light: Essie Mademoiselle – a favorite of mine since forever! Now my daughter Bailey’s hooked on it and my bottle disappears twice as fast!” -Erika, Makeup Bag

neutrogena+nail+enhancer Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight: Best Light and Dark Nail Polishes

“I do a “faux-French” manicure. I use something cheap (like N.Y.C. Color white nail polish) to paint a quick, easy French manicure tip, and then use a little bit of cuticle oil cream (or lip
gloss or olive oil) over top create the “shine effect” of a top coat (it takes seconds to do). I also love Neutrogena’s Instant Nail Enhancer to give a quick, healthy shine. I only use dark colors on my toes. I really want to try those Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens, because they look like big, portable markers – so you can paint your toes in a flash.” -Bailey, Makeover Momma

“OPI Lincoln Park After Dark is my go-to dark shade. It looks great on a mani or pedi – and really, when is dark purple not an option for Fall/Winter? It’s classic! Revlon Sheer Pink is my everyday nude. It adds only a touch of color along with a really great shine.” -Tammy, A Mom In Red High Heels
