The “classic black” checklist doesn’t start and end with the LBD: We love a dose of the ultimate neutral from boots to lashes and everywhere in between. This sophisticated polish is a far cry from the streaky stuff we painted on during our high school Goth phase. This pitch-black shade has a sleek finish—that doesn’t smooth over its dark-side edge.
How it Works
Lippmann’s signature bottle and brush (and the creamy formula) make for easy, controlled application—a big plus when you’re sweeping on this jet-black hue. What’s more, the polish is formulated without potentially harmful ingredients including formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene.
How to Use
Start with a nail protecting base coat, then apply two layers of color (waiting a few minutes in between for polish to dry slightly). Finish with a top coat to keep chip-free.
