6 Dark Nail Polish Colors That Are Better Than Black Featuring Morgan Taylor Lacquer


Some may say that dark nail polish colors are for winter only which thankfully is almost over in couple of days but I love to wear them year around. They look great on shorter nails and against lighter skin. If done well they look classy but at the same time modern and edgy. Even though black is classic you can wear some other shades that are almost as dark but have some color to it like dark purples, navy, dark grey…  Here are my favorites from Morgan Taylor line.


Inspired by luminous pearls, raw gems, semi-precious stones, glimmering silvers and radiant gold all drawn from the earth. The exclusive Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer is infused with rare and precious elements.

All pigments are saturated, pure and finely milled for luminous metallics, never before seen shimmers, decadent crèmes, stunning sheers and more glistening glitters.

The payoff—smooth, even, long-lasting color with a gorgeous professional finish.

In their commitment to the professional and as a worldwide leader in the nail industry Morgan Taylor recognized the importance of a globally compliant nail lacquer that is free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, and DBP.

All of the swatches below are with one coat of React base coat and React top coat which make application so much easier since base coat with it’s stickiness “holds” the color better while top coat gives incredible shine and prolongs the wear. I get at least 7 days of perfect high shine gel like finish without chipping. Every manicure I finish with Remedy renewing cuticle oil.

Sweater weather – dark cool toned grey with strong purple undertone and only one coat needed for perfect opaque coverage. I can’t get over how stunning this color is!


Well spent – super dark blackened purple with creme finish and opaque coverage in one coat. On nails it looks darker when it dries than the color in the bottle.


Denim du jour – my second favorite after Sweater weather. Love me some good dark blue! Applied like a dream, simply flawless!


On the fringe – medium/dark grey with taupe undertone and warmer than Sweater weather. I like this one a lot too and it has great opacity. Both are gorgeous and it only depends if you prefer warmer or cooler tone greys. On the nails they appear more similar than the colors you can see in the bottles.


Metaling around – dark gunmetal with shimmer finish. It has very fine silver shimmer to it that doesn’t affect it’s texture. It applies so nicely like it’s a cream. Two coats for full coverage.
