Dark nails are all the rage this season. “It looks best on short nails,” says celebrity manicurist Beth Fricke who works on everyone from Christina Ricci to the Victoria’s Secret Angels. She recommends using a navy blue such as the Russian Navy from The Russian Collection by OPI.


Here are Beth’s tips for getting star quality nails in your own home. First, wipe your nail with acetone or alcohol to take any residual oils off the nail. Next, use a good base coat to help dark colors stain the nail. Beth suggests using two coats of polish to cover the nail properly and to hit the edges of the nail with the first coat. Finally, apply the topcoat hitting the edges again to make the color last longer.
