I'm loving the look of black nails lately.  However, as a mom of 3 in her mid-30's, I worry that I'm too old to pull it off!  To be honest, I've only really seen it on younger adults/teens.  What do you all think?  Is there an age limit to this look? LOL!

In my opinion - one is never too old to wear a certain color. In this case - black! I have many friends my age (I'm 50+) that wear black and their nails look awesome. Any color in the world will work for any age! So, go get some black nail color and use it! And share pictures, if you like.  ;-)

No way are you too old!  I've done almost-black colors like Lincoln Park At Midnight (even darker than Lincoln Park After Dark).  I do any color I like - though since I don't like neon or blue nail polish, I don't wear them - but I do very deep reds & purples, blue-green, charcoal grey metallic, purply-pink chrome - all kinds of things that even 2-3 years ago I would have considered inappropriate.  Fashion has changed, so why not have fun?

Oh - I'm 50, BTW.  I've been blessed with my dad's long slim hands, and a few years ago I had Fraxel to smooth the skin & fade the spots on the backs of my hands, which makes them look quite a bit younger.  Still, no one would mistake them for the hands of anyone under 40.  I steer clear of brown polishes that can accentuate any remaining age spots, but other than that, I go for it, and I think you should too!

No way, I think you are as young as you feel. I really believe that! You can look vibrant and fashionable at any age. Wearing black nail polish is not a bad thing at all. It just shows a sense of style. 

So, go ahead and wear your black nail polish, besides, you mention you are only in yhour 30's not bad at all Kiss
