Beth may be ready to see black nail polish retired, but I am not. I think it's eternally chic, somewhat mysterious, and it looks ah-mazing on absolutely everyone. (Name one person who looked horrible with black nail polish. No rush, I'll wait.) If anything, maybe the look just needs to be refreshed and re-imagined. Here, 15 interesting ways to rock dark, swarthy digits. (Thanks Pinterest!)

1) Wear it flat and matte.
