Matte Black Dino Nails
If you prefer your dino-inspired nails without metallics, 10 Blank Canvases uses a matte black base in her 3-D nails tutorial. These nails are edgy enough to turn heads but still conventional enough for nine-to-fivers.
Throwing Star Mani
While you might have to be a ninja to keep from stabbing yourself with these faux throwing stars, these unique digits by Lab Muffin are well worth it. With the novelty, the matte black polish, and oozing “blood” all going for these nails, they’ll have everyone’s eyes on them.
Acid Color and Spiked Nails
