What brand of black is best to use? I have wet & wild, I wait for it to dry then put a top coat on but it still smears... I even wait a day for the top coat
OCC lip tar in Tarred!
Whoops, i thought this was in the black lips thread. ^\\\^
I like sinful colors. They're vibrant, dry fast, and cheap. I bought 8 from walgreens for a buckk each.
OPI all the way

There isn't a universal "best" of anything, IMO.
On my finger nails, most drugstore/lower-end nail polishes don't last much longer than a couple of days, even with a base and top coat, not even Essie, and that's a brand I generally like. Then a few months ago, I bought a couple of Illamasqua nail polishes during their site's sale. The first of the two I used was Scorn, a matte black. It lasted five days on me with minor tipwear before it started chipping. (The other one I bought was a dark navy blue called Propaganda, which is now discontinued. I'm going to try this one this weekend.)

Sorry that WnW doesn't play nice with you. it has been my goto black for years now. I haven't heard anything but praise for Illa's Bookshelf though. I know several woman that swear by Booosh.

OPI Black Onyx is honestly worth the money. If not, another good opaque one is sally hansen insta dry . I don't know what their black is called..

I like Zoya, Raven, but really, it depends on your own tastes and body chemistry.
essie or zoya
