These 18 Elegant Manicures Prove Black-and-Gold Nails Are Always in Season

For spring and summer nail colors, our brains go right to pastels and bold brights—rightly so, as those are the warm-weather classics.

Now, we're painting our nails a rich and luxurious combination of black and gold. It's a classically chic look that we've been seeing all over Instagram and at the salon, a much-needed change as the temperatures drop and the holidays approach.

Take a scroll through some of our favorite designs, each one different from the last, as we've curated a collection that ranges from ornate and complex to simple and minimalist. Truly, there's something for everyone. Below, find our picks.
