Dark purple nails are the perfect way to show off your dark and mysterious side. While this color is a popular choice during Halloween and the holidays, it’s actually a much more wearable nail color than you may think!

Dark purple nails are often associated with the amethyst gemstone. Amethyst is a dark violet or purple quartz that is believed by some to be a powerful protective stone. It is also said to promote calmness, balance and peace. While we may not believe in the magic powers of crystals, we do believe that colors can have an effect on your mood. And if one can feel calmer by getting their nails painted purple, sign us up!

Dark purple (and purple in general) is also often associated with royalty, luxury, power and ambition. These associations stem from the fact that back in the day when synthetic dyes hadn’t been invented, purple was one of the most expensive pigments to produce. To this day, dark purple evokes feelings of glamour and mystery, which isn’t too dissimilar from its origins as the color of royalty.

So, whether you are trying to channel a more luxurious vibe, you want to elicit feelings of calm, or you just want to have cute nails to look at, dark purple nails are perfect for this! 

Below, we’ve gathered 25 of our favorite dark aesthetic purple nails which will add a touch of elegance or edge to your look. You can go with a simple one-color design, or add some details like glitter or gems. You could even try out a dark purple French manicure!
