I haven’t tried the black yet. I have tried several of the Mommy colors and they are always amazing. It’s the Me that I am so impressed with. My two year old asks me to “color toes”, so I had to have something for a young kid. This is perfect. I have tried other non toxic vegan cruelty free options and they chipped instantly after drying. This one dries quickly, it chipped after about 3-4 days (long time for a hopping, skipping, jumping-off-furniture-when-mommy’s-back-is-turned toddler), the color is beautiful and vibrant (it really pops), and the brush when turned sideways is the perfect size for small toes. It would be hard on someone younger than two, I think. I use a qtip to wipe any off the nail accidents and after a bath, the color on the skin part is gone, while the toes look great! My two year old doesn’t chew toes (knock on wood) anymore, so that’s one of the reasons why I say ok to “color toes”.
