well yes them. Is there any way of stopping them from running? Or is it just a lost cause? It's just i got this gorgeous oversized gold ring w/ black stone but every time i wear it it leaves a big ugly black shadow of itself.

any tips?

I read somewhere that painting it with clear nail varnish would help. That might not work longer term though.

I agree! Clear nail varnish coated on the inside is meant to work.

:rofl:

And OP, I'm not sure there is actually any way to get rid of it - it's something to do with copper content I think, and it depends on the pH value of your skin I think

Yehaa, neutralise your finger by covering it in lemon juice, dont know if this will help, but it'll smell nice

I would stop wearing it, I can't stand them, so just don't buy rings that do that to your hands. If you love the ring loads, the clear nail varnish thing is supposed to work, but I think you have to reapply it fairly often.

Yep, like everyone said, clear nail varnish will be fine.

I know what you mean, I HATE it when that happens, usually turns my fingers a murky green shade.
