Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatu Allahi wa barakatuh,

I just wanted to warn you about using henna with black dye in it.... if it's food coloring it's OK but if it's a hair dye called PPD it's very dangerous if you get that on your skin and is actually banned for use on the skin by the FDA. That's why a lot of henna tattoos leave permanent scarring because they've mixed that PPD chemical with it to make it black. You can read about it on inshallah.

I don't think it would hurt your nails but just be really careful not to get it on your skin, especially if you're very sensitive.
I have heard some ppl mix indigo with henna to get a darker color (maybe even black) or use it by itself to get a blue color too. Indigo looks like henna and you use it the same way I think, but I've never used it before so I'm really not sure.
As for the original question.... I believe this is what you're looking for
