@OP: The best option is trying a few different ones. Condenser vs. dynamic can survive user testing/preference for vocals. Some particular mic may just seem to always work when "you" sing into it and that's all you need to know.

However, there used to be a time where only "this mic over here" worked for my vocals, after years of doing vocals, I now seem to be able to get as good a vocal from multiple mics, so some of it is having a mic AND learning how to record your own vocal well and... little of that is due the mic itself, assuming it's a decent mic IME.
If it requires a null test to find it, it is by definition minuscule.
