No matter how you feel about it—whether you're drawn to it or not—green nail polish is having a moment. It's having more than a moment, actually. It's been trending for a while now and in every shade under the sun. Personally, I love green nail polish. So humor me, if you will, as I'd like to make a case for it. Here it goes. Green nail polish is unexpected. It's eye-catching. It's confident. And depending on whether you choose a subtle sage green or a striking slime shade, it can fit any situation and aesthetic.
Despite my impassioned plea to consider painting your nails a shiny shade of green, I realize that you might require further proof that green is in fact the go-to nail color of the season. And I'm happy to abide. Keep scrolling to see the five most photogenic shades of green nail polish. From mint to emerald, these shades are cold hard evidence that green is the way to go.
#1: Mint Green
You have to admit mint is one of those rare colors that work all year round. It looks fresh and springy in the warmer months and cool and icy in the colder months. It's a chameleon that way.
#2: Olive Green
Olive green is definitely darker and bolder than mint, yet it has enough subtlety to still appear somewhat neutral. And if I do say so myself, it looks incredible paired with gold jewelry.
#3: Sage Green
#4: Emerald Green
#5: Slime Green
