I'm Calling It: Pistachio Nails Are Summer's Freshest Manicure Trend

Among the trending nail colours of 2024, there is one nail colour trend that is standing out right now. Pistachio green is all over my social feeds and the nails of fellow beauty insiders. It's going to be a huge summer nail trend, but it's also among the pretty spring nail colours that I'm getting on board with as the weather warms up and we begin to tap into those brighter hues on our fingertips. 

In fact, green is such a versatile nail colour to try if you want to mix it up from your usual red or pink nail colours. Deep racing car green is especially chic for autumn and winter, while zesty lime green and light green colours like sage nails are always a seasonal winner to take you into a new season. Then there is green nail art. I'm personally obsessed with a green French manicure in mint green, as well as the more minimalist abstract swirls in apple green hues.

Ahead, you'll find all the pistachio green nail inspiration you could need for your next manicure appointment, as well as more green nail colours we cannot wait to try next.
