Social media has spoken: spring’s ‘it’ nail polish colour is green. Spotted everywhere, from myriad A-listers to our favourite nail influencers, green (in all its varieties) has become a go-to nail colour of choice with Google searches for the shade up 550% in the past year.
‘Green feels fresh and it’s a great transition shade to take us from winter into spring,’ says nail influencer Melanie Graves (aka @overglowedit). ‘There’s also a ton of range where you can pick a deeper emerald colour for a moody vibe or a neon bright for something more playful.’
The current must-try colour? ‘Bottega green,’ says Max Factor nail ambassador and manicurist, Iram Shelton, who believes the brand has re-introduced the bright green hue into everyone’s wardrobe (and nail kit).
What’s the 2022 way to wear green nail polish?
According to Melanie, abstract swirls and shapes are the way to go. ‘You don’t need nail art tools and there’s no wrong way to do it – using your polish brush you can swirl or create shapes that look fresh and organic.’ For a more subtle look, Iram recommends updating a classic French manicure with a green tip: ‘It looks great on both long and short nails.’
And if you can’t decide on a shade of green, ‘Go ombre across the nails with green shades in varying depth,’ adds Melanie.
