Winter is on its way out, and in the world of beauty and fashion, that means countless
springtime trends are *finally* in full bloom. Namely: The buzzy power bob haircut that has A-listers like Megan Thee Stallion and Hailey Bieber experimenting with shorter ‘dos, ’60s era glamour, Y2K fits aplenty, unexpected pastel-hued waterlines, and of course — all green everything, especially when it comes to nails.
Case in point? Not too long ago,
Kim Kardashian strayed from her go-to short, baby pink manicure for some neon green stiletto press-on tips. Before that, Selena Gomez was spotted with a dazzling emerald green mani with some understated shimmer for a look that was effortlessly elegant. What’s more, Hailee Steinfeld opted for a pastel green hue with siren scale nail art for an on-trend mermaidcore moment. And with major co-signs from some of the biggest celebs and influencers alike, it’s safe to say that green nails are sure to be major for spring (and likely summer, too).
From soothing sage hues to deeper emerald lacquers, pops of icy mint to pretty pastel patterns — here are 22 ideas for green nails that bring all of the refreshed vibes and inspiration for spring.
