The unexpected nail colour that’s trending right now

If you’ve exhausted oxblood but it still feels a little too soon for summery pastels, could we tempt you with something a little… greener? Currently trending on TikTok (with 312 million views), green is tipped to be this spring’s most popular nail colour – and it’s the perfect shade to try for the in-between months, too.

“Green manicures are one of my most requested looks right now, and I’m using a lot of BioSculpture’s Free Lovin’, which is a deep green shade,” says manicurist Faye Dennis, an example of whose work you can see below. “It’s super eye-catching, and my clients say how many compliments they receive.”

As well as being a little bit different, green has benefits beyond the aesthetic. As a common colour found in nature, it’s associated with peace, growth and health and has been scientifically proven to boost our wellbeing. What better way to make your manicure an even more uplifting little treat than usual?

On TikTok, users are experimenting with green in all its guises, from emerald nails to glittery green accents to marble effect, chrome and zesty lime shades. Whether you opt for block colour or a subtle nod, the beauty of green is that it’s versatile.

When sunnier weather finally arrives, Dennis recommends trying brighter and more vibrant shades – think Bottega greens and pistachio – to add a pop of colour to an outfit. “You can also dip your toe into the trend with a coloured French tip or some minimal nail art,” she suggests.

There is a green for all tastes, nail shapes, lengths and skin tones – all you need to do is find the ones that suits you best. Below, some of our favourite green polishes.
