Whether it's a chrome french manicure [1] or glazed-doughnut nails [2], we're always on the lookout for the coolest nail trends [3] to hit the scene. Lately, green manicures have captured our eyes, and we're excited to incorporate the color into our nail routine. Even the Pantone Color Institute [4] predicted a few shades of green will stand out this New York Fashion Week fall/winter season, like emerald-green nail designs. The shade range is versatile; there's a green for every season and mood. If you're eager to experiment with the various hues of green, we curated our favorite green nail polishes ahead. We found plenty of trendy greens from some of our favorite brands like Olive & June, Essie, OPI, and more.

Going for something glamorous? You can't go wrong with an emerald-green nail that looks exquisite in the evening. Plus, it's a great way to transition into and get a head start on the fall and winter trends [5]. If you're leaning toward something brighter, lime green or a true bold green are trendy and vibrant picks, perfect for nail art. Or you can go for a minty shade or something pistachio for an airy and lush vibe. If you prefer neutral tones, we found a few olive and earthy shades that will add a subtle pop.
