Very Peri may be Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2022, but green continues to dominate the fashion space.
Dubbed Gen-Z Green, the colour is firmly taking over from Millennial Pink, in part thanks to Bottega Veneta’s love of the hue.
It came through on the SS22 runway, with Rejina Pyo, Molly Goddard and Supriya Lele backing the shade. Now it’s joining the beauty space too, becoming one of the most popular nail colours of the year so far.
Kelly Green appeared during Fashion Week, but when it comes to nail colour, you don’t have to pick just one shade. Play around with different hues — olive, neon, forest, moss, teal, kermit…anything goes.
So if you’re convinced, where can you buy decent green nail polishes? As the colour continues to prove popular, the selection is getting better and better.
If you’re looking for a brighter shade, Nails Inc has a vegan nail polish called Mother Earth’s Calling and you have to see Gucci’s iteration, or for something on the lighter side, OPI has a vibrant pastel green called Pear-adise Cove.
Feeling some forest green? Shoreditch Nails has a shade that’s just what you need called The Victoria Park.
Here are some of the best on the market.
