Each year when the festive season comes around, we're greeted with the traditional seasonal colours everywhere we look. From the deep scarlet lipsticks we stash into our Christmas party bags, to the dazzling silver and gold fabrics we pull from the depths of our wardrobes for their annual outing, there's a comfort in knowing what's expected of us amidst the chaos of the holiday season.
While the omnipresence of green during the festive period is hard to ignore, our first thought might not be to incorporate its lush hues into your beauty routine. In fact, green is set to be one of the most in demand shades adorning our nails this season, with Pinterest reporting searches for 'emerald green' are up 300 per cent, closely followed by 'khaki' and 'forest green'.
"Brands like Bottega Veneta made green the hottest colour for autumn/winter 21, and nothing feels more put together than matching your manicure to fashion's favourite hue," says celebrity manicurist Michelle Humphrey.
"There are no hard rules when it comes to matching nail polish to your skin tone, but warm undertones tend to suit brighter, more intense colours. Think Bottega green and sage," she adds. "Darker skin tones work well with most shades of green, you'll find the lighter the shade of green, the more it will pop. Khaki and olive look stunning on darker skin."
Here, we've lined up the most enviable green nail designs to inspire your manicure this party season.
