We can count on one hand the number of times we've reached for green nail polish at the salon — not because there's anything wrong with the colour, but in a world of creamy neutrals and poppy reds, shades of green can get lost in the mix.
The hue shouldn't be overlooked, though, especially the in-between tones that take inspiration from leafy herbs like thyme and sage. Muted greens feel particularly suitable right now. They're less predictable than dusty roses and caramel nudes, but still palatable if dark browns and burgundies aren't quite your jam. Plus, sage green is shaping up to be one of this season's colour trends de jour across nail inspo accounts on Instagram, Pinterest, and TikTok.
Ahead, we rounded up our favourite sage-inspired polish colours to use on your next at-home mani day.
