It’s that time of year again, where one day you’re in shorts and the next in a sweater. Transitioning between seasons can be tricky. Even though temperatures are fluctuating, green nail polish should be your constant. It’s perfect for saying goodbye to summer and hello to autumn.

    My mom always said that green is a neutral. I didn't quite buy her theory until it I tried in on my nails. Regardless of outfit choice, green nails always seem to coordinate. The following are 5 of my favorite greens for various skin types.

    It's the perfectly opaque (creamy) green that gives even coverage. Being a cool green, it's ideal for those with fair complexions.
