Go Go GREEN! 1 of 6
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.
1. Zoya ‘Josie’ 2 of 6
It's the perfectly opaque (creamy) green that gives even coverage. Being a cool green, it's ideal for those with fair complexions.

2. China Glaze ‘Highlight of My Summer’ 3 of 6
For darker complexions, this creamy lime green will look fabulous! It's soft enough to be versatile, but loud enough to be fun.

4. Essie ‘First Timer’ 5 of 6
So maybe you ARE a 'first timer' when it comes to wearing green polish. No worries, this one virtually flatters all skin tones. I'd especially recommend it for those with olive or warm undertones.
