The newest nail color trend that’s taking over Instagram isn’t what you might expect! While most nail polish trends are inspired by hues of nature—think pale pink roses or sunshine yellow daffodils—the hottest trend in 2017 is decidedly not. In fact, the current trend in fingernail fashion is green, but not just any shade of green. What’s on everyone’s nails right now is the color of the year—at least among influencers and fashionistas—a hue known as sage green. But what exactly does sage green look like?
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SAGE GREEN NAILS
Sage green is a hued hue that has emerged as the latest nail color, despite being the hottest trend in fashion at the moment. It’s a sophisticated alternative to traditional jewel tones and can be found in everything from home décor to clothing. Celebrities and style influencers are wearing it on their fingers, toes, and even faces!
1) Create two different color options.
2) For the first option, combine sage green with white polish to create an ombré effect.
3) For the second option, use either metallic gold or silver along with sage green.
4) Apply your desired color combo to nails before dipping them into water and drying them off with a blow dryer.
WHY I LOVE THIS COLOR SO MUCH
I love this color because it’s different from any of the other trends I’ve seen in the past. This color is also great because it can work well with every outfit, making it a new favorite! The one thing that would make me change my mind about this color is if I had to use more than one coat of polish to cover up my nail. I’m not sure how durable this color will be and if it will chip easily or not.
