Once upon a time, green nails would have been a sure sign to get to a doctor who specializes in fungus treatments.

This spring, however, green nails are a result of the trendiest and most popular nail polish around.

We’re talking light green – not heavy, deep forest green or disco green with glitter accents.

We’re talking the color of fresh grass, pistachios, edamame, kiwi fruit, spring peas and cool mint.
