Frequently Asked Questions

Is Green A Good Color For Nails?

Green is a great color to use on your nails. It is a super versatile color that can be used in simple and extravagant styles.  Because there are so many different shades of this color, you can go for bold and beautiful or subtle and elegant.  

Out of all of the shades of green that you can choose, emerald green is one of the best.  Not only is it great for all different styles of nail art, but it also complements any skin tone. 

The richness of the color makes it particularly popular through the winter months, but there is no reason why emerald green cannot be used all year round. 

What Can You Wear With Green Nails?

One of the things that puts people off of using colors on their nails outside of special occasions is the fact that they can clash with certain colors.  This can make picking outfits more difficult if you want them to match.
If you are concerned about whether emerald green nails would clash with your outfits, here are some top tips for avoiding that.  One of the easiest ways to avoid clashing colors is to stick with neutrals. 

If you have colors on your nails, wearing neutral clothing is a great idea.  Beige, tan, ivory, and cream are particularly great choices for emerald green nails as they really help the color stand out. Alternatively, you could opt to wear black to keep things neutral.  

If you do want to add some color to your wardrobe while your nails are green, pale green or pink are great choices that compliment emerald green well. 

Of course, as we have seen with these nail designs, gold also works really well with emerald hues.  This can be a great option if you have a party or event to attend. 

Are Green Nails Professional?

If you are planning to keep your green nails beyond your vacation or event, you might be wondering whether the color is generally considered to be professional. 

Returning to work with nails that could be deemed inappropriate can create some awkward situations. 

In regards to the color itself, there is no reason why it should be considered to be unprofessional.  With that being said, there are going to be certain styles that may be less professional depending on where you work.

As a general rule, nails that are extreme in length and feature significant amounts of nail jewelry are more likely to be considered unprofessional in traditional office settings or even some retail settings. 

With that being said, if you work in the beauty industry and can still do your job with extravagant nails, they might not be deemed unprofessional. 

The difficult thing with determining whether or not nails are appropriate in a professional workplace is that professionalism is quite subjective. 

You know your workplace best and can reasonably determine whether or not your desired nails would be appropriate.  In general, however, emerald green polish is not unprofessional. 

Final Thoughts

There are so many different ways to create stunning emerald green nails.  Whether you want something simple and classic on your natural nails or you want to go all out with acrylics and jewelry, there is a look for you. 

Best of all, because nails are temporary, you can get as creative and wild as you want with the designs.
