Green is the new Black

Have you ever thought about how easy it is to style green clothes with other pieces of clothing? There is no wonder why camouflage clothes are green. At NailKind, we are famous for our range of green shades – from light to dark. 

Our best-selling shade, Crocodile Smile  is the quintessence of the neutral green nail polish, it goes with all skin tones, has a very classic look and is the equivalent of your nude polish but with a green twist.  If you prefer a darker but neutral nail polish look, try NailKind Green Daze , one of our original shades and a best seller since launch.

Don’t be shy

Once you have tried a NailKind Green Nail Polish, you may be tempted to collect them all! We would recommend NailKind Godzilla which is not as scary as its name. It is a true khaki nail polish with extreme shine. This is the equivalent to your little combat jacket or bomber for your nails.

Also good for your nails

NailKind's green nail polishes are also “green”. Our lacquers are up to 85% bio-sourced and formulated with low chemicals. They contain ingredients such as potato, maize, corn and sugarcane. Before applying any nail polish, it is essential to prepare your nails for the best results.  Start by shaping your nails, gently pushing back cuticles and ensure your nails are dry.  We highly recommend using a base coat as it provides a smooth surface for your green nail polish to adhere to and helps prevent staining, especially when you go for the more pigmented shades. NailKind’s Natural Base Coat will help make your manicure last longer too.  Discover how to prepare your nails with our blog here.

Less is more

It is always best to apply two thin coats for optimal coverage. Allow each coat to dry before applying the next, so be patient! It will be worth it when your green nail polish lasts longer on your nails.

Even better, we would recommend applying a Top Coat to lock the colour in, prevent from chipping and giving you that NailKind high shine.  Have you also tried the new NailKind Plumping Top Coat  to give you extra volume like a gel nail polish would do.

Is Dark Green Nail Polish better than Black nail polish?

Whether you want to dare to wear black nail polish is a personal choice but dark green nail polish is a softer alternative yet still will give you a bold nail look. We would recommend our two best selling NailKind lacquers: Susan Rover and Clear Forest Magic . To make your green nail polish last longer, start with a clean and properly prepared nail surface. Apply a good quality base coat such as NailKind’s Natural Base Coat to prevent staining and chipping. Apply thin, even layers of NailKind’s green nail polish, and finish with a top coat to seal the colour and add durability.

How do I remove green nail polish without damaging my nails?

To remove green nail polish without damaging your nails, use a non-acetone remover. Soak a cotton ball or pad in the remover, place it on your nail, and gently rub off the polish. Be sure to moisturize your nails and cuticles afterward to prevent drying.  We use NailKind’s Natural Nail Oil regularly to keep our nails healthy.

Are there eco-friendly or non-toxic green nail polish options available?

Yes, NailKind is an eco-friendly and non-toxic nail polish brand that offers green shades. We are free of harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). These polishes are safer for your nails and the environment.
