All right, so we won’t pretend that green nail polish is the most fashionable, chic or even most-loved nail color in the history of ever, unless, of course, it’s St. Patrick’s Day. But we’re here to tell you that green is officially spring’s biggest nail trend — namely, mint green — and you’re about to see it all over your social feeds.

But we’re not talking the gaudy, frosted, got-it-from-a-gumball-machine green polish that you wore in elementary school. We’re talking about pale, sea foam mint that’s just bright enough to make your nails look fresh, yet subdued enough to be considered a neutral. And thankfully, it’s one shade that really does look good on every skin tone.

But rather than have you stare wistfully down the beauty aisle of the drugstore trying to find the best mint green to try today, we rounded up our five favorite below.
