The Matcha Nail Trend Has Us Seeing Green This Season

ICYMI: Matcha is the perfect green for the spring.

Beauty & Fashion

Gone are the days when matcha was just a go-to caffeine fix, nowadays the classic shade of green can be seen everywhere. From smoothies to pocky sticks, throughout the years the aesthetic shade has made its mark on some of our favorite things. It was only a matter of time before matcha green would further its reach with the masses and become a nail trend. And according to editorial nail artist Riyah Martin, matcha green is slated to have quite the moment this season.


Also known as “creamy” sage green, matcha is a perfect addition to your spring/summer nail color staples. LA-based professional manicurist Queenie Nguyen echoes this sentiment and shares her professional opinion on why matcha, in particular, is in. “I think that ‘green’ in general has been a trending color since last year and people are obsessed with different shades of green. Matcha is a great in-between color and neutral enough to wear on your nails on the daily,” she tells xoNecole.

To create the matcha nail look at home, the creative nail artist suggests using Zoya’s “Ireland,” Holo Taco’s “Matcha Maker,” or Essie’s “Precious Car-go!” as one of your nail polishes of choice. She also encourages our readers to invest in the right nail tools, to take their time practicing the perfect mani, and of course, get inspired by the matcha nail inspiration that’s out there.

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.
