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.

Upgrade Your Morning Routine With This Simple Journaling Practice

As a writer, it can be fairly easy to succumb to the dreaded phase of creative block in my process. When the ideas flow, they feel light and airy, and the words leave my mind with little to no effort. And when they don't, I can easily find myself staring at my laptop, both overwhelmed and underwhelmed by the blank page in front of me. Filling the blank space with words no longer feels like second nature, and where there once was ease, there is suddenly resistance. Whether it’s due to burnout or the ideas are just not as free-flowing as I'm accustomed to, brain fog is real. However, through trial and error, I have learned that it is very possible to access creativity by exercising those areas of the mind.
