While the thought of green nail polish still takes me back to my days as a kid of the 90s, and the very first non-peel-off nail polish I received that started my collection and resulting beauty obsession (it was the most obnoxious lime green shade ever), it's hard to deny the fact that green as a nail shade has evolved tremendously since then. From edgy forest green shades to the ever-popular mint nail trend, green is hardly the rebellious, "grungy-chic" staple it was back in my junior high days. And while few nail trends stand the test of time and last longer than a few weeks (the beauty world has the shortest attention span when it comes to polish fads!), mint and other fresh pastel shades seem to be a safe bet for a stylish, sandal-filled summer. The perfect creamy mint polish straddles the line between powder blue and emerald green for a fresh, cool, pretty pastel that pops. Whether you prefer your minty shades more on the aqua side or more spearmint-green, there's a polish perfect for you out there!
