"Soft mushroom" might not sound like the sexiest shade, but hear us out. OPI's resident nail pro Sigourney Nuñez tells us this earthy bottle, called This Isn’t Greenland, is one of her all-time favorite neutral polishes. "This shade actually reads like a really pretty nude green," she says.

If you're looking for a deep, rich green, Chanel's Fiction is the easy pick. "In the seasonal transition, we're loving a deep green, borderline-black manicure," says nail pro and Olive & June founder Sarah Gibson Tuttle. "This is one of my personal favorites because the gem-like tones come through, giving the nails an unexpected pop when the light hits your fingers."

Tenoverten is one of our favorite clean nail-care brands, and is newly shoppable at Target. Though every single polish is chic and wearable, this fresh seafoam is one of the most flattering shades, nail pro Nadine Abramcyk tells us. "Liberty is a green with cool blue undertones, which makes it a soft spring shade that looks great on every skin tone," she says.

NYC fashion girls are obsessed with L.A. jewelry brand J.Hannah 's gold signet rings, which they style with the brand's similarly chic collection of nail polish for the perfect flat lay. The mossy-green Eames shade is J.Hannah's best-seller — and for good reason. As Abramcyk tells us, "It's the most stylish earthy green color I've ever seen in a polish."
