Are you adventurous? Are you not afraid to be yourself? Are you looking for a vibrant and versatile color to break out of your regular manicure?
If you said yes, then coffin green nails may be the look for you!
Green nail polish represents earthiness and spunk.
Most of us associate green with environmentally friendly choices and protecting Mother Earth; it’s no surprise that green nails are popular amongst environmental activists and nature lovers.
In 2023, with the rise in individuality and expression and young adults not being afraid to wear funky hair and makeup colors, green nail polish is a choice for adventurous individuals.
There are so many shades and styles of green nail polish that depending on the color, it can be elegant or energetic, sophisticated or sassy, preppy or playful.
Such an adventurous color like green deserves a bold shape like coffin nails.
Coffin nails are a popular choice for nail designs because of their slender appearance, like stiletto nails, with the practicality of a flattened-out tip. They resemble the shape of a traditional wooden casket or a ballerina’s slipper.
Coffin green nails are popular because they:
- Provide a canvas for nail art
- Elongate fingernails
- Have a practical flat tip
- Add edgy appeal to every outfit
- Give an adventurous color to an edgy nail shape
Coffin green nails range from light mint green to deep emerald green. The chart below describes a few of the most popular shades of coffin green nails.

How to Make Your Own Coffin Green Nails Color
We love coffin green nails, but let’s be honest; green nail polish isn’t always at the top of everyone’s investments. Opened nail polishes last 18 to 24 months before the mixture separates. If you shake your nail polish and it doesn’t mix, toss it! That said, if green isn’t a nail color you wear often, you might not want to buy a whole bottle of green polish. Luckily, you can make your own green nail polish at home using yellow and blue nail polish.
What you need to make green nail polish:
- Yellow nail polish (creme or matte)
- Blue nail polish (creme or matte)
- Clear nail polish (optional)
- White nail polish (optional)
- Nail polish brushes
- Disposable mixing surface
How to make green nail polish step-by-step:
- Pour two drops of yellow nail polish and two drops of blue nail polish onto your mixing surface.
- Swirl the colors together using a toothpick; this will help blend the polishes rather than brushing them together.
- Add more of either color to reach your desired shade.
- If you want a lighter color, add a drop or two of white nail polish. Add a few drops of a darker blue or yellow nail polish for a darker color.
- Add a few drops of clear nail polish for a glossier finish.
- Use a clean nail polish brush to blend the mixture into a solid color.
- Paint your nails with your green nail polish and apply a top coat.
