It’s always fun to branch out and try different nail colours every now and then instead of just sticking to the classic shades like, red, maroon, pastels and more.

Don’t get us wrong, classic shades are amazing, but wouldn’t you agree that playing with colours just amp up your entire look! Now that you’ve got us to rely on, you can count that we will be sharing only the best and trendiest nail ideas we’ve spotted.

A new trend has come up. Known as Sage Green nails or Matcha nails, this is the colour palette you’d want to go for. We have compiled 15 Sage Green/Matcha nail ideas you’d want to try on your next nail appointment.

Shades of Green

We adore the creative play on green tones by the manicurist, who expertly blended various hues instead of sticking to a single, darker shade. This approach beautifully captures the essence of sage green or matcha-inspired nail designs, reminiscent of lush matcha gardens.

Green and White French Tips

This twist on French tips is simply adorable and charming! It really enhances your feminine charm. With both green and white tips, plus the sweet heart shape, it all comes together beautifully.

The Zen Vibe

If you’re all about simplicity and prefer a single shade on your nails, this is just right for you. It brings a serene and minimalist feel that’s perfect for any occasion.


Bring out your inner girly-girl with Ms. Matcha! If you’re all about nails that exude femininity, this one’s for you! Adorned with a charming 3D bow and delicate mini pearls, it adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to your look.

Emerald Elegance

This sage green nail design starts with a nude base and blends into a gradient of green shades on top, seamlessly merging both colours for a stunning finish.

A Fresh Bloom

Pairing a nude base with a sage green or matcha-inspired shade makes for a striking combination. It adds a burst of freshness to your nails. And when you top it off with delicate flower designs, it takes the elegance and charm of the design to a whole new level.

By the way, you can also play around with various hues for the flowers to make the whole nail design pop even more.

Creamy Matcha

We are loving this nail design – it totally remind us of delicious matcha ice cream! The white base is so creamy and the top part looks just like matcha swirls. It’s such a chic treat for your nails that you’ll want to flaunt everywhere!
