9 Green Nail Polish Colours Inspired by Margaret Atwood’s The Testaments

You cannot have failed to see the impact of Margaret Atwood’s novel and TV series The Handmaid’s Tale. Women have been using Offred’s distinctive red cloak and white bonnet to protest peacefully. But now Atwood’s latest book is out, a new phenomenon has arisen, green nail polish. If you are wondering why green, you only have to take a look at the book’s cover. It features the spring green cloaks of the teenage brides. And it seems that this is the colour now being adopted across the globe.
