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. So here are the nearest we can get to that iconic spring green in nail polish form:
Thick and creamy with staying power, this is a super-bright spring green that delivers a salon-quality at home.
This is a limited edition so you’ll have to hurry if you want to buy it. What we like about it is that the colour of the book has a certain neon quality to it that’s hard to replicate. But under UV light this nail polish has a lovely glow that stands out.
We like this neon green colour nail polish for its shimmer and the fact it will last for ages without chipping.
This green nail polish contains nourishing botanicals to keep your nails healthy while you are wearing the polish.
This might be a lighter green but you get a rich pigment with this nail polish and it covers your nails in one coat. Perfect for those in a hurry. It also contains nourishing avocado oil.
More of a natural-looking green here from Opi. If you want a salon quality finish you’ll get it in just two coats. This product gives a gorgeous mirror finish that has staying ability but is easy to remove.
