Earth-tone colors are taking over the fashion and beauty world right now. Whether you prefer a glossy finish or a matte design, these 25 gorgeous olive green nails will add an elegant touch to your look!

Cool, earthy tones are all the rage this year, and we can see why. Olive green, and its close cousin, sage green, exude sophistication and elegance while echoing the muted tones of nature.

In a world full of classic manicures, it’s easy to overlook olive green since it’s a rather nontraditional nail color. However, if you’re after a neutral shade that matches all of your outfits, transcends seasons, and is overall just a bit more special than your average nude and beige nail designs, why not try this unassuming shade of green?

If you’re looking for extra sparkle or other added details to include in your manicure, take a look at these 25 classy nail designs below. Whether you’re DIYing your manicure or visiting your favorite nail tech, there are plenty of ideas that are worth saving for later!
