Mint, forest, olive… we can’t begin to count the number of gorgeous matte green nail designs you can make with the many shades of green!

Whether you add a white paisley design to long coffin nails or wear matte green solo on short nails, the result will be swoon-worthy!
Going Green with Matte Green Nails
There’s more than one way to get a matte green manicure. We’ve pulled a few of our favorite matte green nail designs, some with extra details and some without. We know you’ll fall in love!
1. Matte Green Nails for Dark Skin
If your skin tone is brown or black, a matte dark green nail color will look gorgeous with your complexion. Offset the dark shade by painting the ring fingernail with a shimmery lighter green.
2. Matte Neon Nails
Are you the type of woman who loves to stand out in a crowd? A neon green will get you there! Add the piercing color to square long nails and watch its vibrancy take off.
3. Matte Green And Gold Nails
This light matte green brings in a subtle blue undertone for a peaceful shade. We love how this nail design pairs it with gold foils on the center nail and just as patches on the ring fingernail.
4. Green Christmas Nails
5. Light Green Matte Nails
A cool matte mint green nail design reminds us of summer days and treating ourselves to a sweet mint ice cream cone. The friendly shade is just right for your summer style.
6. Matte Green Nails with Glitter
You could go with a traditional red nail design for Christmas, but why would you when this matte forest green shows you how beautiful it looks with green glittered accent nails?
7. Matte Olive Green Nails
8. Matte Army Green Nails
For light or pale skin tones, consider an army green in matte for your nails. While the color will look pretty on short nails, it’s best seen on long coffin or square nails where there’s more space to display it.
9. Dark Green on Short Stiletto Nails
Forest green in matte is beautiful nail color for pale and light skin tones. The contrasting dark color against lightness makes the nails more dramatic and bold.
10. Green Acrylic Nails with Decals
Not into just a plainly colored nail? After choosing your preferred shade of green for acrylic nails, add nail decals or stickers. The above nail design is perfect for the holidays since it features a white accent nail with a cute green tree.
11. Matte Green with White Flowers
Liven up your matte olive green coffin nails with an intricate white flower on each nail. For the precise thin lines, it’s best to see a nail tech or purchase nail decals to place on.
12. Emerald Green Matte Nails
You can still have a beautiful matte nail design with short nails! For these cuties, round out the edges with a file first. Then paint with dark green in matte and draw on white snowflakes – the perfect wintry manicure!
