There’s something so effortlessly cool about black and green nails. They look great whether you’re dressing up or dressing down, and they go with just about everything. Plus, they’re perfect for when you want to add a little bit of edge to your look.
This versatility is definitely one of the reasons that black and green nail designs have been trending lately. And once you see the amazing designs and ideas below, you’ll be surprised.
But first things first…
Black and Green mixed in Fashion
When it comes to fashion, there are a few classic color combinations that always seem to work. Black and white, for example, are timeless and chic. Blue and white are nautical and fresh. Red and black are sexy and bold. But what about black and green? Is this a combination that can actually work?
As it turns out, black and green are surprisingly versatile color combinations that can be used in a variety of ways. For a more formal look, try pairing a black blazer with a pair of dark green trousers. Or, for a fun and flirty look, try a black dress with green accents. You can even go for an edgy look by pairing black jeans with a green leather jacket.
But colors tend to be associated with meanings behind them,
The Meaning of Combining Black and Green Colors
There are colors that when mixed together create a whole new color which gets a meaning of its own. But in this case, we’ll reference each color on its own.
The Meaning of the Color Black
Black is a color that is often associated with power, sophistication, and mystery. It is also a color that can be seen as intimidating or even depressing. When you wear black, you are conveying an air of confidence and control. You are saying that you are not to be messed with. You are serious and goal-oriented.

The Meaning of the Color Green
Green is a color that is most often associated with nature. It symbolizes growth, fertility, and new beginnings. It is also the color of money, so it can connote wealth and prosperity. When you wear green, you are sending a message of tranquility and abundance. You are at one with the natural world and open to new opportunities.
While green nails are not as popular as black (no color is), there are some dazzling designs you should check out.

Ombre Green and Black Nails
This is a beautiful and unique take on the black and green trend. Ombre nails, for those who don’t know, are when your nails are a gradient, with the color getting lighter and lighter (or darker and darker) as it goes from one end of your nail to the other. So in this case, for example, you would start with a black polish at the base of your nail, and then gradually add in green as you move towards the top.

You can’t cover the one without the other… Unlike black nails with green tips, this design of green nails with black tips is FAR more noticeable. It’s a great way to add a pop of color to your nails, without going too crazy.
BTW, green or not, black tip nails are IT these days!
