If the MCO 2.0 has left you in a creative slump, here are some fresh (and green) nail ideas to get your cogs turning again

It is no secret that 2020 sucked. In quick summary, last year was essentially just headline after headline, each more devastating than the last. Now, a month into 2021, it's not looking like the overall circumstances are changing much—however, though things aren't looking up just yet, that's no reason to stop looking forward. That's why our colour of the year is green.

Green has come to symbolise many things. Nature, jealousy, and Christmas are probably the first three associations to pop into your head, but what we've actually come to love about the shade is something else it represents—renewal, growth, and new beginnings. In 2021, we're looking forward to a better year (if only marginally) and jumping in head-first, wearing our new favourite hue.
