Kendall Jenner just showed off her latest manicure, posing in a picture she posted to her Instagram story alongside BFF and fellow supermodel Hailey Bieber as well as 'Intruded' singer Justine Skye.

While we loved Hailey's deep onyx manicure (a departure from Mrs. Bieber's glazed donut nails) and Justine's nail art, here at Hello! Fashion our eyes were firmly fixated on Kendall’s stunning green nail polish which she shared with her 258 million followers. The manicure evoked the colour of a matcha latte. Soft, creamy and with a hint of smoke, the light khaki mani works well when paired with beiges and browns in your winter wardrobe, though it is so versatile that it simply complements every style.

That khaki, light moss, green matcha colour isn't just easy on the eyes. Research in colour psychology suggests that colours evoke psychological reactions, affecting moods and emotions. According to research from Very Well Mind, "the colour green can positively affect thinking, relationships, and physical health. Green is also thought to relieve stress and help heal. You'll often find green in the decor of medical facilities." Shades of green can help put people at ease in a new places. For this reason, designers often feature green in public spaces such as restaurants and hotels.

If you adore the abundant benefits your matcha latte delivers you every day, now you can channel your love of that energising powder with a sartorial nod to its green goodness.
