Definition of Greenies

  1. “Greenies” is the informal term used by many nail technicians to describe a nail that has become infected with pseudomonas, which looks green under a nail; usually occurs as a result of water or other moisture becoming trapped between an artificial nail and the natural nail; treatment does not always require removing the artificial nail.
