Cool greens have no yellow in their undertone, they have a bluish appearance, but they are still blue. Teal is the color in between warm blue and cool green and can be worn by both warm and cool undertones. Teal Teal by imogenl featuring blue handbags

Because warm blue is still a blue based colour, those with a cool undertone can generally wear both warm and cool blues, but people with a warm undertone look best with only warm blues, no cool ones.
