Looking to get regal in a royal blue dress? The rich shade can be absolutely stunning and is a fun alternative to the conventional LBD. Unfortunately, picking out a fancy frock doesn't exactly guarantee a fab look. Every detail counts, even down to your fingers. So, find the perfect nail polish color for your royal blue dress to perfectly top off your look.


Try making your dress the main focal point of your look and opt for a neutral shade. Nude is a fab option. It's chic but also incredibly subtle, giving your nails a clean and polished look without showing off a lot of color. If nude isn't quite your thing, switch it up with a soft gray instead.


How about another shade of blue? This doesn't have to be matchy. Instead of perfectly matching your dress, opt for a darker variation of blue like navy. Navy is incredibly fashionable and chic, so you'll definitely be right on trend. Plus, slicking on a navy also adds a little dose of edginess to your look.


Try a bright pop of color with a classic red. Since red and blue are complementary colors, they both work incredibly well together. Plus, wearing red on your tips is a fantastic means of getting a little bit glam and making yourself look totally grown-up and fancy. Try a super bright red with orange undertones or tone it down a bit with a richer shade like cranberry.

No Color

If polish isn't your thing, don't fret. A clean, unpolished nail can be just as amazing as a brightly colored one. Get yourself a French manicure to still rock clean nails without all that pomp and circumstance. It's a no-muss/no-fuss way to keep your look neat but incredibly subtle and understated.
