What colour nail polish do you wear with black dress?


Confused which nail polish colour to wear with your black dress for formal event.

You know you can not go wrong with a little black dress, but you are sure how to style your nails.

Since your at a formal event, a classic ivory like Hip Newcomer nail polish a great match with ivory pearls.

It’s classy and a safe choice.

Here are more nail colour ideas when wearing black outfit.

Is white polish the perfect choice for all black dresses? Of course, not!

It all depends on the style you want to convey.

Different Events and Different Moods

You may wear an appropriate black power suit for a crucial meeting at work.

Then jump straight to the formal event in the evening.

They are both basic black outfits, but they couldn’t be more different.

You wouldn’t wear the same shoes and jewelry to both events.

But think of your nails differently.

Nudes and Whites

White nails and a black frock will always ring as classic and refined.

The color complements the dress without detracting from it and works well with subtle make-up, such as light pink gloss and silver-tinged eyeshadow.

You can try a solid white or an irridescent hue that is reminiscent of pearl, or any other pastel creme.

You can even add a touch of grey in the mix to off-set the severity of the black in the dress, or jazz it up with a silver holographic if you feel that grey is too plain.

Shades of Red

There is real power in classic cherry red nail polish. Trends may come and go, but red will always be here to stay!

For evening, try a deeper shade of scarlet, such as cranberry or a deep burgundy.

Candy apple red is fun, but deep maroon and plum shades promote such a sexy, mysterious vibe when paired with a black dress, that they are my go-to for first dates.

Something Completely Different

Sometimes a bold manicure can really bring out the life in your simple little black dress.

If you like taking style risks, truly any color can match a black dress except for black itself.

Perhaps bold yellows may distract from your outfit, but sometimes a simple lavender, electric blue, or mint green can add personality to an otherwise common wardrobe staple.

After all, almost everyone would default to a red or pink hue.


Another way to stand out is to paint your toes in a basic red, while adorning your fingers with a classic French manicure.

The contrast is vibrant, yet not unheard of.

Just think, no one ever said that all 20 nails had to match!
