Have you been invited to a wedding or a formal party and don’t know what nail polish color to use with your light blue dress? If that’s the case, you are in the right place. From the most discreet to the most daring, I will list here the best nail color suggestions for a perfect look.
For a delicate look, you can match your light blue dress with a nude, white, or lilac nail polish. If you are looking for something bold and more appropriate for a glamorous evening party, choose burgundy, red, dark blue, hot pink, or fuchsia nail polish.
Next, I will explain when to choose each one according to the occasion and, of course, your personal taste. There will also be plenty of suggestions for bridesmaids or guests, so you can look your best on that special day!
What color nail polish goes with a light blue dress?
Because your personal taste is as important as the occasion, there is no right or wrong when it comes to choosing the perfect nail polish color for your look.
Unless you have been invited to be a bridesmaid, where it is recommended to choose something more discreet, the perfect nail color for your light blue dress will be the one that makes you feel most comfortable and gorgeous.
However, as you are probably looking for inspiration, I prepared a list with the best nail polish color suggestions for you, from the most classic to the most daring.
If unsure, know that you can’t go wrong matching your light blue dress with nude nail polish. In fact, this classic nail color can be used on any occasion and gives you a discreet yet elegant look.
So, if you were invited to be a bridesmaid, a nude nail polish with pink, beige, or gray shades will be perfect to keep the attention on your dress and not deprive the bride of the spotlight.
The nude shade that I love the most is pink. It will perfectly match the lightness of your light blue dress, giving you a delicate and romantic feel.
TIP: A nude nail polish will also allow you to be a little more daring when choosing the accessories. For an elegant look, an emerald green clutch and earrings with details in the same color will be a perfect choice for a wedding or a formal evening party.
For a warmer and bolder look, you can pair your pale blue or light blue dress with vibrant red nail polish. This intense nail color will give you a powerful and refined look, especially if you choose golden accessories.
Associated with passion and sensuality, this nail color will be perfect for an occasion that calls for an elegant look, such as a glamorous evening party or a wedding (except for bridesmaids).
As I mentioned above, red nails will go perfectly with gold jewelry and a gold clutch, giving you a refined look that will hardly go unnoticed.
TIP: I recommend a brighter red nail polish for warmer skin tones. For cooler skin tones, the ideal is to choose a darker one.
Is red nail polish too intense or bold for you? So burgundy is an excellent alternative for a less flashy but glamorous look.
In fact, if the occasion is a formal party in the colder months, you can’t go wrong with this elegant and powerful nail color.
However, keep in mind that, like red, this color will create more contrast with your dress. If you are going to be a bridesmaid, I would recommend a more subtle nail polish, like nude or a classic French nail.
For a light and delicate summer look, you can match your light blue dress with white nail polish, opting for a classic French manicure.
In fact, if the occasion is a wedding in the countryside or on the beach, you can’t go wrong when choosing French nails, especially if you’re a bridesmaid.
Like nudes, this is a versatile and subtle option that will match any dress and is suitable for any occasion.
Finally, for an elegant and sophisticated look, you can match it with silver accessories, whether it’s a clutch, jewelry, or even shoes.

5. Lilac and purple
For a delicate summer look, you can choose a nail color that is very trendy right now: lilac.
In fact, lilac nails will be in perfect harmony with the lightness and softness of a light blue dress, being a beautiful match for a wedding in the countryside or on the beach.
If you want to create more contrast without being too daring, you can also choose an elegant purple nail polish. This one will go very well with your dress and will be suitable for almost any occasion.
Another classic and safe option is choosing a nail polish color similar to your dress.
In that case, you need to be careful to choose a nail color in a different shade than your dress, to create some contrast and not make the look too dull.
So, my recommendation is that you choose dark blue nail polish. This will make your look very harmonious and sophisticated, especially when paired with silver jewelry.
If you want to get away from the classic nail colors, you can combine your light blue dress with a more daring one, like green.
Although not as popular as red or lilac, I love seeing how lime green nail polish brings that lightness and freshness of summer to the look. However, take into account the occasion, as this is going to be a bolder option.
I would choose this nail color if invited to a daytime wedding in the countryside or on the beach. In addition to matching very well, lime green is trendy right now, not only for nail polishes but also for dresses and accessories.
8. Hot Pink and Fuchsia
I left one of my favorite (and boldest) nail polishes for last:: hot pink and fuchsia!
Despite being more eye-catching, these will perfectly match the lightness and softness of your light blue dress, giving you a romantic and feminine look.
If you choose this nail color, my recommendation is to be a little more restrained when choosing other accessories, especially when it comes to the purse.
To do so, you can look elegant by wearing a navy-blue clutch. Pair it with golden jewelry, and you have the perfect outfit for a glamorous evening party!
