I have been asked quite a few times what color nail polish do I wear with a black dress? What color nail polish with a brown dress? Black-tie event? First date even? So I went to talk to one of my favorite nail techs over at Ella Blue here in Elk Grove to ask her opinion on colors of nail polish to that goes with what color dress.
Susan said that with a black dress or black tie event where you are wearing a black dress, red nail polish will always do well. Colors such as
Hot Candy Apple by BB Couture or Hot Salsa are good choices of reds. What you don’t want to be wearing are colors such as blues or greens. They take away from your overall look. Or you could always have a French Manicure done, that look is great for all colors of dresses.
Now if you are wearing a brown dress to a event that’s a little harder to choose. You will want a nail polish color that’s more of a orange look to it. Colors such as Pale Poppy by BB Couture is a good choice or Great Balls of Fire from the Flashback to the 50′s Collection by BB Couture is also a great choice. And again a French Manicure with your basic white tips is always a good choice as well. You also try a red that is like a blue red not a true red as your choice of nail polish. I wasn’t sure what she meant by a blue red so I can’t show you a color nail polish that would work for that.
First date was a interesting question. What color nail polish works on a first date? That is a highly personal question because it depends more on what type of person you want to show yourself as. Fun loving? Dragon’s Breath by BB Couture which happens to be our best selling nail polish to date is a great color for a first date. Specially this time of year. You can’t go wrong with a deep rich purple nail polish that any skin-tone could wear.
More of a quiet person? Again a French Manicure is a good idea. If you enjoy wearing pink nail polish then wear it on your first date! Pink shows you are a caring person with a love for life and not hard core. The better choices are not to go wild and wear nail polish colors that don’t
A~ go with your outfit or
B~ are chipped and need to be redone.
Remove your nail polish if your polish happens to be chipped because it shows you don’t care enough about how your hands look not to have your nails done. It’s better to go without nail polish than it is to have chipped nail polish specially dark colors. If you want your nail polish to stay chip-free longer you need to wear Top Rock by BB Couture! It really rocks because I have tested it out on Dragon’s Breath and my nails remained chip-free for about a week! Can your top coat do the same?
All these nail polishes would be great gift ideas as well. Nail polish gifts are great because they work all year around and why give a gift that they won’t use? Who doesn’t love nail polish?
I hope this helps answer your questions about what color nail polish do you wear with what color dress.
