What color goes with dark blue for nails?

Dark blue is a color that is very easy to pair with other colors. There are so many complementary colors, especially neutral tones, including gold, silver, ivory, cream, tan, and grey. Pairing dark blue with neutrals creates a sophisticated and polished look as neutrals complement dark blue very well. 

If you want something bolder, you can easily pair dark blue with more vibrant colors. Green is one of our go-to colors to pair with dark blue because they’re both cool tones.

You can also pair dark blue with softer tones like blush and lilac. These color pairings have a more feminine and romantic vibe, making them a top choice for women.
