Just that really! What colour nails would people get for a wedding when wearing a navy dress and nude heels? A French? Nude nails too? Or something else?

I'd say red as well.

I'm cool/neutral toned so would go for a hot pink or magenta.

Coral! And coral lippy

With navy blue I would usually say silver but not if you're wearing nude shoes.
So I think I'd go for either.

Red - only because of the nude heels.
Don't you have any other shoes to wear!

Nude/French manicure for me.

I'm wearing a navy dress for a forthcoming wedding.

I'm teaming it with red suede heels, a red clutch and red nails( plus red lips).

Sorry to derail, but where are your red suede shoes from please?! I'm also wearing navy to a wedding soon and struggling to think of what shoes to wear that won't make my dress look a bit officey. I've seen some bright pink suede shoes that I'm tempted by, but think I'll get more use from red in the long run. Thank you!

(And another vote for red or pale pink nails.)

Hi I bought them off a work colleague who bought them from a website called everything a fiver.

The site itself is a bit of a nightmare. You have to trawl through everything, a bit like the Next sale.

Luckily for me she did all the hard work and they are gorgeous!
Everyone comments on them when I wear them.

Red nails definitely.
I have a pair of fab red suede heels I got in Primark to go with a navy dress they are fab.

Thanks for all the replies - red seems to be a bit of a winner. I do love coral too actually.
To whoever said 'Don't you have any other shoes to wear!' - yes, of course I do, however I have chosen to wear nude ones. Hth

Thank you for the red shoes help - I've not heard of that site before so will go hunting!

Sounds mental but I wore gold polish on my nails with a Navy dress & nude heels at a recent wedding - gold jewellery too. Really worked. Had no use for it since though!
