Nail colour to complement navy bridesmaids dress

As my thread title suggests really!

Bride is very easy going and doesn't really mind what colour I go for. Dress is on the slightly brighter side of navy.
Having gel polish done tomorrow and was considering a navy polish but I'm concerned it may be a little too 'vampy' for a wedding.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Definitely neutral. Either clear, French polish or simple pale pink

Yes, a pale pink was what I was thinking, I'm not really a fan of French polish, it never looks quite right on my nails as they're not a very elegant shape, if that makes sense!

I'd go for a pinky nude colour. There are some lovely ones around.

Nude it is!

Thanks all smile

I'd go for bright pink. Looks fab with navy

A bright raspberry pink will look gorgeous with navy.

No not neutral, I love navy.
Would agree with the raspberry colour. You want bright not dull.
A lovely rich pinky red.
Enjoy the day.

My bridesmaids wore navy, I put raspberry pink shoes and nails with them, it was fab

Lime green - also lovely with navy

I'd go for raspberry or gold.

This is nice.

It's Goddess by Kate Moss for Rimmel.

WhatTheChickens Fri 20-Oct-17 08:22:23

Ok, the shoes are gold if that changes things?
A couple of the other bridesmaids aren't wearing any polish (there's 6 of us) I was worried that a very bold or bright colour might make me stand out in photos etc

BrieAndChilli Fri 20-Oct-17 08:23:45

What colour are the flowers etc? I’d go for something that matches those

Stringofpearls Fri 20-Oct-17 08:24:12

If the shoes are good if probably be tempted to go for a matte gold nail varnish to tie it all in together.

Button holes are yellow and peacock, she isn't having a traditional bouquet (allergies!)

Another vote for nude esp with those flowers smile

Blush. Gold shoes with navy dresses sounds gorgeous! Can we see a link?! I’m nosy!
