10 Classy Nail Colors That Go With Everything

Last Updated on May 24, 2022 by SulaBeauty Staff

Nail manicures make us look fresh, elegant, and well put together. However, in the world that we live in, we are always running from one work to another throughout the day. But everybody wants to look their best when they have some leisure time. 

The growing nail industry has made it possible, and we are now introduced to gel polishes that don’t chip and stay longer for up to two weeks or more. That means we can look elegant without worrying about our nails for up to 21 days.  

However, there is a drawback to getting a manicure that lasts for weeks. The nail color doesn’t go with every outfit we plan to wear during those days, which would feel like being stuck with the same color and not benefiting from it. So, in this article, I will introduce you to 10 timeless classy nail colors that will go with everything

Our 10 Favorite Nail Colors that Go With Everything 


 1. White Tip Nails/French Manicure 

First on our list had to be the most popular – French Manicure. It is considered one of the most elegant, classic, and, at the same time, the safest manicure choice out of all. Whitetip nails go with every outfit, from Indian to western wear; you can rock everything with these nails.

It is highly suitable for those who want to look professionally decent at their jobs. I am genuinely a fan of ombre French nails; whenever I am out of options, I go back to this shade.  These nails are perfect for both lighter skin types and dark skin tone. It can be applied to both fingers or toes.


2. Light Grey Nails 

Another versatile shade is light grey; it can go well with bright colors and neutral colors. The lighter shade of grey is suitable for the spring season, and darker shades of grey are highly preferred in the autumn and winter season. 

You won’t have to worry about changing color after getting light grey nails as they keep up with most of the color ranges and go professionally well.  


3. Beige Or Nude Nails 

Nude or beige tones are the most preferred shades in all the seasons. They never go off the trend, and neutral nail polish colors are loved by more than half of the population. So, whenever you get confused about which shade to get during a manicure, go for neutral nail colors – Beige or nude and pair them with some gold jewelry. This nail polish color will make you look so well put together and classic at the same time.  

4. Blush Nails 

Not all the shades of pink go with every outfit; however, blush pink is a lighter and a more subtle shade of pink that goes gorgeously well with most outfits. 

So, if you are somebody who adores pink, this type of neutral nail will get you obsessed, no kidding! Also, they go perfectly well with any color of the dress in your wardrobe, I have experimented with this theory.

5. Lilac Nails 

Lilac, the most in-trend color of this year and one of the subtle shades in nail colors, goes well with everything. It is an underrated shade, and most people fear getting lilac nails as they are unsure if it would go with their outfits. 

Let me clear this doubt for you all, don’t get a dark shade of lilac to choose a more subtle version of lilac with undertones of blush pink, and you’ll be stunned to see how beautiful it looks.

6. Classic red Nails 

Nothing can go wrong about classic red nails; they look sexy, elegant, luxurious, and suitable shade for all skin colors. Red nails instantly boost confidence as it is considered one of the bold nail colors that represent femininity. 

So, whenever you feel low and under-confident, choose a bold red nail color and slay it with every outfit in your wardrobe.  

7. Bordeaux Nails 

On our list of timeless colors, Bordeaux is another shade perfect for nails in the autumn and winter season. Bordeaux is a shade of red commonly known as ‘Burgundy’; it’s a mix of red with undertones of purple/violet. It’s one of those bold and elegant shades that give you a royal and luxurious look over the nails. 

8. Chocolate Brown Nails 

This shade is a favorite and most used shade for teenagers and women in their 20s, including me. It’s an autumn-appropriate shade as it gives out very warm vibes. They look super elegant and stylish while styling with chunky sweaters and gold jewelry with rings. It’s a shade that looks classic with every color of outfit and is suitable for all skin tones.  

9. Navy Blue Nails 

Let us talk about another dark shade that rules over every other nail color and can be matched with everything. If you want to get a basic manicure but are bored of getting white ombre or brown nails then, navy blue nail color comes to the rescue. Keep this nail shade basic without getting a nail art over it, and keep it subtle!
