Final thoughts

Neutral polish colors that work with a Champagne dress.

Not sure what color is gonna match your dress or an outfit?

Go with a neutral.

Neutrals are my go-to for nails because they work with anything and everything I throw at them!

No matter what color your dress is, neutrals are going to work.

I love neutral nail polish colors so much, I wrote a whole post about them.

You really can’t go wrong with black, white, navy, silver, beige, or nude nails with your Champagne dress.

But depending on the tones in your dress, some neutrals make work a little bit better than others.

So which neutrals look best with Champagne?

Let’s find out!

Cream and off-white

Champagne is borderline neutral, so it’s very versatile.

This is great news because it means that you have a lot of options when it comes to color matching.

Cream and off-white are also neutrals.

They are very similar to Champagne, so they both work really well to create a tonal look.

Cream has yellow undertones.

When paired with Champagne, cream creates a sophisticated, elegant, and conservative look.

Off-white is more of a group of colors than a particular shade.

It’s any shade of white that has a bit of color added.

Bright, bold white can be a bit overpowering with Champagne.

Adding a hint of color to white creates a softer, less dramatic feel.

Names for off whites include vanilla, ivory, and eggshell.

They often contain the yellow undertones that work perfectly with Champagne.

Do you want all eyes on your dress?

Painting your nails in a cream or off-white will make you look perfectly put together.

Without drawing attention to your nails.


Beige and Champagne look very similar, but they are actually quite different tonally.

Beige has brown undertones as well as yellow.

This gives beige a natural and rustic feel.

The rustic quality of Beige contrasts with the luxurious feel of Champagne.

Pairing these 2 colors together gives you a perfect balance.

To create an expensive and elegant look.


Black and Champagne together is a tad art deco.

This is because the golden tones in Champagne work as a less bold version of the classic art deco combo – black and gold.

If you want a touch of vintage elegance, then include a little black in your nail design.

Navy is one of my favorite neutrals.

It’s perfect for formal events because it screams elegance, class, and sophistication.

Navy and Champagne work especially well together.

Because of the yellow undertones in Champagne.

These yellow tones are perfectly complemented by navy blue.

Because blue is the complimentary color for yellow on the color wheel.

My favorite navy is No More Film from Essie.

Warm grays

Warm grays are gray shades with yellow undertones.

Because warm grays have yellow in them, they are a natural pairing with Champagne.

Rock some dark or mid-gray nails with your Champagne dress for a seriously stunning look.

Here’s an example of a warm, dark gray nail polish easily suede from Essie.

A lot of gray nail polish has some warm tones like brown and yellow mixed in, making it warm-toned.

Before you paint your nails, make sure to check out the description of the polish you’re gonna use, and go for a gray shade that has some warm undertones, like brown or yellow.

Trust me, it’ll look amazing against warm-toned skin!

Complementary nail polish colors that work with a Champagne dress

Complimentary colors are colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel.

Champagne has a lot of yellow tones, which means that it goes beautifully with most shades of blue.


This is because blue and yellow are complementary colors.

Try painting your nails in a light blue for a soft feminine and dreamy look.

Or royal blue for a more dramatic statement.

There are so many shades of blue that look amazing with Champagne!

You can even try out blue-greens like aqua and teal.

Muted earthy polish colors that go with a Champagne dress

Muted earthy shades will look awesome with your dress!


Use them on your nails if you want to tone things down a bit or to create a natural, more grounded look.

Think browns, beiges, sage and other natural eco-type greens.

Also muted oranges like apricot and peach.

Bare With Me is a nice apricot polish from Essie.

When it comes to brown shades, anything with words like caramel, chestnut and chocolate should do the trick…

 …is anyone else hungry?

Most shades of green will work with Champagne from emerald to mint.

So it just depends on the look you want.

An emerald green like Stay Off the Lawn by OPI is understated.

But something like Essie’s mint candy apple polish will add a colorful accent.

If you’re feeling like your look is a bit too muted, you can jazz things up a bit.

Just add in some copper or bronze to the nail art.

Pastel polish colors that go with a Champagne dress


Pastels that work well with champagne are baby blues, pinks, and lavender.

Also you could try coral and even muted lime!

Pink pairs so well with champagne – especially light and pale pinks.

I love pink and Champagne together when I’m feeling girly.

They create a great, ultra-feminine look for a wedding, engagement or a romantic photoshoot.

Add in some silver or platinum jewelry to dial up the glamor!

Lavender and Champagne also scream wedding to me.

But you can also use lavender nails to complement a spring or summer dress.

Metallic polishes that work with a Champagne dress.

Since Champagne is itself neutral, pretty much anything goes when it comes to metallics.

However, the metallic shades that will look best with your dress will depend on the tone of champagne.

This is because tones of Champagne can vary in the amount and goldenness of the yellow.

Personally, I favor warm-toned metallics.

They gel nicely with the yellow tones in all shades of champagne.

But there are some instances where silver will really pop, so feel free to experiment.

As a safe bet – go with metallic polishes in gold, rose gold, or ivory.

If you’re feeling more daring – try a metallic green, blue or pastel.

I love metallic copper (Penny Talk) from Essie.

You could go for a highly contrasting color or a bold metallic to finish the look.

Final thoughts

Wow, that was a lot of info!

You made it to the end – well done.

I hope you’re feeling inspired and have some fab ideas for what nail polish to pair with your Champagne dress!

Time to have some fun and rock that beautiful Champagne dress, babe! You’re gonna knock ’em dead! 💅💥
