Final thoughts

Polishes in the neutral zone that go with a Teal dress.

Forget about diamonds – when it comes to nail polish, neutrals are a girl’s best friend.

Neutral colors like black, white, and gray go with anything and everything.

So not only will your nails match your dress, they’ll match everything else in your closet too!

I love neutral nails so much I wrote a whole post about them.

You should check it out if you wanna learn more about matching nail polishes with your clothes.

It’s called 14 nail polish colors that go with any outfit.

Any neutral nail polish color (check prices) will work with a teal dress.


But some work slightly better than others.

That’s because of the undertones in the neutral color.

With that in mind, here are the best neutral nail polish colors to wear with your teal dress:

Bright White

Teal is a mix of blue and green.

The exact shade of teal can vary depending on the amount of blue and green in the mix.

White is a perfect choice to go with teal.

Because a pure, crisp, bright, white is going to work with every teal variation.

Try a stark white like these (check prices) or OPI’s Alpine snow.


Navy and teal together create a moody, dramatic, and monochromatic look.

I love having navy nails. They make me feel very sophisticated and classy.

Navy nails will look sophisticated and elegant with your Teal dress.

Especially good for more formal events.

Navy nails also work great with blue jeans!

Cool and mid-grays

Gray might not be the first color you think of to pair with Teal.

But a lot of grays have either blue or green undertones, so it can be a great match.

Look for a cool gray polish with a mid-tone like Zoya’s August.

Cool polish shades will complement the cool tones in Teal perfectly.

Stay away from warm-toned greys.

If it looks at all like brown or greige – then it’s probably warm-toned.

Tan, Beige, and Cream

Tan and teal work surprisingly well together.

Tan adds some warmth to the richness of Teal.

This is a great combination for spring and fall.

If you want a subtle look, go for a Beige nail with your Teal dress.

Beige nails are a classic, simple and understated choice.

Cream nails are another good option.

The yellow undertones in Cream make it a perfect match for Teal.

Paint your nails Cream for a relaxed and stylish look that doesn’t look like you tried too hard.

Want a look that’s a bit more unexpected?

Or maybe you just love shiny things!

If you’re feeling bold, why not try a metallic polish with your teal dress?

Gold and Silver both work well with Teal.

Teal and Gold together create a sophisticated look that’s timeless and classy.

Gold with Teal is also great for warm skin tones.

Silver will give you a more modern and contemporary look. Silver also works better for cool-toned skin.

Not sure what your skin tone is? Take a look at the veins in your wrist.

Do they look green or blue in natural light?

Green means warm, blue means cool.

Copper also looks amazing with teal.

Try painting your nails in a copper polish like Autumn from Zoya.

This metallic shade works especially well against warm skin tones.

I have cool-toned skin, and I love Essie’s Penny Talk.

It looks amazing with a Teal dress too.

Teal and pink is one of my favorite color combos.

Depending on the shades, Teal and Pink can look soft and dreamy, or modern and funky.

Does your Teal dress look more green than blue?

If yes, try pairing it with pink nail polish.

Light shades of pink, like blush, will add a touch of femininity and sweetness to your look.

Brighter shades will give a bolder, more eye-catching look.


Teal and purple both have blue undertones.

This means that they complement each other beautifully.

A jewel-toned purple polish can be the perfect accompaniment to a Teal dress.

I like this cool-toned amethyst from Zoya.

Even though it’s not a neutral color, red is a classic staple in the nail world.

I’m always surprised at how many outfits I can wear with my red nails.

Teal and red is a bold, high-contrast combination.

Try a warm brick-red like Zoya’s Tamsen or a terracotta shade.

For a bolder look, ruby red nail polish will perfectly complement your Teal dress.

Orange pops so well next to teal, your nails are sure to get noticed!

Pretty much all Orange nail polish shades will work.

But for the best match, look for reddy-oranges like Vermillion.

Any shade of Coral nail polish will look amazing with a Teal dress.

If your dress is dark Teal, go for a bright orange.

And if it’s a lighter shade, you could try a fun Tangerine like Zoya’s Cam to add punch.

Yellow nail polish is a fun and eye-catching idea you can try.

In summer, go for bright, sunshine yellows with a Teal dress.

In fall and winter try a darker yellow or mustard.

Teal has a lot of blue in it.

So wearing blue nail polish with your teal dress is going to give you a semi-monochrome look.

The best shades to pair with Teal are Powder Blue and Royal Blue.

Light, Powder, or Sky Blue nail polish works best with lighter Teal shades.

It will give you a laid-back vibe that’s soft and pretty.

Royal blue nail polish will give you a bolder, stronger, and more striking look.

Yellowy greens

Greens that have a lot of yellow in them work great with Teal.

Lime green, for example, could be a good polish option.

Or chartreuse.

Look for polish shades that are green but look yellow, they often have names like apple or pear.

Final thoughts

Teal is a very versatile color.

So you have a ton of options for nail polish colors that will match your dress.

I hope you found the info in the post useful and inspiring.

Keep this post in mind when you are choosing what accessories to go with your Teal dress.
