Mint green, slime green, Crayola yellow, juicy peach, red, pink, black, white… There has never been any shortage of trendy color schemes when it comes to our nail aesthetic. It seems as though every season, one color reigns supreme before being replaced by something newer and fresher the following year. However, one nail color that still has yet to really have its moment is blue. Sure, pastel blue and turquoise are always in the mix come spring and summer, while indigo and navy come into play once the weather cools, but we're here to say we'd like the year to be all about blue and every iteration of the shade imaginable.
Not only do blue nail colors look great all year round, but they're also incredibly flattering and can even serve as a great alternative to other beloved natural hues like white, gray, and black. So with head-turning blue nail colors swimming top-of-mind for our next at-home manicure, we're sharing 15 of our favorite blue nail polishes in every finish and hue imaginable. Keep scrolling to find your next favorite!
Long-wearing and high-gloss, Olive & June's best-selling shade BP is an icy light blue that's magical on every skin tone. According to my fellow Who What Wear beauty editor, Courtney Higgs, it's one of the few blue nail colors that "doesn't make [her] feel like a preteen who broke into [her] mom's nail polish stash."
Not only is this pretty shade of electric-blue nail polish extremely on point for the season, but Deborah Lippmann's gel-inspired formula is also fortified with nourishing agents like evening primrose, keratin, biotin, green tea extract, aucoumea, and rice protein.
This mother of pearl–inspired shade is pretty enough to make us buy it immediately, and the fact that this beloved color from Base Coat is also long-wearing, vegan, cruelty-free, and 8-free offers even more incentive.
In addition to being one of the most prismatic and drool-inducing blue nail colors on our radar, there are other reasons to love this nail polish from Static Nails. A) It promises three times longer wear, and B) it has seriously luxurious ingredients like real amethyst crystal for energy healing (casual, we know), balm mint (for restoration and shine), and black currant (for strength and nourishment).
