Ideas for Baby Blue Nails
It’s just as suitable for winter months as it is for summers. And choose hundreds of other palette shades to pair with this beauty.

Get a smooth jelly finish of baby blue nail polish on your oval nails. Note that oval and small nails are the most common trims that are painted in baby blue colors.
2. Oval with Crème Baby Blue
Baby blue is an innocent and naïve color. If you are heading to a party, you would like a jelly finish. For casual gatherings, a crème finish seems most suitable.
3. Baby Blue on Coffin Nails
This is a crème finish of the plain baby blue polish. The coffin nails are smaller than usual.
4. Ballerina Baby Blue Nails
No one stops you from painting baby blue nail polish on other trims than just oval and small nails.
The occasional appearance of this polish on long ballerina nails also looks attractive and elegant.
5. Small Baby Blue Nails
Small nails look gorgeous with baby blue polish even when they aren’t trimmed in an oval shape. Use a crème finish for a more innocent appearance.
Or you can choose a jelly finish if you are in the mood to show off.
6. Baby Blue, Beige and Pink
Why not include other pastel colors as well when you are at it! You may think that beige is not the most common pastel color. But it looks pretty alongside pink and blue, isn’t it?
In this nail design, the middle nails are painted in pink and blue colors while the index and pinky fingers get splashes of pink, beige, and blue colors.
7. Baby Blue Can Be Glittery
Show off your girly side with glittery blue polish. You can paint your nails with pure blue glitter polish.
8. Baby Blue Glitter
Or you can go with glitter on the ring finger with other fingers showing off plain blue jelly polish.
9. Baby Blue Glitter and Sheer
One of the most common – yet stylish – combos appears when we mix glitter polish with sheer polish.
You can do this by painting glitter tips on sheer nails. Or you can paint glitter French tips on a sheer coat.
Feel free to mix up these two styles on different nails on your hands.
10. Mixing the Baby Blue Styles
This nail design mixes all designs of glitter and sheer polishes with the baby blue shade.
First, it uses triangular tips of plain blue polish on the sheer polish of pinky and ring fingers.
Then, it coats the middle finger with glitter. The index finger then gets a French tip of blue glitter against sheer polish.
11. Glitter and Accessories
For those of you who prefer glossy styles, glitter is the way to go. If you still feel the need for more gloss, accessorize the glittery finish with diamonds and other nail art accessories.
This acrylic nail design, for example, uses a mix of rhinestones and diamonds to enhance the beauty of the ring fingernail’s bottom.
12. Snowflakes and Glitter
Oftentimes, the Christmas season is associated with blue colors. You would argue that blue for Christmas is either Catalina Blue or USAF Air Force Blue.
You aren’t wrong nor are those people who want to include baby blue in the Christmas palette.
This acrylic nail design acknowledges the beauty of baby blue during the Christmas season with snowflakes painted on the sheer polish of the index finger.
Other fingers get a glitter finish or an ombre between blue and pink.
