I was engaged in my 20s (although we broke things off) and my e-ring back then was a blue sapphire in a halo. Very much like a Diana/Kate ring. I’ve always worn unusual nail polish colors and I don’t recall ever feeling like a particular color didn’t work with the sapphire ring.

I have a light blue sapphire and I must admit that I haven’t worn a lot of pink on my nails since being engaged because it felt like I was playing Disney princess dress up, but yours is darker and it’s on the more neutral side, so you should be fine. Unless there’s a specific range of colors that you want to wear all the time that doesn’t go well with a blue sapphire (according to you, not someone else) don’t worry about it.

Over the last year or so, I have jumped onto the colored gemstones train with both feet. I love them! I am also a woman of many rings and a gal who looooves nail polish. Out of the rings I wear as part of wedding jewelry, I have a purple stone, a blue stone, and a yellow stone. I pretty much wear any nail polish color I want with any of them and don’t worry too much about matching or clashing. I can’t remember ever looking down at my ring and nails combination and thinking that it didn’t go with my colored gemstone.
At the same time, I think this is a personal preference and a personal comfort zone thing. For me, wedding jewelry is a “neutral”. It has special meaning, so it goes with everything. Once you have your beautiful stone and ring, I bet it won’t take any time at all for you to feel comfortable with the colors mixing and matching.

I can understand feeling that way at first, but you’ll get used to it over time. It probably wont limit you anymore than anything else…like skin tone. Personally, I’m really pale & most nudes wash me out. That beautiful blue will become apart of you and you wont even notice.
