You can customize your colors in the same manner as Tailwind CSS. Please refer to the Tailwind CSS documentation for more information.

Platform Colors

Unlike the web, which uses a common color palette, native platforms have their own unique system colors which as access through PlatformColor

NativeWind allows you to use access PlatformColor via the special platformColor() syntax in your theme.

// tailwind.config.js

const { platformSelect } = require("nativewind");

module.exports = {
theme: {
extend: {
colors: {
error: platformSelect({
// Now you can provide platform specific values
ios: "platformColor(systemRed)",
android: "platformColor(?android:colorError)",
default: "red",

There are no quotes between the brackets in platformColor(systemRed)
