  • lol I don't think there is a signature funeral nail polish color. whatever you wear will be fine, and appropriate. i'm pretty sure the last thing anybody is going to be thinking of is your fingernails...

  • If you are worried then wear something low key,,maybe a dark plum,,,nothing bright, that might get attention...

  • I wouldn't wear any color that would draw attention to me. It's about the deceased so I'd go more neutral tones

  • I'm going to have to go for the smart-a** answer and say it depends....is the dearly departed someone else...or is it me? Cuz if it's me, I'm getting cremated so I don't think anybody will be able to see my fingernails. lol sorry, I mean...somebody had to say it.

  • ROFL @ Daisy!

    Well, something neutral would be nice. If it's open casket, can you find out what the deceased is wearing? That way you won't clash.

  • I don't paint my nails or wear jewelery to a funeral.

  • Just something soft or clear. A nice French manicure is sophisticated but not harsh.  Don't wear black.
