We had black dresses with champagne sashes. the bride said we can do whatever we want with our hair (she had half up, half down so we all had a mix of down, half down, all up, etc) and she said nude or soft pink polishes please. Don’t tell them specifically what color to use…just give them a general color. It’s nails, nobody will notice that much. And as for hair, take into mind their types of hair. I have friends who would die if i made them wear their curly frizzy-prone hair down for a summer wedding. Why do you want them all to have down hair? What about a range of styles?  I just like when they’re all wearing the same dresses that you give them some leeway, especially if you’re making them pay for it themselves

The polish should probably be nude or a light and sheer color. If their hair looks good down, have them wear it down. As ejs said, they don’t all have to have the same hairstyle.

I think something close to a natural nail color will look best, but they will probably all appreciate if you don’t get too specific. Unless their nails are a bright crazy color like orange or blue or something (Laughing) no one will really see it.

And hair down should be fine… it just depends on the formality of the wedding as to how you ask them to do their hair.

I’d let them choose whatever they are comfortable with. No one will notice their nail polish.

Personally, I think any hairstyle and/or nail color will work fine with your color combo.  My gals wore black dresses and each did whatever she wanted for her hair/nails.  For me, that was a level of detail that I didn’t really notice/care about.  Some gals had french manicures, some had bright pink.  I wanted the ladies to be comfortable with their hair–some people like to have it up and it drives other people crazy.  I bet your Bridesmaid or Best Man will appreciate having some choices if you’re okay with it.
