Natural-looking polish only
Forget flashy colors or glittery polishes—natural-looking polish is the mani of choice for the royal family. Queen Elizabeth II is noted to favor Essie’s “Ballet Slippers,” a pretty polish with a soft pink hue. According to the Essie website, back in 1989 the “Queen’s hairdresser sent the brand a letter requesting a bottle of the polish as it is ‘the only colour Her Majesty would wear.'”
However, when it comes to the royal tootsies things may be a little more lenient. The Duchess of Cambridge, sometimes referred to as Princess Kate Middleton, was spotted going au natural on her toes when she took off her shoes during a visit to the Gandhi Smiriti museum in India. However, according to Everythingbritish.blogspot.com, Kate attended a London premiere a few years back, rocking a dark red shade of polish from her peep toe heels. Perhaps there’s a tad more “toe” wiggle room when it comes to pedicures. You can buy the nail polish the Duchess of Cambridge wore on her wedding day.
