This is why you'll never see the Duchess of Cambridge with brightly painted nails...
Kate Middleton has, undoubtedly, become one of the most influential women in the UK when it comes to fashion and beauty.
The Duchess is spotted in something. It’s an instant sell-out.
She changes her hair. We’re taking that photo to the hairdressers.
But it seems as though there’s one beauty treatment that you won’t be seeing K-Middy indulge in. And that’s a fancy ol’ manicure.
You might have already noticed that neither the Duchess of Cambridge or Queen Elizabeth are spotted with brightly coloured nail varnish or fake nails.
The publication reports that a false mani’ and coloured polish is deemed ‘vulgar’ by the royal family.
But there is one shade of nail varnish that has got the royal stamp of approval.
According to the report, beauty brand Essie claimed that the Queen’s hairdresser sent them a letter to request their shade Ballet Slippers.
Apparently it’s ‘the only colour Her Majesty would wear.’
The super pale nude/pink shade will go with practically any outfit, and Queen Elizabeth is said to have been using it since 1989.
In fact, Kate seemed to follow in the Queen’s footsteps by requesting the very same shade for her wedding day back in 2011.
And at just £7.99 from high street beauty hotspot Boots, you can snap some up for yourself.
Yup. We predict a sell-out.
We mean, who wouldn’t want royal nails…?
