Princess Eugenie Is a Royal Nail Art Rebel—But Will She Go Safe On Her Wedding Day?
There’s a reason you’ll never see The Duchess of Cambridge or The Duchess of Sussex wearing the latest metallic or marble manicure trend: the Queen allegedly won’t allow it. Royals are expected to wear their nails neat, clean, and groomed at all times. That is, unless you’re Princess Eugenie.
The royal beauty rebel likes to have fun with her nails on special occasion—sporting a Union Jack manicure for the Jubilee in 2012 and a Christmas-inspired manicure (complete with a cute reindeer!) back in 2015 to have a holiday lunch with the Queen. If anyone can pull-off a royal nail art manicure for their wedding day, it’s Princess Eugenie. Though she’ll likely follow in the footsteps of Kate and Meghan and choose a pale pink Essie nail polish shade when she weds fiancé Jack Brooksbank on Friday, October 12.
Meghan Markle appeared to wear the Queen’s favorite nail polish, Essie Ballet slippers, for her royal wedding to Prince Harry. The pale pink, opaque nail polish shade has been worn by brides and royalty for decades. In fact, the Queen has worn the $9 nail polish for over 30 years. As a royal, if you’re not going to wear your nails bare and buffed, nude nail polish is allowed. Only one particular shade of pink polish is allegedly allowed: Essie Ballet Slippers (so it’s no surprise that it’s the shade Markle picked).
The Duchess of Sussex’s sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, wore the shade Allure by Essie on her wedding day back in 2011.
