Meghan Markle Is Already Following the Royal Nail Polish Customs
There was a lot to take in from the news of the Royal engagement yesterday — from the Prince’s sweet proposal story to the gorgeous coat Markle wore for the announcement (which has since been renamed for her, BTDubs) — so you could be forgiven if you missed something as seemingly trivial as her nail polish. As it turns out, the shade (or lack thereof) was actually quite significant, however.
As those in the know are aware, the Queen has been wearing Essie Ballet Slippers ($9) since 1989, a shade the Duchess of Cambridge has since adopted as well. While Royal rules dictate that colored nail polish should not be worn in public, natural-looking varnish, such as the barely there hue Ballet Slippers affords, is acceptable.
While Markle’s not quite a royal just yet, she seems to already be following the sartorial code of conduct, at least when it comes to her fingertips.
People were quick to notice the Suits actress’ mani while showing off her stunning custom engagement ring, and the hue she chose for her big day seemed *very* similar to, if not the exact shade of Ballet Slippers so beloved by the rest of the Royal fam.
From the looks of things, our girl is taking to her new status just fine!
