The Duchess of Cambridge's nail polish is a lot more affordable than you might think.


Kate Middleton's dresses may be the most talked-about trademark of her signature style, but there's another feature we think deserves a shout-out—her nails. 

The Duchess of Cambridge is known for her groomed fingertips, regularly stepping out with a pink manicure courtesy of Essie's Allure. 

The fashion icon even wore the drugstore brand to her wedding to Prince William in 2011, mixing it with Bourjois' So Laque Nail Enamel in Rose Lounge to achieve a customized nude shade. The stunning result sparked a major cult following, with royal fans and brides-to-be everywhere itching to emulate the duchess's pristine cuticles.

Luckily, you don't need to snap up Allure to look like a princess. Kate Middleton's nail polish rules simply call for followers to adhere to neutral colors and shapes, whilst maintaining a regular filing and cleaning routine. 

A similar shade to the now discontinued Allure is Essie's Ballet Slippers, which is a pinker and slightly more opaque version.

This royal-approved polish has been worn by Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, and even the Queen—and it could be yours for less than $7. 

The US-owned nail polish, which was also worn by Meghan Markle on her wedding day to Prince Harry in 2018, is currently on sale at 40% off for Amazon Prime Day at a fraction of its normal price. Normally retailing at $11.11, the delicate shade could be yours for just $6.66—less than the price of two coffees. 

To look as good as Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, we think that's a pretty decent steal.
