Ballet Slippers first became known as one of the Queen's beauty essentials in 1989 when her hairdresser reportedly ordered a bottle to be sent to Buckingham Palace for the monarch, as the Queen supposedly always avoided bright colors on her nails. 

With the Amazon Prime Day sale bringing big discounts on plenty of beauty favorites, including Kate Middleton's nourishing rosehip face oil, a bottle of Essie's Ballet Slippers is a steal at just £5.95 right now.

Reduced from £7.99, Essie's iconic shade, described as a 'smooth and elegant' color with a chip resistant, sheer finish, is an ideal addition to any neutral nail lover's polish collection. 

While Ballet Slippers was reportedly the Queen's favorite nail shade, the Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, is also a fan of the delicate color.

Kate even wore another Essie offering on her wedding day, reportedly opting for a super similar pinky-nude shade when it came to her pre-nuptial manicure.

It was Essie's Allure combined with the Bourjous 28 Rose Lounge that that pro manicurist, Marina Sandoval, is believed to have painted on Kate's nails before she tied the knot with Prince William in 2011.

Allure and 28 Rose Lounge have both been discontinued by the brand, however Ballet Slippers is the perfect option to replicate Princess Catherine's elegant wedding nails.
