Have you ever noticed that the Duchess of Cambridge is never seen wearing nail polish out in public?

But if she does ever get the nail polish urge, she can be sure that there is one colour the Queen will fully approve of: Essie’s Ballet Slippers. A light, pinkish nude (of course) the Queen has been wearing since 1989. (Though Kate did wear a different shade to wed Prince William.)
