Pretty in a Royal Wedding Nails!

August 3, 2011

In honor of this past weekend’s wedding of Zara Phillips & Mike Tindall, I thought it would be fun to do a post on the latest in Royal Wedding manicures. Although technically Zara & Mike’s wedding was not considered to be a Royal Wedding, she still comes from a royal bloodline and so we’re going to pretend that it was 🙂

Duchess Kate’s manicure on her big day sent Essie’s Allure and – in the UK (luckies!) – Bourjois’ No. 28 Rose Lounge flying off the shelves! According to our friends at Fashionetc.com, Kate was treated to a “Signature Manicure” by the Duchess of Cornwall’s favorite nail stylist, Marina Sandoval at Jo Hansford Salon. Marina collaborated with Kate for an “off-white and bridal” look in a combination of these two nail colors:

Bourjois No. 29 Rose Lounge & Essie Allure

Surprisingly, it was a little difficult to find a really great image of Kate’s wedding manicure, but here’s our best effort courtesy of Flare.com:

Since Bourjois is not available in the US (but let us know if you do find it, or can find out how to get a hold of it), but I was able to find a very similar color in Essie’s Adore-A-Ball. This color alone is a very light, white pink – and when combined with Essie Allure you get a similar color combination! (You can also try two layers of Allure for a more opaque look).

For her bridal manicure, Zara chose to go with another very popular bridal look, the French Manicure:

So, dear readers – what manicured look did you wear on your wedding day – or will you plan to wear someday? 🙂

    You can’t go wrong with a french tip and a pale color. it just makes nails look so much healthier and feminine.

    OPI Bubblebath is great for a touch of soft pink without looking too white or too pink.
