Catherine Middleton's Wedding Nails

The regal gown, the flawless hair, the Cartier tiara—the newly crowned Duchess of Cambridge, HRH Princess Catherine looked nothing short of perfection as she wed Prince William today...right down to her fingertips. According to her manicurist, Marina Sandoval of the London based Jo Hansford Salon, Kate opted for a classically chic, pinky nude manicure with the help of essie Allure, a timeless sheer pink that creates a look for any bride, princess or not.

"I am so thrilled that Kate chose to wear Allure on her big day," says Essie Weingarten, Founder and President of essie cosmetics. "The world watched as William slipped that gorgeous gold band on Kate's fingers and her manicure was the perfect complement. It truly suited her beautifully."
