A quick search of the hashtag #MeghanMarkle on Instagram right now will bring up all types of inspiration from the British Fashion Awards last night: hair, wardrobe, how to still look ridiculously great halfway through pregnancy. But, the bit that we’re fixated on in the office today is her manicure. Sure, nails are kind of our thing, but Markle’s *rumoured* decision to break Royal protocol in the name of a really nice manicure is something we’re most definitely in support of.
We’ve done a little digging (procrastinating), and think we may have found the colour in question. CND’s Dark Dahlia. The ‘rich, blood-toned’ shade is ideal for the party season – cliché, sure, but true. Plum Paisley and Fedora would also tick that dark mani box. I’d suggest going for gel, or shellac, if you’re trying this spectrum of shades, to avoid chips, and guarantee that high-gloss finish.
Props to Meghan for appreciating the joy of a really great nail colour, and bypassing the classic ‘nude’. Sure, Essie Ballet Slippers looked mighty fine on her big day, but this one’s a seasonal winner.Book your manicure
