Raise your hand if you’re a fan of Essie nail polish.

Queen Elizabeth and Duchess Kate Middleton would have their hands raised, too, if they were reading this.

Yes, the two are fans, according to InStyle. The Queen’s favorite is Ballet Slippers, a pale pink fitting of royalty. Her hairstylist contacted Essie in 1989 to request a bottle, and it’s reportedly the only shade the Queen wears.

Middleton wore Essie’s Allure polish for her wedding to Prince William in 2011. Like Ballet Slippers, Allure is considered a neutral but it comes across more on the white side, rather than pink.

If you want more options, Essie has plenty and told the Zoe Report these are the brand’s top 10 picks for 2017. They are, counting down, Smokin’ Hot, Blanc, Sugar Daddy, Petal Pushers, Topless & Barefoot, Chinchilly, Mademoiselle, Eternal Optimist, Ladylike and Ballet Slippers, a fan and brand favorite, it seems.
