AP and Essie

You might not be able to land a prince, but you can at least snag the pretty nail color Kate Middleton was wearing on her big day!

According to her manicurist, Marina Sandoval of the London-based Jo Hansford Salon, Kate chose Essie's Allure, a pinky nude shade ($8 at The traditional polish pick fit perfectly with the royal bride's traditional style, and looked totally appropriate as Prince William slipped the Welsh gold ring on her finger.

If you're planning your own regal affair, start to indulge in weekly manicures and pedicures beginning at least two months prior, the brand's pros suggest. The extra pampering will get your hands and nail beds super healthy and ready for those photo closeups!
