The exact shade of Rimmel nail-varnish Meghan wore for her engagement pics

*Rushes to shop to buy the same*
Meghan's friend Priyanka just recreated THAT photoshoot for her own engagement

OK, so we’ve examined pretty much every element of that royal engagement shoot.

And we love it.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry: two totally-in-love folk who are releasing sultry snaps to celebrate himself putting a ring on it.

Sadly, Meghan’s Ralph & Russo gown is from the designer’s 2016 couture collection and costs – gulp! – €63,000.

However, other elements of that special moment are rather more affordable.

Case in point? The US actress’s nails are courtesy of Rimmel. Yes, and costing just €8 a bottle, it is thought that she wore the brand’s popular Super Gel Nail Polish in shade 021 New Romantic.

The popular blog MeghansMirror also states: “Several people have also asked about her nail polish, which we believe is the same Rimmel Gel polish she wore in Vanity Fair.”

Duchess Kate, when she married back in April 2011, also opted for an accessible cosmetics brand for her nails.

The then Ms Middleton had her manicurist, Marina Sandoval, create a custom mix of Bourjois So Laque Nail Enamel in Rose Lounge (€6) and Essie Nail Polish in Allure (€10).


Meanwhile, he countdown to Meghan and Harry’s Big Day – definitely the celebrity wedding of the year – is already underway; it takes place on May 19 at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
