Essie's Ballet Slippers is a delicate pale pink polish that spans the seasons and skin tones, earning it a top spot among cult beauty favorite products. Not only has it been a classic among nail polish fanatics for years, but apparently it has a pretty big fan who calls it a favorite.

It turns out that Queen Elizabeth is actually a fan of the subtle pink shade and has been for nearly 30 years. Wow. Rumors surfacing on the Internet say that way back in 1989, the Queen's hairdresser requested a bottle of the powdery shade via a personal letter from founder Essie Weingarten. And from there, the rest is history. 



The $9 best-selling Ballet Slippers has been the go-to of Queen Elizabeth since the '80s. And honestly, we can see why. It's a sheer pink that's so barely there yet totally there. It won't clash with any of the Queen's skirt suits, fascinators, or crown. What's not to love? And who knows, perhaps Meghan Markle will even follow the Queen's footsteps and make Ballet Slippers her royal go to!
