Essie’s Ballet Slippers Nail Polish ($8) is the perfect hue for every day wear. A few years after the lacquer came out, Queen Elizabeth II immediately started wearing it. “This always elegant lacquer was born in 1982 and received royal blessings from the Queen of England, just seven years after its birth,” the company shared with Today back in 2017. “Elizabeth II’s hairdresser sent (the brand’s founder) Essie Weingarten a letter requesting the shade to be directly delivered to Buckingham Palace in London!” After that, the queen never looked back. Essie’s Ballet Slippers Nail Polish is a simple, stunning color and a great neutral to have in your arsenal. It will go with practically anything and everything you wear!
