Kim Kardashian and Queen Elizabeth II have this beauty buy in common

I don’t know what’s more surprising: the fact that Queen Elizabeth II and Kim Kardashian have something in common, or that either of them purchase anything from the same drugstore beauty brands that us mere mortals do.

That’s right. The Queen of England and the Queen of Selfies both swear by the same brand of nail polish. If you’re not familiar with essie, you may want to get acquainted! If you pop into a Priceline, you can pick up one of their polishes for about $15.

According to the essie website, Queen Elizabeth’s hairdresser wrote a letter to Essie Weingarten (founder of essie) in 1989 requesting a polish. It was the classic, pale pink shade Ballet Slippers which was “the only color Her Majesty would wear”.

Queen Elizabeth isn’t the only royal to wear the polish. Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton wore essie nail polish for her wedding day in 2011.

And as for Kim, if you do regularly keep up with the Kardashians, you may have noticed that Kim is often sporting nude nail polish. Earlier this month, The Zoe Report revealed that the sandy biege colour was essie’s Sand Tropez.
