We realized we were going to need to find a way to pass the time at our Royal Sleepover, after feasting on the food buffet and before TV coverage starts around 4 a.m. Given our staff's beauty junkie tendencies, the answer was clear: manicures. So we asked OPI's Executive VP & Artistic Director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann to create a few Royal Wedding-inspired nail designs for us—and send a manicurist over to the Soho House on the 28th to recreate the looks.

Above are the two manicures Suzi came up with—one glam design featuring Kate Middleton's signature sapphire blue; the other, a more subtle style (that you may want to consider for your wedding). To recreate these designs at your sleepover, just follow Suzi's instructions:

Look #1: Rosy Future and Alpine Snow
Apply one coat of OPI Base Coat. Let nail dry.
Apply two thin coats of Rosy Future. Wait for nails to dry between each layer.
Apply two thin coats of Alpine Snow at the base of each nail to create a moon shape from right to left.
Wait for nails to dry, then apply one coat of OPI Top Coat.

Look #2: Glitzerland with Blue Shatter
Apply one coat of OPI Base Coat. Let nails dry.
Apply two thin coats of Glitzerland. Wait for nails to dry between each layer.
Quickly apply one thin coat of Blue Shatter over the entire nail. Use a little pressure for a more shattered look.
Wait for nails to dry, then apply one coat of OPI Top Coat.
