From the heirloom tiara to the significance behind her veil, Meghan Markle's wedding look was full of nods to her new family. It doesn't stop there, either. The Royal Family's influence trickled down to Meghan Markle's wedding manicure.

The Duchess of Sussex chose to wear a neutral pink nail polish color for her big day. While the exact shade is unclear at the moment, we know that the Queen and Kate Middleton are fans of Essie's pink-beige hues. Queen Elizabeth II is said to wear only Essie's Ballet Slippers, while sister-in-law Kate Middleton wore the brand's Allure shade for her wedding. According to Vanity Fair, the Queen has strict guidelines in place that prevent members of the Royal family from wearing colored nail polish.

Meghan first started embracing the neutral nail rule from the moment she and Prince Harry announced their engagement, and she doesn't seem to stop anytime soon.
