Meghan Markle Debuts Dark Nail Polish at British Fashion Awards

Unless you’re currently in the midst of an Instagram hiatus, then you probably know Meghan Markle made major waves on Monday night when she made a surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards to honor Givenchy artistic director Clare Waight Keller, who designed her wedding dress, with the Womenswear Designer of the Year award. The Duchess stepped out wearing a gorgeous asymmetrical black velvet gown by the French brand, chunky gold bracelets, and a low, sleek chignon and sultry (in a royal way) makeup. And to top it off? Glossy dark nails — the one beauty move some might say breaks royal protocol.

But does it actually? As it turns out, despite it being rumored that the Queen doesn’t like colored lacquer, wearing dark nail varnish to an evening of sartorial celebration actually isn’t contesting with any royal rules. In fact, royal correspondent Omid Scobie told Harpers Bazaar that no such royal protocol regarding dark nail polish exists. “It’s simply about being appropriate,” he clarified, adding, “We’d never see this at a royal engagement but tonight’s event is a celebration of fashion and there’s a lot more flexibility on what one can wear.”

There’s your official confirmation, folks. In other words, while it might be true that the Queen isn’t a fan of colorful nails (and hey, to each their own), it’s now royally clear that the Duchess still maintains the freedom to make her own choices and sport the beauty looks she likes. In this case, peachy-pink lips and soft smoky eyes paired with a noir nail (or was it a deep eggplant?) is what suited Markle’s mood. And we must admit, we’re obsessed.
