Everyone knows Kate Middleton is a bit of a fashion icon, but it turns out her style doesn't reach all the way from tip to toe.

You'll never see the Duchess of Cambridge with coloured nails - she chooses to use nude or natural shades instead.

What will Middleton mimics do when confronted with choosing a bright new nail colour?

Not even sleuthing through her past will bring any joy. Middleton has only been photographed once with a manicure, pulling out all the stops on her wedding day.

She didn't even wear nail polish to announce her engagement to Prince William in 2010:

Apparently the Royal dress code strictly forbids bright nail colours.

But for some reason it does allow for absolutely insane hats à la Princess Beatrice.

Maybe she got away with it because it's nude colour.
