Kate Middleton is not only the princess-to-be, she has become a world-wide style icon. Who can forget the royal blue Issa London dress she wore at the reveal of her and Prince William’s engagement or her 18-carat sapphire engagement ring (formerly Princess Di’s)? Since the wedding announcement, duplicates and replications of her fashion sense have been selling out left and right. Everybody wants to be a princess! There’s no denying that the princess-in-waiting has inspired the fashion world. Kate has also been the inspiration of some upcoming cosmetic products.

Royal Wave Beautifully polished nails are necessary for any princess. Hands definitely get their time in the limelight with all that hand waving. Maybe that’s why a couple of nail care companies have created nail polishes inspired by the lovely Kate.

butter LONDON has created a limited edition polish in honor of the upcoming royal wedding. The highly pre-ordered No More Waity, Katie is available this month and described as “a soft, elegant greige shade with a splash of lilac glitter.” Greys (especially in the gun-metal color range) will be very popular this Spring. If you fancy glitter polishes or you’re looking for a new brand or polish finish to try, this may be a polish worth investing in.

If nudes, also popular this Spring, are more your taste, Kate by Nails Inc. is available along with the entire royal wedding collection. This more subdued hue has often been seen on the Kate, maybe so the ring stands out that much more. And check out the blue crystal-encrusted cap of the bottle, inspired by the stone of the infamous ring.

Highly Notable One can safely assume that a princess always smells nice, perhaps of a subtle scent so as not to come off too loudly. Kate has inspired at least one Spring collection in the fragrance world.

Royal Shower As a public figure, Kate is photo-ready at all times. Flawless skin is a must for a princess and spa companies are following suit to honor the royal wedding.

Inspired by the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Natural Spa Factory has launched the body scrub, Royal Scrub. Director, Emma Webber said “this hasn’t quite got the Royal seal of approval, but any bride to be will enjoy this effective exfoliation treatment before their big day.” For a spa experience fit for royalty, you may be interested in this champagne, pomegranate and fennel seed product.
