Royal wedding nail art is here… but we're not entirely convinced it will catch on

We'll stick to Essie's 'ballet slippers', thanks

Royal wedding mania has officially infiltrated everything: we've seen novelty biscuits, crips, masks, coasters, and mugs, but now the latest Harry and Meghan inspired craze is nail art – and it's definitely not a subtle option. Russian nail salon 'Nail Sunny' are renowned for their slightly unconventional looks, but this one is even more bizarre than their usual ones (and we thought we had seen it all when they unveiled their 'teeth' mani). Instead of a pretty embellished crown, or perhaps a delicate diamond ring, the manicurist has created a 3-D version of Harry and Meghan… if you really want it, of course.

We're not fully sold on this piece of royal wedding memorabilia yet

Nail Sunny told us that they were inspired to create the look as "everyone was watching the fairytale ceremony and [they] weren't an exception", so their followers asked for a "special wedding nail art". The completed look features a miniature Meghan in her stunning Givenchy gown, and Harry in his smart Army uniform, which may sound a little better on paper than in real life. We're not entirely sure about the facial hair, and Meghan's make-up is slightly heavier than her dewy and natural look on the big day.

Meghan's natural look isn't quite replicated in the manicure

Plus, what about performing basic tasks with the nails? We can't imagine bathroom habits would be too swift with the threat of snapping off a royal's head every time you’re desperate to go. And also, the veil must be a nightmare getting caught in every zip as you try and root through your bag…

The full video shows their step by step process of how they created the design, and it's definitely a lot more fiddly than our go-to slick of nude and a top-coat. But still, it's far better than we could ever do, and we definitely admire the creativity – especially with the tiara! And if anyone is a royal superfan, it's definitely us, so perhaps we should give it a go. So what are your thoughts – would YOU give it a try?
