Two days after the highly anticipated arrival of the royal baby, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have revealed the very first peek at their brand new bundle of joy. Appearing for a quick photo session at St. George’s Hall in Windsor Castle, the parents were overjoyed by the newest addition to the royal family. Unsurprisingly, the duchess brought her signature style for her first public appearance as a mother, and Meghan Markle's white nail polish is certainly going to inspire your next manicure.

Historically, royals opt out of nail polish altogether. Kate Middleton generally keeps her nails bare, but decided to bend on her wedding day, wearing Essie's best-selling sheer baby pink shade, Ballet Slipper. It's no secret that Meghan is one to push boundaries when it comes to royal style, and the former actor has even gone for bold jet black nail polish for royal appearances in the past. For this particular occasion, Markle chose a creamy ivory, similar to the shade she wore in her engagement photos.

Dressed in a cream-colored sleeveless wrap dress and nude pumps, the new mom was radiant as she gushed over the "two best guys in the world." Cradling the sleeping baby boy, the 37-year-old flashed the subtle manicure, accompanied by a simple gold necklace, peachy cheeks, and a rosy pink lip.

With bold neon hues and mixed prints trending for spring, an understated manicure might be the best bet for fashion girls who plan on trying out daring trends this season. A simple nude or off-white hue akin to Markle's is never a bad choice, and it's clearly appropriate for any and all occasions, including a visit to the queen's quarters.

Ahead, The Zoe Report rounded up the prettiest shades to emulate Markle's look, all of which are perfect for your upcoming summer manicure.
