Start practicing your princess wave and dust off the tiara—manicures are about to get the royal treatment! Essie creator Essie Weingarten took some regal inspiration for the winter collection’s six bold hues, which range from delicate turquoise to vivid crimson. “It’s one part Queen Elizabeth, two parts Duchess of Cambridge. They don’t mince words and never mince color,” she said. “I just love the elegant simplicity of a saturated, vibrant look. It’s so luxe, yet so easy to put together.” Apparently the crown jewels are getting some serious competition! The new nail polish colors ($8 each) hit stores in November, but you can preview all the shades in our gallery now! Click “See the Photos” to get a closer look.

Don’t call it Big Ben—it’s now Elizabeth Tower! Parliament just approved the London landmark’s renaming in honor of Queen Elizabeth‘s Diamond Jubilee—her 60th year on the throne. Fun fact: “Ben” only refers to the giant bell at the top of the tower, though the nickname has extended to the entire structure in recent years. So technically, it hasn’t had a proper name until now—and perfect timing, too. Congrats, Lilibet! Click through for our favorite moments from the Diamond Jubilee.
