Louboutin AND nail polish? Certainly the mention of these two should be enough to make me weep with excitement, right?
Sadly, not quite. I mean, I don’t think I need to proclaim my love all all things re-soled (my soul is red, by the way, see what I did there?) and well, nail polish is, NAIL POLISH. Double love.
It is also lovely that the first item on the CL beauty line, announced a couple of years ago is a Loubi sole red varnish – given the colour on the soles was indeed inspired by nail polish – taken spontaneously from his assistant and painted on.
However, the price is what kills me: £36 for a (beautifully crafted with a spearing 20cm “heel” lid inspired on the ballerina shoes created in collab with David Lynch *drool*) bottle. Yes, my friends, £36.
I might bite my tongue, but although I have plenty of frivolous moments (way more than I can afford), I don’t think I can bring myself to pay £36 on a bottle of nail varnish, even if it is Loubi red. Or can I?
The bottle is beautiful and I could be compelled to get it just for the collect-ability of it but I also think about that HUGE lid, hopefully we can detach and be left with a smaller, more application friendly one!
September will see the launch of 30 shades – nudes, noirs, pops, base and top coats. But we all know Louboutin Rouge is what we want… How pretty is that?
So, do you think it is worth it?
