Lo and behold, this nail junkie gave into something I thought it would go amiss: the gorgeously packaged Christian Louboutin in Louboutin Rouge.
Admittedly, I didn’t actually buy it; it came in my stocking, so I feel I didn’t contradicted myself that much. Although I left it pretty open, I went on about the price quite a bit in a post when the launch was announced.
Anyway, here it is. The colour is, of course, the perfect red sole red. The polish itself is of a fantastic quality, with one coat delivering the perfect coverage.
I ended up going for two coats, because you know, it’s me. Maybe I shouldn’t as I think for that reason it took a while to dry completely. It was surface-dry (to touch) really quickly, but a harsh knock showed it was still drying underneath.
Still, it dried in reasonable time. The colour is vivid, finish glossy and lovely. Have to say, as a red nail polish lover, this really hits the spot.
The brush was of reasonable size, the extremely long cap (which is gooooorgeous) gets in the way of application a little bit; it is just too awkward, I am not going to lie.
I then applied beautiful half moons by cutting Girlznailz wraps in Gold Thunder then applied Seche Vite topcoat.
Do I think it is worth £36? My vanity says yes, yes, yeeees – great quality polish, fantastic shade, optimum durability. My mind says *probably* not. And I use “probably” very loosely here. If anything, the awesome bottle it comes in makes it sooooo worth it. So basically, I am still undecided, leaning towards yes. May be.
But boy, do I love it?
The shoes are Christian Louboutin Zappa.
