These 3 Limited Edition miniature nail colours are enclosed in a decorative box featuring the Spring 2015 Python Vulcano print made of blue and yellow tones splashed over a grey to off-white python motif. Each Louboutin mini is 0.2 fl oz. The set retails for $90. It is a splurge but considering each Louboutin polish retails for $50 I would say three minis for $90 is not bad. 🙂 Plus they are gorgeous!!!

The 3 limited edition colors include:

  • Salonu: a white cement similar to the shoe of the same name
  • True Blue: a unique periwinkle blue inspired by Madonna’s hit title.
  • Hot Chick: a vivid yellow evoking the playful seductiveness of the Hot Chick shoe.

A first for Christian Louboutin, this nail colour project coincides with a fashion collection. The marriage of fashion and beauty will continue over the coming seasons, as Louboutin’s shoe and bags collections will influence his approach to future designs.

Here are the bags and shoes that inspired this collection:

Each glass bottle has a silver mirrored signature pointy top with a brush that is thick and easy to apply. Now let’s look at each polish individually. I’m warning you – I went on a photo frenzy here. These polishes were all so gorgeous I couldn’t stop snapping pics.

Salonu

Louboutin says this is a cement white but I saw it as a vanilla creme. It is spectacular. Beautifully opaque in 3 coats. I could have left it at 2 but I loved the formula so I wanted to add a third coat to make it extra creamy.

These were taken outdoors under natural sunlight. I’m a tad obsessed as you can tell. 🙂 Just look at that sparkle and shine on the bottle! And creamy perfection polish! Do you blame me?

True Blue

Even though it’s Madonna song-inspired, I wouldn’t preach that out too much because these days Madonna is having some sort of mid-life crisis. Grinding on Jimmy Fallon’s desk, making out with Drake, dressing up like she did in the 80’s… what’s going on Madonna? It’s a bit too much, don’t you think? I love Madonna, but she’s acting a little cuckoo lately. Anywho, onto the polish. This is a fantastic deep periwinkle blue that leans a bit toward purple with a dash of dustiness to it. The formula on this was the best out of the trio. It was opaque in 2 coats and looked glossy and gorgeous! Here’s the Madonna look they were going for (I’d say they nailed it!):

Hot Chick

This is a bright chick yellow. It’s a perfect Spring yellow. Like most yellows the formula was not that great and it went on a bit streaky. I used 3 coats to get it fully opaque but it still didn’t even out perfectly. Nonetheless, it’s still a fantastic color and the bottle top… well it’s HOT!

Ok so after all that swooning… I hope you’re just in love as I am! That or you’re sick of my photos. LOL I love this collection so much. Maybe it’s the high end chic name brand, maybe it’s the crazy sexy cool bottles, whatever it is, I am in love.

The Christian Louboutin Spring 2015 Limited Edition Python Vulcano Trio Collection can be purchased at Sephora, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Louboutin.com. It retails for $90. I know that seems like  A LOT for nail polish and I already got some raised eyebrows and crooked smiles when I tell people what I paid, but if you’re a collector and nail polish lover like me – it’s worth it! Hope you guys enjoyed this post and if you’ve read this far down… I love ya!

What did you think of this collection? Will you splurge too? What is your favorite color from the trio set?

Stay strong in your Pursuit!
