Happy Valentine’s Day Pretty Polishers!
When you think of the perfect Valentine’s Day nail polish what comes to mind? For me it’s Rouge Louboutin from the Louboutin Nail Polish Collection.
I was lucky enough to be gifted this beautiful, stunning polish for my birthday from a friend. I was elated when I opened my gift! I had been coveting this polish for a long time along with every other nail polish addict out there. As Christian Louboutin stated: “The red sole was born from red nail polish. I am giving back to nails what the shoe took from the nails many years ago.” He indeed created his infamous red bottom shoes by using a bottle of red nail polish and painting the bottom of the shoe red. That is when his signature red sole shoe was born!
Louboutin released an entire line of gorgeous nail polish last year in August. It was the start of his branching out to a beauty line. The collection of 30 polishes includes nudes, pops, and noirs. It is the most expensive nail polish in the market right now at $50 a bottle, but for a collector and nail polish lover like myself, it’s worth it to get at least the classic red Louboutin bottle. Each glass bottle has an eight inch pointy cap that clearly stands out from any other polish. There is even a limited edition Strass crystal encrusted bottle called “Starlight” that retails at $675!!! WOW! Here is a pic of the amazing bottle:
Let’s just say for now I will admire my $50 bottle! 🙂 It is still a stunning piece. Now onto the facts, is this polish really worth $50? The formula is fantastic. Very very smooth and easy to apply. The color is very pigmented and bright. The brush is thick and easy to work with on the nail. The giant wand bottle top takes a little getting used to, but it doensn’t deter from applying the polish. Louboutin nail polish is sold at Saks Fifth Avenue and Sephora. I was at Sephora the other day and couldn’t resist take pics of the hard to miss Louboutin display. In case you’re interested, here it is!
I would have to say I am in love with this Louboutin polish. It is quite pricey, but I see it as an investment that will be worth a lot one day. So for me, yes the $50 are worth it! I was saving this beauty for a special occasion, so Valentine’s Day seemed very fitting. What are your plans today? I am going to see the 50 Shades of Grey movie with my bf who surprised me with tickets!
Whatever you do today, make sure you do it with love!
Stay strong in your Pursuit!
