Designer Christian Louboutin has made his mark with red soles, and now Louboutin is about to leave another kind red footprint. The shoe maven is entering the beauty realm in the most relevant way by creating a line of signature nail polishes. Upon hearing this delightful news, I took a little “lunch break” to see this fabulous display at Saks; when you’re only ten blocks away, why not?
The entire collection will feature 30 shades that will be debut August 31st, but today you can buy the infamous Rouge Louboutin shade, which is the same color as the brand’s infamous red soles, at Saks.com or Saks’ flagship store here in NYC. WWD reports that this “month-long lag in distribution rollout between the red polish and the 30 remaining shades is designed to give the Rouge enamel its own time in the merchandising spotlight.”
The Christian Louboutin nail polish bottle is unlike any other bottle in your nail collection, with a distinct, architectural bottle and cap that resembles a calligraphy pen. It’s eight inches long and is modeled after the eight-inch heel of Louboutin’s Ballerina Ultima. This ultra long cap will makes for one luxurious applying experiences, and this shade will be a sure knockout with whichever pair of Louboutins you choose (or any shoe – a touch of Louboutin lacquer will always do you good).
But, of course, what’s a Louboutin product without the Louboutin price tag? These nail polishes will cost you $50 each, and you can try yours today at Saks.
