Christian Louboutin’s nail collection honestly has some of the best nail colors I’ve ever seen. The packaging alone is jaw-dropping. Each bottle is like a miniature piece of art that should be placed in a prominent spot in your bathroom for your viewing pleasure. There are three collections: The Nudes, The Noirs, and The Pops, and, of course, the signature Rouge, which Annie already covered here.
Personally, I prefer the Nudes. There’s a perfect pastel chocolate brown called Zoulou and an almond green called Alta Perla that both make me so very happy. Someone finally figured out how to do subtle, yet saturated color in the chicest way. Louboutin even pulls off a tasteful cotton candy pink, Tres Decollete, that is somehow elegant, laid back, Parisian and fun. I’ve never gotten so many compliments on my manicure. It’s like when you get a facial and everyone tells you that you’re glowing, but can’t seem to put their finger on why… That understated but notable difference is due to Christian Louboutin’s killer nail collection.
For those of you who can’t get enough of his signature shoes with the bright red bottoms, he’s now got that covered in the nail department too. Louboutin just launched a new polish, Loubi Under Red, in the classic red color everyone knows and loves. Apply with the dainty brush to give the underside of your nail a boost of color, or use a precise sponge to apply all over color on your nail beds. The small brush is also great for creating nail designs. I smell a new trend coming on heavy: black nails with glossy Louboutin red underneath? So gothic chic you might just turn into a Vampire princess. I can’t think of any better way to do Halloween. Who knew the reigning king of shoes would take the throne in the land of nail color?
Loubi Under Red retails for $45 and will be available on christianlouboutin.com starting Oct. 13.
