Earlier this year Christian Louboutin debuted their beauty range with a line of nail polishes, first a signature red shade before launching more colours ranging from bright colours to nude and rich autumn shades.
Those cylinder-shaped polishes started at a budget-friendly £36, but their latest offering, the Rouge Louboutin Starlight, costs a lot more – £495/$675 to be precise.
And here’s why: the Rouge Louboutin Nail Colour has been transformed into a rare exquisite jewel with 1,500 two-tone Strass crystals hand applied with the utmost attention to detail, creating a reflective garment that magnifies the architecture of the faceted glass bottle and extreme height cap, glorifying the iconic red nail colour.
The glimmering Rouge Louboutin is preciously encased in a velvet soft black insert, sitting in a jewellery-like box with a black lacquered finish, showcasing a red reveal. Two leather and Strass flowers borrowed from Fall 2014 ‘Pensamoi’ rest delicately as a decorative accent on the box cover.
Only 1,000 pieces have been made available worldwide due to the intricate handcrafting of the process Rouge Louboutin Starlight.
