If your loved one has a spare £500, ask them to pick you up this limited edition piece from Christian Louboutin Beauté
If you are feeling flush this Christmas, a £495 nail polish has to be the most luxurious way to treat yourself. Christian Louboutin’s nail colour is already on our wish list and all colours come in show-stopping bottles, but the designer has uped the ante for the festive season and given his original Rouge Louboutin Nail Colour a sparkling makeover with this glamorous Starlight version.
Adorned with 1,500 hand-applied strass crystals, this bottle is more of an objet d’art than an everyday nail polish. Only 1000 have been made, due to the painstaking hand-crafted nature of the design, making it a real collector’s piece – if you’ve got the spare cash.
Nestled inside a velvet-lined case, which is embellished with the same blossoms seen on Louboutin’s Pensamoi shoe (an inspiration for this piece), the bottle (as with all Louboutin nail colours) is eight-inches tall, mimicking the Louboutin Ballerina Ultima heel.
Louboutin has made Strass crystals a signature sign of his work, adding sparkle and shine to some of his most popular styles, such as Body Strass and Pigalle Follies Strass Degradé. So if you’ve already got a collection of Louboutin embellished pieces going, why not add this to your list and light up your Christmas with the ultimate luxury buy.
