Good morning my fellow Lacquered Lovers! Happy Thursday! Today, I wanted to share with you a splurge of mine that I am super excited about. Christian Louboutin released a line of 50 nail lacquers earlier this Fall in a gorgeous, custom bottle that as a collector and lover of all things nail polish, I simply had to buy. The bottle was created to resemble the classic Louboutin shoes (which used red nail polish originally to color the soles) and has a hefty $50 price tag. The collection has everything from nudes to brights to metallics to darks. Now, without further ado, onto the polish!
Well, as all of my blog readers know, I love blue nail polish. It's probably my favorite color. And Christian Louboutin Wherever does NOT disappoint! This was a one coater, although I used two just out of habit. But really, this is what the shade looked like after one. The Sephora website describes it as being an ink blue but I would say it's somewhere between ink and cobalt, slightly darker than a royal blue but not yet navy. It's absolutely stunning and went on so well. The 6 inch handle took a bit of getting used to but was surprisingly easy on my non-dominant hand. I actually LOVED this polish!
Is it worth the $50 price tag? Well, no, probably not. But I bought this as a collectors piece, not to switch all my daily nail polishes to this price range. The bottle is gorgeous and now lives on my book shelf to be displayed. I will probably purchase a few more because the formula was fantastic and I love the bottle (plus my nails felt very fancy wearing $50 nail polish) but I certainly wouldn't get every color, will keep it for the special ones.
What did you think of this polish? Would you spend $50 on these?
