Christian Louboutin Wherever Swatches and Review!

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?
