Do you love Louboutin enough to pay $50 for his nail polish?

Louboutin nail polish

Thought the Christian Louboutin nail polish would be your chance to buy into the Louboutin dream without spending your entire paycheck on his shoes?

It might be, but it'll still cost you a pretty penny.

The Rouge Louboutin nail polish, out today at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York and Louboutin boutiques in the US, costs a shocking $50 per bottle.

What superpowers does this nail polish have to warrant the hefty price tag, you might ask? Two-milisecond drying time? A month without chipping? Stunning new colors that you can't get elsewhere for less?



According to Louboutin executives, the nail polish has the highest percentage of pigment in the industry. Apart from this, the product's only point of difference is the handmade bottle, reminiscent of Wolverine and Maleficent. Caveat emptor: the spiky top lid looks like a potential death threat to young children, pets or anyone staggering around your dressing table in a drunken state.

The good news is that Louboutin disciples can now enjoy a 100% matchy-matchy look with their toenails painted the same color as their soles.

The bad news is that if you aren't a Louboutin disciple, this nail polish isn't really for you.

Louboutin has to keep prices high to maintain its luxury brand status. But you have to admit that $50 per bottle is a bit ... ridiculous.

Still want your piece of Louboutin? Skip the nail polish, save the money for sales and buy the shoes.

  1. The packaging is gorgeous - and if I had extra space I might even buy it just to set it out - but I agree the shoes are way more worth a splurge.

  2. The packaging is fantastic, but for $50 there doesn't seem to be much nail polish actually in there. If I had it, I probably wouldn't use the polish, only look at the bottle.

  3. The package is amazing! I would not even care for the nailpolish inside, I just want it for the bottle. But then again, it is very expensive...

  4. I have a pair of Louboutin shoes - 'Lilian' Mary Janes and they are the most uncomfortable shoes I own. Aside that they are absolutely gorgeous I got a really good deal on them, which is why I bought them. However, they are absolutely unwearable. At first I thought it's just that model, but nope - with 'So Kate' is the same thing and so with the pretty much every Loub pump (not sure about sandals). They really 'feel' like those $15 shoes from Payless. Luckily Stuart Weitzman makes just as beautiful, half-a-cost shoes.. and it feels like walking on pillows. Regarding the nail polisher - heck no! That is 2 months worth of gel manicure (including the tip) and no chipping. So yea, it's a huge rip off.
