He did it: Christian Louboutin managed to combine his label’s iconic red soles with the glam rock features of his shoe line, introducing three new red nail colors just in time for summer 2016. To be fairly honest, we should, however, say that surprisingly the red paint came way before the red sole. Before becoming internationally renowned for his iconic designs, Christian Louboutin wasn’t adding the notorious red shade to his shoes, as he began painting it red only after a while just to make his proposals stand out from those of his competitors.
Christian Louboutin nails came full circle in 2014, when he took his trademark red sole and translated it to a glamorous array of red-shaded beauty products that have just welcomed three new, equally glamorous additions. Christian Louboutin’s beauty line has grown in numbers during these past two years, and now comprises a grand total of 31 different shades, from the iconic reds to bright yellows and go-with-everything nudes.
As for these latest three addition, we can definitely state the polishes are appealing due to their packaging too. Named Lady Peep, Edgy Popi and Jazzy Doll, the three Christian Louboutin red nail polishes are all housed inside spiked glass bottles that blissfully mimic Louboutin’s iconic catwalk heels. As much as Louboutin’s stilettos, these nail polishes use equally strong and fierce formulas, and provide a long-lasting manicure with a glossy coverage that is basically to die for. To top it all off, the polishes come in a glamorous nude-colored box that will make you feel the urge to go and check Louboutin’s latest nude makeup proposals too.
Priced at $50 each and available at Sephora, Nordstrom and christianlouboutin.com, the new red nail colors perfectly recall summer vibes and parties, and are meant to be worn either during the daytime, to any informal event, or at nighttime when partying our with friends. Christian Louboutin’s newest red nail polishes bring in three different undertones, which make each of the shades unique and one-of-a-kind. Edgy Popi, which could be described as the cheerful and fresh one, features a bright orange-red paint that is just perfect for any shiny sunny summer day. It’s a very classic shade of red, and basically a must-have in any beauty bag.
Jazzy Doll, on the other hand, abandons the orangey undertones in favor of bold, peony undertones, which glimmer in the sunlight. Its sparkles will look good with any kind of shimmery/metallic accessories too. Lastly, Lady Peep is probably the darkest and most sensual one, with its deep raspberry undertones and highly pigmented textures. If you are looking for a nail polish to impress, this one won’t let you down for sure!
