The new spring 2015 nail lacquers available by Christian Louboutin are totally different and quite attractive as a spring or summer design for those nails of yours. The Nail Coffret spring collection is a limited edition one, as so many of the Christian Louboutin nail lacquers are, and is retailing at $90. While that might seem like a pretty steep price to pay for color that’s placed on your nails, you might want to take into consideration the brand and the fact that Louboutin products never come cheap. If you want the best in quality and hope to be wearing what the stars on the red carpet love to show off, the price may just be worth the perfection of the lacquer.
Artists have been the faithful muses for fashion designers over the years and Christian Louboutin is no exception; the latest nail lacquer collection known as the Vulcano collection is owed to the late Jackson Pollock, whose paint splatters inspired the creation of the blue and yellow pops creating a lovely python print. The whole of the illusion is quite lovely and we do expect it to be worn more often than not during celebrity outtings, wherein the first fashion focused nail polish of Christian Louboutin’s will become the next biggest trend in Hollywood. The Python Vulcano Coffret lacquer includes a True Blue periwinkle inspired by the Madonna song, a Salanu white that is an opaque cement color similar to the shoe of the same name, and a Hot Chick yellow, which has a seductive yet playful feel to it similar to the Hot Chick shoe, all housed in a decorative package and all three coming in together for the small price of $90. Sounds a lot more reasonable now, does it not? It was with nail art whiz Madeline Poole that Louboutin pulled together this incredible new nail trend. With the True Blue base put on, splatters of Salonu and Hot Chick can be added using a detail brush, before finishing off with a Loubi Gloss.
The 52-year-old French footwear designer has certainly outdone himself with the new nail lacquers. The man who became famous for his red lacquer soled black heels does art with fashion combinations rather well it seems. Founded in 1991, the brand has grown immensely and now pulls in a revenue of over $250 million a year from shoes alone. Considering Princess Caroline of Monaco was his first customer back when he opened his first shoe salon in Paris, we can certainly understand how and why Louboutin’s career as a designer has taken off through the roof. Then again, the pieces speak for themselves and the Python theme in shoes and bags, as well as limited edition nail colors truly are a captivating sight. According to Louboutin’s path take, it appears that fashion will influence his beauty products and the reverse can be said to be truth as well. Furthermore, it appears as if the colors themselves are rather akin to the ceremonial flags of Italy’s Palio di Siena.
